Three Easy Valentine’s Day Breakfasts

I know some people king of have a thing against Valentine’s Day – that it’s a hallmark holiday. But, I think February would be awfully dreary without it. A day set aside to celebrate love? Why not? Count me in! Besides, I don’t go out and buy stuff for Valentine’s Day, I make it myself…

I’ve gotten into the habit of making a different granola recipe each month, depending on the flavours of the season.

The air is getting cooler. We’re waking up to the furnace coming on in the mornings. The kids are getting snuggled up in their pj’s before bedtime, instead of sleeping in their undies and diapers with the windows wide open. We’re donning sweaters in the cool of the morning and at the setting of the…

This post is part of a July series on sweet cherries. To see the other posts head here. I had this idea bobbing around in my head for quite a while before I actually got down to creating the recipe. Almonds and cherries are always a fantastic pairing and I thought they would be so delicious…
