Once or twice a week I make quinoa in my rice machine. This way I have cooked quinoa ready for recipes, stir fries, or to mix in to a recipe.
The muffins I made today would be great with any berry (blueberry, cranberry, raspberry, blackberry) fresh or frozen, whatever is on sale! Whatever flavors your kids enjoy. You can also use a nut, or a chocolate chip of any kind. One son hates chocolate chips, and only likes white chips.
Today we offer for your snacking pleasure:
