I have been tweaking and perfecting this granola recipe for many, many years and have finally achieved the perfect taste and texture. This crunchy granola has minimal sugar but is high in fiber and flavor. A few evenings a week, I make a huge batch, store it in an airtight container and enjoy it each morning with some almond milk, oat milk or Greek yogurt, and topped with fresh berries. This recipe is so scrumptious, I could never go back to store-bought cereal. And not only does it taste incredible, it's easy to make!
Guidance can be very subtle. Finding ways to recognize and follow that guidance can be a timesaver.

Sometimes it’s about getting us into a flow to make our lives easier. Here is what everyday intuition can look like, if you’re willing to recognize it.

I made this dessert for Mother’s Day last weekend and it was a big hit. The cake is not overly sweet but is full of flavor and pairs well with the light, tangy mascarpone frosting. Sans frosting, it would serve as a nice sweetbread for breakfast or brunch. But, if you’ve never had mascarpone frosting, it is a magical delicacy you don’t want to miss out on. Enjoy!
How to Design Your Life: I grew up in a small town with three sisters. Wanting to indulge our possible talents and interests, my parents invested in a baby grand piano and piano lessons. Our teacher, Anne Scoggins, not only provided excellent instruction in her music studio, but she also insisted we go before adjudicators at Meredith College to get written critiques and a certificate of our progress each year. Not being terribly dedicated to honing our craft, these annual performance reviews became quite stressful.
On Saturday, May 14, "We Are WNC" along with concerned citizens of Haywood County will host a rally in Waynesville to stand in solidarity that the right to choose an abortion be protected in the wake of a draft Supreme Court opinion that would overturn Roe. V Wade. The landmark decision from 1973 has given women and others who can become pregnant access to safe, legal abortions.
