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.
