Breakfast Quinoa

This Recipe came from Martha Stewart’s website. I veganized it very simply by swapping the dairy milk out for soy milk. You can really use any non-dairy milk and I am sure it will be delicious!

Posted by on Jan 3, 2012 in Adventures | Comments Off on New Years Eve 2011

This year Jason and I spent our New Years Eve in Philly! It was such a good time from start to finish, that I just wanted to share a little about it.
