Follow me on Instagram at sharpharmade! . Thursday September 29, 2016 is Biscotti Day. Honey Pistachio, Almond and Lemon Dipped in White Chocolate, Dried Cherry and Almond Biscotti are just a few samples of the absolutely rainbow of flavors you can get Biscotti in. This day celebrates these wonderful treats, and reminds you to try a new flavor, or indulge in your favorite. Biscotti are almond biscuits that originate in Prato Italy, they are the result of a process that leaves them delicious and crunchy, twice-baking. They’re traditionally served in Vin Santo, a sweet white dessert wine. Biscotti were the result of a process that was used to help preserve food for a long time. The cooking process starts with a barely wet dough of flour, sugar, eggs, and unskinned/unroasted almonds, without any form of yeast or fat. This dough is baked once in a slab the shape of the biscotti, and then baked again after being sliced into the signature shape. Besides almonds, they can be made with pine nuts, walnuts, dry fruits, or just about any low-moisture ingredient. Basic Biscotti Recipe you can build on: ½ c Canola Oil 1 c sugar 3 ¼ cups flour (all-purpose) 3 eggs 1 T Baking Powder 1 T Anise Extract Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F, and grease a cookie sheet or line it with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, mix the eggs, sugar, oil, and the Anise extract until it’s blended together. Combine the baking powder and the flour and add the egg mixture until you have a heavy dough. Split it in two and make a roll the same length as your cookie sheet, press it down to ½ thickness, and place in the preheated oven. 25-30 minutes later it should turn a nice golden brown, take it out and let it cool. When it’s cold enough to handle cut it into ½ in thick slices and put back on the baking sheet. Then let it cook for an additional 6-10 minutes until lightly toasted. You can build on this recipe by adding lemon juice, orange juice, frosting them, adding nuts or fruit, anything you can think of. ^sPm - #sharpharmade Fr 'Days of the Year'. #fit #linkinbio #lpt #biscotti #wp #fb #tweet #twitter #follow #like #tagsforlike #pop #share #ig #insta #tasty #foodporn . @Instagram @sharpharm

Follow me on Instagram at sharpharmade! . Thursday September 29, 2016 is World Heart Day. “Heart Day is part of an international campaign to spread awareness about heart disease and stroke prevention. This is the perfect day to quit smoking, get exercising and start eating healthy – all in the name of keeping your ticker in good working order, and improving the health and well being of people the world over. The World Heart Federation have found that heart disease and strokes are the world’s leading cause of death, killing 17.1 million people every year – that’s more than victims of cancer, HIV and AIDS and malaria. Overeating, lack of exercise, unhealthy diets and high blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose levels are all factors which can trigger heart disease and threaten our own lives, and those of loved ones. Heart Day was set up to drive home the message that heart problems can be prevented. The aim is to improve health globally by encouraging people to make lifestyle changes and promoting education internationally about ways to be good to your heart. This lesson is becoming increasingly relevant as reports of obesity, poor diet and physical inactivity in children and young people become more and more common. Events take place to promote healthy hearts. Charities and other organizations coordinate walks and runs, health checks, public talks, shows and exhibitions to name a few of the interesting and informative events which mark the day. So on Heart Day, get involved, eat your fruit and veg and get outside; both you and your heart will feel the benefits." ^sPm - #sharpharmade Fr 'Days of the Year'. #fit #linkinbio #lpt #wp #fb #tweet #twitter #follow #like #world #heart #worldheartday #ig #insta #share #pop #health #care #tagsforlike #buffer #ticker #awareness #beat #sound #heartbeat #celebratelife . @Instagram @sharpharmade
