Crunchy Lefty

Hmm don't quite have the same ring as "Cruncy Con." Oh well. Here's a picture of the best batch to come out of my latest experiment--mastering granola. I've talked some about getting conscious about what I put in my body. I love cold cereal, but I frightened to death of what they're putting in the stuff. So, I decided, to start baking my own.

This is an almond and raisin variation off this recipe from Epicurious. One thing I learned, you have to really be on with your fire to make this right. The other two batches were decent, but it was clear that I needed to pay more attention to the temperature. Anyway, this one was the star. This particular recipe has a lot of sugar, so I generally eat a cup of it with a cup of milk, and I'm good until the early afternoon.
