RE: Family edible Christmas tradition
We already put in our order for edible Christmas stuff with my Mother. A batch of Italian hazelnut torte for me and a batch of "Berscrutti" (Biscotti) for The Big Guy. Then Mom says, "I can't find any hazelnuts here." Don't scratch the order Mom, nice try, but it's not gonna work, I can buy them ON LINE. Silence. She says, "Really?" Yep, they're on a FedEx truck right now. Sorry. Turn the oven on and start baking.
