Have you tried farro before? I just had some of the best farro I’ve ever had in Park City a couple weekends ago from the amazing Deer Valley Resort chefs. It was cheesy and fabulous. I made my own version for you today, it is down right irresistible.
I highly recommend this 10 minute Farro from Trader Joe’s–it literally cooks up in 10 minutes. Quick and easy! Farro is one of those ancient grains. The …

I am such a blondie fan. These dense brownie-like bars of goodness have melted white chocolate and chunks of gingersnap cookies throughout. Talk about a dream.
To make matters even sweeter, I’ve drizzled melted white chocolate over top. Nothing like making dessert dramatic.
Here’s your ingredient line-up minus Grandma’s Molasses–she was late to the party. I used coconut oil but you can substitute vegetable, canola or even extra virgin olive oil if you’d like.

I’m such a sucker for a decadent pancakes. Iced pancakes?! Talk about a treat. Please note, pure maple syrup is great too
I used a family favorite dessert, “blueberry crumble” as the inspiration for my pancakes today. I thought, why not make them into pancakes? I added my favorite vanilla granola to the pancake batter which gives that great “crumble” texture throughout. Bursts of blueberries with each bite make these pancakes a real treat.
Hope you enjoy!
