Poinsettia flower. 

poinsettia (/pɔɪnˈsɛtiə/ or /pɔɪnˈsɛtə/)(Euphorbia pulcherrima) is a commercially important plant species of the diverse spurge family (Euphorbiaceae). Indigenous to Central America, it was described as a new species in 1834. It is particularly well known for its red and green foliage and is widely used in Christmas floral displays. It derives its common English name from Joel Roberts Poinsett, the first United States Minister to Mexico, who is credited with introducing the plant to the US in the 1820s.

Honey Blondie : 

  • 1 stick – salted butter
  • 1/4 C honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 T sea salt (for top)
  • 1 C AP flour
  • 1 C dark brown sugar
  • 1 tap vanilla extract
  • 1/2 C chocolate chunks

Preheat oven to 350°F. Use a nonstick baking spray and prepare an 8-inch square baking pan. Line with parchment, leaving an overhang on two sides, spray parchment and pan.
Melt butter in a small saucepan on medium heat, stirring occasionally. Butter will foam and start to become very fragrant. Cook until butter turns a nutty brown color. Remove from heat and pour through a fine-mesh sieve into a large bowl. Add honey to still warm butter and stir. Let cool to room temperature. 
In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
Add brown sugar to bowl with butter and honey, whisk until smooth. Whisk in egg and vanilla.
Add dry ingredients, chocolate chunks, and optional walnuts. Stir until mixture is just incorporated. Do not over-stir.
Pour batter into pan and distribute evenly, smoothing out the top. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Test center with a toothpick, until it comes out clean. 
Place on rack to cool.
