Coconut Almond Granola: Gluten and Dairy Free

I’ve been experimenting with different granola recipes lately. I made the switch from store bought to homemade granola a few years ago and haven’t looked back. Store bought is often too sweet, and made with cheap vegetable oils.

Cherry Chocolate Maple Granola

Admittedly, this recipe for Cherry Chocolate Maple Granola is indulgent. But it’s homemade, delicious, and makes me so happy in the morning eaten with plain whole yogurt and lots of berries, ┬áso I think it’s worth it.

Quinoa Salad with Fried Eggs

August 21, 2012

This was my accidental lunch the other day because all I had in the fridge was some leftover quinoa salad and some fresh eggs from the farmer’s market. I really needed to go get some groceries, but I was too hungry so I made up this dish for Quinoa Salad with Fried Eggs in desperation and it was fantastic!

And beautiful too, don’t you think?
