For some or other reason (not sure why) I have an aversion working with yeast, but I so badly wanted to bake this bread, as it reminds me of the most yummiest bread I bought while still in SA, so I just decided, this is the end of this simple dislike, and that I have to bite the bullet and made it, and it’s the easiest of breads to bake, so I will do this more often!!!

Coconut & Pecan Granola

Coconut & Pecan Granola  

¼ cup butter or margarine
1/3 cup honey
2 cups old fashioned oats
½ cup desiccated coconut chips
½ cup pecans, chopped

Preheat oven to 350°F. Melt butter and honey together for about 30 seconds in the microwave in a large bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients, mix to coat thoroughly, and then turn out onto a lined baking sheet.
Bake for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. It’s ready when it’s browned, but not necessarily crunchy yet. It becomes significantly more crunchy as it cools.
Delicious over milk or plain yogurt. Also great as a crunchy topping for desserts or pancakes. Can be served with chocolate chips if you are feeling particularly indulgent.

Bok Choy

Bok Choy tt

1/2 pack bacon, chopped (removed as much fat as I could), because everything is better with bacon!!
1/2 onion in large, long slices
8 baby bok choy, ends removed and washed well
about 1tbsp apple cider vinegar

I fried the bacon and onions slowly to soften but not brown them too much. Then I added the bok choy, which I left purposely wet from washing (thanks for the good preparation advice, Michele!) so that it would steam. On low heat, I left it to cook under the lid for about 5 minutes. Then I gave it a good toss and added the vinegar. I let it steam another 3 minutes or so, and voila!
