I am not a picky eater, but I do not really like nuts and I do not like anise at all. Both are key ingredients in these cranberry-pistachio biscotti that I LOVE so much. I make them every Christmas for gifts and for a cookie to go along side the main dessert at Christmas dinner. (The trick is for me not to eat them between now and then.) Here is a link for the recipe on epicurious. I highly recommend them; the only bother about making them is melting the white chocolate at a low enough temperature so it doesn't seize up. (Oh, and shelling the pistachios, but I find that kind of a mindless task that doesn't bother me.)

This was a good activity for a snowy morning in New England. Here is a photo outside my back porch, so you can see why more baking and wrapping will happen today.

The biscotti sounds delicious!  The snow picture is beautiful!  I'm in Florida, with my a/c running and wearing shorts.  I'd love snow for one day, just one day.

Crocheting is like prostitution.  First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.  Maybe that is why they call us Hookers?

The grass is always greener (or the snow is always whiter) on the other side. Everything is canceled and it takes 20 minutes to get dressed enough to take the dog out. Oh well, I'm happy that we have power. Some of our neighbors in NH are trying to survive this since being without power after an ice storm over a week ago!

Oh well, a Christmas cookie is a Christmas cookie in warmth or cold. Enjoy the cookies and the holidays.
