I love granola. Just love it. I’d been seeing on many blogs about how to make it and I felt like it was troublesome – and also figured that it would take a long time to make it taste good. However, my husband demolished half the batch, and he doesn’t even *like* granola. He kept …

Tangerine Chess Pie – Cheaper

IMG_0538

Today was the second time I have made this Tangerine Chess Pie from Southern Living. I obtained the recipe from the most recent issue of Southern Living, although from searching the recipe online it appears it was also in the January 2001 issue.
