Nine Batches of Biscotti and a Wedding

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!

At the beginning of wedding week, hubby and I celebrated our 39th anniversary at one of the best Italian restaurants in Reno. Yum....more about that in a future "review" post.  No recipes today....still in rest and relaxation mode.  To be continued......
