Just saw it and I loved every minute of it! I loved everything about it and for 2 hours and 3 minutes I was inspired to honor my love and passion for all things edible. I love food. I can't help it. Some people drink, some people gamble, some shop. Those are not my addictions. Mine is food; reading about it, shopping for it, cooking it, photographing it and most importantly, eating it.
In honor of the opening day of the movie, I decided to make the Cantuuccini
out of Baking with Julia
. They are really a biscotti, but so much more crunchy. A simple enough recipe and it makes enough to give away. I packed up a bag for my friend Halle, whom I was seeing for lunch and I also gave some to our favorite neighbor!
I put a bag of them in Eli's lunch for camp. The first thing he said to me when he got into the car at the end of the camp day was, "Mommy, everyone loved the biscotti's". He is so thoughtful!
p.s. sorry for the photo, when I went to photograph them, they had been pillaged and eaten. All that were left were crumbs!
