When it's just the family, with no guests, it's going to be a vegetarian extravaganza. It's a must when both my husband and daughter are vegetarians. So looking at your veggie burger, perhaps I'll prepare a new version of something that is always appreciated in our household! Also thinking of preparing a pasta salad made with one of your quinoa pastas.

Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything. Do you have any tips and hints for newbie blog writers? I'd genuinely appreciate it.
