Summer Spice Bircher Muesli
Summer Spice Bircher Muesli

Bircher muesli was a very recent discovery for me. On this trip to the Hunter Valley, I was hovering over the breakfast buffet laid out with a million choices. When there is too much food, I am indecisive and I hover.  Like a kid in the candy store. Not being able to...
