DIY Liquid Hand Soap

DSC02801The other day I happened upon this DIY liquid hand soap recipe. I decided it was worth a try! I followed all the instructions set up on this blog, but used Irish Spring Soap instead. It smells wonderful and works well. This DIY hand soap is also much cheaper than the kind you buy in the store!

Homemade Granola Recipe

I really like oatmeal. My husband puts up with it. So, I decided to make him some homemade granola. Here’s the recipe:

Honey Granola
1 1/2 cup rolled oats; uncooked
1/2 cup steel-cut oats; uncooked
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 cup warmed honey
4 TBS melted butter or 1/4 cup olive oil
*For added flavor, mix in dried fruit/nuts after baking.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Combine oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Warm honey to a syrupy consistency. Warm butter and add to honey. Mix well. Pour combined honey/butter into oats. Stir.

Spread ingredients onto a cookie/baking sheet.

Bake granola for 15-25 minutes, until it is golden. Stir once while mixture is baking.

Add nuts/dried fruit after granola is baked. Get creative! Cool and serve for breakfast!

Makes about 3 cups/24 0z.
