Jul 30 While I enjoy all fruit, I never purchase cherries too often because I always have felt limited as to what I could do with them. Usually the only thing I made was a basic fresh cherry pie or an apple cherry crisp. But then I realized that I ain’t no basic chick and made this bright salad with all of the good things in life.

I’m sorry for not posting any recipes last week – I went on holiday and took some time off from technology, which was amazing! I’m back now though, feeling totally recharged and bursting with a million new ideas for awesome recipes, including this one for a carrot, lentil and raisin salad tossed with quinoa, pint nuts and roasted butternut squash and mixed with a tahini, tamari, lime and olive oil dressing.

It may sound like a long title for a recipe, but trust me it’s super easy! It also makes for a perfect spring dish as it’s very light yet the squash adds a filling, satisfying texture to each bite and all the fibre and protein from the quinoa and lentils means each plateful actually really fills you up. The wow factor of the salad however lies in the inclusion of the raisins though – they just taste incredible.

I’d love to tell you more about the salad but I feel like I should share one more awesome thing about my holiday – I converted my whole house to vegan eating! Serves 3: - salt. Moroccan Quinoa Salad. The thanksgiving weekend is over. It was our first thanksgiving ever and we did what all people in America do. Ate way too much. It turned out that one of David’s relatives lives in San Diego, and he invited us to celebrate a traditional American Thanksgiving dinner with him and his family.

It was a fun experience and all the zillion different dishes tasted delicious. Although next year we will arrange it ourselves, we figure that we could try to make those pies without using so much sugar.

Vibrant valentine's day: pink quinoa salad w/ beets, blood orange + chimichurri — dolly and oatmeal. Speaking of rooting...this beet salad! (<--- see what i did there?!) These past couple of years i've shared chocolatey valentine's recipes, here and here. this year i wanted to create something just as festive but in salad form - basically because i've been craving all the savories lately. while i wasn't always a firm believer in beets, i've come to love them in almost any form (even tacos!) , i also knew they would make my quinoa the most vibrant shade of pink/magenta. because beets are so earthy in flavor i wanted to juice it all up by adding some acid in the form of some lovely blood orange segments, and a parsley chimichurri sauce. it's all served up with some green sprouts, toasted hazelnuts and a few squeezes of orange juice; a simple meal or side to enjoy in the company of others, or on your own! :) have a lovely week!

"I had that feeing you get - there is no word for this feeling - when you are simultaneously happy and sad and angry and grateful and accepting and appaled and every other possible emotion, all smashed together and amplified.

Why is there no word for this feeling? " -Cheryl Strayed, Tiny Beautiful Things The ocean does this for me, I love it and hate it and need it; so I was happy to find myself there, feeling my proverbial currents, with the person who understands me best. We took this salad and a few other snacks to our favorite picnic spot. I've talked about it here, multiple times, but when I am feeling frazzeled and a bit out of control, I need to look out at the huge expanse of ocean and box up my worry in the face of perspective. The unrest is powerless against that dark blue horizon. Maybe more later.

I'm teaching a class this afternoon - talking about eating real food, my book, and serving a few appetizers.
