Happy Birthday to me

It’s not actually my birthday.. but my own cookware set!? Seriously?!!? YESSS! THANK YOU! ūüėÄ Using it this summer : )

Just finished clearing up after dinner, and watching the amazing race while writing this. My friend Tammy and I are determined to be on that show someday! ūüôā

On another topic, I had picked up some whole what orzo pasta at Whole Foods last week since I’ve never tried it, but had seen some delicious-looking recipes that used it.

Ingredients: Whole wheat orzo pasta ~ Chicken ~ Capers ~ Cumin ~ Tomatoes ~ Salt & Pepper ~ Lemon juice

Directions: Sautee the cumin and capers for a few minutes, then add the orzo and the rest of the ingredients! Most of these ingredients can be found in your pantry Рand if not, replace it with something that is Рjust jumble ingredients that you think will work together : )

For a side, we had this random mix of random beans and celery. it was interesting.

Ingredients:

~ Chickpeas, Barley, Black turtle beans, Adzuki beans, Kidney beans, Celery, Pasta, Onions, Salt, & Dressing.

And for desert, Quinoa cake!!

Ingredients

~ 3 eggs ~ 1/4 cup sugar ~ 1 cup quinoa flour ~ 1/4 cup orange juice (about 1 small orange) ~ 1/3 cup of grated, unsweetened pure chocolate ~ 1/2 tsp salt 

Directions
~ Beat the eggs, and add the sugar gradually. Mix the chocolate and salt into the flour. Add the chocolate-flour mix, and orange juice into the egg/sugar mixture – alternating between the two. Then.. pour into pans and bake for about 35 minutes! ūüôā

Is there a reality show you wish you could be on?!

  2. What a great present!!! Cookware is the very best. Congrats!! All those dishes look tasty! I’ve never heard of a quinoa cake, it sounds great!

  3. Oooh nice cookware set! I want my own…

    The whole wheat orzo sounds delish! I love orzo, and that quinoa cake, oooh, I’m intrigued. I barely use other flours besides AP and almond, I think I want to try using other ones.

    And reality show! I WANT TO BE ON MASTERCHEF! haha I tried auditioning for it this past year but I didn’t make it, but it was quite a fun experience! I definitely want to go again!
