My cookbook is cracked with the pages falling out, I love this cookbook so much. And the page that this recipe is on has food stains on it galore. Nigella raves about this granola which she discovered on an U.S. book tour. I have made it and given it out as gifts. True story: I usually give this to teachers as a Whatever-I-Made-A-Huge-Batch-And-This-Is-Healthy gift. My kids’ Kindergarten teacher (extraordinaire) is usually on the list even when we don’t have her, but sometimes we run out. A neighbor gets it instead or I need a hostess gift. So one day she tells me that she is in the teacher’s lounge and recognizes the granola that my middle kid’s 2nd grade teacher was eating and said, “Is a gift from Pragmatic Mom? I love that granola. Can I have a handful?”

GingerbreadHouse has a great post on an iPhone/iPad app featuring my favorite cookbook author, Nigella Lawson. The app, apparently, has great easy recipes with 6 or less steps and lets you find recipes based on what you have on hand. Wow! Perfect after an overly zealous trip to the farmer’s market! Check out the app by clicking here to go to GingerbreadHouse’s great blog or click on image to view it at iTunes. Happy cooking!
