The Toasted Pine Nut

About Me

Howdy Hi! I’m Lindsay.

If I’m being real, this is the first time I’ve ever used the phrase “howdy hi” but… it just felt right, you know?

I’m the chocolate loving lady behind The Toasted Pine Nut and I firmly believe raisins don’t belong in cookies.

What started as a fun creative outlet I cooked up during my kids’ nap time turned into my full-time thing!

Because of my readers, I’ve been able to do some pretty cool stuff like publish my cookbook Cauliflower Power and launch my baking mixes Good & Gooey.

I grew up in New Jersey but a few years ago we needed some more sunshine so we hopped on a plane to California.

When I’m not cooking up my latest recipe, you can find me at the beach watching my kids boogie board, out hiking the trails, and soaking in that warm Cali sun (with sunscreen, of course 😜).

Once you’re here, you’re family! I’ll be offended if you don’t stop by to say hi. Come find me on…
