Oh Monday, you tricky tricky devil. I’m actually in a pretty good mood this Monday morning, considering it’s Monday and all. I got a surprisingly good amount of sleep this weekend (though nowhere close to the 9-10 hours per night I desire.

This is the weekly … Continue reading

Quinoa 3 Ways

Quinoa 3 Ways

QUINOA. Say it with me now: Keeeeen-wah. Have you tried it? Have you ever had one of those grocery market deli counter pasta salads with the little crunchy balls in it and you didn’t quite know what they were? Yeah, that was probably quinoa. Quinoa is a protein-packed grain similar perhaps to couscous (in shape/size). … Continue reading

I don’t know about you guys, but the weather was just lovely in Northern California this weekend. It cooled down on Friday (and even drizzled a little!), which made way for a beautiful weekend in the mid 70’s. Made me feel like I was in Santa Barbara again! Except that I’m not 20 anymore, I’m … Continue reading
