I love to listen to people’s dreams. Not the unconscious adventures but the powerful passion that gets us each out of bed in the morning. No matter how small, it is amazing how a spark in someone’s heart can actually make them glow.
One of my dreams has always been to be the kind of host who has a pantry packed with satisfying snacks and a pot of steeping tea when a friend stops by with a penchant to chat.
When I opened my B&B (totally a made up MoFo institution), I decided that having a routine you could all look forward while away from home could provide a sense of comfort. Marry these two ideas and you get – Cookie Tuesday!
That’s right my guests, Tuesday is all about the beloved biscuit. Each week I come up with a different flavour concoction to share with you. I pack up a tiny takeout container that you can pick up from the front desk before you set off for your day on the town.
This week we’re serving Chocolate Almond Cherry Cookies, featuring some fantastic ingredients I brought home from a visit to Australia. There I toured the amazing Loving Earth factory. The staff stole my heart and the ingredients secured my devotion. I hope you love the rich texture of these cookies – that chocolate coconut butter really is something special.
I hope these little treats will fuel your day of dreaming.
p.s. I’m enjoying my last day in Paris. I promise to raise a glass to all of you. Cheers. xo
