Tried and true

I like to think that I am a reasonably adventurous cook, indeed The Technical Advisor might be inclined to suggest that I am rather too adventurous
from time to time, he would certainly be happy to see me limit my adventures in cooking with pulses or new things to do with leftovers.

But sometimes, when something is really good, I am just too afraid to veer from the path of sure success. I have a great many biscotti recipes lurking in the depths of my extensive cook book collection. A brief search on-line will reveal many exciting variations on the basic recipe and for a moment I was almost swayed by one featuring Nutella, I mean Nutella in a biscotti? It's probably very good.

But in my heart of hearts I knew all along that I would stick with my usual recipe, the one I have made time after time.

Chocolate and Almond Biscotti from Rachel's Favourite Food for Friends

Because this is a very good biscotti.

Astonishing that something this fabulous contains no butter whatsoever. Practically a health food don't you know. So it's absolutely fine to eat two or three at a time.

When it comes to biscotti you *must* eat two or three at a time! Yum. These are definitely going on the list of recipes to try for knitting group.

I LOVE biscotti! I will have to try your recipe! And I love butter so that's actually not a good thing to me.

I made biscotti for the first time during the christmas holiday, found a recipe online. Quite a bit of work but yummy!

Hey, if it's a health food, I'm all over it LOL! I've never made biscotti, but this looks wonderful!

It looks wonderful! Very appealing. I must admit, though, that I don't steer clear of butter and we get through so much unsalted Lurpak every week it may be quite alarming to some!

Thank you for your comment about my dress.
