Welcome to The Tart Tart, my not-so-tart take on food, writing, and photography. I decided to start up this sucker after repeated nagging from Chris, my fiance, who cannot understand why the sight of a farmer’s market would send me into ecstatic convulsions (okay, total overstatement. I can be quite the histrionic at times).With that said, my interests, though chiefly in food, also span fashion, design, literature, and photography. So don’t mind the seemingly non sequitur odds and ends I toss in posts at times.

There is currently a blizzard coming our way.  Looks like we may be stuck in the house for awhile.  I hope we don’t lose power.  That would not be fun at all.  But something that is fun are these Cinnamon Raisin Rice Krispie Treats.  If you like cinnamon and raisin, then you are going to love these.

I found these Jet-Puffed Cinnamon Bun marshmallows at Target and thought they would be great.  The cinnamon flavor in the marshmallows is very subtle, so I added ground cinnamon also.

You can leave them plain like this or add a glaze like I did. I even added a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar, because I just can’t get enough of cinnamon.

Just look at those beautiful chunks of raisins surrounded by all those cinnamon goodness and krispie crunchiness.

For all of you in the path of Blizzard Charlotte/Storm Nemo, stay cozy and warm in your homes and try to stay off the streets.  Be safe!
