We have had a rather snowy and cold winter in New England, but we can see the beginnings of spring. I actually felt happy the other day as the snow melted and I could see the mud underneath. This also means that the cold and snowy walks my dog and I have been taking will slowly be morphing into longer, less bundled, strolls in the woods. I would like to share today my recipe for granola.
