Apricot-Toasted Nut Granola

We know – Granola. It sounds so boring. Like how many granola recipes are out there? Tons is the correct answer and seriously, aren’t they really just about all the same?….We get it, granola is granola. Except when it isn’t. This isn’t the normal granola. The nuts are toasted first, lots of dried apricots, plump big raisons, honey and cardamom.

Rosh Hashanah Honey-Walnut Cookies

Over the centuries it has become associated with many food customs, for instance, eating sweet food to symbolize our hopes for a “Sweet New Year.” Typically honey is involved, as are apples.

Honey Orange Biscotti

I’ve recently started loving tea. I always liked tea before, but for some reason it was always second-best to coffee. No more! When Susie and I were in London last month, I picked up some tea from Fortnum & Mason (visit their website – their store is fantastic!). Anyways, this tea is amazing, so I decided to make something that could be

Flapjacks

  FLAPJACKS. When I say “flapjacks,” I’m guessing you’re thinking about pancakes. I certainly was until I learned of the British variety of flapjacks. These flapjacks are much more like granola bars, except that one of their main features is golden syrup, another item I had never heard of. Golden syrup is not as widely available in the U.S., and around me

Apple Cupcakes with Honey Frosting

Happy October all! We’re officially into Fall! Fall is by far my favorite season. Sure, I’m cold all the time and love summer, but nothing beats New England in the Fall. Fall also means more pumpkins, more leaves, fewer thunderstorms, and more candy! I created this recipe last month, but I think it works really well for all of fall.
