  • Quinoa with Butternut Squash and Carrot Stew

    Tonight we prepared this delicious, easy to make stew and quinoa dish, adapted from a recipe in Bon Appetit magazine.

This recipe comes from Weight Watchers, and, shock of all shocks, the portions weren’t of the usual minuscule variety. Chris says: I love the crust on […]
