5-Minute Quinoa Recipes By What To Eat Published Sep 16, 2014 Today’s guest blogger is Food Network star Melissa d’Arabian, who joins Recipe Rehab and Everyday Health for the Brown Bag Challenge! Quinoa is a little like kale — it raced into our lives with flourish and fanfare, and we went from not being able to pronounce quinoa to it being available at even small neighborhood grocery stores. What’s so great about quinoa? Here’s the plan: Make a large batch of plain quinoa and then keep it in the fridge, cooked and ready to go for super easy recipes all week (because if brown-bagging is a huge hassle, you might give up after a day or two, which I don’t want!). Now that you have your quinoa ready to go, you are less than five minutes away from any of the following portable lunch ideas:
Great Recycled Craft- Yarn Wrapped Bottles with Decoupage! Do you like to craft with recycled items? I have huge collections of glass bottles in my storage because I never know what might come to mind. And there is nothing better than free craft supplies! A bright sunny project for a warm summer day. For this project I used: 3 Glass Snapple Bottles (cleaned) Yarn in three colors Decorative Napkins Mod Podge (Matte) White glue Silk Flowers Start at the bottom of the bottle, adding white glue and then wrapping it with yarn. Keep wrapping and gluing the yarn until you get all the way to the top. I used an off white yarn, bright green, and blue. Select a pattern from some designer napkins. Paint the section of the bottle that will have the design on it with a good coating of Mod Podge, and then press the design onto it. Here is the white bottle sitting to dry. I found that the lighter colored yarn had a neater effect, but they all came out pretty. The final touch was to add pretty ribbons to the tops of the jars and add some silk flowers.

How We Plant a Tomato Love Apple Farm's tomato plant sale will be held at 5311 Scotts Valley Drive in Scotts Valley (near Santa Cruz, CA) and will begin on Saturday, March 28, 2015 and continue EACH day until the end of May. How do we plant a tomato, you might ask? With a ridiculous amount of stuff in the hole, is the answer. I think they're just either too overwhelmed by the real stuff we put in there, or they actually believe we're throwing in a sink. This is how we plant a tomato. We started this beauty in our heated greenhouse in late January. The tomatoes are placed three feet apart. We get them from the restaurant we grow for, Manresa. If you're reticent to put the fish head in the hole, or simply can't get your mitts on any, we recommend using fish meal as a substitute. The next thing that goes into the hole are a couple of aspirin tablets and some crushed chicken egg shells. The aspirin is to help jump start the plant's immune system. Bone meal is the next to go into the hole. Good luck, folks!

I’m funny. Sometimes ha-ha funny, sometimes left-out-of-the-fridge-too-long funny. But as we all know, there are times for funny and times for seriousness. This is one such time. So this post will involve no funny. Because the information I’m about to introduce you to deserves a reverence that can’t be accomplished when diluted with hilarious jokes or cutting sarcasm. I’m going to teach you how to transfer any photograph or picture onto wood. You don’t know it yet, but this is the greatest day of your life. A couple of weeks ago I decided I wanted to try making something but it involved transferring a photo onto wood so I did a little research. So I kept looking for a cheaper (don’t have to buy anything) and simpler solution. It was the perfect solution and it works GREAT. All you need is a printer, a roll of waxed paper and a dream. That’s right. Cut a few sheets of wax paper to the size of a standard piece of printer paper. Find a smooth, light coloured piece of wood. You’ll be stunned.
