Did you know that Texas’s state tree is the Pecan tree? Texas produces approximately 60 million pounds of pecans every year. If they are stored properly, pecans are a great addition to several recipes and make a great snack year round. Check out this delicious and healthy dessert recipe to start using pecans in your food! This dessert is sure to satisfy your craving for something sweet!
Trying a new whole grain can be intimidating, especially when the name is difficult to pronounce. Quinoa (pronounced keen-wa) is a grain growing in popularity due to its nutritional value. Quinoa has more fiber and twice as much protein as any other grain. It can be used in a variety of dishes including burgers, stir-fries, breakfast bowls and even pizza crust.
Today’s recipe uses quinoa, black beans and cottage cheese. I love making this for on-the-road meals. These would also be a great option for kiddos who are in sports activities and need a quick meal before practice. You can freeze the mini cakes for up to 3 months and use them as needed. So instead of driving through the fast food line, grab a protein packed Quinoa Cake! Enjoy!
Carrot cake just feels right for a spring gathering!
