Home for the Holidays

Having completed the first semester of military university, I arrived home for the holidays to the picture you see on the right. Italian Christmas baking is always an ordeal in our family. Mom made her usual, revered chocolate chip cookies, but also filbert biscotti drizzled in chocolate, damn-good sugar cookies and shortbread. On my personal list will be some twists on the old classics. Half the fun of Christmas baking is the flipping through of magazines and cookbooks, drooling over the elaborate recipes too intricate or expensive to attempt the remainder of the year. Tis' the season for pine nuts, puffed-pastry, minced-meat, rosemary and orange, dark chocolate (80% + !), etc. Stay tuned...
