The cookie. Small, delectable, perfect. Not out-of-a-package cookies with unpronounceable ingredients. Warm, homemade cookies. Butter. Brown sugar. Chocolate. I’ve rounded up some of my all-time faves, the ones that you find on my kitchen table most often. Bliss.

The summer before last, a mutual friend brought the lovely Katie Lee Joel and her husband William over for dinner. Much to my delight, she brought a fresh batch of these cookies with her. I adore the contrast of the dark chocolate and the cherries—heaven.
Gwyneth’s neighbor in London, Evi, shares a very old and secret Viennese cookie recipe. We dare you not to eat them all in one day.
It's a back to work/school/life mag.
We are kicking off our makes with easy, healthy and super tasty one bowl lunches, which we loved creating/testing. Great to bring to work.
Also, a piece from writer/humorist/awesome chick Jill Kargman on the Jewish New Year. And some other bits.
