Was that confusing? But, all it took was one sip of their guava limeade and it was like I found my new bff. I’m not typically the biggest fan of sickly sweet drinks, which can easily happen to poorly made lemonades, but I’m all over this sweet yet subtly tart liquid refreshment. When made correctly.

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad. The Greek style salad, a salad with juicy tomatoes and cucumbers, tangy red onions, and salty kalamata olives and feta in a lemon and oregano vinaigrette, has to be one of my favourites and it is so easy to turn it into a light and yet satisfying meal with the addition of quinoa (or a whole grain) along with some chickpeas!

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

I always enjoy using quinoa in salads like this since it is such a nice source of protein, especially when combined with a bean, and it really makes for a salad that eats like a meal. I particularly enjoy this quinoa and chickpea salad because of all of the wonderful Mediterranean flavours where the juicy tomatoes and cucumbers play brilliantly with the salty olives and feta. Another wonderful thing about this salad is how versatile it is, I always have fun changing up the ingredients and some more that work well are roasted red peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts and even cool and creamy avocados!

21 Reasons to Be Keen on Quinoa

Some of these are recipes we’ve tried, some of these are recipes we’re looking forward to trying, all of them are fucking delicious. Sernik na zimno z truskawkami. Japanese vegetable pancakes. Last week was not my week in the kitchen, friends. I had great, ambitious designs on a rhubarb meringue tart that would be pink and pretty with a scalloped tart-shell edge and a meringue that looked like piped roses that had toasted petal tips. But as the week went on and as various really non-torments in the greater definition of the word but nonetheless tormenting to me mounted — thin curds, too thick curds, beige (you know, the color of pink rhubarb + multiple yolks) curd, slumped tart shells, wet meringues, useless broilers, blowtorches so close to empty, they emit the useless wisps of sleepy dragons, refill canister AWOL — my enjoyment of the project plummeted.

Baked Sweet Potato Fries with Curry Cilanto Mayo {gf +v} I’ve been obsessing over curry since I made my curry chicken salad sandwiches a few weeks ago (vegan option in recipe notes). So, rather than mix some curry into a little bit of mayo and eat it with a spoon my finger (I might have done a little of that…), I decided to make some baked sweet potato fries to go with it. Because, really, can you think of a better vehicle to carry this heavenly sauce to your mouth? Sweet potatoes may be slightly out of season, but snacks are not, and fries are one of my favorite snacks. We seem to pretty much always have a 5 pound bag of potatoes and a few giant sweet potatoes on hand, and I’m a little embarrassed to say that we probably eat some form of french fries 3 – 4 times per week.

Beyond Salmon: Beet Jello, Prunes, Walnuts, Oranges. Beet Jello -- that's the affectionate name my kids gave to this dish. Something tells me that term wouldn't stand a chance on a restaurant menu.

Corn and Avocado Fritters. Fritters are always a hit as an appetizer or as a breakfast food in our cuisine. The best thing about fritters is that you can serve them either warm or cold. They are tasty in both ways. You already know that I love to try new things with avocado and these Corn and Avocado Fritters came out of my curiosity. I had never had cooked avocado before and I was wondering it. Then making these avocado fritters came to my mind last night when I was in my bed just trying to sleep. Niskokaloryczny i Sycący.
