Granola Bark

Granola Bark

I love granola; I know that it’s not “light” but now that there are three kids to bake for, its exactly the kind of stuff I want them eating. I said this to my friend the other day but when your kids are hungry, why on earth do you think a bag of Pirate’s...

Quinoa Pilaf

Quinoa Pilaf

I taught at Radnor High School between 2004 and 2010 – so that’s going back a long time now. My coworker was ahead of the trends and implemented a “grain bar” segment into our level 1 class. We cooked risotto, bulgar wheat, rice and quinoa. The kids called it “qwin-o-ah” and pretty much had...

On cold or rainy days,...
