Homemade Granola

I am a creature of habit.  Ever since high school I have been known to have a few staple meals that I would always eat.

High school- cereal (capt’ crunch) for breakfast, Pop tart at 10:00am, PB & J with a yogurt at lunch, whatever my parents made for dinner.

College- cereal (frosted shredded wheat), Ham and Cheese for lunch, a few snacks, Ramon noddles for dinner

“Real world” Kristy- eggs with cheese, salad with chicken,  meat-veggie-rice

You get the idea.  I have never been a creative cook.  Heck, I don’t even think I’m a good cook when I follow a recipe.

But it’s always been a goal to BE A COOK. Also, I would really like to try new things. Before I lived in Chicago I had no idea that I like mushrooms on my pizza! 🙂 All those year I missed on!

Going into this I am thankful my husband will eat anything I make… as long as I don’t tell him what’s in it.

This recipe was pretty easy… and the pickiest person I know (my mother) even said she liked it.
