Parlez Vous Parfait



Last night, for Sugar High Friday, I made this berrylicious Parlez Vous Parfait with blackberries, strawberries, blueberries, plain yogurt, homemade granola, and orange blossom honey. The layers are (from bottom to top): blackberries, yogurt, honey, granola, sliced strawberries, yogurt, honey, granola, blueberries, yogurt, honey, granola, and more honey. After building the parfait, I gave it to my husband. Don't worry - I made a second one for myself. It was cool and refreshing on a hot and steamy Florida night. Perfection.

Homemade Granola
(modified a bit from Martha Stewart's recipe)

4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup wheat germ
5 oz. unsalted sunflower seeds
2 oz. coarsely chopped almonds
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/2 cup honey
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted

1. Heat oven to 300ยบ. Line two baking sheets with parchment; set aside. In a large bowl, toss together oats, wheat germ, sunflower seeds, almonds, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside.

2. In a small bowl, stir together honey and butter; pour over oat mixture. Stir well. Spread onto sheets. Bake until golden, about 25 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Store in airtight container.

That sounds like a great late-night snack or breakfast. Good way to eat those blueberries. The homemade granola sounds delicious.
