i went to a party friday night- and videoblogged a little just before it….i’m so damn boring! so boring that i almost didn’t post…but then i thought- aren’t i supposed to be showing how lame i am?!
in preparation for the party i baked lots of biscotti/cookies…
i love this cantucci recipe from nick malgieri’s cookie book because the only fat in it comes from the almonds and the eggs…there is no oil, no butter, no shortening.
the candied biscotti (however) from biscotti have a stick of butter and more butter for making the candied almonds.
and alexis’ chocolate chip cookies…..well…might as well slap a pound of butter right on your ass if you are eating these…and they really do taste amazing.
here is the cantucci batter:
and then ready for baking:
and then out of the oven:

i did have some wine at the party…and felt crummy all day yesterday. then last night..keithy and stayed up super late watching “jackass 2” omg that movie was completely disturbing!
