Summer Berry & Granola Crumble

One of my all-time favorite desserts is cherry pie served with vanilla ice cream.  While I usually do still find time to bake homemade treats at home during my busy summers, baking a pie is quite an undertaking.  Berry crumbles are a simpler and much quicker homemade alternative to pies.  And since I always have granola at my disposal, I figured why not replace plain old boring oats with crunchy granola in a crumble topping.  Do you want to know the best part?  Vanilla ice cream is also the perfect accompaniment to berry crumbles.  I’ve included the recipe I used...

Springing into Market and Event Season

Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending my first Weekend in the Country event as a vendor at the Vintage in the Village event at Crossroads Village in Flint, Michigan while kicking off the spring/summer season of vending events for Happy Girl Granola.  As I was immersed in beautiful vintage furniture and finds, unique handmade goods and fellow gourmet foods, I couldn’t help but also sense the strong camaraderie amongst the predominantly female vendors and event goers in attendance.  In the few short breaks I had from my booth, I was able to catch up with my long time gal pals...

On the Menu at Foster Coffee Co

I am so excited to announce that Happy Girl Granola is now available on the menu at Foster Coffee Co in Owosso, Michigan! Served by the ounce with milk, Happy Girl’s cherry almond granola makes a healthful and hearty breakfast option and a great accompaniment to the highest quality craft coffee served at Foster. From their beginnings as a booth at the Owosso Farmers Market (much like my own), I have watched Foster Coffee Co expand into what is sure to become a fixture of downtown Owosso. I love knowing that through our joint efforts, members of my own community...
