Gingerbread Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
I enjoyed this recipe. As others have mentioned, they're not super-spiced, but I think that makes more sense for biscotti, as they don't tend to be super-sweet cookies. Dipped in milk or coffee, they taste like Christmas. However, mine didn't turn out crispy; they're more dense and a bit chewey. I have another biscotte recipe that calls for doing an initial bake at a lower tempt for longer, and I may try that next time to see if I get a more biscotti-like texture. And a warning: These really spread out during baking. It's not a negative of the recipe, but I wish I had known that in advance because I would have made my logs narrower.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
I made these on a whim after the recipe popped up during a search, and I read the reviews. I wasn't disappointed. They're sweeter, I think, than biscotti usually is, but if you're making it for a Christmas cookie, which I was, it's fitting. After making a single batch, I bought enough stuff to make a double batch before my Christmas parties. I will add these to next year's Christmas-cookie list.

Turkey Bean Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
This was average. It's a fine basic chili recipe, but it didn't have a whole lot of flavor. I think you miss out by not seasoning the meat. It turns out to be quite bland.
