I never thought that I could become obsessed with granola. Not only am I not a breakfast girl (though I’m slowly turning into one), but I especially don’t understand the obsession with cereal. Now cereal makes a great snack if eaten dry, but the addition of milk that turns it into a soft and soggy mess… no, thank you.

That’s exactly where granola comes into play.

Let’s jump right in, shall we? I have caught the granola-making bug. If you’d asked me a couple of weeks ago, I wouldn’t have considered myself a huge granola fan. I never quite understood the hype and wasn’t even remotely interested. I think the fact that breakfasts used to be more of an afterthought (if even that) to me, might the biggest reason why I just didn’t get granola.

But in my attempts to give the most important meal of the day more attention, I decided to jazz up my Greek yogurt breakfasts with some delicious whole grains. So off I went and purchased a bag of honey almond granola. It didn’t take me very long to consume every last crumb…

And refusing to purchase yet another bag, I decided to make my own. You know, being a food blogger and all. Plus, wanting to be in control of my ingredients and creating granola just the way I like it, gave me more than enough motivation.

Best. Decision. Ever! [Read more…]

French Crullers aka my favorite donuts of all time are back. And this time bursting with fall flavors and dripping with a finger-licking glaze.

It had to be done. Saturday morning was the picture-perfect fall day. The sun was shining in all its brilliance, crisp air smelled wonderful, and I was holding a freshly steeped cup of tea. The only thing missing… a donut, of course. My sweet hubby didn’t have to ask twice to hold one of them in his hands.

Oh, I should probably stop and apologize for already having two recipes with the words pumpkin spice on here. This early in the season. And in a row. Sawy! I seriously wasn’t planning any of this, but it happened, and it was absolutely dreamy. Can’t get enough! A fair warning – we have only just begun, but I’ll make sure to have lots of variety for you guys in the next couple of weeks as well.

Will you indulge me for another couple of minutes though? I promise it’s worth it ;). [Read more…]

Sopapilla Bites

Sopapillas in bite-sized form. You won’t believe how easy and fast it is to make your own in no time!

One of the best Mexican Restaurant treats around. Hands down. I had been intrigued to try my hand at making homemade sopapillas for the longest time. Last Saturday I found myself asking what I was waiting for and decided to dive right in.

Sometimes recipes that aren’t planned and just sort of happen, turn out to be the best. Nothing compares to a pile of freshly fried and golden pieces of beautiful sopapillas, especially when they come in a miniature version, are still warm and doused in honey.

Who is with me?

Sopapilla dough is reminiscent of pizza or even bread dough – a very light and fluffy version. When I first laid eyes on sopapillas, I thought that they looked like donuts and put them into the same category. But they don’t really compare to donuts. They are not as sweet and the texture is completely different. It’s a treat that’s very distinct in taste and something you have to try to fully understand.

One bite and you will know what I’m talking about :). [Read more…]
