Weekend Fun!!

So while I have been cleaning the oven has been busy and so haven't the kiddos!!

Emmy had a playdate yesterday with some girls from the neighborhood I set the table up with water colors and mat boards "I love it when simple things can make them happy" and they helped me make this

Granola Receipe:

Old fashion rolled oats or Quick
Rasins or cranberries or other dried fruit
chopped walnuts or any nut
1 Cup of caniola oil
1 Cup of maple syrup


Take a large roasting pan and line it with tinfoil then mix it all together with a spatula or wooden spoon.

Bake @ 325 for 30 minutes stirring every 10 minutes


(The jar I got was from a restraunt, they just recycle their olive jars.
Ask around! )


  1. I do love that jar you put the granola in--restaurants are great for things like that!
    Here's the graham cracker recipe:

  2. Hi--I use the recipe on the liquid certo insert and it has turned out every time. It's very much a science to making jam and took us a few years to get it right. I've found that liquid pectin is much easier to work with than the powder. If you have any other questions shoot me an email-!

  3. Thanks Jess! I think I may email ya . Just out of curiousness where were you link to me?

  4. Yes, frozen grapes. :) Best summer snack ever. Take nice cold grapes, wash, cut into little bunches of five or six, then freeze. I like them best after they've been out for a few minutes and take on a nice slushy quality.
