But after eating this delicious, change-of-pace dinner, there was no way I could deprive you guys of this recipe. It is … Continue reading

Stuffed Peppers with Quinoa

I have three words for you: Quinoa Stuffed Peppers …I know! When I read those three words together, I was so inspired to make this dish! It does, however, take a bit of labor to prepare this dish. I found it to be fun though! First I sliced four bell peppers in half, and removed … Continue reading

Today I wanted to share my experience at an Ypsilanti restaurant that I actually discovered on Instagram, called Blue Wolf Grill. After seeing so many enticing food pictures and reading rave reviews, I finally made it out to Blue Wolf Grill on Washtenaw Ave for brunch this past Sunday morning. It seems Blue Wolf Grill’s … Continue reading
