Saint Patrick's Golden Cookies by Jesse Bluma

Saint Patrick's Golden Cookies 

These cookie sandwiches are married together with dollops of high quality chocolate and brushed with golden pearl dust. Enjoy the cookies that are classically European, shaped like diamonds and fans. 

Who was Patrick?

We do not know a lot about Patrick.  History does tell us he was born into a wealthy family in Roman Britain.  He was kidnapped in his teens and taken to Ireland to work as a slave.  He escaped; however, later returned to Ireland with a calling.  He spread Christianity with the aid of shamrocks to explain the Trinity.  

Looking for that special treat for your young ones to find at the end of a rainbow?  Trace and cut out thirty small shoe prints, tape them on the floor, walls, and ceiling leading to these golden cookies.  You, your kids, party guests, co-workers, or students will enjoy.

Pointe Viven: Cranberry Salsa and Chicken

Liberate your taste buds from the plain, the lackluster, and regrettable.  Simply print and keep in your recipe binder.  Eat and enjoy.

Cranberry Salsa
by Jesse Bluma

1 pound cranberries, fresh or frozen (thawed)
1/2 cup honey
2 teaspoons grated orange zest 
2 organic Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced the same size
3 organic crabapples, peeled and diced the same size
3 organic oranges, peeled, seeded, and diced the same size
3 serrano chiles, stemmed and diced (include the seeds) the same size
1 bunch cilantro, chopped the same size
1 bunch green onions, chopped the same size

Makes about 3 cups (if processed, more by hand)

Chopping Methods:  This recipe is easy with a processor.  You may finely chop the cranberries in a food processor or more labor intensive by hand. Combine the other ingredients and mix. Set the ingredients aside and leave at room temperature 1 hour, then place in the refrigerator to chill until serving time. The salsa will store fresh and tasty in the refrigerator for up to three days.  The salsa is delicious on its own, paired with chicken, or in tacos.
