Quinoa Lentils Walnuts Salad

Quinoa Lentils Walnuts Salad

I love the already cooked quinoa and lentils from Trader Joe's and I always have a package of each in the fridge/freezer for emergencies. They are a lifesaver when time is short and you have to put dinner on the table. I also like cooking almost everything from scratch and that includes lentils and other beans, but tonight, I decided to use the already cooked ones and make a quick salad. I added walnuts to the mixture, then some crunchy…

Cranberry Chutney with Apples

This Cranberry Chutney with Apples could be a delicious addition to every year Thanksgiving meal. I never buy the cans of cranberries from the store because I love to control the amount of sugar I put in my cranberry sauce. Then, I like to combine flavors and textures, so the cans absolutely do not work for me. Even for you, the ones out there that are in charge of the cooking during the holidays, please buy fresh cranberries and make your…
