In the Spotlight

My very sweet friend, Mary, has a blog as well, and she asked me to be spotlighted on her blog.  I, of course, was delighted and honored!  You should check it out!

We met in college…

were roommates…

and celebrated life’s most exciting times.

She is one of the most beautiful people, inside and out.  I’m thankful to be able to call her a friend!

Hello to any visitors from Mary’s blog!!  I hope you enjoy what you find here.  I’m pretty random and nutty, but Luvy and I have fun with it!  I have a passion for food, so feel free to browse my recipes!

Today, I tried the rotation diet thingy… trying not to eat foods that I ate yesterday is difficult!

Since I didn’t have any grits, I had to eat oats for breakfast.  Well, now I don’t have anything to eat tomorrow for breakfast!!  Stink!  Since I had to throw out my grits that I just bought, Whole Foods said they would replace them!!  This is why I LOVE that place!

Tomorrow, I’m still going to try to avoid wheat and also corn.  I usually have 3 options for breakfast: wheat, grits (corn), or oats.

Anyone have any other suggestions for breakfast???

I want to try buckwheat soon for breakfast, but I made gluten-free cornbread today with buckwheat flour.  Therefore, buckwheat is out for tomorrow.  Does millet make a good breakfast???

Looks like I’ll be eating oats again…  oopsy.

Once I get things in a pattern, it will be a lot easier I’m sure!

I’m not really ready to post the gluten-free cornbread.  I didn’t care for the buckwheat in them.  The buckwheat took over the flavor.  I love the taste of buckwheat, but I want my cornbread to taste like cornbread.  Ya know what I mean???  😉

I know that y’all have just been dying for that granola recipe that I promised last week.  (If you are like me, you probably forgot all about it).  I was munching on it today, and remembered that I forgot to share.  The recipe that is.  Touch my granola and you might lose a finger.  🙂

Crunchy Honey Granola

  • 2 cups of oats
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • 2 Tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 2 Tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 2 Tbsp shredded coconut
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1 Tbsp flax
  • 3 Tbsp honey

Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Mix together wet ingredients in a separate bowl.

Combine and mix well.  Bake on 325° for 20 minutes.  Stir after 10 minutes!!

Hope you all enjoy!!

I’m off to Whole Foods tomorrow to get breakfast foods and a new milk!! I should have stock in that place!
