Granola parfait

Breakfast In Bed

For Mother’s Day all I have requested is breakfast in bed. Well, breakfast in bed…and no whining, a chicken coop and maybe some new Louboutins (my guess is that I’ll get one of the four, the one that involves a cup of coffee).

Apple “Cupcake”

This is such a crispy, satisfying and yes, cute snack. It’s often an afternoon treat for me, too. It’s a mock cupcake complete with sprinkles on top.

Valerie’s Granola

Granola is one of those staples that is fundamentally wholesome and delicious, but often becomes a high-calorie, over-sweetened fiasco. It doesn’t have to be that way. This homemade granola is the perfect mixture of sweet and salty combined with a crisp, roasted texture. It’s easy to make and has none of the extra sugar or preservatives you find store-bought.
