Tasty Tuesday: Creamy Quinoa Salad

Update 9/17/13: I am ashamed to admit that I didn’t actually try making this recipe before I posted it. My Aunty Nik cooked it and I demanded the recipe. Granted it’s still delicious, there are definitely a few tweaks that need to be made. Also, I’ve talked to two readers who have made it multiple times and improvised with whatever ingredients they have available. All their new dishes sound awesome! So don’t be afraid to throw in that last bit of cucumber of the shrimp you have leftover in the fridge, this recipe is great for that. And check out below for the tried and tested recipe.

Tasty Tuesday: Chocolate Fudge Frosting

Side note: I will have a recipe today, so as not to satisfy a terrorists hunger to be the center of attention. But, please see the bottom of this post for my thoughts…

When warm, it’s melt on your tongue chocolatey goodness. When cold, it hardens into pure chocolate bliss on top of your cake. Also, because I use coconut sugar, it doesn’t spike your blood sugar. Sweet!
