For me the holidays are all about family traditions. One of my favourite holiday memories growing up is the warm smell of cookies baking in the oven. Now that I have children and grandchildren of my own, it has become my recipe as well and my daughters are now baking them too, passing the tradition down even further.

My Love Affair With Rosemary Shortbread

My love affair with crispy, buttery, ridiculously-easy-to-make shortbread is fairly recent. It's probably only in the last year that I've discovered how fast these little cookies come together and how fun it is to play around with different flavours. After only 10 minutes of baking I had rosemary shortbread that I could snack on guilt-free (well... considering how many I've eaten I'm not sure that it counts as guilt-free any more).
