You probably know I’m an addictive person. And the love of my life is a watermelon (Sorry, Max) 😯 But this time, my blog post is not about watermelon (It’s hard to be in love with someone, you meet so rarely). I have one more closely guarded secret…

I just caaaan’t live without spicy appetizers 😉 Especially when they are with cheese and nuts. That’s why, Spiced Biscuits with Cheese and Nuts are just a perfect match – light and savory, soft in the middle and crispy at the sides. I baked it once and immediately fell in love. Since then these crispy crackers are my comfort food and every time I fell really low or sad, the heavenly aroma from the oven makes my mind calm and relaxed.  Spiced Biscuits with Cheese and Nuts are super simple to make, and it’s easy to eat more than one! (Don’t say, I didn’t  warn you, it can be addictive!).
