Pumpkin Granola

If you live in the north-east, you’re probably well aware of the current weather conditions we’re experiencing thanks to Hurricane Sandy. I’m writing this Sunday night for fear I may not have internet come Monday morning. So, I’m not sure exactly what the weather is like right now, but hopefully I’m not floating away.

Salted Caramel Thumbprint Cookies

There’s a looming holiday that I think we need to discuss. I won’t give it away, but it occurs at the end of every October. So this holiday, which is normally enjoyed by most, is one I do not.
