If you know me, you know I’ve been a Smoothie for breakfast devotee for decades. My husband Chris on the other hand loves a varied menu of eggs, toast, cereal, fruit, juice, yogurt and…granola. We go through a lot of it. And since I don’t eat it, I often forget to stock up on it. That’s just what happened the other week. That misstep inspired me to take matters into my own hands. Literally. It helped that Cookie and Kate, one of my favorite online cooking sites, was featuring this Orange & Almond Granola recipe. It sounded delicious to me, but I knew Chris would not like the orange flavoring. And so my first batch of homemade granola was born! It was easy and fun to mix up. Best of all, it was a hit with the Hubs.
