I look forward to the holiday season — it is a good excuse to indulge a little by baking cookies and other scrumptious desserts. I especially like to try new recipes — last year I stumbled upon Starbuck’s Cranberry Bliss Bars. Here’s my own version of the recipe — using an old-fashioned oatmeal blondie brownie recipe along with dried cranberries, orange zest, white chocolate chips and a cream cheese icing. Yum. This festive dessert is pretty good!
Halloween is coming and this reminds me of the homemade popcorn balls that my sweet next-door-neighbor gave out to trick-or-treat goers. I tried making some of this candy confection myself and its pretty good. October brings Food Day as well as World Food Day. It is kind of a stretch, but I made a connection with popcorn, two farm families and Food Day.
