Pignoli Cantucci (biscotti)

These are sliced and browned cookies that we call biscotti and Italians call cantucci. You can make them in any flavor, with any nuts, or any dried small fruits like dried cherries, or golden raisins. They can also be dipped in melted chocolate

Deep Dark Devils Food Cake

I usually make this cake for teatime as a bundt cake and serve it with a chocolate sauce made of melted bittersweet chocolate and butter. It also makes a great layer cake. One variation is to add chopped prunes to the batter.

Buckwheat Crepes With Pears And Swiss

These are a great breakfast dish, especially in winter when pears are easily availible.The buckwheat is much nuttier than regular crepe batter and the pears seem more special than apples.
