Bohemia, NY / http://www.myprgenie.com/ / via ACCESSWIRE / March 31, 2014 / Flavor Your Life, a European Union funded campaign that is dedicated to providing the latest in olive oil news, shares a recipe for slightly sweet Savory Olive Oil and Herb Biscotti prepared with organic olive oil, which makes a perfect pair with wine and fine cheeses.

Ingredients needed for this recipe include:
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup fine cornmeal
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup chopped, toasted walnuts nuts (or hazel nuts)
2 tsp. fresh, coarsely ground black pepper
2 tsp. fresh rosemary, finely chopped
1/2 tsp. fresh thyme
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup organic olive oil

First, preheat the oven to 350degF. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, a non-stick baking mat, or spray lightly with non-stick cooking spray. In a large bowl, sift together flour, corn meal, and baking powder. Stir in Parmesan, walnuts, pepper, rosemary, thyme, and garlic powder, mixing until well blended.  In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar, and oil until well combined. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients to form the dough. Place onto a lightly floured surface and shape into two 11-inch x 1-1/2-inch logs. Transfer logs to prepared baking sheet. Gently press to slightly flatten the top surface of each log. Then bake the logs for 20-25 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool on a baking sheet for 13-15 minutes.

Reduce oven temperature to 300degF. Carefully transfer logs to a cutting board. Using a serrated knife, slice each log crosswise on a slight diagonal into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Place the slices, cut-side down, in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, then remove from the oven, carefully flip over each slice, and continue to bake 10-12 minutes or until cut surfaces of biscotti begin to turn golden brown. Cool on a baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer biscotti to a wire rack and cool completely.

    (KCEN) – While the homeless veteran count is dropping nationwide, Killeen and Temple are seeing a spike in the number of homeless veterans – and it's not just individual veterans. “We're seeing more homeless families, and we've seen an increase in that over the last few months because of the downsizing of the military,” Paula Wood said. “It's very sad to look a family in the eye and say do you have a friend or family member you can stay with because it's going to take a month to get you re-ho...More >>

    (NBC) -- A federal judge Friday threw out new Texas abortion restrictions that would have effectively closed more than a dozen clinics in the state. U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel sided with clinics that sued over one of the most disputed measures of a sweeping anti-abortion bill signed by Republican Gov. Rick Perry in 2013. The ruling stops new restrictions that would have left just seven abortion facilities open in Texas by Sept. 1; there are currently 19 providers in Texas, according to th...More >>
