Mexican Quinoa with Roasted Vegetables

Chicken Cauliflower Curry Soup

I can honestly say that this soup is ranked up there as one of my favorites.  I happen to adore the flavor of curries but there are those people (like my husband) who are not big fans.  Let me follow that with…he inhaled two bowls!  Besides, it’s always good to be open-minded about trying new foods so […]
