It is just not that difficult to come up with a reason to purchase berries. I’m never quite sure what to do with them, but it never takes me long to figure it out.
This simple granola recipe is one of my favorites. It’s chock full of nuts and dried fruits, with a touch of sweetness from honey. It’s a great way to get a little energy for your morning.
