Buffalo Quinoa Bites with Bleu Cheese Dip

Buffalo Quinoa Bites with Bleu Cheese Dip

Quinoa is seriously one of my favorite foods in the world. It is so versatile  and can be used in recipes that call for other ingredients such as rice, cous cous 0r some sort of filling.  I recently saw a recipe where it was used in making lasagna, in place of real noodles...genius!  Another one of my favorite things ever, is buffalo sauce.  At points in my life I have contemplated opening a restaurant with just buffal0 flavored foods...I think it would be a great success, because it seems like anything can be turned 'buffalo' style, and it's always delicious.  I … [Read more...]

Strawberry Goat Cheese Quinoa Salad

Strawberry Goat Cheese Quinoa Salad 2

Around this time of the year, I love shopping for berries at the local Asian Farmers Market.  They are so cheap ($1 per container of strawberries), and while they won't last for days, if you have a recipe in mind they are perfect.  I went a little overboard that weekend with my strawberry purchases.  We were hosting a brunch and I had decided to make a strawberry danish, and I had also made fresh Strawberry and Basil Margaritas the night before. So I stocked up, and had some left over.   With perfect timing, my friend shared a recipe with me for a Seasonal Strawberry Feta … [Read more...]

Skinny French Onion Soup

Skinny French Onion Soup 1

If there is one soup that I love, it's French Onion.  It's rich, decadent, and delicious.  However, since I became a vegetarian, I realized that this soup is actually made with a beef broth base (no!!), and although I may have had it a few times since becoming a veggie (give me a break!), I wanted to find a way to make it using a vegetable base.  Turns out making it with vegetable broth is just as delicious, as long as you give the onions the time it takes to carmalize and brown.  I also decided to lighten it up a bit, and make it into a super low calorie meal.  Adding … [Read more...]

DIY Photo Eye Chart Art with Tutorial

Eye Chart

Last year when I was researching things for my gallery wall, I stumbled upon this great tool for making your own Eye Chart Art. I thought it was so cool, and started experimenting with different combinations.  I loved how my son's name looked, with his birthday, and it fit perfectly.  I made one, printed it, and hung it up near his room. Everyone always compliments it, and I tell everyone how easy and super cheap (just the cost of a photo print!) it is.  There are a few tips and tricks though, so I decided to share a tutorial on how to make your own! This is the final Photo Eye … [Read more...]
