After months of trial and error I have finally found my favorite veggie burger and all it took was a little quinoa. If you haven’t discovered quinoa yet, it is a grain like crop grown for it’s seeds. It’s actually not a grain at all but closely related to beets and spinach believe it or not. Packed with protein, magnesium and iron this nutty flavored seed is perfect for toddlers, kids, and insane marathon/ultra runners like my husband. These burgers have now become a favorite in this house but I warn you it took awhile for Mia to get used


A couple of days ago my phone rings. It’s Kim, my next door neighbor and sometimes a product reviewer on In Sock Monkey Slippers. This is what happens when you live next to me; I talk about you to hundreds of people and make you work for me without real pay but it’s all good because I feed you constantly. Kind of like Oprah and Gale. She’s in a hurry (has some REAL work to actually get to) and begins to tell me that someone is looking for me, contacted her and wants my phone number.

spinach and sweet potato quiche

To save myself some time in the morning from cooking everyone’s breakfast I spent about thirty minutes and cooked up a batch of theses, spinach and sweet potato quiche.

This is more of a toddler food and she’s at that in-between stage. So I needed a second opinion and who did I go to? The neighbors baby and she liked them so it’s a go. Spinach

I roasted a pork tenderloin last night and had enough left over to make Mia some too. Since I knew I was going to do this today I did not do anything fancy to the pork. I just seasoned a  pork tenderloin with a small amount of extra virgin olive oil and a small amount of rosemary and garlic and placed it in a 425° oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until it reached 155°.
