Quinoa Salad with Corn and Red Pepper

  Quinoa is all the rage these days!  Everywhere I turn there are either quinoa recipes or articles praising quinoa as the best food source ever.  I had to get on the bandwagon!  I’ve been holding on to a box of quinoa for a few weeks […]

Chicken Lo Mein

 I like to keep my eye out for recipes that are delicious and fresh substitutes for takeout.  This one caught my eye because it is packed with vegetables.  Also, it contains those scrumptious soba noodles that I just can’t seem to get enough of these days!  […]

Thai Chicken and Basil

I knew immediately when I saw this here at a Taste of Home Cooking that it would be something my husband and I would really enjoy!  And I was right!  This was delicious!  I may even make another one tonight!  That’s how good it was.  […]

Chicken Sausage Burgers

I thought these burgers were delicious!  Because of the fennel seed and other spices, they tasted very much like sausage patties, but fresh, and without all of that fat.  Also, the red pepper gave them a nice kick!  I found them to be much more […]
