Got a lot of blackberries? Then check out this recipe for Blackberry Mojito Fruit Leather.

I'm not a huge fan of fruit leathers, but this turned out super good! And, really, you can't go wrong with blackberries, mint and rum.

Super Short Saturday Question

If you could be granted one wish, of any kind, what would it be?

It can be on a personal or global scale.

I wish we all lived in a world where I never had to think about me, my family, or anyone else had to worry about clean water, good food, or getting blown up. Oh, and not think about it because it isn't an issue, not because I put my fingers in my ears and sang, "La, La, La, La".

I wish we could have our cake and eat it too. I wish that no matter what we did, it never had an impact on the environment, that we we could have convenience and clean air, clean water, and plenty of green spaces.

I wish humans were no longer greedy.

I know it sounds very Miss America-ish, but World Peace. Do you know how many problems would be solved if countries could just get along together? No power struggles? No ethnic cleansing? Neighbors working with neighbors?

It boggles the mind.

Gasp . . . it is so hot here today that I almost spent my wish on cooler weather.

Wonderful question, unfortunately today I can only think of silly answers.

I wish that all human beings felt compassion first, and most strongly. We have the power and resources to care for one another and the planet, but it seems that so many lack the proper impetus to do so.

To my own ears, even, it sounds trite, but yeah, gotta go with world peace. Or how about this - the will of all the people in the world to work for world peace. That'd be a pretty cool start. I have to agree with Sandy about how many other problems would be solved if war no longer existed. First of all, think how much money down through human history has been wasted on war. And then think if all that money had been spent on peace - education, health care, etc. It boggles my freakin' trite mind.

A cruelty-free world.

I wish that people would wake up to the reality of peak oil and start making the necessary changes now before it is too late.

My wish would be that people would love each other. Think of how many problems could be solved if we all just put aside our differences and loved each other. If we all loved, there would be no crime, no war, no more hurt feelings. It would just be better that way.

Excellent question!

Totally personal wish right now: that my dog was not dying from a really aggressive cancer. It will be some time before I can think on a global scale again. :(

feeling selfish today - I wish I could have a day to spend with my mother. She dies when I was 22, and I'd love to be able to talk to her, and for my kids to meet their grandma.

On a selfish level, I want my Roxie dog back... she passed away the day before Thanksgiving last year. I feel for you, chile. Thinking of Roxie still makes me cry.

On a less selfish level, I wish for a less car-centric society. There are places in Europe where the bicycles outnumber the cars, and places where cars are only permitted on the outskirts of cities - pedestrians and bicycles are free (and safe) to roam at will, pollution and gas consumption are much lower, and public spaces and human interaction are increased.

That some family members weren't struggling so badly.

My wish would be for my Grandma to be alive. She lived the life that I want to live and struggle every day to achieve.
