Hi Gera,

Your cookies dripping in chocolate look fabulous. We're a baking-crazed household, so those would fit right in.

Anyway, I found you on TasteSpotting and am writing to say that if you have any photos that aren’t accepted there, I’d love to publish them. Visit my new site (below), it’s a lot of fun! I hope you will consider it.

Those cookies really look good, especially when you let the chocolate dripping like that. It make it more irresistible.


Ahhh thank you for the award! That's very sweet of you! I'm going to pass it on, of course, because we do know many wonderful and hard working bloggers!
