A Nourished Family + {Quinoa Brownies}

Let me just say, again: I'm so thankful for all of you!! I love the mutual encouragment and inspiration.  In a recent email exchange with one of my readers, I was reminded that my goal and my focus is about having a nourished family. Not just me. Not just my health. Not just my happiness...but Dear Hubby and Babycakes too.  And that is why so many of my recipes are tested, tried, and devoured by my family before they make their way to you. ...

Nourishing Pinterest Boards + {Spiced Dessert Quinoa}

Hi friends! I am excited to share a few changes with you:  1) I am planning on posting new recipes more frequently (remember when I said I was cutting back?) 2) in order to make posting more frequently feasible, I am planning on shortening up my posts a bit, with one or two less photos...as seen in my recent Quinoa Bruschetta post. 3) I am creating a lot more Pinterest boards to separate out all of my recipes into categories ...

Rinse Your Quinoa + {Summer Quinoa Salad}

Did you know you're supposed to rinse your quinoa 7 -8 times before cooking it? I asked this same question to my thousands of Facebook fans, and many had never heard that, let alone done it!!  Why is it important to rinse quinoa?  Because there is a detergent-like bitter coating on each quinoa seed, called saponin, which naturally protects the quinoa from birds and insects.  If this is not rinsed before cooking, ...

Home Improvement Projects + {Bruschetta Quinoa Sliders}

After the blizzard we had on May 1st, I thought Spring would never come!! I know "we need the moisture" but seriously, couldn't this said moisture have come during WINTER?!??!! Well, I'm pleased to announce that Spring has officially sprung here in Colorado...and with it have come mild evening temps, hummingbirds galore, budding flowers, and a renewed desire to do home-improvement projects. ...

Overwhelmed + {Mexican Quinoa Cornbread}

Let's just get this out there right off the bat: I am overwhelmed. I recently cut back on blogging... and honestly, since doing so, I don't even know where to start or what story (or part thereof) that I want to tell.  It was the right choice for me. It is better for my family...for now. We have been dealing with a lot. Babycakes' behavior has been noticeably better and we have enjoyed sweeter moments together, as she's had to compete less for my attention.  And we've had more time to focus on others. And send handwritten notes. ... Read more » about Overwhelmed + {Mexican Quinoa Cornbread}

I'm looking forward to keeping up with your adventures. ... Read more » about Cutting Back + {Black Bean Quinoa Sliders}

Healthy Substitutions + {Veggie Fried Quinoa}

I am now in the habit of making healthy substitutions for my family. If I can keep a similar taste but include better-for-us ingredients, then I'm all in!! Some recent examples include my healthy key lime pie, my double-decker tacos, and my Zuppa Toscana. And with my father-in-law's recent heart attack, Dear Hubby has been even more willing to try new things in the name of better health.  I haven't changed everything all at once, but am slowing making over some of our favorite dishes. ...
