Finally blogging again. It’s been quite a summer and fall with “the move.”   Lately we’ve been working on finishing up Sunlight in My Soul,  Abraham, Standing in Moonlight, Raging Winds, Walking Over the Water, Autumn Wind and  Dear John. There’s a new live video of Abraham, recorded last week in our home recording studio. You can view Abraham on our youTube channel.   We’ve been asked about Greg’s free “Peace on Earth” holiday card. If you’re looking for it, you’ll find it online, with instructions for printing, in our dancing light café.

Today, we’re taking some time to do a little holiday baking.  This year we created a special “Holiday Biscotti” for our family, friends and fans. We love the crunchy sweet Italian cookies, especially with coffee.

While reading a French cookbook, we learned the phrase “mise en place.”  It a fancy French term that basically means, “get all your ingredients out, prepared, measured and ready to go before you start  cooking.”   Greg says it means,  “Are the mice in place?”  We’re finding that cooking from a recipe goes much more smoothly if everything’s ready to go.

We hope you enjoy the Holiday Biscotti.  Happy Holidays!
