Somewhere in the middle of grading, when the papers are like the flights currently stuck in Europe because of the Iceland volcano--no end in sight and no relief--my mind always turns to baking to ease the pain.
This episode's relief recipe is homemade biscotti. I've posted the recipe and the origin over on my recipe blog, Elizabeth Cooks. They're not a difficult cookie to make and the texture is so different than store-bought biscotti, that I'll probably be ruined for an easy Costco purchase forever.
Research papers come in next Wednesday. Stay tuned for that baking frenzy.
