Cowgirl Cookies With Pink Peppercorns, Q&A With Josh Hebert, Farro With Coarse Pesto Recipe Review

A round-up of tasty morsels from Valley food blogs.

Meagan of Scarletta Bakes knows how to make an Arizona girl happy. She's been playing with her food and invented a cookie just for the ladies of the wild west containing caramel, cashews, salted pretzel sticks and a special spicy kick - pink peppercorns. Isn't that so clever and inspiring? We love that! Here's the recipe and accompanying dazzling pics.

Alanna Watson at Desert Living Today hung out with Josh Hebert of Posh Improvisational Cuisine and found out what this Arizona native loves to cook in the restaurant kitchen and if he cooks at home. He also shares what someone might expect on any given night at Posh and his favorite restaurant (besides Posh, of course), you might be surprised....

Culinary student Tessa from Handle the Heat makes Giada DeLaurentiis' Farro with Coarse Pesto. We really appreciate the "recipe rundown" on this blog's posts. Here's the rundown for this recipe:

Recipe Rundown Taste: Nutty, cheesy, slightly salty, fresh. A perfect balance of flavors. Texture: This was the first time I had eaten farro and I LOVE it. The texture is wonderful, slightly crunchy and chewy. Ease: The food processor does almost all the work in this recipe Appearance: Rustic yet elegant. Pros: Healthy, keeps well in the fridge, simple. Cons: None. Would I make this again? Already eaten this dish twice!

See? Totally helpful without having to search out these details in a forum or in recipe reviews. Here's the recipe. Cruise around the blog for more great tips and snaps.
