Vegetarian, delicious, fridge-clearing quinoa pilaf recipe

Quinoa is fast becoming my signature dish at home. I started incorporating this versatile grain more and more into our meals at home last fall and it has just blown me away with its potential. Our hands-down favorite quinoa dish right now is Quinoa Pilaf; I even set it out for our family dinner at Christmas! It's vegetarian, delicious, and a great way to clean out the vegetable drawer stragglers (lone celery stalk, anyone?). Plus, there's more protein in one ounce of quinoa than in one ounce of meat! HA!


Butternut squash soup with seared cod

Growing up, I never ate butternut squash, but my husband did. Two glorious years ago he introduced me to the oddly shaped veg. We became friends.

Today I have to share with you a wonderful soup and fish combo. It sounds weird, but looks and tastes delightful.
