For me, granola has always been a touchy subject, because I’m pretty picky about my granola. I like it my way, which means lots of granola-y clumps, rich texture, and flavor, flavor flavor. I used to have a certain type of store-bought granola that I thought was the best, and even though I always wanted […]

For most of my life, I couldn’t stand walnuts. Then, I started to accept them if they were crushed up in bread. Just recently I tried dark-chocolate covered walnuts and I do like those (shocker, I know!). Now I’m about to rant and rave about some Pumpkin Raisin Walnut Scones. (I still can’t say I […]
