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!

My kids have been complaining that we never do anything fun for the minor holidays anymore. Truthfully, now that they're getting older and after school activities have taken over our weekday evening schedule, I figured they wouldn't even notice their absence...
