Asparagus, Ricotta, and Arugula Pizza

img_20190608_203222_463Ahhhh pizza. This is not my first pizza recipe on this site and it won’t be my last.

Cranberry Nut Granola Bars

The reason I eat so many granola bars is that I have a serious hangry problem. My day can be going along fine, then suddenly my blood sugar drops and within 30 minutes I’m irritable and nauseated. As a result, I carry snacks everywhere, and these are my reliable favorites. I prefer them over store-bought granola bars because commercial bars are so expensive, and they often contain chocolate or some mysterious sticky binding agent, neither of which I enjoy. When I make my own granola bars, I can use big pieces of fruit and nuts, and I get exactly what I want. This particular recipe is so easy: just one bowl, one 13×9 pan, and they make enough for a few weeks. Making your own granola bars is something I recommend to everyone. Once you go homemade, you won’t go back.
