Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

Biscotti is a twice-baked Italian cookie that is crunchy and perfect for dipping into coffee.
Heat oven to 325°F. Combine flour, baking powder and cinnamon in medium bowl until well mixed; set aside.
Combine brown sugar and butter in large bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add eggs and almond extract; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour mixture and toffee bits. Beat until well mixed.
Place dough onto waxed paper; divide into fourths. With lightly floured hands, shape each into 9x1 1/2-inch log. Place logs, 3 inches apart, onto lightly greased large cookie sheet.
Bake for 15 to 16 minutes or until tops are cracked and golden brown. Remove from oven; reduce oven temperature to 300°F. Cool logs 10 minutes on cookie sheet.
Carefully remove logs to cutting surface. Cut into 1/2-inch diagonal slices with sharp knife. (Discard ends.) Arrange pieces on same cookie sheet, cut-side down. Continue baking for 15 to 20 minutes, turning once, or until cookies are golden brown and crisp on both sides.
Meanwhile, place waxed paper onto flat surface; top with wire cooling racks. Remove biscotti to cooling racks. Cool completely.
Place candy coating in small microwave-safe bowl; microwave on HIGH (100% power), stirring often, for 60 to 90 seconds. Stir until smooth. Drizzle cookies with melted candy coating.

I love biscotti, and these have an amazing flavor. I omitted the toffee and put in 1 cup of toasted hazelnuts, and am ready to drizzle them with chocolate. Yum!

I’m something of a traditionalist. My family tends to gravitate toward the same desserts every year for our holiday celebrations – sugar cookies, something pumpkin, and something with chocolate…but this year, I was feeling like trying something new. Enter Cranberry Pavlova. This recipe is part of our 2014 Holiday Brochure, and I was in love at first bite.
Bring the bold flavors of
ginger and sesame to a

Life gets extra busy this time of year. Like everyone else, my family has the normal action-packed schedule…work, basketball practice, piano lessons, gymnastics, homework…not to mention, fitting in holiday activities like baking cookies, shopping, cutting down the tree… More ...
