    omgoodness that sounds so good!!! such a creative way to use rosewater. Good on you!

  2. Lisa (bakebikeblog)

    Wat an interesting flavour combination 🙂

    ps. in answer to your question about the pork gf sausages – you can get them direct from Balzanelli in Isa St, Fyshwick (they make them on site), but I have also seen some varities at Mr Chops in Weston, and also some IGAs!

    If you want granola, try the blog Apples Under My Bed ( Hedi is a nutritionist and has done a few blogs on granola from memory.

    That cake sounds truly awesome though!

  4. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    What a pity! At least the photos look good 🙂 And I’m now wondering why my rosemary never gives me flowers. Hmm.

    but what about the rosewater – did you want more of that or was it enough? I personally would stay clear of too much lemon but I actually think that what I would need is some white choc chips in here (although maybe they are too dairy for you) for a bit of added sweetness

    I feel you on the “eh” recipes. At least yours is edible. I fail not one but TWICE yesterday. 🙂

    But, isn’t my little bowl pretty?

    Shame this didn’t rock your boat. Yeah, I’m not usually one for granola or cereal in general for that matter – part from the occasional breakfast trifle in summer. I like my breakfasts hot- hot like fire! LOL

    Rosewater sounds so exotic! I had a cardamom rose cupcake once and I loved it, but my friend thought it tasted like perfume. Actually, looking back on it, it kind of did…

  10. Junia @ Mis Pensamientos

    hahhaha i think most healthy recipes, you have to add in your own salt, sugar, flavorings to fit your taste buds. for example, i can live without salt in my food, but most ppl can’t! 🙂

    For some reason I don’t want lemon in my granola. Is that wrong? I love a bit of pointless rosemary, though! x

  12. Fatbooo

    The name of the granola sounds good! pity it isn’t that great when made up. Hahahah re: “pointless Rosemary”…!

  13. msihua

    Ahh.. bring back the irrelevant lizard I say. That was the best post 🙂 I HUGS YOU and pointless rosemary.. not that pointless because it did make the picture pretty 🙂 AND WE LURVE PRUHTTYYY THANGS!

    Aw, they can’t all be winners, but at least you’re experimenting and trying things. Doesn’t sound like a huge flop either. Trust me, it could be much worse. I made an ice cream so entirely repulsive last week, I haven’t been able to use black pepper since. Yes, pepper… Don’t ask. It was a downright culinary sin.

  15. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    I love rose flavored things. Sorry this recipe didn’t work out how you hoped, it’s certainly interesting though.

  16. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Oh no, what a shame it didn’t rock your boat or even slightly shake it! And would adding peanut butter help? 😉

  17. leaf (the indolent cook)

    Aww, the flavours sound so lovely and promising too. Better luck next time!

  18. Louise

    The mix of flavours does sound wonderful. I’m not sure about the lemon with the rose water though. There’s no oil in the recipe- maybe oil would work better than lemon juice? I love the sound of the rosewater, pistachio combo though. And I love the sound of pointless rosemary.

  19. ck

    It definitely sounds like it has all the requirements for a yummy breakfast, hopefully some tweaking can sort it out. I think I shall have to try it anyway.

    I have to say that your posts are an absolute delight to read. You have a way with words that I really envy. Like Conor at Hold the Beef too, again, I so wish I had her way with words. Keep it up! Now I am back in blog land, I am looking forward to catching up on your posts and keeping up with new ones too.

  20. Maria @ Beautiful Busy Bee

    Looks good to me!!! But yeah I get what you mean about the oats to liquid ratio, I like highly flavored granolas so I’ll be excited for you to post the tweaked version.

  21. Lizzi

    I’m so sad this didn’t work out as well as hoped – because i LOVE it in theory!!

  22. Simply Life

    that’s too bad- it sure looks amazing!

  23. tasteofbeirut

    Wonderful dessert! I love the idea of rosewater!

  24. theresa

    My most recent batch of granola involved orange, and orange blossom water. Now, if I recall correctly, you’re an orange hater, but I think it’s really yummy! I’ll have to try lemon next 🙂

  25. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    Sounds incredible! What a shame about the whole boat sinking thing, in that it did not rock it…makes me crave your tall dark handsome granola – someone hand me some cardamom!!

    I love the idea of rosewater in granola! Might just have to tinker around with that one. Thanks!
