a tease

this weekend we had perfect weather!
it was in the low 70's and we grilled out and sipped on mojitos!
it's a teaser of what's to come.  unfortunately, the cold will sweep back in at some point.
but i am waiting it out and looking forward to many nights of this.

i am desperately craving spring.
these chilly days have me longing for picnics, fresh air, long hikes in the woods, bike rides, and most of all fresh and local fruit and veggies.
i cannot wait to hear the crickets sing me to sleep.
ahhhhh hopefully it won't be long!

peanut butter pecan biscotti

these little delights are something you must try!
usually i'm not a big fan of biscotti just because it tends to be a little hard.
but these are just perfect.  the pecans are a perfect compliment to the peanut butter.
recipe adapted from joy the baker.
i was tempted to add chocolate chips.
i was also tempted to dip half of each one in melted chocolate.
i'll save that for next time.
