Ginger Nutmeg Biscotti

Even before I met my Southern Italian man, I’ve been madly in love with Biscotti. There’s something about biting into its hard exterior and then being met with a soft, crumbly inner which makes me happy. Oh so happy. Feeling all cocky, I first tried making my own Biscotti about three years ago and failed dismally. The rolls bent my knife when I tried slicing into them for the second bake. And when I finally managed to cut a slice without it crumbling to bits before my very eyes, it sent me into a fit of hacking coughs. Yes, it was that dry.

Curated: A Weekly Digest 2

Seven whole days have passed since my inaugural Random Love post and those seven days have been insane, insane, insane. First off, Eve was horribly ill and missed an entire week of school, which she then promptly had to make up for by going to school over an hour earlier every day for the ensuing week ~ a concept which does not sit well with me because it’s so counter-productive and that’s a catalyst for another blog post. Secondly, my man had knee surgery and was essentially unable to move or walk for the first few days.

Insert big, fat yawn 🙂 Onward ho with this week’s Random Love. I think you’ll really like my discoveries. Ever wondered why men become gynecologists?  I’ve always been stumped.
