October is in full effect here with falling leaves, overcast skies, and chilly weather countered by many cups of hot tea brewed with my electric teakettle. This atmosphere makes me long to bake bread, but alas, I have no kitchen. Temporarily. But seriously - take a look. I'm going through baking withdrawals already. However, there are a few sweet bites to be made and enjoyed without the virtue of an oven, like these Mascarpone Stuffed figs I've made for Fair Trade Month.
Yes! It's Fair Trade Month, which means I've got a box full of Fair Trade goodies to give away to one lucky reader! If you've been reading this blog for very long, then you know each year I love to promote this worthwhile cause (see previous entries here, here, here and here). In a nutshell, buying Fair Trade means Buying Fair Trade means you’re getting quality products and the people who grow, sew and craft them get a fair deal for their hard work. In fact, your everyday purchases can help farmers and factory workers in 70 countries work in safe conditions, earn extra money to invest in their communities and improve the lives of their families.
Coffee, drinking chocolate, chocolate chips,
chocolate spread... this year's box may be the best yet!
To enter, just leave a comment at the bottom of this blog post with what you'd love to make with these Fair Trade goodies.
