Biscotti

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2012
Like many others, I used 1 tbsp each of almond and vanilla extract in place of anise, and I tossed 1/4 tsp cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves in. It was very mild-flavored and not as sweet as I expected. Next time I make it I will consider adding maybe 1/4 C more sugar. To condense suggestions from other reviews, do not add flour to make the dough less sticky and easier to handle; keep your hands wet and keep rinsing them off when the dough starts to stick while you're shaping it. As soon as you pull the two rolls from the oven transfer both rolls to a cutting board and cut them while they're still soft (place them on the cutting board to avoid scratching the baking pan and also because only one roll, once each piece is laid on its side, will fit in the pan at a time). Try toasting the pieces once they've been laid on their side for 5 minutes; check to see whether they need another minute, and then flip them over to toast the other side for 5 minutes.

Minty Peas and Onions

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
While I think this recipe is great, I would say it is even better to mix in salt to taste and yellow and green bell peppers to add to the color and flavor. In all, it's an excellent way to add a tasty side dish to your Thanksgiving dinner!
