Quinoa Power Balls

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…

Avocado Lime Quinoa Salsa

I have been talking a lot over at Mama Balance about how I’ve made a commitment with myself to focus on my own health and stop using the “I don’t have time to take care of myself and exercise” excuse all the time. I’m about a week and a half into it, and I have…

Fajita Quinoa Bowls

I’ve been visiting with family for the last couple of weeks and the other night we were laughing about the meals I used to cook. There didn’t have to be a special occasion. Thursday night was a good enough reason for me to spend hours planning, go to three different stores getting the right ingredients…

Pumpkin Quinoa Patties

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Libby’s for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. I’m guessing some of you read the title of today’s recipe and assumed that the baby is teething again and I haven’t slept and therefore have forgotten that it is spring and not fall.  I mean,…

Lentil Quinoa Salad

There are few things I love more than spring. The near perfect weather has me outdoors every possible minute I can be. Lucky for me Skye is totally an outdoor baby. She can be cranky as can be inside, and the minute she gets outside she is happy as can be.  Time outside with the…

#FitTeaDetox Review

If you have been following along you know that I recently made a commitment to myself that I would focus more on my heath.  For too long, I’ve been using the excuse that I don’t have time to exercise and eat as clean as I know that I should.   Although I do have some…

Southwestern Quinoa Patties

As far as staple recipes around our house, quinoa patties are near the top of the list. There are so many reasons to love them. The kids will eat them without fussing. Any time I can get all THREE of them eating the same thing, it is a huge win. They are also amazing on…

Spicy Rainbow Buddha Quinoa Bowl

In my last post I was talking about my plans for a Spring Shape Up.  Not a diet, mind you.  But a time where I focus on getting healthy and getting my mojo back after far too long of taking care of everyone else.  My plans are to focus more on the things I can…

Spring Quinoa Salad

When Wendy asked me to do a guest post on quinoa, I immediately knew exactly which recipe I would share! I live in Arizona, so we are definitely experiencing some spring weather right now and I have been eating up all the spring vegetables that I can find! I know that it isn’t quite spring…

Quinoa Broccoli Casserole

In my last couple of posts, I’ve been talking about how I’ve neglected my own health lately because I’ve been so busy trying to take care of everyone, run a business, homeschool and travel. I hit rock bottom last week and in addition to losing it, I ended up sick.  As in, I haven’t been…

Quinoa with Pecans and Brussels Sprouts

In my last post, I mentioned that I’d been really exhausted lately. Part of it is obviously having a baby that doesn’t stop and being 42.  (Why didn’t I do this in my 20’s????) But the other part is that I haven’t been taking care of myself lately in the way I should. There are…

Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan Quinoa Toss

It is unbelievably hard to comprehend that my baby girl is going to be one soon. I’ve bought the forward facing carseat. I know what birthday cake I’m making her. And I’ve even started to look at toddler activities on Pinterest. But I still can’t believe how fast this year has gone. I’ve talked about…

Balsamic Quinoa Salad

One of my goals for this year is to update some of my older work. When I first started Cooking Quinoa, I really didn’t know what a food blog was. To be perfectly honest I was hoping to create a little site that got a couple of hundred visitors a day and maybe make a…
