Stewart, that is. I thought I’d start a new blog full of recipes, crafts, and just stuff I’m interested in or have found useful. I’m not the craftiest person. I’m not the best cook. But I do have lots to say and now you all can partake. But let’s face it, I’m no Martha.

One of my sweet blog followers, Sarah, requested a picture of my finished cocoon. So, without further ado, here it is!



Basically I took two granola recipes and combined the two. I took a few things here and there, omitted a few things and VOILA! THE. BEST. GRANOLA. EVER. I didn’t take any pictures, but take my word for it. You’ll be impressed. I promise.

Granola Recipe

· 6 cups oats

· 1 cup cranberries

· 1 cup coconut

· 1-2 cups pecans (chopped)

· 1 tsp salt

· ¼ cup brown sugar

· 1 T. cinnamon

· ¾ cup honey

· ¼ cup maple syrup

· 2 tsp vanilla

· ½ cup vegetable oil

Combine dry ingredients in large bowl. Combine wet ingredients and microwave for 2 minutes bringing to a boil. Stir wet ingredients then add to the large bowl of dry mixture. Mix thoroughly. Spread Granola on 2 cookie sheets. Bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes. Let cool. Store in air tight container.
