Homemade Granola


I don't know why I didn't think of this a long time ago.  Making granola is a HUGE money saver at my house.  We go through the stuff like it's diapers!  I made this yesterday and I happened to have all the ingredients in our storage...what luck!  It is SUPER easy.  Here's the recipe I used.  Let me know if you have a good one.

Did this granola fall apart or cool into clumps? I just purchased some granola at our co-op and it didn't clump very well. Also, do you know why it has to be refriderated? Looks good!

It didn't all clump. You only add 1/2 cup of syrup so I bet if you added a little more it would clump better. I've never made it before so I don't have much experience but I thought it tasted amazing! About the refrigeration...my guess is because of the syrup. I know some recipes call for honey or oil and they probably don't need to be kept cold. Does that sound right??

i use a recipe i found in a paper somewhere long ago (i think city weekly actually). anyway, it's like your recipe in that it doesn't call for oil - just syrup. i don't refrigerate mine - not sure if the original said to or not.
4 cups oats
4 cups other stuff (nuts or fruit - your choice - i usually use craisins and pecans or blueberries and coconut and pecans - and recently i've started doing 5 cups oats and just 3 cups extra stuff because i'm cheap)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp allspice
3/4 c brown sugar (i've reduced this to 1/2 c lately and i think it's great)
mix it all together and then pour 1 c maple syrup over it all and mix it again. i've reduced this to about 3/4 c and it doesn't clump as well, but with 1 c it clumps perfectly (by my standards).
bake on pam coated cookie sheet for 20 minutes at 325.

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)



Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
