BBQ Baked Potatoes and Biscotti.

I love bbq potatoes! I haven't found a bottled bbq sauce that I like. I've had many sweet kinds I like in restaurants, but nothing in stores has struck my fancy (yet).

I really like the bbq sauce that you make in my favorite recipe for bbq pizza.


1 cup ketchup
¼ cup dark brown sugar
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 heaping Tbsp brown spicy mustard
3 Tbsp soy sauce
7-8 shakes of Tabasco sauce

The flavors are very separate until the pizza is baked, but I'm sure they would marry in your fridge after a few days if you mixed some and never heated it. I needed the bbq immediately for my potato, so I cooked it some on the stove top. I threw some of the sauce in a food processor with some rotisserie chicken and had it on a potato. yum.

After dinner I decided I wasn't ready to start grading exams yet and I needed to get to work on using the oranges I have left (about a dozen). So I made orange almond biscotti!

yum! Recipe. I dipped mine in chocolate. They are delicious dunked in coffee or milk.
