I love Food. Cooking it. Eating it. Experiencing it. As a result, that's what this blog has evolved into: A journal of my gastronomical journeys abroad, as well as my culinary creativity at home. I hope you enjoy what I have to say, and I'd love to hear your comments... Cheers!

Breaking Baking News!!

MANDEL BREAD (like manna from Heaven)
This just in: handed down from my late, great-grandmother Nanie Sadie (one of the best bakers in the History of Little Jewish Ladies Baking -- I still have dreams about her coconut custard pie) to my grandma Nanie Ceil... and the best thing about this posting is Nanie Ceil e-mailed it to me after reading this blog!!!!! Gotta love this crazy thing called the Internet...
(Editor's note: for those of you not familiar, think a slightly moister version of biscotti)

  1. Mix together 1 stick of softened margarine, 1/4c. vegetable oil, 3 eggs, 3/4c sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 3 cups of regular flour, 2 tsp baking powder, pinch of salt, 1 cup finely ground almonds, 1/2 bag of chocolate bits (Nanie says 'optional.' I say 'mandatory!')
  2. form 3 rolls put on a floured baking sheet and bake at 350 till the rolls are hard enough.
  3. slice when cooled sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon mixed and put back to toast.
