This is not your typical granola. There are no oats to be found which means it’s not only gluten-free its grain-free as well. But what it does have is chocolate, and let me tell you, that is always a good way to start the day.
For those following a grain-free or gluten-free diet, breakfast can be the hardest meal to adjust to. Most of us have spent our lives eating cereal, oatmeal, toast and pancakes in the morning, but my breakfasts lately consist of smoothies, leftover frittata, coconut flour crepes or this granola with homemade yogurt.
It’s no surprise to regular readers that I tend to like meals made with as little fuss and pretense as possible. That’s especially true come spring as the best meals of the season require minimal fussing to begin with because the produce is so fresh and tender during this time. The sunny skies, mild days and light rains truly work their magic, producing a bounty of beautiful fruits and vegetables.
I have a fun giveaway for photography lovers today: your favorite Canon and Nikon lenses in mug form!
You may have already come across one of these mugs and not even realized it they look so much like the real thing, that is until you see someone sipping their coffee from one.
I like the concept of omelettes; it’s feel-good, casual food, the sort that makes you want to roll up your sleeves, get comfortable and dive in.
They remind me of lazy weekends and leisurely brunches. There’s something wonderfully comforting and satisfying about a dish that’s equally tasty when made simply with eggs, or spilling over with cheese and other fillings.

As some of you may have noticed, things look a little different around here. I thought it was time Gourmande in the Kitchen had a bit of a facelift.
I’ve been itching to make a change for some time but could never settle on a look until recently when I redesigned my portfolio. I knew then that I wanted to create a cohesive look for both the blog and the website so I gravitated towards a simpler color scheme with a clean design. I hope you find it welcoming and that you’ll linger a while and take a look around.
Simple black notebooks with signature rounded corners and an elastic band to keep their contents nicely secured; Moleskine journals have been a trusted companion to creative minds for years. These legendary notebooks have a long tradition in the artistic community; recording details, storing ideas and capturing feelings.
Today the Moleskine brand has expanded beyond those simple notebooks and offers a wide range of journals, diaries, planners, address books and specialized notebooks.
Ever since I discovered Moleskine journals I’ve been using them to keep track of my ideas, write down my thoughts and generally help me remember what I’ve done and what I have yet to do. I keep a journal in the kitchen to jot down recipes and notes for the blog. I keep one in my bag at all times and use the weekly planner to organize day-to-day activities.
