Shortbread-Easy As One, Two, Three

Triple Coconut Ice Cream

Biscotti di Greve

I am of the sort for which breakfast constitutes a cappuccino and something sweet, preferably a cookie. I’ve been known to have a piece of chocolate with that morning coffee if nothing else is available. I really try to have a tin of homemade cookies on the counter at all times and if J. had […]
