    Debbie, I am so sorry to hear that you are feeling down. That’s hard. Big congrats on a decade of blogging. What an amazing achievement!

    Oh Debbie, I hope things are turning around. I’m glad you’re taking the chance to see your therapist, even if that’s the last thing you want to do. (My husband has depression, and I had post partum depression with our first child…and didn’t listen to him when he told me, again and again. It’s not fun, not great to talk about, not what you want to work on. So great job doing it anyway!). And I’m glad baking helps. If I’m not in the kitchen often enough, my mood (and my family’s) suffers. I’m glad you have an outlet, and that it helps.

    Also, I’m glad you shared the recipe. 🙂

    Prayers things turn around soon, and stay that wys for a good long while again.

    Claudia

    Congratulations on a decade of blogging! I loved this post and completely related. I made a chocolate raspberry version, and it helped get me out of my new nightly seasonal depression funk: http://asoundthatquakes.tumblr.com/post/101945471466/witching-hour-dark-chocolate-raspberry-blondies

    I hope you are finding some solace in therapy. And in response to something different you posted elsewhere, I just want to say you are deserving and you are good enough to feel great and achieve wonderful things. I know it takes a while to get that through our heads sometimes. It’s something I often struggle with, too, and something I just wrote about on my site.

    That aside, I was looking at this and have been thinking of something similar, but a more pronounced fall palate with pumpkin and crystallized ginger. And then I saw Claire’s post and it looks like something I made and blogged about a couple months ago–a blondie with raspberries, dark chocolate and leftover granola. Great minds think alike. Stay tuned! Who knows where this will lead us all…. Fresh cranberries rock.

    […] by Debbie Koenig’s Cranberry Snack cake, which is something of a riff on blondies, I set to work on something with pumpkin and cranberries. […]
