corner view ≈ favourite plate

after savouring a few articles on the art of making granola {of which you'll find just one here}, i dared making my own. it took me two bakes only to understand the business of making granola is a serious one. and then the liberty to engineer yourself sweet and savoury! even my son-of-the-non-granola-league approved. hungry for granola now? read this and you'll run for your cupboard oat & co. if we're talking favourite plates however, hands down: mussles and belgian fries. jane's corner view, francesca's hosting.

  1. Hi Nadine,
    I was thinking lately to bake my own granola and decided that I have no glue how to do it properly and decided to leave it behind and after your description I think, that wasn't a bad idea. You might show me how it works when you're here...

    1. Belgian fries = French fries = frites (in french) ! :-D
      I don't know why the term "french fries" exists...because it's typically Belgian... Nadine, do you know why?

    2. i have NO idea at all, i was gonna give that same answer, belgian=french fries. let me just check. okay "french" could be related to the fact they are deep fried and in history that was typically french. in WWI soldiers had them and thought they were in france, and thus exclaimed "french" fries, instead of belgian, the country in which they ended up. let's put it like this : the origin is unclear. the taste however? ah, don't get me started! ☻

  5. hi Nadine,
    looks tasty and healthy!
    I also make my own for a while.
    instead of oil and sugar (or maple) I use a mixture of TAHINI (sesam paste) and DATES MOLASSES (you can find it in the vegetable arabic or turkish shops). this is kind of the Israeli style of granola - worth trying!

  6. Yum! I know what you mean about the serious business though, I did make it once and always said I want to do it again, but haven`t!! I am inspired by yours now, and may just get down to the oats and grits of it again and give it a roll!! Great plate!
    Thanks for all your fun themes:))

  9. I definitely will be trying out these recipes. I eat oatmeal/porridge everyday and this looks like a nice variation!!

    thanks for the theme, I couldn't decide what to share so I did a dessert, but of course I'm a thai food crazy lady. The spicier the better!!
    p.s. when you plan on coming to London let me know. It would be great to meet. sending you warm hugs.

  14. Looks great! I always have the same problem when I make mine - I never end up with some in a jar for later.
