The "s" word's a love/hate relationship right now. I love them, for the most part. It's the waking up at 6 a.m. that I don't love so much. I am not a morning person. Just ask the Man. I'm baking for Near & Natural three days a week. Which is great. And I'm working in the store Mondays and Wednesdays. Come visit when you can. 1 Court Road, Bedford Village, NY. They've got the best coffee, great products and really good food. For N&N I'm using organic sugar, organic butter, organic rBST-free heavy cream, free-range vegetarian-fed hand-massaged hen eggs. Okay, I'm kidding about the hand-massaged part. Well, I don't really know WHAT they do to their chickens - they just might be massaging them, talking to them sweetly, reciting poetry, who knows. But the scones are pdg - pretty darned good.

Here are my crispy chocolate chip cookies - highly addictive. I try to supply them to my friends infrequently - I don't mean to be their enabler, but these cookies are soooo good you see, it's hard to just eat one. These were a staple in the house before the scone blitz. The cookie jar was ever-bountiful. Maybe I'll make them again this week.
