Coconut Almond Joy Biscotti Recipe

Sunday, November 30, 2014
I love coconut almonds and chocolate.

Well here is my Grandmother's biscotti recipe that usually calls for just anisette but these have gone to a gourmet version.

I put those ingredients into her basic recipe and got another fantastic cookie recipe.

What a great combination of flavors, bananas, chocolate and peanut butter. Best banana bread I have ever had.

I think two of the best combinations are coconut and chocolate. These cookies are rich with flavor of both and the bonus is they are rolled in sliced almonds before baking with that toasted coating to finish them off to be the best cookie that bursts with all the perfect flavors that I love.

Hope you like this one. Perfect for a cookie tray! Come check out the recipe below.

London Broil and Meatball Barley Soup Recipe

Saturday, November 8, 2014
One of my favorite soups has always been beef barley.

I don't make it often enough.

This week I had such a craving for beef soup instead of the traditional chicken soup so I went out and got lucky enough to find this London broil on sale and was perfect for my soup.

Not greasy like some of the lower cuts of meat, full of flavor and perfectly tender beef in my soup after simmering.

I grew up using beef soup bones, using beef ribs or shanks most of the time leftover from whatever was in Sunday's sauce that was simmered for macaroni. We would use the bone in the saucepot to make a beef soup.

Sometimes that bone would be used more than once.

Those were the depression days when grandma and mom knew how to stretch a meal.

The beef bone sure would make a rich tasty soup but not much meat in it. This soup is packed with tender London broil a rich broth and tiny meatballs.


Chicken, Chickpeas in Tomato Burgundy Sauce Over Pasta Recipe

A great blend of Italian flavors. Fresh plum tomatoes, garlic, olive oil in a chicken with chickpea sauce over your favorite pasta. Sound good? It's not to be missed. If you love these little Italian chick peas this is a dish worth making right now as you're reading. You won't be sorry. The wine compliments the fresh tomato flavors. Love wine, add more. There is no right or wrong way just your personal taste. Adapt with any kind of pasta you like. We love the shells. The peas seem to fit perfectly inside them. A pearl of treasures. Ditalini will work fine along with bow ties I make what I have. Remember wagon wheel pasta another great choice! Enjoy
