"Me and my boyfriend have been together for 11 years now. We live on 40 acres and have 6 dogs and 4 Tennessee Walkers. We both work a lot of hours so there is never enough time in a day to get everything done. I absolutely love the outdoors. I also enjoy lifting weights, reading and playing with all of my beautiful animals. I absolutely love, love and love to cook. I like to cook a variety of things and also like love to bake. I like to just get in the kitchen and experiment with different things. If something does not turn out for me such as pie crust or gravy I will keep trying until I can make it work. Only problem is, when I finally make it work it may not work again the time after that. It is fun though and I do consider myself a pretty good cook for the most part. I also love slow cooker recipes. Those are my most favorite in the winter months."

    I had no oranges, but I have this Meyer lemon tree in my living room, and all the lemons are ripening. So I subbed lemon juice and zest for the orange and used lemon extract instead of vanilla. They came out excellent! Winter is really dragging on here in Chicago and I needed a taste of spring. I love the light summertime flavor of the lemons and cherries in this biscotti and I got to use one of my fresh lemons.

    These were absolutely fantastic. I made them for a tea with my girlfriends, and they ate almost the entire batch. Someone started spreading different jams on them, and we all became hooked. I used craisins instead of cherries and tangerine zest and juice instead of orange. I loved how they were perfectly hard, - not so much that they hurt my mouth to bite them. Wonderful - I look forward to making them again. Thanks for posting, Gingerbear!
