 These are the darkest “blondies” you’re likely to encounter, thanks to tea, brown sugar, and chocolate chips! Thanks to coriander, ginger, and lemon zest, these also have a nice zing amidst all the sweet. Recipe below…

Preheat oven to 350. Grease your 8x8 pan. (I ran out of cooking spray, which is why things are a little craggy.)

Cream together:

¼ cup room-temperature butter
¼ cup olive oil 
½ cup brown sugar
¼ cup white sugar

Beat in:

1 egg
1-1/2 tsp powdered tea mix (not lemon-flavored)
½ tsp vanilla extract
1-½ tsp coriander
¼ tsp ginger
zest of 1 small lemon
1-½ tsp baking soda
pinch salt

Mix in 1 cup flour until thoroughly blended, then ½ cup milk chocolate chips.

Bake about 15 minutes, or until edges pull away from pan.

Feed to someone you love while playing “Love Is Blind” for them.

I'm at the slow part of a holiday afternoon, so let's spend a couple minutes with incredibly cheerful EDM musician Mikey Wax. I know him from a delightful single that we'll get to last, so I didn't know he released a song celebrating marriage equality, "Love Always Wins." SInce it's EDM, you can simultaneously dance and cry happy tears.

The song I know him for is his most recent single, "Helium," which is just ebullient.
When it's late at night, when you're all alone, I'll lift you up, I could be your helium.
