Chocolate Biscotti

When it comes to chocolate, the darker the better in my opinion. I have used 80% cocoa solids for my chocolate biscotti. These make them slightly bitter, which I love.

My first smartphone was worlds away from what is currently the norm. But, at the time it was ahead of its game. I moved from the Omnia to BlackBerry, before migrating to iPhones. However, my UK phone was an old Sony Dave was no longer using. And I found it so frustrating. In fact, it is the reason I chose to go with an Apple product rather than Android when BlackBerry stopped being supported by App updates. Yesterday our unskilled labourer asked me for help with his Samsung phone. WhatsApp needed updating but no matter how often I clicked the update button, it did not work. There was an indication that the update downloaded, but that was it. Eventually I uninstalled the App and decided to start from scratch. When I looked for Google Play, the App was not there.

Whom ever had set up his phone for him had disabled the App. Probably because they used their login. I attempted to use mine, but could not associate his device with my Google account. So then I create his own Google account, enabled Google Play and downloaded WhatsApp. At the same time, I updated his software while the phone was connected to the work WiFi. I found the entire process tedious, and not as simple as my iPhone. And once again I was reminded why I do not like Android phones. But I know people who have them who say the same about Apple phones. Are you an android or iPhone user?

  1. Oh, you will believe the chocolate part of the response -eat a fair amount of 70% dark chocolate but hardly ever use it in cooking. The bikkies do look moreish tho’ ! You may not believe I have a 7-year-old Samsung android tucked away in a drawer for ’emergencies . . . I also have two big beautiful landline phones – one in the library, one next to my bed – no charging, no misplacing, no fiddly small letters and I LOVE the archaic comfortable situation !!!

  2. Haha exactly! I’m an android user. Always been. And when some time ago I got apple as my work cell (no choices – that was our work policy to use only apple), I did hate it. I had been using it for nearly two years – luckily extremely rarely – and I never could get accustomed to its “bizzare” (to me) interface and functionality.
    And the biscottis look delicious!

  3. years ago i had a Nokia and changed to apple. Hubby has a samsung which i hate using (I never do if i can help it). I hate Apple too but i find it a bit easier than android phones. They all suck really. I like to use 70% chocolate in my cooking; love the bitterness.

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
