Foodie Fave: Drunken Berry Granola

You know us a little by now and how much we love anything with alcohol in it. Granola is no exception. (Don’t judge, we’re not “technically” drinking before noon…). We came across this amazing granola concoction when Food Fellowship and Wine started following us (huge thank you btw!). Her blend of art and food is really pretty bad ass, so naturally, we wanted to share her talents with you!

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup coarse Brown Breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup sunflower Seeds
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup crushed bran flakes
  • Dash of cinnamon (according to taste)
  • 1 bottle of honey
  • 2 tbsp of sugar
  • 1.5 cups frozen berries (any type)
  • A dash or three of whiskey
  • Thick Greek yogurt

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees. Mix the oats, seeds, coconut, crumbs, bran and cinnamon in a bowl. Add honey and sugar and mix well. Spread evenly in a baking tray and bake for about 20 minutes, checking in every five minutes to make sure it doesn’t burn. When it’s a warm brown color, it’s ready. When the granola is in the oven, put the frozen berries in a warm pan with a dash or two of whiskey. Cook for about 5-10 minutes until warm and gooey (almost jamlike). Put the warm granola in a bowl (work quick, if it gets hard it’s a nightmare to get out of the tray) and put the drunken berries on top. Serve with a thick Greek yogurt. Be sure to put any leftover granola in an airtight container in the fridge and eat within a week.

The Lazy Man’s Tuna Noodle Casserole

This casserole is one of my favorite go-to recipes on a work night. It takes just a few minutes of prep time, and by the time I change in to sweats, pop open a bottle of red wine and turn on the TV it’s just about done.

Main ingredients

  • 1 can of tuna
  • 1 small can of cream of mushroom soup
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 tbsp of chopped dried onion
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 bag of extra wide noodles

Topping

  • 1 cup Italian bread crumbs (depending on the size of the dish you’re putting it it, you can always use more. I usually eyeball it)
  • 1/4 cup melted butter

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and cook noodles per the package. Mix tuna, mushroom soup, cheese, butter, onion and noodles together. Pour the mixture into a casserole dish and slowly add milk.

For the toppings, brown your bread crumbs with the butter in a small pan on medium heat. (Be careful not to burn them! They don’t take long to brown.). Sprinkle the breadcrumbs over the tuna mix and bake for 45 minutes.
