Quinoa Tabbouleh

So I’ve been MIA again, but this time, at least I have an excuse! I spent a lovely 11 days last week up in Massachusetts. I got lots of wedding planning done, had a wonderful bridal shower thrown for me, and got to celebrate the marriage of 2 of our best friends. So many weddings…

Apparently, pistou doesn’t include pine nuts, like a traditional pesto does. But basically, it’s a snotty French nut-free pesto. I’m allowed to make fun of the…

American Flag 7-Layer Dip from jessfuel.com

Happy 4th of July!! Holidays are my favorite excuse to make food because I love cute themed stuffed! Last year, I made some patriotic white chocolate dipped berries. This year, I wanted to make something different. I found lots of sweet suggestions, but wanted to make something other than dessert. Finally I found a flag…
