Beauty No. 13

Considering that tomorrow is Thanksgiving I thought it only natural that our little baby animal for this Wednesday should be a little piglet! And if you eat pork on Thanksgiving, you might not want to read this post because you will probably feel some pains of guilt while eating your honey glazed ham!
I hope these little baby piglets make your Wednesday even better! My favorite one is the last one!


Here are some short videos of little piggies to distract you from what you should be doing!

Granola Covered Nuts - My Version

Lately my husband and I have been trying (trying the key word) to eat a little more healthfully. My Kitchen skills are pretty good, however my patient skills when it comes to cooking are small to none. So I like to find recipes that are relatively simple and quick and make them even more simple.

I like crunchy things. I don't know why, I just do. So when I find recipes that include or are about nuts I usually like them. This recipe is great. It is so easy and the end result is  hard to mess up! I like eating my granola covered nuts with plain yogurt and honey for breakfast or a light lunch. Here is the super simple recipe.

What you need:

2 cups of any kind of nuts you like (I find that walnuts and pecans work best because of their texture)

1 cup of granola (I actually put some raisins in mine)

2 tablespoons of brown sugar

2 egg whites

First, put your 1 cup of granola and what ever else you want in a food processor. ( I actually used a hand smoothie maker for mine). Process granola and other ingredients until the become fine but not flour like. Add the brown sugar.

Second, beat the egg whites until they are frothy

Third, fold the nuts into the egg whites. Completely cover the nuts in the egg whites.

Fourth, slowly fold the granola into the nut egg white mixture. Make sure to completely cover the nuts.

Fifth, put granola covered nuts on to baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Make sure to check every 5 mins and to spread the nuts around.

Take out of oven and let cool on cookie sheet for about 10 mins. After that enjoy any way you choose!

Beauty No. 11


Wednesdays are hard to get through sometimes...they are right smack dab in the middle of the week.
Therefore, I have decided to create a 'tiny' installment that might make your Wednesday a little bit brighter! It is called "Little baby (some cute little baby thing goes here) Wednesday."  Every Wednesday I will post some cute pictures of baby animals. I know it sounds silly, but it makes me smile so I am assuming someone out there will get a couple minutes of warm fuzzies out of this, so I think it is worth it! As noted above, I want to start the little baby installment with some cute kittens!

And just to distract you at work or school, here are some super cute videos of little baby kittens!

Let me know what baby animal you would like to see next Wednesday!

Have a wonderul and super cute day!
