Rosemary & Thyme shortbreads – step by step recipe

First of all,  let us render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s! I am following with great interest the blog of Savory Simple, and this shortbread recipe was featured on the blog this month.

It felt like the perfect treat for a summer aperitif in the garden … and way  better than any cracker you can buy at the supermarket. So I just HAD to test it and make my own. I adapted it slighlty..but basically my contribution to the recipe is mostly the step by step photo explanation.

Zucchini and Goat Cheese Charlotte – step by step recipe

A few years ago I got obessed with charlottes, after a friend of mine offered me a recipe book on these fabulous delicacies.  Charlottes became my trademark : I was making a savoury or a sweet one each time I had friends over. I even dreamed of creating an online shop where I would sell baked to order charlottes.
