We've had such beautiful weather lately! After this past cold, snowy winter, I'm savoring these amazing sunshine-y, 70-degree days.

I'm no stranger to cooking quinoa in soymilk... This breakfast quinoa topped with dried cranberries and toasted pecans is still a favorite around here, especially given the cold, snowy winter we've had!

I was six years old when the original Annie hit theaters, and I was completely smitten.
