If you never tried a linseed cookie before, you are here for a treat. Linseed or flaxseed cookies are something I never tasted before.

Homemade Raffaello Coconut Almond Confections

Raffaello Coconut Almond Confections are a popular item in Europe. You can find them in stores around United States also, but they are not as popular as overseas.

Apple Pie Bars- Romanian Slab Pie

October is here and apples are in season and a little bit cheaper, which means that it is time to bake an apple pie, Romanian style. I have to confess that writing this recipe, as easy as it looks like, it kind of kicked my butt.
