Salmon with Ha Ha Habanero Peach Chutney

Posted by MSC on 1/10/2013 to Grilling Fun!
I was in the mood for something light and healthy and a little sweet and spicy. I went shopping around at our local grocery and was disappointed I couldn't find a ripe mango, my first choice.  I couldn't find any good looking peaches either, so I opted for two cans of no syrup, no sugar added peaches.  But I can't WAIT to duplicate this recipe in the summer when our Michigan peaches come in to season.
 
This hit the spot, definitely a little zip, and we served it over a bed of cilantro cous cous.  We will keep this on the short list of favorites.  Click here to see the details. 

Tuscan Quinoa

Posted by MSC on 1/8/2013 to Veggies!
After a perpetual food binge through the holidays, I feel like I need a little healthy living. Last night I arrived home and decided to throw something together with quinoa, one of my favorite "sides", but tonight it was going to take center stage.

Did you know that quinoa may be a good choice for vegans as it has a high calcium content and is gluten free?  It is also a great source of protein.

Simple but tasty with our Evening in Tuscany spice blend, avocado and tomato, I enjoyed my Tuscan Quinoa.  Simple to prepare, easy to clean up, and reasonably healthy, I think this recipe will be in my regular rotation!
