While eating dinner the other night, and basking in the beautiful sunlight and warm breeze coming in through the back door, my husband decided to go all Debbie Downer on me.
The blogiversary giveaway is over, womp womp (BTW Congrats to Lisa for winning). Back to reality. So, where do we go from here? You may think you know a lot about me after one year of my rambles, but we have only scratched the surface of my crazy stories and neuroses.
Five Random Things You Didn’t Know About Me
Today, I have yet another great blog you guys should be reading, Duchess of Fork. Molly is an inspirational healthy cook. She always entertains me with her stories about her husband, sweet little girl, doggies, and cooking adventures. I really love her style of cooking, because it is so realistic and easy to accomplish on any weeknight. Get ready for a healthy summer masterpiece. Don’t worry, there is still cheese involved!
Hello Sarcastic Cooking readers! I’m Molly, the queen behind Duchess of Fork.
Queen….ya right. In my head I’m a queen, but in reality I’m a teacher-turned-stay-at-home-mom to a precious 1 year old girl. When I’m not chasing after her I enjoy hosting dinner parties, sweating at Zumba class, and chugging Diet Coke. Oh, I like to cook a bit, too.
Many thanks to Stefanie for allowing me to be her guest today. 🙂
Have you ever tried quinoa? It’s one of my absolute favorite grains because it is delicious and very versatile.
I find that quinoa makes the perfect hearty base for salads and side dishes. I love pairing it with veggies, beans and cheeses for a protein-packed plate that is just as delicious as it is healthy.
For this dish I chose to use some of summer’s finest offerings: grape tomatoes and zucchini. Nothing quite says summer produce like zucchini.
Throw in some black beans, cheddar cheese, and cilantro lime vinaigrette and we’re in business. This may very well be one of my favorite salads OF ALL TIME. It’s just that good. Even my toddler loved it!
I hope you enjoy this quinoa salad as much as we do. Thanks again to Stefanie for letting me stop by! Y’all are welcome to visit me at Duchess of Fork any time you like.
