Best Granola I've made yet!!


This was REALLY good!  And the magical ingredient is shredded coconut!  I always thought coconut was pricey, but I found a bag at Smith's on sale for 79 cents!  It was regularly .99 so no biggie.

Cinnamon Raisin Granola (I changed a couple things)

4 cups old-fashioned oats
1 c shredded coconut
1/4 c packed brown sugar
1/4 c vegetable oil
1/4 c honey
1 t ground cinnamon
1 1/2 vanilla
1 c raisins
chopped almonds to taste
In a large bowl combine coconut and oats
In saucepan bring to boil: honey, brown sugar, oil, & cinnamon
remove from heat and stir in vanilla
pour over oats and stir
spray baking sheet with cooking spray
spread out mixture


Bake at 350 for 15 - 20 min, stirring occasionally
cool and add raisins
store in an air tight container

This batch I made is already gone, there might be a bowl's worth left.  I'm gonna have to fight for it around here!

Mmmmm... I make one that is very similar and eat some every night! I love it and my husband thinks it hurts his teeth- so I get it all to myself! :)

I've tasted this famous granola...and I can vouch for its tastiness. I'm gonna try to make it - and hopefully it will come out just as good.

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!

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner

I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days.


My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But after…
