Homemade Granola

When my school has inservice days, we do a breakfast potluck. I usually bring fruit, but I knew others would bring fruit, and I wanted to do something different for a change.

I was at the Farmer’s Market the other day pining over all of the beautiful produce, and admiring the increasing variety of other products sold there – lotions, soaps, plants, cheeses, etc. I came up to a stand of baked goods that looked good enough to make your mouth water, and I very nearly bought […]

Balsamic Glazed Carrots

As much as Tim and I love vegetables, there’s one that we really never cook just as a side dish.  Carrots.  We eat them raw and we use them in recipes, but we just don’t really eat cooked carrots.  Until now.  These are so delicious, I’ll definitely be adding them to our rotation.  The carrots […]
