Karen’s Column – 🍁 Maple nut granola recipe

Hello from Shropshire!

I’ve been trying to take a couple of weeks off to coincide with Rob’s leave from work, and we had a lovely 2 nights away at our favourite small hotel on the Welsh coast, where we found summer for the day.

And then last week, we were down near Bath for 2 nights last week to attend Auntie Phyllis’s 90th birthday party, staying in a beautiful converted barn and again found a day of summer.

I’m also working on so new mini courses – so watch this space. Thank to everyone who got back to me with suggestions

All of this explains why my blog posts are little top heavy on the recipes and just a little bit recycled.

Maple Nut Granola Recipe Updated

After a bit of a break, when I was convincing myself that the healthy granola from the supermarket was as good as my own homemade, I made a batch recently and realised it wasn’t!

I’ve updated the recipe a bit based on my latest preferences and healthy eating guidelines >> Maple Nut Granola Recipe

It’s also plum season, and this recipe goes beautifully with some greek yoghurt and my roasted plum recipe ( link to that from the granola recipe page )

Surviving Silly Season

It’s the middle of August, and that means it’s what I’ve always called silly season for B&Bs ( in the northern hemisphere at least)

In my experience, a combination of becoming increasingly tired and frazzled as a B&B owner, because it’s right in the middle of the busiest time of the year, with a different type of guest staying, can lead to an increase in stress and a lowering of tolerance levels.

If this sounds familiar to you right now, check out these blog posts:

Are you letting your chimp run your B&B?  ( always check your room kettles before checking guests in )
