People who know me know that I love baking cookies. Dinner parties, birthday parties, weekend getaways - I usually bring my cookies along in some way, shape or form. Sometimes, I even have fantasies of moving to an exotic island where I live among the locals, lay out, and bake cookies for a living - sounds pretty perfect, right?
I thought this was just a sweet little fantasy, until I heard about Eleni. The woman who actually lives out the cookie and island parts of my day dream.
Known for creating "playfully unique" cookies, Eleni spends her days baking-up cookies for the locals (think: Bergdorf Goodman, Henri Bendel, Saks Fifth Avenue, Kate Spade) while enjoying life on an island called Manhattan.
