Quinoa with a Corn and Black Bean Salsa

The salsa is quick and easy to make....use canned tomatoes and a food processor.  Then mix it with quinoa.  It doesn't get much easier than that and it's really tasty.  (Credit to Corner Bakery, it's actually their idea)

The time needed to cook, shoot, edit, write and post is far and few between with 2 kids.  I thought getting out 1 or 2 posts a month would be doable....but even that's aggressive.  

So here's something new now that spring may have finally arrived, a Farro Salad with Artichokes and Sun-Dried Tomatoes.  For a little twist, I cooked the farro with beer...and in actually turned out to be pretty tasty.

Making pizzas with Whole Wheat Tortillas is actually pretty good and only takes 8 minutes at 425 degrees.  This is one of our favorite kid friendly recipes that's also easy to make.

The traditional Tortilla Española - a simple preparation of eggs, onion and potatoes.  The key here is the classic method of cooking the onions and potatoes slowly in olive oil until each potato is almost fall-apart tender and the onions have just about dissolved.  

It takes a bit of time to do, but for the 8+ servings you'll get out of it, it's well worth it.
