Chocolate Chip Quinoa Muffins

I don’t know about you, but I like to keep things simple in the morning. Although I clearly love to cook, I don’t wake up wanting to get my Betty Crocker on.  (Much to my boys regret.  They would eat pancakes Every. Single.  Day.) None of my children eat cereal and I don’t buy Pop…

Quinoa Crusted “Fried” Chicken Tenders

There are things in life that you never forget. One of them is my grandmother’s kitchen. When people came to visit, they always came in through the kitchen. To the immediate right, was a deep freezer, which was always stocked with bounty from their enormous garden. Very often, there was a cake or pie resting…

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind! Travel, getting ready for the school year, chasing my busy little toddler who gets more active by the day… Although I’ve loved every minute of it (except for maybe a few that were spent fishing rocks out of said toddler’s mouth), I’m definitely feeling the need to…

With a busy toddler in the house, I’m finding that this years back to school is requiring a lot more planning and preparation on my part. In addition to the boys school work, I’m really trying to focus on their diets. I was pretty easy on myself this summer, and relied on more packaged goods…

Almond Butter Banana Quinoa Smoothie

I’ve mentioned before that when we take road trips we almost never eat out. Yes, we will have an occasional meal in a carefully scouted out location. But for the most part, road trips just aren’t the time to take the chance of getting glutened. More than once I’ve found myself sick and miserable in…

Quinoa Florentine

I’ve mentioned before that I really struggle with my boys eating habits. They rarely agree on anything, shun vegetables and are more than a little picky. If I want them to eat the same thing I can either serve them grilled cheese or hamburgers. (Not exactly the healthiest options.) Fortunately, thus far, Skye is a…
