TWD: Nectarine Blueberry Pie

So its hot. Baking is not really the best thing to do right now, but I did it anyways. The pie is in the oven as we speak and I'm outside on the patio while the hubs hoses down the baby moose.

Our puppy loves water like any other dog loves to chase a ball. Its so strange, but who am I to say how he should get his exercise. And on the plus side he stays very clean this way.

So here's a picture of my baking pie and the very wet puppy...waiting for MORE water.

Well here is the result of my efforts. I don't think I baked it long enough because what was once a very thick filling is all runny! Meh... it tasted good anyways and the kid ate two pieces and swears he doesn't like pie.

TWD: Hazelnut Biscotti

Oh Tuesdays how you mock me... I haven't managed to make anything to Tuesdays with Dorie in a long long time....some days I barely know its Tuesday.....you ever notice that when you write Tuesday several times over it starts to look like its miss-spelled?

Anyhoo this week I have a huge wedding I'm prepping for. The cakes themselves arent that large but the couple picked out 3 additional cupcake flavors, 4 brownie flavors and 2 rugelach flavors to feed about 200 guests. Too bad they didn't pick any biscotti then I woulda had this week in the bag!

Oh wait obligatory puppy photos! We had bring your dog to work day... I lost a lot of sleep wondering how looney this big guy would be and to my surprise he was a prince! I think he's a keeper....
