Easy Granola Recipe

January 22, 2015
Short on time and need an easy granola recipe? This one uses items that are right in your pantry!

I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m not a big fan of avocados. I’ve made it in a cheesecake and can make a mean guacamole for my husband and daughter to ravage, but I just can’t get down with those things. OK, I can handle avocado in my sushi, but thats about it. Two […]

oatmeal banana bites, quick snack for kids, no bake

I’ve made these oatmeal banana bites about a million times since I put it together. There are TONS of similar recipes all over Pinterest, so I just had to make my version of it. This creation really stemmed from us having a really over-ripe banana that no one wanted to touch, but I knew was […]

gluten free granola bars

I’ve been tinkering with making recipes that can be created in a gluten-free way. While we aren’t committing to a full “GF” diet, I’d like to have a few of them in my arsenal, like my Sautéed Peanut Broccoli recipe.

chocolate toffee treat

Montana was one of the first friends I made in middle school. I was the new girl to my private school, and the only black girl at that, but she was completely nice to me right away. Montana was the first friend I’d ever had that was named after a state, and my first pal […]
