Quinoa with Latin Flavors

Quinoa with Latin Flavors

I found the recipe for Quinoa with Latin Flavors a while ago, and after making it tonight, I’m sad that I waited this long to try it. Quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) is a South American grain; it’s gluten-free and a great source of protein. I’ve had […]

Granola Bread

Granola Bread

A few weeks ago I made Granola Bread. I’d wanted to try it for a little while. The benefit of making it now was that I could use up my very toasty granola, and make more! Also, I was hopeful that something as wholesome as […]

Power Granola

Power Granola

I was briefly on a kind of granola kick last fall. I tried a few recipes (and still really want to make the cherry almond granola again, since I didn’t get much of that for myself), but I’m not convinced that I’ve got the perfect […]

Mushroom and Barley Risotto

Mushroom and Barley Risotto

Last night I found myself at a loss. It was a Monday night at home, and I didn’t have any blogging backlog to try to catch up on. I didn’t have any recipes I wanted to look up. I didn’t have anything new to review. […]

340: Cherry, Almond, and Cinnamon Granola

340: Cherry, Almond, and Cinnamon Granola

I decided to make Cherry, Almond, and Cinnamon Granola for care packages I was sending this month. It sounded delicious, but should be pretty likeable since it didn’t have any ingredients that would be too unusual. This granola took oats, cherries, almonds, and sweetened shredded […]

337: Southwestern Bean and Barley Soup

Southwestern Bean and Barley Soup was a part of a recipe section from Eating Well magazine on food gifts that you could make. Before I made the soup mix to give to other people, I had to try it myself. The soup mix was simple […]

289: Olive Oil Granola with Dried Apricots and Pistachios

I’ve been eating my last granola for a while, and while I’ve grown fond of it (it’s good as a cereal!), I decided it was time for me to try something a little different. I’ve wanted to try Olive Oil Granola with Dried Apricots and […]

255: Barley Hoppin’ John

255: Barley Hoppin’ John

The recipe for Barley Hoppin’ John really appealed to me when I came across it. I’m not entirely sure why. Perhaps I just felt like having comfort food. I also really like barley, so I’m happy to come across different things to put it in. […]

254: Crunchy Granola Wedges

254: Crunchy Granola Wedges

I decided to make Crunchy Granola Wedges so that we’d start out the week with breakfast. This was very simple to put together. It was toasted oats (half of which should have been wheat flakes, but I didn’t have them), sunflower seeds, honey, and cranberries. […]

250: Spicy Honey-Brushed Chicken Thighs with 251: Quinoa Salad with Peaches

For dinner one night, I made Spicy Honey-Brushed Chicken Thighs. This was a very simple and fast recipe to make. You make a spice mixture of garlic powder, chili powder, salt, cumin, paprika, and ground red pepper. Coat boneless chicken thighs with it, and broil […]
