Chickpea Quinoa Caprese Salad

Meet my favorite lunch. A few weeks ago I was craving a traditional caprese salad, which is mozzarella cheese, tomatoes and basil.  This fabulous trio screams summertime to me.  I wanted to kick it up a notch and add something hearty and protein-y, so I added quinoa and chickpeas.  Chickpeas are the answer to everything for me.  😉  And quinoa…  I’ve been adding that to almost every lunch lately.  I’m sure that my husband is cringing as he reads this because he’s not a fan of quinoa.  Not at all.  He can even detect the smell of it cooking from the …

Roasted Chicken, Potatoes and Salad

Happy Friday! I’m excited to share today’s recipe with you because it’s not often that I find a chicken recipe that is worthy of blogging about.  I’m super picky about the texture and taste of chicken.  If I get a gristly bit or it tastes too chicken-y then I don’t want it.  I basically turn into a 5 year old and say that I never want chicken again.  In reality it’s just a few days or weeks before I give chicken another chance, but I’m always worried about what will skeeze me out next with chicken. Anyway, now that I’m …
