The Cookie Situation Just Got Better!

Ok...Den took care of the absence of cookies by buying almost homemade ones from a great little artisanal food store near us! Plus I bought salted caramels from Whole Foods...dark for Den and milk for me...and we are set...pizzelles and apricot, raspberry and nut melt in your mouth cookies...there is a name for them...Kiffles? I put the butter away for the very last time!

I just saw blurb about cookies on our local news channel...apparently there is a shop in Philadelphia that sells only cookies...people were in line at midnight to get them! That's what I am doing next year...or even better I will send!

I am calling on my Italian roots and my mom and my grandmother and making homemade manicotti tomorrow...the kind that you have to make crepes recipe is sort of from my sister and sort of from Epicurious.

Our holiday card this year!

We fought the crowds at Whole Foods and we are set for the next few days...

Happy Wednesday/Christmas Eve!


  1. Merry Christmas to you, Den, and the girls!

  2. Enjoy! That manicotti looks awesome...and so do the cookies.

  3. Love your Christmas card and the photos! How pretty. Glad you got your cookie mojo going and I like the looks of your crepe-like manicotti, yum!!

    1. They were a bit complicated but fun! And awfully yummy! Thank you so much!

  4. Merry Christmas and wishes for a joyous new year Patty!
