Peppermint never tastes quite as good as it does in December and it certainly shines in this biscotti. Bits of chopped up candy cane fleck the crisp, chocolaty cookies, giving each bite a delightful pop of peppermint flavor. White chocolate chips and a white chocolate drizzle also add to the decadence of these biscotti, making them especially suitable for gifting Read More »
Whole Wheat Pecan Praline Bars are nutty, chewy, crunchy and chocolaty all in the same bite; a real home run in the flavor and texture department. And these irresistible bars are made with Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour and Hodgson Mill Milled Flax Seed, so indulging in one of these treats is better for you than consuming a typical Christmas cookie.

A huge pot of spaghetti, another of homemade tomato sauce (my uncle always made it from his garden tomatoes), salad galore, and then peppermint ice cream, coffee, cookies, and crispy, creamy cannoli for dessert – yum!
