Vanilla Rose Granola

Spring has arrived! Although it might be tempting to reach for the beach towels and raw salads… we’re not quite there yet. This vanilla rose granola is a celebratory recipe for making it through yet another winter.

How Quiet Can You Be?

“The French mathematician Blaise Pascal wrote, ‘All man’s miseries derive from not being able to sit quietly in a room alone.’ We have become experts at filling our lives with noise and activities.
