I’m a big fan of granola. But I find that many of the store-bought options are lacking in one way or another, such as being bland, containing ingredients I don’t care for, or containing unhealthy preservatives. Luckily, I found a wonderful recipe on the Mother Nature Network website, which after a couple very minor modifications, is now my go-to recipe for Homemade Granola. It’s really easy to make, and provides a great option for a natural, healthy snack.

I’ve mentioned before that my wife and I have become big fans of trying new types of “bruschetta” for our meals. Last night we decided to pair an entrée salad with some Lasagna Bruschetta — a concoction I devised a few months ago to use up some leftover pasta fixings. The thing I absolutely love about Lasagna Bruschetta is that it’s super-flexible. You can use a different types of cheese, fillings, and bread based on what you have on hand and/or your own personal taste. The recipe here uses low-fat cottage cheese and veggies for a healthy, vegetarian-friendly dish.
