Fiscotti Journey

Dear Fiscotti Fans!! 

In 2014, I started a home-based business called Rose to the Rescue (working with businesses that needed a rescue with their administrative tasks). 

Since I worked from home, I arranged my schedule to accommodate my clients needs and soon found out I had more time on my hands. Maybe because I wasn't on the road commuting anymore or wasting time in meetings. You don't realize how much time you waste until you have to be accountable for it.

Having this extra time on my hands made it difficult to decide what to do with it. Out of boredom, I decided to bake. Baking was not something I was good at. If my mom was alive, she would tell you that I wasn't a big fan of following recipes.

Speaking of my mom, who I miss dearly. She used to bake Italian biscotti and for some reason, I felt an aching for them. So much so, that I called my aunt and asked for the recipe as I knew she'd have a copy of it. 

My first attempt at baking the biscotti was not great. My rolling pin was covered in gooey dough because I had no idea what I was doing. But, this didn't stand in my way as I don't give up easily. I baked several batches until I got it just right. I shared them with people and knew immediately that I had scored as they raved about them while asking if I had other flavours. They even asked if I was planning on selling them. Well at the time, I didn't even think of another flavour, let alone selling them. 

The neat part is my Rose to the Rescue clients planted the seed and gave me the idea to sell Fiscotti cookies as clients gifts and for this I'm grateful. 

Many people ask why the name "fiscotti" and not "biscotti" - well, it's simple. My last name starts with an F so I thought I would change it up a bit...plus they are softer than a biscotti.

Now...I welcome you, your friends and family to try my Fiscotti cookies too as they come in a variety of flavours and they make for the perfect gift for any reason or season. 

Enjoying life to the last bite!
