Q: Tirami Su, the Italian dessert and one of my faves, is Italian for....
A:...."pick me up" Gee, that wouldn't have anything to do with the fact that the recipe calls for about 40 shots of espresso, would it?
Just a couple days off, this past Mon & Tues, and I got so much done around the house. Along with spending time with Kim & the kids, I was able to take care of some chores that I'd been putting off for a while. Cleaned the home office, fixed a toilet that would take forever to shut off, brought in the patio furniture, cleaned and put away some of our summer gear, and replaced a bum hard drive in our TiVO. You know. Real important stuff. And finally took down our Halloween lights to make room for our Christmas lights which will go up this weekend. I know it's early, but this will be the only chance I'll have to put them up. I won't turn 'em on until after Thanksgiving, though.
Biscotti is an Oakland clothing design company that specializes in girls clothing. Bernadette Reiss, Biscotti's owner and design director, was watching TV on election night with her husband Bob, and noticed the dress that ten-year-old Maila Obama was wearing during her dad's victory speech. "Isn't that our dress?" Reiss asked Bob. It was, indeed, a dress designed at Biscotti, and sold at Nordstrom in Chicago for about a hundred dollars. As you might guess the phone at Biscotti is ringing off the hook. Reiss said that she'd like to design more clothes for the little Obamas. I'll be she would!
