Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti
This turned out great in both looks and taste! Followed the ingredients exactly. I think the very faint taste of the olive oil really works with the pistachio. After the initial bake, I cooled them 15 minutes in the pan on a rack, then cut by forcing a chef knife right through them. You'll crumble if you saw with a serrated. For the second reduced-temp bake, based on some other recipes I've used, I did one side 8 minutes, then flipped them and baked the other for 12 minutes. Cooled them "standing up" so air would hit both sides of the cookie. Perfection.

Dad's Leftover Turkey Pot Pie
This filling is simply delicious as-is. I use my own homemade pie pastry and include a good pinch of dried thyme in the dough. I prefer, however, to roll out and fill individual pot pies and freeze them for another time. A double-crust pastry recipe plus this filling netted me 10 pot-pies that bake up from frozen at 375º for about 50 minutes. Great use of leftovers, and I use any combination of peas/carrots/beans/corn for the veg, keeping the qty per the recipe.

Strawberry Muffins
2.5 stars, really. As written, this makes for a bland muffin. Perhaps a squeeze of lemon juice over the berries would brighten the flavour--or some zest. Cinnamon would also make a good addition for next time.
