Middle Eastern Roasted Tomatoes and Chickpeas with Bulgur

I love bulgur, which is a staple of Middle Eastern cuisine, traditionally used to make tabbouleh and pilafs. It has a satisfying, chewy texture and mild, nutty taste. Whole wheats, like bulgur, are richer in nutrients and vitamins than refined, processed wheat, which has been stripped of many beneficial ingredients. You can use bulgar in place of wheat berries, couscous or rice in your favorite grain salad recipes. This Middle Eastern Roasted Tomatoes and Chickpeas with Bulgur is a great way to give it a try!

California Quinoa Salad

Yesterday at work, I wandered into the staff kitchen to find several people surrounding this California Quinoa Salad. They said it was the best salad ever. Of course, I had some, and yes, it is truly delicious. My friend Kristi made it. It has so much flavor and perfect for a weekday lunch. 

Quinoa (pronounced ‘keen-wah’) is a superfood, which is a complete protein. It has the perfect ratio of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats and is one of the best sources of protein you can get from a plant source. It is gluten-free and one of the few plant foods that contain all nine essential amino acids. ​

Penuche Fudge

Penuche is a deliciously sweet fudge made from brown sugar, butter, milk, and vanilla. Penuche is made by the caramelization of brown sugar. Its flavor is similar to caramel.  You need to have a candy thermometer to make this successfully.
