Welcome New Friends!

The Girl Creative

Day 155.

I'm participating in a few blog hops today to mingle with other bloggers. If you're here from one of them, welcome! If you're a regular reader, I appreciate you so very much! There's a new recipe at the bottom of this post for you.

New here? Hungry? Here are a few of my recent favorites for you to try...











There's tons more here, so pull up a chair, make yourself at home, and find something good to eat. Thanks for stopping by!

Quinoa* Breakfast Cereal
What You Need:
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup milk (I used almond milk)
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 2 Tbsp chopped dried fruit (I used figs)
  • 2 Tbsp chopped nuts (I used walnuts)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup fresh fruit (I used blueberries)
How it's Done:
  1. First, you'll need to prepare your quinoa. Rinse it well, then bring to a boil and simmer as package directs. One cup of quinoa and two cups of water will give you roughly 3 cups of cooked quinoa.
  2. Next, combine cooked quinoa with the milk, honey, dried fruit, nuts, and cinnamon. Simmer until thickened, about ten minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in fresh fruit.
*Quinoa is a delicious grain that I would describe as nutty in flavor. It's very healthy and readily available online and in whole foods/health foods stores.
