This relaxed fit, mildly-cropped camisole has the look, feel and weight of true denim because it is! 100% real denim fiber knit with and airy enough gauge to wear throughout the summer months. If you love the denim on denim look or “Canadian Tuxedo” this one’s for you.
A cheery little cotton square to be worn tucked into a pocket, tied on to a hand bag or twisted and tied around the neck, all lovingly hand-dyed by me using avocado pits and skins (pink) and turmeric root (yellow).
I woke up this morning 1. determined to finish this knitted denim top so I can wear it out tonight and 2. CRAVING granola for some mysterious reason.
I whipped up this quick batch of Easy 5 Ingredient Granola with what I had on hand and it turned out great, so I thought I’d share the recipe. Gluten-free and lower in sugar than most granola, if you think about those things. Substitutions to veganize are in parentheses. Consider this recipe a base and feel free to add nuts or dried fruit.
1/4 C Ghee (or coconut oil)
4 tbsp maple syrup, honey or a combo of both
2 tbsp nut butter, I used peanut
2 C rolled oats
a dash of cinnamon
Preheat oven to 325 and grease a large baking sheet with a small amount of ghee (or coconut oil) or line with parchment paper.
In a small sauce pot combine everything but the rolled oats and cinnamon and stir over low heat until melted.
Add melted ingredients to 2 cups of rolled oats in a medium sized bowl and stir until the oats are coated.
Spoon coated oats onto the baking sheet and spread into a relatively even layer.
sprinkle with cinnamon.
Bake at 325 for 15 minutes, then remove the baking sheet from the oven and carefully stir with a wooden spoon.
Return to the oven and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool. Transfer to a large jar or Tupperware.
