Nonna's Biscotti

I know I'm not the only one to say this, but life can get really, really busy sometimes.  Between friends, family, two jobs, the holidays and this lovely Minnesota winter we have been having this year, it can be hard to find a moment to stand still and enjoy and appreciate everything that has happened over the last year.  So, when that one shining Saturday in January appeared with nothing to do, the first thing that came to mind was baking something new and taking the time to relax.

Focaccia Bread with Sauteed Red Onion

I believe one of the most wonderful scents in the world is the smell of fresh bread baking in the oven. It will always feel like home and like any successful cooking experiment, will give me a wondrous sense of accomplishment. I’ll be honest, though, that sense of accomplishment is nothing next to seeing others truly enjoy eating it.
