Tonight, I impressed myself. I discovered the secret to keeping pork moist. Coconut oil! I wish I had taken a picture before we cut it up, I had no idea it was going to be so good. The wonderful thing about this recipe, is every ingredient is to taste. So you can season and not worry about it being overbearing.
Cool and enjoy. This recipe is full of flavor and moist. MmmMmmMmm!
My family and I take several "vacations" through out the year. Every one comments how we must be made of money since we travel so much. That is actually not the case. We are your average middle classed family, I just stretch every single penny. When traveling, you have to prioritize.
Things like that are very important. When people say vacation, usually an extravagant 10 day get away is what comes to mind. My family does not vacation like that, so we can afford it more often. Every year for my wedding anniversary we go somewhere. Usually Sedona AZ but it has varied year to year. This year for my birthday we are planning a trip to Flagstaff AZ. Last year we took 3 vacations, and this is how I do it!
Vanilla Macadamia Granola Cookies
Today I had a real urge to bake some cookies. I just received my first Naturebox and I was eager to see how diverse I could make the snacks throughout the month. So this is my recipe and it came out DELICIOUS! Along the way I ran into some problems, I was out of salt and the original recipe I used as a backbone to my alterations required one cup of butter. YOWZA! So I decided to let my inner Pintrest freak shine and use alternatives.
My recipe is as follows;
Bake at 350F for 20 minutes. It seems long to bake, but the outside will be crunchy and the center will be perfect. These seem to cook nice and slow.
Now, if you don't have a Naturebox subscription I would imagine you could make your own granola. I was unable to find a similar recipe online so here is a summary of things that were in the granola.
I cannot guarantee that if you made your own granola mixture it will come out the same, but I'm sure it will taste delicious. I know everyone in my house LOVED them.
So these aren't the best for you, but you could even get away with cutting the amount of sugar in half, or even down to 25% of the original recipe and it would still be good. The granola is naturally very sweet.
Exciting news! Last night I finished my final draft and this morning I sent it out to a few literary agents. Fingers crossed I hear from someone soon!
I just linked my Instagram to my contact page. I hope you all enjoy seeing glimpses of my beautiful life and all of the things I love.
Last night I completed my rough draft of The Moon, The stars & A Perfect Stranger. I am so excited to have hit this milestone so much earlier than expected. Time to start editing!
I wish I didn't have to sleep. I get so lost in writing, but when I can barely keep my eyes open its time to go to sleep. Good night world. I hope tomorrow is a beautiful day.
