Cauliflower Apple Soup

I know. . . strange right?  Cauliflower apple soup?  But it was so good!  A must try, and I'm not even a big cauliflower fan.  I received two heads of cauliflower in my Bountiful Basket and didn't know what to do with them.  I honestly do NOT like cauliflower raw, and I've tried the mock mashed potatoes with cauliflower and didn't like those either.  So what's a girl to do?  Well, after scouring the internet for something that sounded good and had cauliflower in the ingredients I finally found a soup that seemed simple enough.  I think this recipe would taste just as good with pears in place of the apples, in fact it might taste really good with pears AND apples!

Almond Cinnamon Biscotti

Every time my mom comes to visit she brings her own morning goodies.  These goodies consist of her own coffee, coffee creamer and biscotti cookies.  On her last visit Asher, my 3 year old, "shared" her biscotti cookies and I was afraid she would run out before her visit was over.  So. . . I figured it was time to make some.  These turned out a lot better than I thought they would.  When I got to the step where you shape them into a log I wasn't exactly sure I was doing it correctly.  Thankfully they turned out!  I love this recipe because you could easily add ingredients or switch others.  Switch the nut, add cranberries, switch from cinnamon to nutmeg or cardamon!  Let me know if you switch it up a bit, I'd love to know how others put their own twist to this recipe.
