Granola, Berry & Yogurt Parfait Recipe Recipe

With the long weekend and an extra week off of school, the big girls have been staing up late and lazing it up in bed until 11am-ish the last few days. I decided they weren’t spoiled enough, so I brought them breakfast in bed. Baby Aria and I prepared the parfaits mixing fresh berries, kiwi, granola and honey-flavored yogurt. Simple, sweet, healthy and filling.

If you feel the urge to make freshly baked granola at home, my friend Sarah at Nuts About Granola offers a "bake-it-yourself" granola kit (it costs only $3.99). It has been widely available in supermarkets on the East Coast and is also available online. I’m a huge fan of their product, and you'll actually find my recipe on the back of the box! Give it a try and you’ll be as Nuts about Granola as I am.

Mulberry Juice Recipe

Mulberry Juice

08.23.10 by Jackie

Lulu's dad is absolutely crazy about mulberries. They are probably his favorite fruit. Yesterday, he asked me if we could make mulberry juice instead of mulberry jam this year, and I was happy to oblige. I picked a handful of the blackest, ripest mulberries I could find on the tree. If you’ve never had a mulberry before, they have a wonderfully complex sweet / tart flavor with hints of pepper when fully ripe. The flavor is almost indescribable. When they get really ripe, the juice thickens to a syrup-like consistency. It’s so thick and intense tasting that I had to dilute it with water to make juice.

A dozen or so mulberries makes about a cup of juice, which is an excellent yield. Daddy is going to be enjoying his freshly squeezed pomegranate juice soon, but for now I’ll be treating him to a daily cup of mulberry juice.

Cherry and Berry Yogurt Granola Parfait Recipe

Granola parfait has the perfect components to start the day: the crunch of the granola, the creaminess of the yogurt and the sweetness of the fruits. Most important, this will keep you full until lunch time.

I've been married for almost five years, and I think that cooking is the best way to say 'I love you'. It might sound sappy but I love seeing my hubby's smile in the morning when I bring him breakfast in bed. Make this for someone special in your life, and I guarantee they will appreciate it.
