Quinoa and Egg Breakfast Bowl

Quinoa and Egg Breakfast Bowl Recipe - Andrea Meyers

Leftovers for breakfast is a time-honored tradition around our house. I usually have some leftover brown rice or quinoa in the refrigerator, plus a few random vegetables from various meals, and the boys and I like to toss some of it together to make healthy breakfast bowls on busy mornings.

Spring is almost here. The snow is nearly melted, the ground is starting to soften, and the first crocuses peeped out today, which means it’s about time to get out in our garden and start prepping the spring beds.

Butternut Squash and Cannellini Bean Bisque Recipe with Parsley, Sage, and Pistachio Pesto - Andrea Meyers

The crazy cold weather last week left us shivering. Up north people are more prepared for it than we are here in the Mid-Atlantic region. We had the fireplace going most of the day and sipped hot tea to stay warm, and ate some hot soup for dinner, which is fine by me because soup…

Polenta Toasts with Goat Cheese, Caramelized Onions, and Port Cranberries

Polenta Toasts Recipe with Goat Cheese, Caramelized Onions, and Port Cranberries - Andrea Meyers

I am generally not a fancy appetizers kind of gal, and in fact most of the time I am happy with hummus or some other dip, or nuts. You know, simple and tasty, not fussy. That all changes for the holidays. For Christmas parties I like the pretty stacked appetizers on crackers, baguette, or polenta…
