What type of cook are you? I’m the type of person in the kitchen, who always wants to make it myself.  Whether it’s dip, bread, salad dressing, cookies, condiments or spice mixes.  I just love being in the kitchen.  Plus, I don’t like to buy packaged foods, with a bunch of extra additives and preservatives.  I just feel better when I eat cleaner.  And take a break from cake.  Luckily I’m not that into sweets so that’s not too hard to manage that most of the time.

And I totally get people who don’t like to, or don’t want to take the time to make everything little thing from scratch.  I don’t think everyone HAS to just because I do.  I’m still going to. And I’m still going to encourage you to do what YOU want to do.

But… If you want to ditch a store bought item, a spice mix is a good one to ditch.  Or if you just want a great spice mix to add to your dinner rotation for grilling season, my Southwest Seasoning Spice Mix is it.  A homemade, do it yourself spice mix won’t have additives and preservatives which is nice.  It can also be salt free. I don’t usually add salt to my mixes. I season as I go when I cook.

This is a quick and easy pantry staple recipe for you and it’s perfect on grilled vegetables (I used a grill pan for this last week), grilled chicken, roasted and cubed sweet potatoes, and my Slowcooker Salsa Chicken recipe coming up this week.

This is just a great seasoning to have on hand all the time.

What’s your favorite homemade or store-bought spice mix? I love homemade Italian spice mix too.

MAPLE CINNAMON SPICED GRANOLA

Maple Cinnamon Spiced Granola

 

Maple Cinnamon Spiced Granola Recipe - PiperCooks – Easy homemade granola with cinnamon, maple syrup and maple extract. Use whichever nuts you prefer. Use your healthy granola in a cute parfait with Greek yogurt and a drizzle of maple syrup.


 

Granola is such a wonderful thing to make at home, for a couple of good reasons.

  1. It’s easy.  Just mix it and bake it.
  2. You can use any flavors you can think of pretty much. (Vanilla, peanut butter, chocolate, cinnamon etc)
  3. It’s easy to make it healthier than store bought versions.  You can use little sweetener, and make that sweetener natural like honey and maple syrup.

The smell of homemade granola as it’s baking is also so nice.  Just watch carefully in the last few minutes so it doesn’t burn.

To make this maple cinnamon granola, just  mix together the dry ingredients and then combine with the melted butter and maple syrup.  Stir and then bake.  Bake for about 30 minutes, stirring once of twice.  I like to bake mine a little bit longer sometimes, just be very careful, like I said, to watch for burning.  Also, use whatever oats you like.  I prefer half large flake oats (in my Oatmeal Raisin Cookies too) because I like their texture.

I like to serve mine for breakfast with Greek Yogurt and a little drizzle of maple syrup.  What’s your favorite granola flavor and how do you like to serve it?

Salted Caramel Sauce

Salted Caramel Sauce

Salted Caramel Sauce Pipercooks.com

This caramel sauce is the one used in my Apple Sheet Cake, as shown in the photo above.  Its great on many different desserts, and especially great on ice cream.  You can decide whether to make it salted or not.  I usually will put 1/2 teaspoon of salt in and then garnish a dessert with Fleur de Sel.  Its your choice though, make it how you want to!

Author:
Ingredients
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Fleur de sel to garnish, or ½ – 1 teaspoon salt stirred in
Instructions
  1. Heat the sugar in a medium pan over medium heat, stirring with a wooden spoon. It will begin to melt, then clump, and then melt again.
  2. Cook until amber in color, making sure not to burn it.
  3. Add the butter, stirring to combine, being careful as it will bubble up and splatter. (The sugar is so hot, it can burn your skin very badly, so be extra careful!)
  4. Do the same with the cream. (If the caramel seems likes it separated at this point, just keep heating and stirring and it will come back together.) Boil for one minute, then remove from heat and add vanilla.
  5. And ½ - 1 teaspoon of salt stirred into the caramel, or use Fleur de Sel as garnish on your dessert for a salted caramel. (Omit salt completely if you prefer)
