When in doubt. . . Homemade Granola!

Just one of those days when you dont want to put too much thought into your breakfast. Or maybe you’re having one of those mornings where you slept in late. You wake up. And you want breakfast a.s.a.p.!! Now that last one sounds like me. No shame(emoji with the cool shades)

One of my favorite things is granola. it goes with mostly everything. Plus it makes for a killer snack. But I get turned off my either how much comes in a bag. small quantity, in a big bag. Or the price.

Wouldn’t it be easier to make granola at home?? YES!!! It’s way easier than some of you might think. A few ingredients and you have your very own granola. And that’s why I say, “when in doubt, Homemade Granola!!!

Ginger Tea Latte

Move over Cinnamon. Turmeric is the new Anti- Inflammatory queen. It has been used in India for thousands of years as a spice and medicinal herb. It’s also a strong antioxidant. Add this on everything. I like to give my food some color at times by sprinkling some on my veggies or smoothies. Taste is slightly bitter and earthy. Just a little pinch and you’re set.

My sister shared this recipe with me. The only thing I decided to add was froth milk. I love latte’s because of the creamy texture. I find a froth want to be more convenient for me because it gives me more control over how frothy I make the milk. I found my froth one at IKEA. IT was cheap but it does the job


Fresh Ginger

Turmeric powder

ground black pepper

Sweetener (honey, or sugar)

Milk(hot boiled)



Mac & Cheese Jack O’ Lantern

In my late twenties I don’t really look forward to Halloween as much as I did when I was a teenager or in elementary. My mom would make all my costumes from scratch. So that was the huge thing i’d look forward to. I still remember my first Elementary School Costume. And also my favorite of all times. Little Red Riding Hood. This was back in 1995, Kindergarten year.

Now I look forward to what my sister and brother are going to dress their kids. It brings the Halloween Spirit back into my life. This year I plan to dress up and join them on their Trick or Treat Rendezvous. Since i’m all about food. I decided to make something Halloween Themed this year. I didn’t want to make anything confusing or with items that are hard to find. This is a simple and no hassle recipe.

All you need is small pumpkins and a box of mac and cheese. I prefer anything organic and gluten free. Annie’s Macaroni and cheese pasta is my go to box.


Set your oven to 375 and bake the pumkins for 15 minutes or until they soften so it’s easy to cut out the faces.

cook your mac and cheese

Add the mac and cheese into the pumkin and bake again for 10 minutes
