Cooking With Substitutions


I used to feel married to recipes.  If I didn’t have the exact ingredients listed I felt as thought I couldn’t proceed.  Even though I watched my parents improvise in the kitchen, somehow I remained a “rule-follower.” Thankfully this has shifted.  There’s a kind of freedom that comes with straying from a recipe.  Not only do I feel comfortable making substitutions but also omitting ingredients altogether.  I still love a well written recipe and often use them as a springboard – but I don’t feel confined by them anymore.

Mixed Grain Muesli

We don’t talk much about breakfast. “What are we having for dinner?” is forever stealing the spotlight. Farmers to You offers numerous scrumptious breakfast foods (don’t get me started on that Salumi Slab Bacon!).  If you don’t have time to stir a pot of oatmeal in the morning try making muesli.  Muesli is the invention of a Swiss doctor looking to fortify his patients.  In its simplest form muesli is a mixture of raw oats and milk.  There are zillions of variations, all good.
