I have a ton of go-to recipes, which I store in a program called MacGourmet (if you’re interested).  Even though MT and I have our favorites, I still try to make at least one new dish a week.

Last night, MT commented on how I’ve made a lot of really good new recipes lately, and I thought it might be fun to start sharing some of them with you on a regular basis. Plus, most of the recipes come from blogs, and it will be a great way to show some very deserving bloggers a little love.


The best thing I ate this week

On Thursday night, I made Quinoa Fried Rice- a recipe that Andrea from Glam Hungry Mom recently posted.

You know that you’ve made a real winner when your husband interrupts you multiple times during the course of a meal to tell you how much he likes it.

But he’s not the only one who loved it.  I was seriously scraping every last bit out of the pan and right into my mouth when I was transferring the leftovers into a container.  And speaking of leftovers, we had the rest of the quinoa last night, and it was just as good as it was the night before.

I followed Andrea’s instructions exactly as posted, but I did use Bragg Liquid Aminos instead of soy sauce.

Hopefully, you’re already convinced that you should make this recipe for yourself, but just in case, I need to point out that this meal is not only delicious- it is also very healthy.

So, if you’re looking for a super simple meal to make for yourself and/or your family this week, this one is a winner!

I actually read the first link above last week when my friend Jen emailed it to me.  Boy, did it bring back some memories.  And yes- it also made me feel very old.


What is the best thing that you ate this week?


I hope that you have a safe, happy, and fun Memorial Day weekend!



  1. Looks yummy! Love the old Saved by the Bell pictures :)

    • I loved those too! AC’s mullet makes me laugh so hard, and it makes me proud that I was always a Zack Morris type of girl. ;)

  2. Your blog is seriously so CUTE! I love it! Thank for visiting my blog. The best thing I ate? Went to dinner with my girlfriends and had a lobster roll – yum!

    • Aw. Thank you for the sweet compliment! And thanks so much for visiting. :) A lobster roll sounds great. My son is 7 months old, and I haven’t had sushi since before I was pregnant with him! Have a great weekend. :)

  3. Looks delicious – YUM! I love my fruit bowl for lunch lately – kiwi, cantaloupe, honey dew melon, pineapple, berries:) I am craving a good hamburger again. Happy Weekend

  4. Yum! This looks so good! Quinoa is one of my favorite foods!
