Do you ever get the urge to pick up yourself and sort out everything in your life? Kind of like a life cleaning freak out. I’ve been having exactly such a freak out the last couple of days.

You might remember me telling I had some pretty shitty weeks not to long ago. Well, let’s hurry up and forget those terrible weeks – I am perfectly happy again. In fact I am more happy than I can ever remember being. I am, however, quite sure my cleaning freak out came in the aftermath as a direct reaction to me neglecting everything around me. Some kind of a weird external force or something hit me and I suddenly had to clean out everything. My school notes, my wardrobe, my bathroom, my photo library AND my blog. By now everything is sorted out and it feels so good.

Får du også nogen gange en uforklarlig trang til virkelig at hive op i dig selv og rydde op i alt? Sådan lidt et livs-rengørings-flip. Lige præcis sådan et flip har jeg haft de sidste par dage.

I kan måske huske jeg fortalte, jeg havde nogle lorteuger for lidt siden, men lad os skynde os og glemme det – jeg har det fantastisk dejligt igen. Men jeg er ret så sikker på, at mit rengøringsflip kom som en direkte reaktion på al den forsømmelse af altid omkring mig, jeg lavede. En eller anden dag tog fanden ved mig og jeg havde pludselig brug for at rydde op i ALT. Mine skolepapirer, mit skab, mit badeværelse, mit fotobibliotek OG min blog. Ah, det føles dejligt.

The blog has had a complete spring cleaning. New layout, all the posts are now under the correct categories and I’ve made a list over the posts that need a make over (aka. new photos). Phew, never start a blog at the age of 15! Okay, kidding, but my old posts are beyond terrible.

During this complete cleaning I realised how incredibly many granola recipes I’ve got. I mean, they’ve got their very own section under my recipe index. But the thing is I rarely use those recipes. I just throw whatever I feel like together. And I make granola every week. The lovely thing about granola is that the combination of ingredients is infinite. You just have to know the ratio of things. So here is my basic granola recipe – ready to personalise.

Så der har været hovedrengøring på bloggen. Ny layout, alle posts samlet under korrekte kategorier og jeg har lavet en liste over de posts, der trænger til lidt finpusning (aka nye billeder). Pyha, lav aldrig en blog når du er 15! Ej, men specielt de gamle postst var helt gale på den.

Under denne total rengøring opdagede jeg pludselig hvor utroligt mange granola opskrifter der er, her på bloggen. Jeg mener, de har en helt sektion for sig selv i mit recipe index. Men jeg bruger aldrig de opskrifter. Faktisk smider jeg altid bare noget sammen. Og jeg laver granola en gang om ugen. Det skønne ved granola er nemlig, at sammensætningen af ingredienser er uendelig. Man skal bare vide, hvilke forhold tingene skal blandes i. Så her kommer en grundopskrift på den – efter min mening – bedste hjemmelavede granola.

NOTES ON GRANOLA MAKING

– Make sure the granola is evenly spread out. Otherwise big lumps that require longer baking forms

Never add dried fruit to the oven – it expands and burns

– If some of the granola is about to burn, reduce heat and set the oven door ajar

– Better stir once too much than once too little, granola easily burns

————————————————————————————————————————-

GODT AT VIDE OM HJEMMELAVET GRANOLA

– Sørg for at granolaen er helt jævnt fordelt. Ellers kommer der store klumper, der skal bage for lang tid

– Put aldrig tørret frugt med ind i ovnen – det puffer op og brænder af

– Hvis noget af granolaen er ved at brænde af, skru ned for varmen og sæt ovndøren på klem

– Rør hellere en gang for meget end en gang for lidt, granola brænder meget let på
