In preparation of our train trip to Santa Fe last weekend, I made these no-bake granola bars with maple-sweetened dark chocolate anticipating that the snack car offering would be slim (or not gluten-free).

Today was our last day in Iceland and it has been such a full and amazing journey. I’m sad to leave but plan to have a photo-heavy recap up soon with suggestions, tips, and our favorite places.
But to celebrate the first official day of summer, I couldn’t think of anything better than the beloved s’more. In bar form….
With winter reminding us this week that it’s not finished with us just yet, I felt sharing this roasted sweet potato, black bean, and fried quinoa skillet was appropriate.
When I can make a meal of pantry staples, I feel like I’m truly winning (at something), and this recipe is just that. If you’ve never “fried” quinoa before, I assure you it will become part of your leftover bag of tricks.

Back when I first went gluten-free, when it came time for a salty snack, I clung to corn tortilla chips as if they were the only good thing left in what felt like a big list of NO’s.

Our week got off to a rather unusual start. My husband, in one wrong move off the curb, broke his foot. We spent Sunday night in the ER with my family that rushed to help me get him there. And thank goodness for them, for as I, the healthy one with no broken foot, was a total wreck.
But my mom, taking note of her freaked out introverted daughter, chatted away with the nurses, x-ray technicians, and doctors that would swoop in and out, making friends with them all.
