#52tries | Spring Break in Truckee Tahoe + Terri's Birthday Lemon Biscotti

Begin again.

Above are the corresponding pictures for my week's "try" at creating a healthy and happy family table + meal planning. You can read my 52tries diary entry here.

Mealplan + cookbook/website links (it's a short list this week!):

Find The Pollan Family Table's Baked Ziti here.

Find my dear friend Terri's lemon biscotti "al limone e mandorla" recipe here. At her suggestion, I simply dipped it in melted dark chocolate and crushed pistachios = Birthday heaven for Vicki.

US Biscotti conversions:
4 c gluten free or regular flour
1 TB baking powder
1/4 c marsala wine
1 c ground almonds (almond flour or meal)
1 c roughly chopped pistachios (plus more for dipping!)
1/2-3/4 c honey
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

See ya'll back here every Thursday with a week worth of pictures and a link back to my #52tries diary post.

To the mullies we go.



A special shoutout to Chef Marty of Marty's Cafe in Truckee - We can't wait to eat breakfast with you again someday:)
