Biscotti Toscani
I am not a big fan of biscotti, but I am trying to find a nice dessert with a longer shelf life (for gifts) and also something tasty to sell during the holidays. This is my first attempt at making biscotti & I was a little intimidated. I am happy to say that making biscotti is so EASY! I followed the directions of the recipe except I didn't have orange zest. Instead, I added 1-2 tablespoons of Grand Marnier. The biscotti was a HUGE hit. I tested it at a party & everyone thought I should sell it to Starbucks---so much fresher and tastier! After mixing the dough, I let it sit in the mixing bowl for 10-12 minutes so that it could set up. It made it easier to handle (wet hands helped with the stickiness). Also, I baked the biscotti dough on Silpat sheets and had no problems with sticking. I used a serrated knife & had no problems slicing the biscotti. Also, I added a few extra minutes to the second baking because I like a drier biscotti. I can't wait to experiment with more biscotti recipes!!

Quiche Lorraine I
This was the third type of quiche I made for a PTA brunch I catered last week. This recipe is pretty traditional, but I loved the onions and the cayenne pepper. I sauted the onions in a little butter first. I also reduced the amount of salt based on previous suggestions. One of the guests at the brunch said she had been making Quiche Lorraine for over 20 years and she liked this quiche better than her own! She asked for the recipe too. I would definitely make again, but would like to experiment with the addition of vegetables. Very yummy. Thanks for the recipe!

Garbage Quiche
This was one of the 3 types of quiches I made for a PTA brunch I catered last week for 50 women. I made 2 Garbage Quiches (as deep dish quiches) and they both went so fast!!!! I couldn't believe how much people loved them-the gruyere is awesome! I made one quiche with bacon and the other with grilled chicken and both were hits. The green onion and tomatoes were such a complement. I can't wait to try this quiche again with other vegetables--so many options. By the way, I did re-name the dish--I didn't think Garbage Quiche was too appealing! Ha Ha
