I totally consider sweet potatoes fall food too… even though you can eat them year around. I’m glad to know I’m not the only person in that boat! I think it’s their color that makes me think of them as fall? Hmm. Donno. BUT what I DO know is that these look fabulous!! I used to hate sweet potatoes growing up.. I mean, I just straight up refused to eat them any which way they were served. But I’m a lot smarter now and I LOVE them! 😉 Love that you roasted these and tossed them with herbs, parmesan and garlic! Such a yummy combo, Gayle! I could eat just a BIG ole bowl of these for dinner! Cheers, friend! (Pinned of course!)
Quinoa is one of the trendiest foods around, and for good reason: This earthy whole grain, which hails from South America, is packed with protein and fiber—a perfect combination for those who are looking to stay energized and keep their metabolism humming.
“The quinoa is pricey and harder to get where I live, so I used a half cup of dry couscous and chicken stock instead of vegetable. It was great – lots of flavor! I’m wondering if anyone has tried freezing it and how it was.”
Fact: The terms used to describe shrimp size―small, medium, large, jumbo, colossal―mean different things in different locations, and the jargon has no industry regulations. The more universal technique measures shrimp by the count, or number. If the shrimp are “16-20s,” that means there are 16 to 20 shrimp per pound, regardless of the label’s large, extra-large, or jumbo designation.

A traditional New England clam bake that will feed a small army! You will have to plan ahead for this one.

Serve with lots of melted butter and bread for sopping up all the delicious juices.

“One thing I’ve learned as a chef is not to overfeed your customers—a food coma is very unpleasant,” says Charlie Parker. This salad of grilled spring vegetables feels just filling enough, thanks to the protein-rich quinoa and a puree of dates that are grilled first to soften them and intensify their natural sweetness.
Sweet potato, red bell pepper, and baby kale make this quick curry hearty and colorful. These vegetables make the meat almost secondary; just 12 ounces will go far here. If you can’t find baby kale, you can use spinach or lacinato kale cut into 1-inch pieces. Use the rest of the can of coconut milk from the satay to enrich the sauce in the curry. To cook the quinoa, simmer 1 cup uncooked quinoa in 2 cups water for 14 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed.
Sweet potatoes really shine when it comes to their vitamin and mineral content.  They are packed with Vitamin A, potassium, and antioxidants too, especially beta-carotene (which is responsible for giving them, and other orange veggies, their bright hue). On top of this, they’re a great source of fiber (each medium potato has about 4 grams) as well as complex carbohydrates that the body is able to use for energy. All of these benefits make their way into one little sweet potato package of only around 100 calories (for an average medium sized potato)!

Consider the nutritional value of the humble cricket: Each 100 grams of dehydrated tissue has 1,550 milligrams of iron, 340 milligrams of calcium, and 25 milligrams of zinc — three minerals often lacking in the diets of third-world countries.
