…and is (I swear!) research for a story.  Except for the ginger cookie recipe.

Which reminds me of a few months after I got married, when I inadvertently almost killed my husband with biscotti.  Thanks to all the eggs, raw biscotti dough is as tacky and fun to play with as warm rubber cement.  I like to mix it by hand–literally–before baking it twice and then setting it out to cool overnight for a delightful breakfast.

As I got out of the shower the next morning, I heard a strange ::crunch:: from the kitchen.  A moment later, my husband came into the bathroom.  In one hand, he held a half-eaten biscotti.  In the other, a heat- and tooth-deformed gold band.

To his credit, he kindly inquired if I was missing my wedding ring.
