Another Recipe from 101 Breakfast and Brunch Cookbook!!!!!!!

Good morning sweet ladies!!!!!!!!!

It has been busy around here.....I know I keep saying that, but it is! I hope that you all have had a more relaxed one!!!!!! 

The reason I have been busy is because I have been in the kitchen......baking and cooking away using the 101 Breakfast and Brunch Recipes Cookbook!!!!!!!

You are going to like these simple easy recipes. 

Honey Crunch Granola
4 c. long cooking oats, uncooked
1/2 c. unsalted slivered almonds
1/4 c. unsalted sunflower kernels
1/2 c. honey
1/2 c butter
2. t. cinnamon
1/8 t. ground cloves
1 5. vanilla extract
1/8 t. salt

Mix oats, almonds and sunflower kernels in a large bowl; set aside. Combine hone, butter, spices, vanilla and salt in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on hight setting until butter and honey are melted; stir well. Pour honey mixture over oat mixture; toss until well coated. spread on a lightly greased 15" x 10' jelly roll pan. Bake until lightly golden. Allow to cool; store in an airtight container. Makes 8 servings.

Grandma's Warm Breakfast Fruit
3 apples peeled, cored and thickly sliced
1 orange, peeled and sectioned
3/4 c. raisins
12. dried plums, chopped
3 c. plus 3 T. water, divided
1/2 c. sugar
1/2. t. cinnamon
1 T. corstarch
Garnish: granola

Combine fruit and 3 cups water in a sauge pan over medium heat. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in sugar and  cinnamon. In a small bow, mix together cornstarch and remaining water; stir into fruit mixture. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Spoon into bowls; top with granola to serve. Serves 6 to 8.

This would be a sweet gift to make up for that someone! Put the fruit in an old mason jar, scoop the granola in a cellophane bag with a ribbon tied around the top. Line a basket with a pretty cloth napkin. Add plastic spoons, paper plates, napkins,  granola and jar of fruit.........I know you can find someone to give this to for nooooooo reason at all. Just because you care is reason enough...right? It is really very nummy and  a beautiful breakfast for that special person!

Hugs to your day.....I am working on orders.......can't wait to get them finished!
