When I was a kid, my mother used to make fresh granola—and this was in the ’70s before you could find packaged granola in every supermarket. There was always a fresh batch in a glass jar on the kitchen counter. We now sell My Mom’s Nutty Granola at Hot Bread Kitchen (my mother jokingly likes to call it “Nutty Mom’s Granola.”) It’s not too sweet, the flavor is rich from long-roasting the nuts, and the texture is almost muesli-like. At the bakery we leave out the walnuts, but at home I add them; the choice is yours.

Print Chocolate Syrup for Hot Cocoa or Cold Milk In our house, we usually drink our milk straight up, but I’m not above making things a little special by serving up a warm cup of cocoa or cold glass of chocolate milk, especially on cranky mornings or moody afternoons. This is a a very unfancy, homemade, beautifully glossy chocolate syrup that is a tasty alternative to what you’ll find in the supermarket, products that often have artificial flavors, high fructose corn syrup, and mystery ingredients. This homespun version takes just minutes to prepare and will keep in your fridge for a very long time. When the mood for a glass of cold milk or mug of hot cocoa strikes, add a spoonful of the syrup, stir, and slurp. Ingredients 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup water 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract Instructions Put the cocoa powder, sugar, and water into a medium saucepan set over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring regularly with a whisk, until the mixture melts into a syrup and just begins to bubble around the edges. Remove from heat and whisk in the vanilla. Pour syrup into a glass jar with a lid and store in the refrigerator until ready to use. To make a glass or mug of drinking chocolate, add 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons syrup to 1 cup of warm or cold milk. Stir and serve.

Bittersweet, that’s what it was, sitting with Mr Mom’s Kitchen and my oldest daughter across a desk from the counselor at school. Not the school psychologist, mind you. Or the academic counselor. The college counselor, for my daughter, who is closing in on her junior year of high school.

Mr. Mom’s Kitchen came to the rescue,  asking a question of his own, saving the counselor and me from the awkward silence in the room.

Susan from Texas May 17, 2010 at 7:36 pm I tried the Hot Chicken and Rice salad and it was wonderful!!! The only changes I made was to saute the celery and mushrooms before adding the other ingredients. Even my pickest eater had seconds tonight! Thank you for such easy, family-friendly recipes.

What a beautiful post. I have chills now and was getting teary-eyed myself. Having two little girls who are only 3 right now, I can’t even imagine the day I will have the same meeting with the college counselor, but I am sure I’ll be crying as well! Good luck with the transition and well done to a great mom!
