Chocolate biscotti dotted with sweet/tart dried cranberries. These are wonderful with coffee! In the background are a couple of chocolate cupcakes with Halloween-theme spider-web designs on the frosting.

Muffins to make New England proud, with great, broad, crunchy tops.

The raisin-bran muffin stump, on my desk after an heroic devouring of its top. One more cup of coffee, and this was gone, too.
