I have been a fan of homemade granola for as long as I can remember. I literally grew up with it as my mother made it way before it was a trend to do so.

When I was in college, I would pack big tins of her granola to take back to school with me. I would snack on it when I studied, and top my…

I first tasted harissa when I was 19, and I traveled on a lone adventure to Tunisia after spending a semester abroad in France. I browsed the open markets, with their appealing drapey white cotton clothing — I wore billowy pants from that trip for years to follow.
