 When I was in Italy I had an obsession. Every bakery I walked by, I had to go in and try their biscotti.

I had this terrible habit of sifting through the golden oats to pick out the clumps of delicious honey clusters and chewy pieces of dried cranberry, apricots and raisins. My favourites.

 

I had a craving for some of my mom’s sweet, nutty granola so decided to make a batch of my own. I … Read more
