How good is honey as a nice added taste to foods?

Better than sugar, but still very high in carbs. I'd use it sparingly. When I have a recipe that calls for sugar, I'll sub honey since it's unprocessed (or less processed) and sugar is far from unprocessed.

I get these Italian walnuts in honey and put some in sheep or goat yogurt and, with an espresso in the AM, it is amazing.

There isn't much "nutrient density" in honey. It's pre-digested so it absorbs very very quickly in the blood stream, therefore it's great if you're sick and don't want to tax the digestive system. you do manage to avoid most chemicals that may go into processing sugars. IMHO use it as a sweetener sparingly if you must, but by no means try to add it consciously to your diet!
