These past two weeks have come and gone, like a whirlwind. My son, Jeremy, married the "love of his life", Leilani in a gorgeous mountain setting during an early morning ceremony. It was followed by a sumptuous brunch, mimosa's and all. Then that evening the party continued with music and dancing! And yes, we wanted to be a part of it all!
One of my "jobs" as the mother of the groom was to make enough biscotti for about 100+ attendees. So, I set up shop (my kitchen) and proceeded to make 4 batches the first day, 4 batches the next and one more for good measure on the last baking day, totaling between 360-400. I baked chocolate ginger, chocolate chocolate chip espresso, traditional anise, blueberry chocolate chip and lastly, my favorite, white chocolate macadamia biscotti!
