Shortbread with white chocolate pistachios and cranberries

Today is the day all the participants in the 2012 Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap post about their cookies. My recipe, this year, is Shortbread with white chocolate , pistachios and dried cranberries.

Food Gifts Ideas

Nothing says love like a homemade food gift. Here’s some ideas from a scrumptious life.

British Fudgecake

British Fudgcake
