Video: How to Make Peanut Brittle

This holiday classic is some of the easiest candy to make, and the pay-off is unbeatable! This basic brittle uses peanuts, but you can substitute any nuts, especially roughly chopped almonds, cashews, or macadamia nuts, or even sesame seeds, pepitas, or oats. Add smoked sea salt or cocoa nibs for a little something special.

Fried Calamari

Any place where squid swim you will find a different version of fried calamari. Be sure to rinse and dry the squid thoroughly before seasoning it. You can use both the tubes and the tentacles, but you may want to fry them separately. Sprinkle with sea salt and serve with lemon wedges. Keep it simple and let the calamari speak for itself.
