Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti
This is a wonderful recipe. Italian friends have told me this taste "just the way biscotti is supposed to taste." I reduced pistachios by 1/2 cup and increased the cranberries by 1/2 cup. I also add 1/2 tsp. real orange extract. Otherwise, the recipe is perfect. If you are not getting 3 dozen, you may be making the logs too wide. Make them 2 inches wide and then flatten them slighty. It is a smaller biscotti than those sold in jars at coffee shops. DON'T use butter or margarine. Find a light good quality olive oil. Butter doesn't belong in biscotti--it won't age well and will become rancid instead of allowing the flavor to develop.

Ultimate Double Chocolate Cookies
I never had a chance to find out how long these cookies were supposed to "set" on the cookie sheets because they all disappeared long before the 10 minutes were up! A few substitutions I made because I was working with a pretty basic food supply: 2 2/3 cups chocolate chips is about a pound of semisweet chocolate; add 1/4 tsp baking soda to regular cocoa powder if you can't get "Dutch process"; if you use salted butter, reduce salt by 1/2 amount. Do use parchment paper, but otherwise there is nothing tricky or difficult or fussy about these cookies. I had requests for another batch before I had finished washing up from the first one!

Banana Chip Muffins II
Go ahead and use the two whole eggs--they're not that bad for you. Reduce sugar to 1/2 cup and add 1 tsp. vanilla. I also just use one of those individual servings of applesauce, since that's all we ever have around. Although I wouldn't call this my favorite muffin recipe, the muffins keep well, travel well, freeze & reheat well, plus they are a snap to make. Finally, I haven't met a kid yet who doesn't like them, including my picky middle child who has a penchant for those huge "name-brand" grocery store muffins. Although they don't taste very much alike, he finds these to be an acceptable substitute.
