Kale & Quinoa Patties

Kale & Quinoa Patties

I found a version of this recipe on Pinterest + couldn’t wait to try it as I love quinoa + kale but had never tried them together in a recipe. I made these for dinner the other night and all I have to say is WOW!! They were so unbelievably good that I am now mad at myself for not making them sooner. My husband really enjoyed them too which is always a plus, I know this is going to be added into our dinner recipe rotation for sure this summer!  To make things even easier, I pre-made the quinoa before we went to the gym and then once we got home it was super easy to get dinner on the table which I loved. This is a healthy recipe but loaded with flavors… nuttiness from the quinoa and parmesan cheese, crispness from the spring onions and kale, and a rich buttery flavor…

Cucumber on WhiteCucumbers are cooler than you think…

1. Fat busting: Do you ever wonder why women put cucumbers on their eyes to relieve puffiness? The photochemical in cucumbers makes the collagen in your skin tighten, thus the lack of puffiness. Did you know that you can rub a cucumber on a problematic spot of cellulite anywhere on your body to lessen the visibility of it? Did you also know that it has the same effect on wrinkles? Wow, it makes purchasing those fifty dollar creams seem a little silly, doesn’t it? You can also rub a little bit under your kiddo’s eyes after a long bout of crying to avoid that puffy ‘I cried for an hour straight’ look.

2. Defogger: Do you get annoyed when you get out of the shower and you have to fight the fog on the mirror? Who has time for that when the kids…

Just a Smidgen

Harriet’s back!

 with another of her, my, our  favorite family recipes! She made this one up and laughed when I asked her to write it out for 16-year-old me because she didn’t know what to call it..

“Gran’s Veg Delight”

she proclaimed.. she thought that made the dish sound pretty special!  It was.. it is!  You’ve probably made or had something like it.. in a pinch Gran would use a tin or two of Vegetable Soup for the filling. If you have left-over peas and carrots.. feel free to toss them in.

I couldn’t resist changing up the biscuit topping. I added seasonings from this vintage
song..  ” Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme ” 

It’s like Thanksgiving all over again, in every bite!

BTW, these are the best photos I could pull off with my iphone app. It gets dark so early now.. and I rely on natural light. It was fun…
