New Food Adventure

Quinoa!  That is KEEN-wah for those who don't know how to pronouce it... I didn't.  I have heard little tid-bits now and again about this little mystery of a food, or grain, or nut, or seed.... Like I said I had only heard a little bit about it, enough to know it's "good" for you but not enough to even know what it is.  I now know it is a gluten-free grain ;)  (Not that I need that but it's nice to know.)  You kind of cook it like rice.  Anway I found this great article at and it has recipes that I am going to try.

Seriously I love this website.  I have found SO MANY recipes on it and none of them have steered me wrong.  So when I say I'm going to try a recipe from here I mean it!

Doesn't it look great!
Okay this one doesn't look great but it's Grape leaves and I so want to try it!

And since we don't have a family yet my favorite category is Recipes for Two.  The best part of this site is that each recipe gives Nutrition Facts and Notes and Tips for any ingredient that might be a little hard to find or confusing.  It makes experimenting super easy which is always a nice touch.

Oh And I found a whole website about Quinoa.

So that's my thought for today.


  1. Quinoa is one of our all time favorites!! I'll send some recipes when I get a chance.

  2. Yes please send recipes!!!! Can't wait!
