Any Recipes you want to share?
I would love to share a recipe I recently posted for Mocha spice biscotti as it would make a perfect treat for your loved ones this Valentine's Day.


1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup sugar
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
a handful of almonds
1/2 a teaspoon of allspice
2 tablespoon of cocoa
dash of vanilla essence
one tablespoon freshly ground coffee

1. Preheat oven to 375 and grease cookie sheet
2. beat eggs, oil and sugar together
3. slowly add in flour and baking powder , nuts, cocoa, vanilla essence, coffee beans and allspice and stir, it makes a thick and sticky mixture.
4. put on cookie sheet and press down to 1/2 inch thickness.
5. Bake for 25-30 min until golden brown, then remove and let it cool
6. slice the biscotti then bake for about 3 minutes on each side, in fact the word biscotti in Italian means twice baked :-)
7. enjoy!
