Whole Grain and Nut Pancakes

Whole Grain and Nut Pancakes

As I’ve mentioned before, I love to start my weekend off with pancakes. I do like to mix it up, though, and lately I’ve been all about these whole grain and nut pancakes. These pancakes just happen to be oil-free and don’t use any white flour at all; packed with oats, pecans, and whole wheat...
Hudson Valley Granola

Hudson Valley Granola

The story of this granola goes back many moons to when I lived in the tiny village of Tivoli, New York.

Take a blender, throw in some dates and nuts and flavorings, et voilà, you too can sell food that looks like it’s already passed through your digestive system at an outrageously exorbitant price! There’s a reason everyone’s been imitating them, though:...
