Biscotti on the brain part two


What’s true for me today is …

Super happy my biscotti worked – that is, super happy they made up in flavor what they may have lacked in visual refinement. Ha!

In truth, having never made them before, I was worried. I brought a plate to work today and left them in the kitchen for my co-workers. I included a sign announcing that they were homemade and eagerly waited for the reviews. Positive! There’s something really satisfying about surprising people with a talent they (and me, in this case) didn’t know you had.

It’s a simple thing, really-making food to share with others. But, I think it was the best thing I did today (at least, so far; the night is young).

What’s the best thing you did today?


Biscotti on the brain


What’s true for me today is …

Very happy it’s Wednesday, the downward slide towards the weekend and relaxation.

Plus, Wednesday night has become Shop-for-the-Week’s-Treat night. So, after I finish posting, I’m headed to the grocery store to buy¬† ingredients for tomorrow night’s baking adventure–lemon pistachio biscotti. I’ve never made biscotti, but I have eaten my fair share, so I hope that lends me some credibility in the kitchen. Fingers crossed. I’ll let you know how they turn out. How great would scratch-n-sniff Internet be right now: inhale, tangy lemon zest; exhale …

What does the aroma of fresh lemon remind you of?
