    Not Your Mama’s Black Bean Sweet Potato Chili + Occasional Heartburn Relief

    Butternut Squash & Cranberries Kale Quinoa Salad

    What I love most about summer time, besides being able to spend time with the kiddos. It’s about all the fruits and veggies that are in season. My kids have always been huge fans of salads, which is amazing. They’re always up for trying new foods, so I thought making tasty healthy recipes with quinoa loaded with some veggies would be the perfect kickoff to our summer vacation. Since being out of work at Elon for summer break. I miss being able to cook everyday, who knew you would miss cooking everyday. So over summer break, my personal goal is to try new recipes that I can bring into the…
