French Chocolate Granola
Have we discussed Molly Wizenberg yet? She is who I want to be when I grow up. If you don't already know (is there anyone who doesn't know?) Molly writes the blog Orangette and wrote the book A Homemade Life. Her ability to tie lovely stories and memories into her recipes means that I love her food before I even start to cook it. Her voice is soft but powerful - it both convinces you to follow your passions and makes you feel certain that the two of you would be the best of friends. Um...or maybe that last part is just me.
This recipe for granola is one that she recreated after a trip to France with her husband. I won't even re-post the recipe here because you must go read the story behind it before you make it. Even if you're not a huge fan of granola, the smell of it baking is worth the effort.
