I have completely redeemed myself after that dismal failure of a dinner tonight.
I made granola. I love granola. But it's even better when it's homemade. My favorite homemade granola recipe belongs to Alton Brown. My brother Dale first introduced me to this back in November when my sister and her clan moved up to Washington from Arizona. I was craving granola tonight so I thought I'd give it a go.
I don't have any maple syrup, dark brown sugar or sliced almonds on hand, so I made a couple substitutions. I did about 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon of light brown sugar, added 1 tablespoon molasses to the wet ingredients, used honey instead of maple syrup, and substituted pecans for almonds. The verdict? Yummy! I think I'll have a bowl of it right now.
You're supposed to add raisins at the end, but I think I'm going to leave it be. The only ones in my family who like raisins are Rose and me.
