Cranberry-Clementine Whole Wheat Quick Bread is a treat to be thankful for! Bite through the crunchy sugar topping into a soft, moist clementine flavored whole wheat loaf bursting with sweet-tart cranberries.
It’s getting cold outside. I come home at night from the dog park and need a steaming cup of something in order to defrost. I seem to have become a major weather wimp over the summer. Today I was bundled up in four layers, including a down coat, and I was still cold even though the temperature was in the thirties. I need to tap into my Siberian ancestry. With my evening coffee or tea, I usually like a crunchy biscotti, but lately I have been craving something soft and chewy. That craving led to the baking of these Peanut Buttery Bars and Cookies.
Halloween night was very quiet in our neighborhood. The doorbell rang with trick-or-treaters exactly once. We have never had a lot of trick-or-treaters and I always have left over candy. Each year I think maybe something will change, so I overbuy treats, worried that I might run out. An overabundance of little chocolate bars was the inspiration for 3-2-1 Candy Bar Cake, a quick and delicious way to put left over candy to use.
