Cheeseburger Macaroni

We had a snow day last week. I love snow day– I guess I could be doing work in my pajamas, but why?!?

But this blanket, I specifically… Continue reading

Quinoa Stuffed Peppers

A couple weeks into the New Year. How are you doing with your resolutions? I’m staying fairly on track– gym this morning, and I am currently still full of energy.
