My friend Egan was telling me the other night of her sister Jane's granola company that she started here in Utah! It's called Nova Granola [awesome name huh!] and I just ordered two bags, excited to get the stuff and try it out.


This however, is Jane's side job. Here day job is an elementary school teacher [so lucky!] which makes you want to buy her granola even more huh!? Jane blogs as well over at Nova Granola, and from the pictures on her blog, she seems to be a good cook too! I imagine it probably runs in the whole family. 

Just a few images of things she's whipped up.  I'm so hungry now!


and Jane not only shares recipes on her blog but also writes about food related things.
For example, this book [pictured below] which I had never heard of surprisingly till Jane's blog [I thought I knew all of Mara Kalman's books] is definitely going on my list!



and here is a little video of Mara talking about her experience illustrating Food Rules. :)

Ashley, that is a small world and so many connections! :-[) Do check out Jane's blog!

Jane, I couldn't agree more...Maira is so inspiring. This is super goofy...but her paitings remind me of cream cheese..I just want to scoop them up with my hand...that's the best way I can describe how I feel when looking at her work. Also, I wrote her a letter back in 2004...never heard from her...I felt like such a dork for a good couple of months! :-/

Hey! SIster! I like that gal! Goooooo Nova!

Jane said...

I love that you wrote her a letter. I hope you included the part about cream cheese in the letter! I love that :)

lol I actually didn't. It wasn't till a couple years ago that I came to that conclusion of her work. :)
