Navajo Blossoms🌸

Sterling Liberty Dime Blossom Pendant $138.00 each
Turquoise Silver Blossom Pendant $106.00 each 
The Navajo word for the squash blossom bead is "yo ne maze disyagi," which means simply "bead that spreads out" and does not relate at all to squash or pomegranate blossoms. Some say they have more to do with pomegranate-shaped ornaments of the Spanish which were impressed upon the Navajo while others say they were inspired by the local squash blossom which was a very important and widespread crop for the Navajo. Then of course, there is the gemstone, turquoise which does hold a special place to the Navajo. turquoise is simply a bringer of good fortune. The Navajo would store it in baskets or hang it from the ceilings to ward off evil in the home, and they would surround the exteriors of homes or graves with it for the same reason. In its simplest meaning, warriors would carry it to battle for strength and protection, hunters would bring it on excursions to promote luck and safety. Tribespeople would give it as gifts or symbols of kinship.

Recipe: Orange Blossom Honey Granola

Orange Blossom Honey Granola
The perfect quick energy snack!

Granola is such a versatile snack, and so easy to make. So why do we insist on buying it at the grocery store? These thoughts occurred to me this week and I decided that rather than paying for small batch boxes of granola, I’d try making it myself.

The result was way easier and faster than I’d expected. I even had most of the ingredients in my cupboard already! I used Orange Blossom Honey for its light citrusy notes, then I layered in sliced almonds, oats, and coconut. As I mixed together the ingredients, I started thinking of the myriad ways to use my granola: as an on-the-go snack in baggies, over yogurt, as cereal with sliced bananas and milk – the possibilities were endless.

How will you use your granola?

What You’ll Need:

4 cups old fashioned (or rolled) oats

1 cup dried coconut flakes

1 1/2 cups sliced almonds

1/4 cup Orange Blossom honey (Pick Up At Bonnes Amies Kitchen)

1/4 cup coconut oil

1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pinch of salt

What You Do:

Mix together the oats, coconut flakes, and almonds in a large bowl.

Mix together the Orange Blossom honey, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and salt in a separate, smaller bowl.

Combine the two mixtures into the larger bowl and mix thoroughly.

Spread the granola onto a large baking sheet and bake at 300° for about 30 minutes, or until golden in color.

Eat or store for weeks!

The perfect blend of protein and carbohydrates.


Add in dried fruits, different nuts, or try a different honey like Wildflower or Tupelo. The sky is the limit; you’ll never get tired of this granola when there are so many variations!

Add in spices like cinnamon or cardamom for an additional kick.
