Um, Happy Halloween? We wouldn’t know anyone about it in these parts – all festivities, trick-or-treating, etc. has been postponed due to the dangerous conditions left as a result of Hurricane Sandy. Power outages and floods are the norm, wires and trees are down everywhere, and the worst part – many people have lost their homes and other prized possessions – some, even their lives 🙁
I baked a batch of these delicious things in anticipation of the hurricane. Needless to say, they’ve made things a bit brighter around here.
Continued thoughts and prayers to everyone dealing with the awful after-effects of this storm.
