Maple Sesame Almonds

February 11, 2013

Plain almonds are good….but I find flavored almonds taste even better. I’m more likely to eat this superfood if they have a bit more complexity to them. I’m always looking for a protein-friendly snack to pair with fresh fruit in the afternoons, and these have been my go-to all week. Almonds make such a great […]

Evolution of a Meal

Orange-Coriander Tilapia with Sugar-Snap Peas and Quinoa This recipe was born last week when we decided we hadn’t had sugar-snap peas in a while. We needed something cheap to go with them: frozen tilapia. And that was that. Then we got 5 oranges from the husband’s grandmother. It was decided that oranges would be involved […]
