  1. dinner at YOUR house. every night. geez. i’m embarrassed by what i whip up compared to all of this.

    i’m curious…have you ever used quinoa in a recipe? i got hooked on it recently, and wondered if there was some sort of something you use it in/with.


  2. Thanks luv, but I don’t have any formal training when it comes to cooking. I’m mostly self-taught, from watching Julia and Jacques to reading cookbooks at the library.

    Re quinoa — I’ve never cooked with it, but I’ve had it while dining out.

    Use as you would couscous or white rice. Grilled chicken with quinoa and sauteed fennel; baby artichokes stuffed with quinoa and nut dressing; quinoa tossed with roasted vegetables, chervil and mint; quinoa with roast pork loin and caramelized onions…
