Blueberry Lime Cheesecake Parfait

Blueberry Lime Cheesecake Parfait

I accidentally discovered that if you put lime zest in vanilla yogurt, you get an amazing treat that tastes like key lime pie! Yes, it’s true. It was an accident. I confess. Umm, hello?! A HAPPY ACCIDENT! So I learned from my mistake and I ran with it. Enter: The...

Mediterranean Quinoa

Quinoa recipes have been trending this year so I have been wanting to jump on the bandwagon and try something new. Recently Chef Daman had his bowling team over for dinner to celebrate finishing 8th place (out of 30!) in their summer league. One of the guys is vegetarian so...
