Lovely Recipe Inspiration:
As we celebrate the first days of summer, I wanted to leave you with a little recipe inspiration with several ways to use quinoa. I honestly had no idea what to make for dinner the other day, but I had a batch of cooked quinoa in the fridge.

I had a conference call to do around dinnertime, so I left a bowl in the fridge for my man. We just passed 15 years of being together and we’ll celebrate our 10-year wedding anniversary in July. The love affair continues…
