TWD DC breakfast biscotti

I made a huge batch of granola last weekend. I have been making my own yogurt so I wanted something to put on top. Subconsciously I must have realized that I had two baking projects coming up that use granola. I was worried that these were going to fall apart due to the amount of fruit in my granola. But they held up very well! Biscotti is an unsung hero. It always turns out well and disappears quickly. This version is easy and delicious and would be simple to riff on.

TWD BCM honey-yogurt mousse

I used my own homemade Greek yogurt for this. I was skeptical about how much I would like the finished product the whole time I was making it. In the end, meh. It would probably be a really fun way to showcase a special honey. I used freeze dried raspberries as a topping. I think a tart topping really evened it out. Probably wouldn't make it again, but it would be easy.

CTBF MPK fresh herb omelet

I don't usually cook eggs in heat this high, but it definitely made the omelet process faster. Forgot to put salt in, but still turned out well.

TWD DC Christmas Spice Cookies

I did not expect to be addicted to these cookies. I had doubts that the simplicity would wow me. The dough was a little soft and hard to work with (except I was rolling it out too thin, so then it was fine). But man, I couldn't stay away from these. They would be a great addition to a holiday cookie tin.

TWD BCM Chocolate Truffles

Truffles are one of those things that I have always wanted to make, knew that they were easy to make, and then just never got around to making them. What a great excuse! These turned out well. I was surprised at how soft/melty the chocolate still was after refrigeration. I think I may prefer a firmer bite. But trust me, these are not going to last long.

TWD DC Pfefferneusse

These were really easy to make. I am loving my cookie scoops. Added bonus that my dog took an entire stick of butter off the counter and I caught him, freeze-frame-style, with it hanging out of his mouth. The glaze took a splash of cream to get to the right consistency. Perfect little holiday cookies.

CTBF MPK Grated Carrot Salad

At first I was like, meh ok carrot salad, whatever. But then I couldn't stop eating it. Happy to find a recipe that will use up leftover carrots!
