It's time for one of my favorite food blogging events Weekend Cookbook Challenge, which is the brain child of Sara of I Like to Cook's and is hosted this week by Ani at Foodie Chickie. The theme is cornmeal.
Normally I use cornmeal to make my Jalapeno Cornbread Muffins. They're actually in my own cookbook - Every Kitchen Tells Its Stories, Recipes that Warm the Heart. My family loves them so much, I never try any other cornmeal recipe.
So, although Sara told me I could google "cornmeal" and find a recipe on line, I wanted to use a "real" cookbook. I love sitting on the couch, surrounded by them, little bits of napkin stuck in between pages, identifying "potentials". I started going through Joanna's collection and it wasn't until I went through a dozen or so that I found this one for Lemon Biscotti, which is actually made with cornmeal. And even though she has a great many books, I seem to gravitate to this one over and over...Better Food for Pregnancy. Now, don't get nervous...I'm not pregnant and neither are the menfolk. For that matter, neither is Joanna anymore....look how cute 5 month old Boaz is.
Lemony Biscotti . Thanks for the challenge, now my family has a new favorite.
