Jonny Appleseed by Joshua Whitehead Trigger Warnings: child abuse,Continue reading “March Wrap-up”

The No-Guilt Broccoli Fettuccine Alfredo was quick to put together and addictively delicious. Bonus: it sneaks some greens in (if it’s not obvious from the title I am referring to broccoli).
The Caprese Quinoa Bake is essentially a one-dish quinoa casserole that mixes together the flavours of Caprese salad (mozzarella, tomato and basil) with hearty quinoa. I used tri-colour quinoa and it tasted and looked great!
