Granola 74

Granola 74!   What is that?

Granola 74, what a name for a cereal or snack. As the current saying  you hear too much, “it is what it is.” Kellogg’s first sold a granola in 1893 and popular in different mixes since then per Wikipedia.   Dr. James Caleb Jackson invented granola in 1863 the Jackson Sanitarium in Dansville, New York. In the 1960’s, fruits and nuts were added to make granola health food during the hippie movement. It appears every decade, the granola gets another update and version.

Always  interested in the best snack and foods for our children, during 70’s and 80’s, I was collecting recipes from anywhere.  Have you ever sat in a doctor’s office looking to see if anyone was watching to tear out a recipe or to write it down and cram into the diaper bag? Granola 74, just means it is a 1974 recipe which I got from some cookbook out of the local library.  I really think I discovered it in the late 60’s at the entrance of 2 children…yeah, the hippie era.

Stir-Fried Frozen Cauliflower

Fresh cauliflower looked so good at the summer’s Farmer’s Market.  I froze several bags to have this winter.  I got ready to cook it and wondered how to besides boiling in water and having a soggy limp vegetable.  I did use some in soup and casseroles.  I wanted the taste of roasted cauliflower.  By thawing it first, microwaving for 1 minute and draining well by putting on towelling paper to absorb more water, the cauliflower was ready for a quick stir-fry.  Seasoned and enhanced with walnut pieces made a quick side dish.
