I think we need a break from all these sweets! I have been busy baking other goodies for school, friends and family. I can’t seem to get away from the kitchen. Good thing that Santa is bringing me new appliances as I have truly beaten down my stove top and ovens! Until they arrive, I will keep baking and cooking. Since I featured a chocolate biscotti last week, this week I will feature a different biscotti flavor combo: Pistachio-Cranberry Biscotti.
These were made for a good friend’s birthday. I bought her that pretty mug and filled it up with these wonderful biscotti’s. They are very festive for the holiday with the red cranberries, green pistachios and flavored with orange zest. My friend loved them and they were rather simple to make, as most biscotti recipes are.
Sorry for keeping this post short. I am having a hard time being creative with my writing as I have not gotten a lot of sleep. For the past few weeks I have been staying up late and getting up at odd hours to take my 5-year old princess to the bathroom at night. We are trying to get her out of diapers, but she appears to be part camel and seems to store a reserve of fluids in her system. Every three nights she has an accident, no matter how often I rush her to the potty or how much I limit her fluid intake at night. Since the hubby did this for the boys, he said the Princess was my responsibility. Well, I haven’t had decent sleep since I was pregnant with my first child, so after ten years of bad sleep, what’s a few more???
