Heidi’s Favorite Trail Mix

Trail Mix

I’ve never been a huge fan of trail mixes, especially those of the store-bought variety because there’s usually too many things going on in them that don’t appeal to my taste buds. Nor do I care for protein bars.  I know a lot of folks like them (my boys love LÄRABARS) and they are very […]
