While some claim that pumpkin season is already here, we’re holding off on celebrating the big orange guy to recognize a small purple friend—the raisin. Today is National Cinnamon Raisin Bread day, and what better time to indulge in a slice of sweet and healthy (raisins are a fruit!) goodness than today! Check out some local places that are rolling out the dough and raisin’ a slice to the small, sun-baked buddy in the form of bread, cookies, rolls, and more.
