Quinoa Fried "Rice"

I made this once then I immediately found myself making it again less than five days later. Chris actually loved this so much that he asked me to make it for part of his birthday dinner. Do you know how BIG that is? ...more

Pot Roast

Chris has been asking for pot roast for a while, so obviously I had to make it for him. Pot roast is an ideal meal to make in the winter since it's slow cooked all day and helps warms your house (and tummy). Since there are only a couple weeks left of winter, I just had to squeeze this meal in! ...more

Breakfast Quinoa with Blueberries, Strawberries and Chocolate Chips

So we went to my parents' house and I got to spend some quality time with my mom ....more

Mediterranean Couscous Salad

Chris, Bradley and I often go to a Great American Restaurant for dinner when I don't feel like cooking, and one of their new "healthy" dinner options includes a couscous side dish. I don't think I've ever had couscous before, but this particular side dish made me obsessed with the stuff. The rest of the meal is just okay, but I specifically order it now JUST for the couscous ....more
