As far as I'm concerned, there is no better way to spend a gloomy Monday than at home with the kids. We're baking some holiday gifts to tuck into the freezer today -- and Joe keeps me entertained with his guitar.
Helpful hint: If you've recently hosted a Halloween sleepover for a gang of teenage boys, do check the oven for pizza remnants before preheating. Or you can wait for the smoke detector to give you the heads-up.
If you're looking for a new recipe for the holidays, the Double Chocolate Walnut biscotti from Epicurious is yummy and well worth the effort.
