Healthy Almond Coconut Granola

Healthy Almond Coconut Granola

I’m always making granola of one type or another but never seem to actually post recipes. Maybe because in real life I’m more of a dumper than a measurer, at least when I make granola. This Healthy Almond Coconut Granola, though is just too good to be missed, so I measured! Feel free feel to tinker, though, to suit your tastes.

Home-made Gingerbread Granola with Dried Cherries & Pecans

Gingerbread Granola

Ya might think that I’d have gotten my share of Gingerbread over the Holidays, but it just didn’t work out. I wanted to find the time to make Gingerbread Men. I really did. I was so psyched about them. I even got the cookie cutters out and everything…

Dried Cranberry & Tea Infused Scones

Are you a scone lover? Or have you only had overly dry, crumbly scones, perhaps redeemed only by the amount of icing on top? Not that I have anything against icing…but it should go on a really GOOD scone, right? This scone has no icing, but a sprinkle of sugar over the top gives it a nice sheen and a bit of sweetness.

Harvest Wild Rice Salad with Oranges, apples & pears & a citrus vinaigrette

I recently made the Stuffed Chicken Roast from Better Home & Garden’s December 2015 issue – I couldn’t help but be inspired by their Harvest Wild Rice Salad, served alongside. Gorgeous greens, wild rice and a citrus dressing caught my eye. Toss in a few apples, pears and toasted pecans and sprinkle on a few dried cranberries or cherries and you have a salad!

Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Chicken Roast

Are you like me? When you’re waiting at an office or for an appointment, do you read all the food magazines first? And if there aren’t any, do you read others from the back to front because the recipes are in the back? That’s exactly how I came across this recipe from Better Homes and Gardens* for Stuffed Chicken Roast. I practically drooled over it! I was obsessed – I knew I had to make it!

Sherry Vinaigrette

This is truly one of my favorite Vinaigrettes, and I’m a bit surprised I haven’t posted it yet. There’s almost always a bottle in my fridge! It’s a tart dressing, full of garlic and surprise: a few dried berries, cherries, or cranberries or other fruit of your choice.
