OMG! If you like to make Homemade Pasta Sauce this recipe is for you!
By roasting the vegetables in the oven is actually carmelizing them, and the result is an intense, sweet flavor that enhances almost anything.
Serve it with your favorite pasta and some fresh grated parmesan cheese.

Having a coffee and a cookie in the afternoon may make you sharper. The combination of caffeine and sugar improves cognitive performance, attention and memory;

Farmer's Market Recipe

Pick up a pint of your favorite plump berry or a basket of perfectly ripened peaches at your local farmers market. Top them with Marigold's HEARTLAND HONEY GRANOLA and you have a fresh fruit crisp dessert in no time. General rule of thumb is 3 parts fruit to one part topping.

Quick Peach Crisp

4 medium fresh peaches, peeled and sliced

1 teaspoon nutmeg

2 tablespoon soft butter

4 tablespoon brown sugar


Preheat oven 375 degrees

Place peaches in a 8" or 9" pie pan-Combine butter, sugar, and nutmeg and mix together then mix it with the granola. Mound the topping on top of the peaches. Bake in the oven 15-20 minutes-till the top is golden brown. Serve warm with ice cream. 4-6 servings.

Start the day off with HEARTLAND HONEY GRANOLA

Heartland Honey Granola is Marigold's secret recipe that is blended by hand in our kitchen. Eat it by the spoonful, handful, or bowlful, this is a blend of oats and nuts that is satisfying all day long.

Stir it into yogurt or oatmeal, sprinkle it on ice cream, mix it with fruit.

Granola Pie Crust

1 cup Marigold's Heartland Honey Granola

2 tablespoons brown sugar

2 tablespoons cold butter

Combine in a food processor until mixture comes together. Press the mixture into the bottom and sides of a 8" or 9" pie pan. bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes and fill with your favorite pie filling. I recommend Key Lime, Fresh Strawberry, or Peanut Butter pie fillings.
