Though the snow banks at the end of our driveway have melted into large puddles, and we can now park our cars side by side again, March never feels like spring to me.

Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.  Winter and autumn have long been my favorite seasons, a time for warm, comforting meals and rich, sinful desserts. So when March comes, and people breathe a sigh of relief for slightly warmer temperatures (boo, no more snow days) I let out a sigh of exasperated inevitability.  Soon it will be time for me to pack up my “Let it Snow” pillow.

But at least I can keep the flavors of winter alive for just a little bit longer.  I’m a yogurt lover, and am always looking for different ways to season my morning bowlful.  This granola encapsulates holiday cheer with its bright, spicy ginger and deep, lush chocolate.
