Blackberry-Almond Blondies

I am really sad that Summer is getting closer and closer to coming to a close. These past few months have been the best time of my life. The weather has been bliss; not too hot, and not too chilly. Being surrounded by many friends and family often has left me feeling fulfilled. Sunsets at 9pm. Blooming flowers. Gorgeous green trees. Fig butter. Dog walks. Beautiful fruity, Summer treats.

Summer you are so beautiful. Just like these Berry Nut Blondies. 🙂

Pay for your Starbucks Bill with a Blackberry

Beginning September 2nd, 2010, Blackberry users will have the ability to use the Starbucks Card Mobile App on their particular devies. While this app has been available since September of last year for iPhone and iPod touch users, starting today, Blackberry users will be able to reload their Starbucks payment cards, monitor their rewards cards and pay for their purchases at 16 stores in Seattle and the Silicon Valley region.

It’s notable to understand that the Blackberry version of this application is not a mere port from the iPhone, but an entirely Blackberry-intuitive interface and control scheme built specifically for Blackberry Bold, Curve, Storm and Tour users. To load this app, hit up the Starbucks mobile website. (Thx Mashable)


Craving: Pulled Chicken Sliders with Blackberry Chipotle Sauce

If you’re living in southern California then you know we are currently burning in the abyss of a major heat wave. Which means the best things to enjoy are BBQ days around the pool and cool drinks. That’s probably why this sandwich seems so appealing to me. The mixture of pulled chicken on a fresh biscuit all topped with a creamy chipotle-blackberry sauce just makes my mouth water. (Thx FPD)
