Cereal with yogurt, honey, dried cranberries, walnuts and cinnamon.

My apologies for not posting last week. I have been rather busy and eating mostly simple quick items like cereal, frozen pizzas and canned soup.  But this morning I decided to put in a little effort with my cereal bowl and created a “sundae cereal”.

  • a bowl of cereal (I used Nature’s Path Organic Kamut Krsip.)
  • two big dollops of plain yogurt (I prefer Balkan style yogurt.)
  • a handful of dried cranberries
  • a handful of walnuts
  • 2 to 3 tbsps honey
  • pinch of cinnamon


1. Mix the walnuts and cranberries with the cereal.

2. Drizzle honey on top.

3. Place yogurt on top.

4. Sprinkle cinnamon.

5. Garnish with a few more cranberries and/or honey.


Waldorf Salad with Cranberries

Lillian's Waldorf salad with cranberries.

A guest post by Lillian who created her own unique version of the classic Waldorf salad.

  •  1/4 red onion — finally chopped and seasoned with coarse sea salt
  • 1 head of romaine lettuce — washed and chopped
  • 2 slices of multigrain bread — toasted and cut in quarters
  • 1 small apple — any kind — cut into small cubes (about 1 cm cubes)
  • 1/3 finely chopped red (or yellow) pepper
  • 1/3 long English cucumber — sliced
  • 1  fresh lemon — squeezed for dressing
  • 1 tablespoon of extra virgin hard pressed olive oil
  • freshly ground black pepper — amount to your liking
  • 2 tablespoons of light Miracle Whip
  • 1 tablespoon of (unsweetened) dried cranberries
  •  2 tablespoons of chopped walnuts

In a large bowl, place salted onions and squeeze mixture with (clean) hands. This will have a marinating effect on the onions and will remove the strong taste from them as well as allow all the flavours of the salad to meld. Add lettuce, apples and cranberries. Then add lemon juice, olive oil, ground black pepper and Miracle Whip.  Toss everything together and then fold in walnuts, red/yellow pepper and cucumber slices. Arrange the toast around the rim of the bowl (see photo). Enjoy!

Note: No extra salt should be required. Can substitute with red/green butter lettuce

Thank you to Lillian for taking the time for sharing her Waldorf salad creation.
