CHICKPEA QUINOA SOUP

This veggie soup is hearty and sticks to your bones on a cold winter’s day. I make a lot of soups in the winter and this is one of my go-to lunches. The chickpeas and quinoa go well together. I use a few can goods […]

MARINATED ARTICHOKE HEARTS

I was at a party and they had an antipasto platter with marinated artichoke hearts. I loved them and started using them in salads and pastas. They are so versatile and can be used in so many ways. But I noticed a few things when […]
