Indian Coffee House…Coffee Mania..

~ Coffee ~ “I’d  rather  take  coffee  than  compliments  just  now.” ― Louisa May Alcott, Little Women Let’s cut the crap and start by me professing my new-found love.

Cooookiee dough!  Who I mean who doesn’t like that?  The yummy tantalizing waft of heavenly mix – eggs, flour and vanilla with I don’t know how it works out itself and produces a super delicious batter.  This week I tried to bake chocolate chip cookies and man to tell the truth, I was more tempted […]
