As our son worked his way through more and more types of solid foods, macaroni and cheese was inevitable. It is a pretty simple dish to prepare, after all. The big stumbling block for me was the whole notion of cheese coming in powder form. That's not really cheese. Not that I didn't eat a fair amount of the stuff from the iconic blue and yellow box growing up, but I wanted to make a more authentic mac-and-cheese for him....and work in some more wholesome elements.
Breakfast is serious business. So there are times, like Saturday mornings, when I don't mind putting a little extra effort into making some really delicious blueberry pancakes. Fortunately, they really aren't that hard to make. And they are significantly better than anything you'll get out of a box or shakeable bottle
"Can we have more quinoa for breakfast???" OK, so that isn't exactly a real question that I get asked. But there's no reason it shouldn't be. This dish is full of all sorts of tasty breakfast items: eggs, sausage, tomatoes, cheese, onions & peppers. The red quinoa is just the right thing to bring it all together.
