Holiday Inspired Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Today, I’m sharing one of my delicious holiday-inspired recipes with Uru and her readers over at Go Bake Yourself while she takes a much deserved seasonal break. I’ve started the post here to whet your appetite but I hope you’ll hop on over to her site to see the recipe and the surprise at the end.

Hello, my fellow foodies! My name is C.J. and I’m from Food Stories Blog. I am a nurse and a food blogger from southern California. Like most of you, I love food and all things food related … especially a great Food Story ;-)

Unfortunately, I’m also a diabetic so I work very hard to moderate the amount of carbs that I eat while trying to focus on healthy, natural, unprocessed, whole foods. Whole foods & low carb can be a delicate balance but for me, it’s a way of life. Now, in all honesty, around the holidays it becomes much more difficult to eat right and I struggle with it. Working at a hospital makes it quite difficult because of the long hours with no breaks and all the food gifts from the patients and their families. Sometimes, I just throw up my hands and enjoy the seasonal fair. This biscotti certainly feels like a splurge but it can be made fairly balanced if you make it right.

When Uru extended the invitation to blog, I was so excited, practically bouncing off the walls, but I was also worried. Just like my dear hubby, how many people really enjoy eating low carb? Obviously, I’m accustomed to the lifestyle change but many times he just rolls his eyes and wants a “regular” treat so from time to time I do reward him with “regular” treats. For those of you that can hang with me to the end of the post, I promise, you will be rewarded :-)
