I am loving that it is finally getting cooler for Fall. If you have been out and about downtown in Cincinnati and in Covington, KY this weekend, you probably have been enjoying the lights and wonder from Blink. Below is a simple recipe to add a little energy into your diet for this jam packed weekend. Enjoy a taste of Fall, while also being energized, enjoy and happy cooking and Blinking art lovers.
Peace + Love,
