This recipe really, truly, involves dumping a bunch of pedestrian ingredients into a blender, pouring the mixture into a soufflé dish, baking for 45 minutes, then serving a perfectly-risen soufflé to a chorus of oohs and ahhs


My Homemade Granola

It is the cat’s meow, the bee’s knees, and da-bom-dot-com, all tossed together and served with a spoon. I’ve heard tell that certain people…OK, one person…has eaten it for breakfast and lunch every day for the past week and still hasn’t gotten tired of it.
