Every so often, I like something a little sweet for breakfast — like carrot cake. But we can’t bite into a big hunk of sugar every morning, so I transformed that cake favorite into a (much healthier) granola version.

Peanut butter and cocoa granola

Peanut butter and cocoa? Those are some year-round flavors, and this has become my year-round granola choice. The add-ins depend on the season: dried golden raisins or dried cranberries in the fall and winter, then switch to fresh berries for spring and summer.

We quietly closed voting on our first reader survey on Wednesday about noon, but most of the votes were cast long before then. Thank you for opening up to us! With the help of some pie charts, we’ll take this post to look back at your answers and give our reactions.

Thanks again for your input and time!

How many times per week do you cook?

“Never” was an option, but no one selected it. And we guess that makes sense. If you care enough to take a survey on a cooking blog, you likely care at least a little about cooking. We were happy to see that about 45% of you cook at least 5 times a week.

How many recipes have you tried from the blog?

While we’d like to think all of our readers have tried at least 1 recipe from our blog at some point, we know that’s not realistic. But to whomever responded that they’ve tried more than 10 of our recipes, that made our day! Which recipes have you guys tried?

How many times per week do you eat a meatless dinner?

What does “meatless” mean? We define it as any meal that includes no meat or fish. It can include eggs or dairy products, though. These answers were about on par with what we expected to see.

How many people do you usually cook for?

Apparently we cater to a lot of people like ourselves! Caitlin usually cooks for just herself, and Sarah usually cooks for two. The option of “More than 4” was on the survey, but no one selected it.

Where do you buy produce, dairy and meats?

“A natural foods store” was also among the choices for this question, but no one selected it.

Do you have any dietary restrictions?

We expected to see more people who have dietary restrictions to respond — especially those of the vegan and vegetarian persuasion.

How likely are you to try new foods?

A couple of other options were offered but went unselected — “Not at all” and “I almost never eat the same meal twice” — which were the two extremes.
