The nearest I get is the Murder She Wrote part and the biscuits. I know it's a bit 1950's housewife but one of my favourite parts of the day is when my other half gets home (I work earlies) and I have something he can eat. We sit and drink tea and talk about our day. Today I've got cashew nut biscotti in the oven. Except I know he won't like them. They're too....nutty. If it's not covered in chocolate, he's not interested.
Cashew Nut Biscotti (Makes about 14)
5oz cashew nuts
1oz chopped hazelnuts
3 egg whites
6oz caster sugar
4oz plain flour
Preheat the oven to 180'c. Spread the nuts on a baking tray and toast in the oven. Set aside and leave to cool. In a bowl whisk up the egg white until they make stiff peaks.... Add the sugar a little bit at a time while continuing to whisk.
Sieve the flour and add one tbsp at a time. Fold it in carefully. Then add the nuts.
Spray a swiss roll tin. Spread the mixture across it.
