Sorry.

At the moment I feel like a little mouse on the wheel… running but not getting anywhere. Life has been crazy and as much as I have wanted to post all sorts of deliciousness (like this Summer Berry Granola!), time seems to slip through my fingertips.

It’s been two weeks since I last posted (an awesome collection of soups) and in all honest, last week just flew by. Packing, cleaning, sanding, packing, packing, shopping, packing…

If anyone out there is thinking of buying a new house, renovating it (2 days after you get the keys), working full time AND packing up the old house, start creating a sort of “sleep bank account” now.

Oh, and a real money one, too. I thought I knew what I’d be spending. I had a budget, which in true teacher style was written down: i’s dotted, t’s crossed.

Who knew that nails, glue, pipes… blah blah blah could add up to so much! I SO can’t wait for my new kitchen to be finished, YAY!!

This Summer Berry Granola recipe I originally made for Old House to New Home while I was wishing for a little sun on a gloomy winter day. It is sweet, crunchy and tastes like cookies. Cookies for breakfast? Ah, yes please…

Store this granola in an airtight container, but once you try it, you’ll be grabbing handfuls and it’ll be empty before you know it! This makes a delicious breakfast treat and an excellent homemade foodie gift for someone special.
