Good morning, my wonderful friends!
What a day I had yesterday…., but PEANUT BUTTER & PECAN BISCOTTI and Vanilla Latte saved the day in the end……..
……My little Twitch woke up this morning crying in pain from his hip, back & ankle. ….it was so painful that I had to help him to get off the bed & move around…..
…since you never know and when it comes to my children I always play it safe I took him to ER….
….it wasn’t my day….
…..after quite a bit a wait for early morning ER doctor arrived……I told him everything about Twitch’s ongoing issues since he was hit by an SUV back in February….
….he asked me what I want HIM to do…..
…I thought …..maybe just maybe he could start by examining the areas that are painful, but that’s just me and I am NOT a doctor….
Then he looked at me….opened his mouth and this is in a nutshell what came out…….“Don’t bring your child to ER every time he has pain as a result of his accident….each time you come you are wasting $400 of the government money cause we can’t do anything for him….. You would be taking better care of your child if you gave him a painkiller at home…!!!!!”
Yep…..that was the beginning of my day….I was just called a bad mother & government money waster by an arrogant small town doctor because I dared to bring my child in pain into ER…..
It took me few hours to shake that off…..then I decided not to let unprofessional doctor like him to ruin my day and I decided to bake….
Few months ago I saved Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Biscotti recipe I found at Annie’s Eats…..this was the perfect time to try something new….
I did little changes to it….as usual, but the basic stayed the same…..the result was fantastic…..
This recipe makes about 30 BISCOTTI…..
- 3 cups Flour
- 2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 6 Tbsp Butter (unsalted, room temperature)
- 3/4 cup Crunchy Peanut Butter
- 1 cup Sugar
- 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 3 Eggs
- 1 cup Pecans (chopped)
STEP 1: Preheat the oven to 350˚F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
STEP 2: In a bowl whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.
STEP 3: In another bowl combine butter, peanut butter and sugar. Beat on medium-high until fluffy. Add vanilla & beat in eggs one at the time while scraping sides of the bowl.
STEP 4: Add dry ingredients and mix until incorporated on low speed. Fold in pecans.
STEP 5: Divide biscotti dough in half and shape into logs about 11″ x 3″. Place them onto cookie sheet and bake for 30 minutes.
STEP 6: Remove biscotti logs from the oven. Allow them to cool for 10 minutes.
STEP 7: Slice biscotti logs diagonally into 1/2 – 3/4″ thick biscotti slices. place them back onto baking sheet.
STEP 8: Bake biscotti until slightly crips on both sides for 20-30 minutes turning once.
STEP 9: Transfer to cooling rack . Let them cool down and drizzle biscotti with chocolate. You can also dip one side.
….and that is my story How Peanut Butter Pecan Biscotti Saved The Day!

I live in a small town so I am sure our path will cross again…..I can use some advice to be prepared!
