Ready for fun, friends, and creative action in Spring 2012!
After introductions and paperwork, we watched other youth's work for inspiration. Check out: YMS Spring '11 Behind the Scenes!

Ellie's Delicious Snack: yogurt and granola:
Granola Recipe: inspired on Ellie's friend Phyllis Capparelly “Yummy Granola” 4 cups oats 3/4 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 cup shredded coconut, 1/2 cup sliced almonds 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, 1/4 cup cajus 1/4 cup vegetable oil 1/4 cup maple syrup 2 teaspoons vanilla 1 cup dried fruit (raisins, blueberries, cranberries, etc) In a large bowl combine the oats, salt, cinnamon, nuts, and coconut. In another bowl, combine the oil, maple syrup and vanilla. Mix well. Pour the liquids into the oats and toss well. Spread the granola out on a parchment lined baking sheet. (I used my baking mat). Bake the granola in a preheated 300 degrees oven for about 55 minutes. Every 10 minutes or so, give it a stir.
You want the granola to dry out and the nuts to toast goldenbrown. Remove from the oven back to the bowl and add the dried fruit and stir it in. Let the gran
ola cool and keep in an airtight container.
