I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Blueberry Quinoa Breakfast

Creamy warm comfort-food breakfast. I made it for a change from oatmeal and cream of wheat.  But it might have just become my new favourite hot cereal!

1 cup uncooked quinoa
2 cups milk
pinch salt
1 tbsp whey powder (optional)
1/2 tsp vanilla
3 tbsps honey
1 cup blueberries
2 tsp ground flax
2 tbsps slivered almonds

Rinse quinoa and strain until water runs clear.  Now in a saucepan warm the milk on medium temperature 2-3 minutes.  Stir in the quinoa,  salt and whey if you are using it. Simmer on medium-low about 20 minutes, until liquid is absorbed.

Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, honey and blueberries.
Serve topped with ground flax and slivered almonds.
And a little table cream poured over the top makes it even creamier!
