? On busy mornings I usually have yogurt with granola and fresh berries. Homemade granola can be  a healthy and delicious treat. Most of the store- made granola is usually high in sugar and contains unhealthy oils.The advantage of making your own granola is that you know exactly what’s in it and you can add you favourite ingredients. This granola is made with oats, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, flaxseeds and your favourite nuts and fruits. The granola is naturally sweetened with coconut flakes and  honey or maple syrup.  I usually make a large batch granola this to last throughout the week . This recipe yield a large batch of granola ( about 6 cups). Serve with yogurt  or nut milk and fresh fruit or berries. ? ?

I don’t know what’s been up with me lately, but I’ve been baking a lot lately. I’m not usually one for baking, but it’s actually been such a nice thing to do when I have a break from working. And this time, I took a break from baking brownies and decided to make cornbread, a Southern classic. I had been craving it all summer and finally decided to do something about it and make it myself. I have shared my recipe down below. If you guys end up making it, definitely tag me so I can see how yours turned out!!

Roasted Tomato and Garlic Pizza Sauce

Buongiorno a tutti!  I studied Italian in college for one semester because I LOVE Audrey Hepburn and after seeing Roman Holiday, I decided that I MUST visit Italy at some point in my life.  But I think we all wish we were Italians at some point in our lives, don’t we?  I mean, the country is beautiful (at least what I’ve seen in film and pictures), they drink wine daily and eat pasta and stay thin!  Maybe if I was Italian I would know the secret.   Even though I made this recipe up myself after searching Pinterest for something without finding exactly what I wanted, I’d like to believe that an Italian grandmother would be proud.  Tomato season here on The Farm is winding down, but I think you should still have time to get some fresh tomatoes to make and can this deliziosa salsa (delicious sauce). Cut the tops off of the tomatoes and then slice them in half. Cut the end off of the whole garlic…

Churro Cupcakes

Like most people, I am a self-taught baker. I began with baking cupcakes with custom fondant décor and moved up the ladder to doing multi-tiered cakes. It even turned into a small side business with family and friends keeping me busy with orders. Unfortunately, school began taking most of my focus and I had to prioritize. I enjoy finding unique, easy cupcake recipes online and then combining bits, from each, to make one recipe. I love trying new things and doing the most with everything I do. Anyway, enough with the story and let’s fast forward to the present! A few team members, at work, arranged a “Mexican Fiesta” themed potluck for a fellow employee-of-the-month-er. Of course, I put myself down to bring cupcakes! Everyone loves the cupcakes I bring! I dive into Google and Pinterest to find recipes that I would openly accept to make. You know…nothing too hard or time consuming on a work-night. *don’t judge me* I usually stray away from recipes that are from scratch…
