Few things in life are more satisfying than home-cooked meals. If you’re lucky enough to have access to decent groceries during the pandemic, or any time really, then taking the time to prepare food at home is rewarding on so many levels:
In this case the recipe is so simple and takes so little time, and yet is so delicious that my wife and kids ask me repeatedly to make it whenever we run out. It feels good to give my wife a reprieve from food preparation and to have food that I prepare be so sought-after. Whatever may come tomorrow, be a deadly infection or just another day, at least I have control over one thing: making today the best it can be.
That starts with this amazing granola :)
Let’s be frank: my skill in the kitchen is limited to finding great recipes, following them, and reaping the benefits. Credit for this recipe goes to cookieandkate.com.
That link provides details and alternates that I won’t describe here. This is just my version (did I mention it’s really really good?)
The thing about this granola is the light crispy texture. The pecans turn into light, fluffy flavour explosions and the almonds are just toasted enough to give some crunch with none of the almond-toughness.
Store in an airtight container. Apparently it’s good for 1-2 weeks but we’ve never had it last that long LOL!
