Cherry Almond Biscotti - Carrie's Experimental Kitchen

A nice recipe from Carrie's Experimental Kitchen.
I saw this and I knew I will make them. You can't go wrong with these ingredients.
Biscotti is the perfect crunchy companion to your cup of coffee.

Click on the link to see the recipe: Carrie's Experimental Kitchen: Cherry Almond Biscotti: This past Saturday, I had to make some items for a bake sale and wanted to try out a new variation of biscotti. That, and I was cleaning out...


Here is what I baked today. My first biscotti :-)

Don't you think cherry and almond is the perfect combination? I've never made biscotti before, I know it takes a while and you bake it twice. Now I found the perfect one. I love dried cherry and almonds, I can't wait to try them.
The kitchen smelled incredible: hmmmm almonds, hmmmm. I had to hide a few for tomorrow morning. 
How awesome is that to wake up and have a cup of espresso and biscotti? 
I didn't change anything, I followed the recipe and this is the result.
Next time I will make a double batch.
Here are some photos for you guys.

And now, after I took these photos it's time to eat.
Biscotti time :-)

Spicy chickpea soup - from Una Semplice Passione

Have you ever had chickpea soup? I am crazy about it. I had chickpea soup only in restaurants, I never tried to make it at home.
I found this recipe on one of my favorite blogs Una Semplice Passione. So, I read the recipe and I decided to give it a try. I am sure this will be easy to make and delicious. I can't wait to eat it.

Here is a photo with the soup I made today. I am sooooo happy. It looks soooo good and it taste better than it looks. Can you imagine that? :-)

The only change I made was to add 3 carrots, just for a touch of color and a little lemon juice. I wanted lemon juice because this is how I ate it long time ago in a greek restaurant. This is a delicious soup and I will make it again and again and again. This is a keeper.
