About a billion calories. For anyone outside Canada Nanaimo bars (shown below) are one of the very best tasting squares you could ever hope for, created right here in the city of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island but famous across the country. If you want to try them here is the recipe from allrecipes.com. I have never made them so it is nice to have a kit to do so.

Mom and I are planning a jam session (as in blackberry jam, not the musical kind lol) this Sunday to finally turn most of the frozen blackberries filling my freezer into jam. Which reminds me, she has blackberry brandy brewing, might be time to break one of those open. Next week - baking! I will save some of this for the New Year however as had already planned to make sugar cookies and candied popcorn and one can only take so many sweets in the house. Are you baking/cooking/creating any special treats this season?
