Snow Day Cooking

  I tend to cook many things on a snow day and always a challah bread.  I have a favorite recipe and this time I tried to make one version with 1 part whole wheat flour.  It didn’t rise as well as the AP flour version but it was still delicious.  These are the things…

Absolutely Delicious (and easy) Dinner Buddha Bowl

This is very similar to my favorite Buddha Bowl from The Granola Bar in Greenwich.  Iz and I both loved it!  It is very versatile and very easy to make (only took me about 30 minutes).  We used quinoa because I already had it on hand but brown rice or farro would also be delicious. …
