Breakfast: DIY granola


Granola is on just about every breakfast menu yet is so easy to make you never need to buy it again! Foodie Underground has a great recipe, but it can be added to or modified in any way you like, depending on how you fancy your granola. Although the initial outlay will be a little expensive…it will make so much granola it is definitely worth it (plus have less sugar than most of the other ‘healthy’ stuff out there…)

If you make just one thing this week….it should absolutely be this. Enjoy!

3 cups old-fashioned oats
3/4 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/3 cup honey
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon cardamom
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup dried fruit

New Years Eve

pomegranate blood orange

Since New Years Eve is tomorrow, it is a little late to post about what to wear, but the perfect time to post about what to eat and drink! After reading through far too many recipes for ideas (I just wanted something simple to take to a friend’s house), I ended up going with Donna Hay and Two Tarts.

I will be making this delicious pomegranate and blood orange punch as well as an apple and brie tart that is the perfect mix of sweet and savoury – it definitely does not need to be served as a dessert! Other ideas that are quick and easy but look impressive: a chocolate pomegranate tart (I made this for dinner tonight and it was amazing) or this wonderfully coloured guacamole with a twist – perfect with all the mangoes everywhere in Australia right now.

Hope you all have a lovely New Years Eve wherever you are!
