It’s almost Halloween, and that means it’s almost time for my family’s annual debate about the merits of candy corn. (For the record, I’m pro, especially if you include those marshmallow pumpkins in the mix.)

This year, I wanted to find a festive dessert without candy corn for the holiday, and I think I’ve got a winner in this Melting Witch Poke Cake. It’s not perfect, but it still will make people happy.

I’ve lived in Stark County for seven years, and I’d never been to Loby’s Bar & Grille until this restaurant review. But I’d heard about Loby’s, and I pictured it as a place that is way more bar than restaurant and always a party.
“We have a ton of regulars,” said Jacob Bruckner, the enthusiastic co-owner of North Canton Nutrition, a smoothie and juice bar that opened in February. “We help gain a healthier lifestyle and achieve fitness goals,” he said.
I love eating oatmeal for breakfast, but I seldom take it to work with me. Whenever I try, the container the oatmeal is in inevitably leaks, or I don’t have time to heat it up before things get busy, and then I spend my morning hungry (and grumpy).
