    Nutty Granola for Craving Ellie

    Today’s Craving Ellie in My Belly recipe is Nutty Granola, chosen by Leslie at Lethally Delicious. It can be found on page #38 of “The Food You Crave”, by Ellie Krieger.

    Recently, I decided to host what I affectionately like to call a “crafternoon” -an afternoon of laughter and creativity. I invited my Mum, my sister who lives close by (Sherry) and one of my best friends- (Bonnie). We had lots of fun, good food and laughter. These  along with a little glue, glitter and some pretty paper were happy remedies for some of the stress of our world at the moment.  A couple of years ago I did the same thing on a little larger scale with about 13 invited guests. I decided to scale back a little this year but didn’t want to miss out on it all together.
