Gluten - Free Granola

I generally really dislike cereal, granola and museli, and have been avoid eating them most of my life. So I decided to make one that I would actually enjoy eating. The main criteria was no oats and no raisins, I really can't stand them, when I was given them as a child I would gag, so eventually my mom stopped feeding them to me. The granola turned out great, I actually really enjoy eating it! I have been using So Delicious coconut milk instead of milk which is really tasty alternative to milk.

Baked Potato Wedges

These wedges are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside with a fragrant rosemary flavor. I made these wedges for the first time on Monday and have had 3 requests to make them for lunch so far this week. So the 3rd time I was asked to make the wedges, I just gave the bf the recipe and he made them himself. With a few changes of course! He added chilies - big surprise! - and cumin seeds. The wedges turned out really, well, spicy!

Szechwan Chili Chicken

I bought a huge bag of dried Szechwan chilies from the market a few months ago; in honor of Chinese New Year I made a Szechwan chicken dish. I tried a dish like this in a Szechwan restaurant in Hong Kong. The dish from the restaurant had deep fried battered chicken, so I have made a similar but healthier dish. The dried chilies add a smoky, spicy flavor to the chicken.
