Our pork loin process consisted of roasting it for 15 minutes, then slathering it with whole grain mustard, packing it in brown sugar and finishing the rest of the roasting process- pretty easy!

Once in a while I like to move everything around in my apartment- pictures, books, candles, knick-knacks. It makes it feel brand new. Our beautiful cookbooks are now the center of attention!

I roasted my first artichoke! For mine I cut the leaf tips with shears, trimmed the stem an inch, then sliced the artichoke in half. I then removed the “choke” or the spiky flower in the center. I poured a little melted butter on the inside and between the leaves and flipped it upside down to roast for 45 minutes at 375 on a foil-covered baking sheet. When it’s all done, flip the artichoke back open and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Blueberry Quinoa Breakfast Bake

INGREDIENTS

1 cup uncooked quinoa
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup of blueberries
2 eggs
2 cups vanilla soy milk (can substitute regular milk)
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup almonds, chopped

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 7-by-11-inch baking dish (an 8-by-8 works too).
  2. In a small bowl, mix the uncooked quinoa with the spices. Pour into greased dish.
  3. Sprinkle blueberries on top (you can substitute in any fruit or raisins here). 
  4. In that same small bowl, beat the eggs. Whisk in the soy milk and maple syrup.
  5. Pour the egg-and-milk mixture over the top of the fruit and quinoa. Lightly stir to partially submerge the fruit. Sprinkle the chopped almonds on top.
  6. Bake for 1 hour or until the casserole is mostly set with only a small amount of liquid left.
  7. Allow to cool, and then cover and refrigerate. In the morning, cut a square, microwave it on a plate, and enjoy alone or with a few dollops of Greek yogurt.
