Black Bean and Quinoa Salad

After baking 50 cupcakes for a summer school event, then following that up with cake, frosting, and fondant this weekend, I was ready for a good, healthy meal. My favorite weeknight dinners are always the ones that just require a single bowl and fork or spoon. This one is […]
