|Senator Hagel and I.|
Today was one of those days where you just want to curl in a ball at your best friend's house, drink coffee and bake. Jean made chocolate orange and cranberry almond biscotti from scratch. I was the official "time keeper quality control" helper :) They were AMAZING.
They were light, fluffy, perfect delicious. I would share the recipe, but Jean is very protective of her baked goods, and quite rightly. We also had americanos with italian espresso...so delicious! My meals up until this point were pretty solidly sweet; a piece of my banana bread for breakfast, a croissant with Nutella for a snack, and a few tiny pieces of biscotti. I was eager for something savory for dinner. And I scored big time with a delicious Sweet Potato and Coconut Milk soup, the recipe for which I will put in my "Food" section.
