Cuizoo: feeding your wild animals

Gluten-Free Quinoa Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Sunbutter Mousse Frosting

Quick African Chicken Stew with Sweet Potatoes and Pumpkin Seeds

For the fifth meal of the Cuizoo Arsenal, I was planning to do a hearty soup.  Because this time of year especially, it is a fantastic one pot meal for cold days.  I thought I’d do something with beans and maybe some sausage, because that is an almost weekly occurrence for us.  But after doing…

Chocolate Easter Eggs: Two Ways

When I think of my grandmothers, I can’t help but think of food.  I think of my Mother’s mother (Nana) as the one who makes amazing soups, egg rolls and stir fries (how cool is that?), meringue cookies, mint jelly, and yorkshire pudding.  I am so fortunate to have her in my life and be…
