Food and cooking
We're having lovely spring weather in New Hampshire this week, and this morning I was reunited with my favorite warm-weather breakfast:
Stonyfield Farm Nonfat French Vanilla Organic Yogurt with a sprinkling of granola and fruit. I really need to start making my own granola, because it's so ridiculously expensive, and really, how hard could it be? Anyone have any favorite recipes?

There are a million good ones via Google, I think your best bet is to combine a few until you find the right combo.
Ruth Yaron in Super Baby Food provides this "starter" idea:
Preheat oven to 350. Spread 5 c. oats in 9x13 pan and heat for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine:
1/3 c veg oil or melted butter
1/2 c honey
1 c. shredded coconut
1/2 c well-chopped nuts (we omit those)
1/2 c. toasted wheat germ
1 tsp cinnamon
Mix into pan with oatmeal and return to oven for 30 minutes, stirring often to brown. After mixture cools, add 1-1/2 c dried fruit and 1/2 c sunflower seeds. Store in fridge in covered container.
This is the recipe my mom uses, it's yummy!
GRANOLA OATMEAL CEREAL
from Calorie King on-line low fat + low carb recipes
Combine 3 cups old-fashioned cooking oats, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 cup sugar or splenda. In separate bowl, mix 1/4 cup canola oil, 2 egg whites. Stir wet into dry. Spread on baking sheet and bake 350 degrees 30 minutes.
Any additional items desired can be added such as raisins, dry cranberries, nuts, etc.
