Russian Tea Cakes (biscotti di natale)

“Good things come in small packages.”  … as do delicious, tasty little bite sized Russian Tea Cake morsels. Growing up, my sisters and I used to make them with our mom every Christmas, and it became a tradition that I’ve carried on while living overseas the past couple years.

Cobblestone Steps, Italia

In southern Italy, just south of Rome we visited a beautiful ‘city on a hill’ with small maze-like side streets made of gorgeous cobblestone. It was like taking a trip back in time. I just love the look of the old architecture and design. (Unfortunately, the name of the city escapes me, but it was in the region of Latina, about an hour outside of Rome, and it was located on a mountain top).

The Street Performer, Paris

Montmartre is one of my favorite neighborhoods in Paris. I love the quaint little side streets, the cafes and restaurants, and venturing up the hill past the artists’  square and all of the beautiful shops to the to the backside of Sacre Coeur Cathedral … all the while listening to the classic French music playing in the streets … you know, the melodies we’re all so familiar with from the movies.
