    Katie, do you subscribe to Help a Reporter Out? I’m in no way affiliated with this organization, but I saw today that a reporter was looking to interview food bloggers featuring St. Patrick’s Day desserts with a green theme. Of course, I immediately thought of you!

    The deadline to respond to the inquiry is midnight tonight (crazy short notice, I know!), but if you’re interested, here’s the contact information that was posted:

    Just made the mint Nanaimo bars, so amazing! And I have to say, bless your American heart for featuring a Canadian dessert. 🙂 I searched a few recipes for healthified Nanaimo bars, and I was surprised how few there were. Delicious, my dear, loved by traditional Nanaimo haters and lovers, because it’s not cloyingly sweet but still rich.

    I really couldn’t contain myself after seeing all these mouth water pictures of the desserts. What is more astounding is that all these desserts look immensely rich yet are all under 100 calories. I couldn’t help smack my lips after seeing the chocolate fudge truffle, the gooey brownie and mint chocolate fudge pie. Recipes for any one of them would make my day!
