Honey Nutty Salty Granola

I love finding recipes and trying them and then want to make another batch but instead of that recipe I decide that I want to change it up a bit. This recipe is quick and easy and I hope you enjoy and much as I do and my hubby. He wants to eat all my bags so I have to hide a portion from him or I won’t have any to eat myself. 


4.5 cups rolled oats

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup slivered almonds

1/3 cup sunflower seeds

3 tsp chia seeds

3/4 cup honey 

3/4 cup butter


Pre heat over to 325. Add all dry ingredients in bowl and blend, in the mean time add butter and honey in pan and place on top of low-med heat and melt. Once melted pour over dry ingredients and mix well. Once blended place on cookie sheet that has parchment paper on it and spread evenly. 

Because there is a lot of liquid in this batch you can cook two ways. One you can have the granola crunchy or more of a soft texture. That is all up to you. I did soft texture and that baked for a total of 25-30 mins. It’s all up to how you want it. 

Serving = 1/2 cup = 267 Calories per serving.

Sweet and Tangy Chicken with Potato Strings and Mashed Potatoes

As you can tell I have been on a mini vacation from my Blog. I have been doing so many things that my blog has been the last thing on my mind. I have been on a chicken, balsamic and honey kick and would love to share this recipe that I found but as always I add things to make it my own and I don’t want to take someone’s recipe and says it’s mine. So I add and change things to make it mine. 



2 Chicken Breasts ( sliced to make 2 pcs of chicken ) Making 4 pcs just thinner and faster to cook 

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar 

1/2 cup honey 

1/4 to 1/2 cup capers 

6-8 fresh okra 

3-6 fresh garlic 

2-3 stalks of celery

8 ounces of fresh mushrooms 

2 tsp – 3 tsp Oregano  or basil 

2 tsp thyme 

2 tsp paprika 

2 tsp pepper 

Potatoes ( I am cooking for a family of 5 so you know I have to make a lot 



Pre heat oven to 350; in the mean time cut fat off of chicken and slice chicken into 2 pieces creating 4 pcs. In a small bowl put in paprika, oregano, thyme, pepper and mix well and sprinkle on both sides of chicken. Place chicken in a bashing dish covered in foil for less of a mess.  Next combined honey, vinegar, garlic,celery, capers, okra, mushrooms and blend. Once blended pour over chicken and place in the oven for 20 minutes. After 20 pull out flip and place in oven for another 2 minutes. 

In the mean time, peel your potatoes and  grab 2 or 3 potatoes and a Julianne Peeler and peel those potatoes and rinse well and place on a paper towel to remove as mush of the water and once done place in a pan with hot oil and cook until done. Sprinkle with what ever seasoning that you desire. 

Cut the remaining potatoes and place in water and cook until done. 

Once potatoes and chicken are done. Place a scoop of potatoes on your place a piece of chicken and scrap some veggies and sauce and the final touch would be those lovely potato strings that you created and enjoy.  

I will have to say that this is one of my favorite recipes.
