For those of you looking for a great recipe site, I have to highly recommend FineCooking.com. I used to get the magazine, but discontinued my subscription. While I do miss leafing through the glossy pages of yummy food I find the site to be much more versatile. So far over the past month I've made 4 different recipes and they've all been amazing! These are the winners to date:
Quinoa Salad with Apples, Walnuts, Dried Cranberries, and Gouda
Greek Macaroni & Cheese
Quinoa and Avocado Salad with Dried Fruit, Toasted Almonds and Lemon-Cumin Vinaigrette
Curried Chickpea and Summer Vegetable Stew
This is on the menu for tonight. I'll let you know if it makes it to the list of "must make again":
Seven-Layer Grilled Southwestern Chicken Salad

Gwen is 3 months old today and is changing and growing more every day. Literally. The past week alone week has brought us a full pound in weight gain (she's finally over 10 lbs.!), her first real laugh (once), and an 8 hour stretch of sleep (once).
I've heard people say that they wish they could "bottle up" these moments and this morning I experienced just that. As Gwen drifted off for a nap after a morning feeding, I watched her little mouth continue to suck as if she were still nursing, her bottom lip quiver, and the sleepy smiles. I tried to burn this picture into my brain because I know this stage won't last forever. Thankfully, there will be more magical moments in store for us in the months to come.
Up to no good...
