Creamy Mushroom Quinoa Risotto

Quinoa is one of the BEST foods for you. Its been hype for a while now, for a good reason, and will always be a staple in my pantry. However, I really haven't experimented a lot with quinoa in other forms besides boiled in water and eaten as a side, in salads, tossed with eggs and scrambles, etc. I've never actually transformed the quinoa on its own....

Grilled Shishito Peppers

How do y'all feel about peppers?? Me....I love ALL kinds. Sweet, spicy, raw, pickled...bell, poblano, banana, etc..I think they are a great healthy snack pickled, and I love them in all aspects of the food I eat. These are one kind of pepper I've been wanting to try: shishito peppers. On the heat spectrum, these guys fall in between, more mild, and every now and then you'll catch a spicier one.

It's never too early to pull out the crock pot. Or maybe I'm just wishing for fall to be here, like now, either way -- slow cookers are great to use year round!
