I am picky about my granola. It has to be sweet, but not too sweet; it has to have a nuttiness to it that will pair well with any manner of fresh or dried fruits; it has to stand up well to milk but also play nicely with yogurt; and it has to have just the right amount of salt to balance all the flavors out.
As promised last week, I will share with you one of my happiest food discoveries of 2013: Homemade Toaster Tarts. Now… you can call them toaster pastries, toaster tarts, toaster pops – whatever you like. The bottom line is: They are SO MUCH better when they are homemade! And surprisingly simple to accomplish.
The Green Cleaning Team: Baking Soda & Vinegar!
One of the first “greening” projects I took on was household cleaners. All 3 of us have asthma in this household, and I had long-noticed how the conventional cleaners would set mine off like crazy (especially when cleaning smaller rooms, like the bathroom).
I also didn’t like the thought that I was cooking and preparing food on countertops using chemicals we could not safely ingest. And… the big capper for me was the thought of my little girl taking her bath in heavily chemical-laced water.
