This was a very busy week, my husband was out of town and our two girls were all for myself. It was the perfect week to make cookies too. I told my neighbor I was going to make cookies for her church but I was not expecting it was going to be the week my husband was not at home. Somehow I managed to make 100 cookies and wrap them all.
These are Italian biscotti. Biscotti in Italian is a term for all types of cookies; the ones in the US which are called biscotti are actually called "tarallucci' in Italy. So if you are taking a trip to Italy any time soon do not ask for biscotti thinking they are the kind in the US, because you will get a plate of cookies instead of the tarallucci you are actually wanting.

Altered bags

My mom came all the way from Italy to visit us and his new granddaughter, we had a lot of fun together and she loved so much my altered "Trader Joe" bags than I had to made a couple for her to take back home. She is going to keep one and fill the other with food and wine and give it as a present. I think I will copy her idea and do the same, it will be a cute Christmas basket.
