Orange Cranberry Biscotti

This recipe worked great on the large Silpat!  I doubled it so we have plenty of cookies for many parties and indulgent afternoons . . .

1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 Tbsp. orange zest
2 Tbsp. orange juice
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 1/4 cups flour
1/4 cup chopped dried cranberries
3/4 cup almonds

Preheat to 350 F.  Mix all the ingredients in mixing bowl and then form two loaves (or if doubled, four loaves as pictured above).  Then bake for 20 - 25 min.  Let cool for approx. 15 min.

Cut (with DAH cake server knife or dull side of butter knife!) on Silpat.  Lay the cut side down and bake for another 15 min.

Cool on Floral Cooling Rack and then store in airtight container.

I couldn't help it, I had to drizzle some chocolate over them too!

Sea Salt

Troubled with winter boredom? Try a salt tasting with Demarle in the Kitchen Sea Salts.

It seems that each salt will have its purpose for you as an individual. The Alaea Hawaiian has a sweet earthy flavor, the Bolivian Rose has a very sharp fine flavor and little is needed on a dish.  The Sel Gris has a pleasant flavor and goes with most anything.

Why not add a salt tasting to your dinner party?  This is a fun interactive way to get your guests involved.  Salt has a limitless shelf life.  It will never go bad.  Even if it gets wet, it just needs to dry out.

Easy Weekend Breakfasts

In the front, a French Toast Casserole.  In the back, a crustless quiche.

To make the French Toast - 
10 slices of Bread
6 eggs 
1 cup milk
1/4 cup syrup
3 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 F.  Tear up the bread and place in your Flexipan of choice (I used the Sunflower Mold here).  Make sure it is on the Perforated Baking Sheet.  Mix up the rest of the ingredients in the Mixing Bowl and pour over bread.  Make sure you press the bread into the egg mixture so that all of it is soaked.  (I love using one of the Set of 3 Spatulas for this.)  Bake for approx. 40 min.

For the Crustless Quiche:
Once the French Toast is in the oven, use the same mixing bowl to whisk up 8 eggs and throw in a cup of sour cream and/or cottage cheese with any veggies you need to use up (I put a cup (or two) of spinach in this one).  Throw in a cup or two of shredded cheese.  Place your favorite Flexipan Mold on the Perforated Baking Sheet (I used the Fluted Bundt Mold for this one).  Pour egg mixture into the mold. and bake with the French Toast until solid. (approx. 35 min.)

Serve with hot coffee, juice, and a plate of fruit and you'll be the star of the weekend!
