  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…


  3. eh, formal training. who cares? the food you cook looks and sounds awesome. i’m sure it tastes just as good, too.


  4. All of the dishes look delectable, especially the black bean soup with coconut rice.


  5. Look like you had a great week!
