Happy Monday! First…a Merc update. (Pssst. Here’s a peek at the logo!) The warehouse, which we’re using as storage for inventory for the store AND as a shipping center for the online store, is actually a real warehouse now…with products and everything!
Here’s the second video of the day! Remember the Spicy Pasta Salad I posted a few years ago? It was based on a pasta salad I’d had from Whole Foods, and is so delicious with grilled chicken or beef.
Happy Monday! I have two videos to share with you today. The first is Strawberry Oatmeal Bars, which I posted here in step-by-step photo form way back in the dark ages of 2013!

I’ve been making quinoa salad for many years. But I admit, a little sheepishly, that it wasn’t until last year or so that I finally learned how to make quinoa fluffy and light!
Great job on Geography, guys! Note: We realized the answer to our upstate New York question was problematic, because there is a town named Greenwich in upstate New York.
I love this recipe! My mom used to make it using canned whole chiles (and that works beautifully, and enhances the whole “lazy” factor), but when I have the chance to use fresh poblanos, I jump at it.
Growing up on a farm, with parents who always tended to a large garden, I was exposed to a good amount of fresh produce preservation.
Ahhhh. Though I have shown glimpses of this beauty over the past few months, I have waited to feature it until I knew it was available everywhere—both online and in stores!

Though you wouldn’t necessarily know it from my blog, I have a thing for homemade candy. It’s true I spend most of my time in the kitchen making salads, chicken, soups … you know, the “real food,” but in my free time I really love to play around with more whimsical things, and homemade candy is about as whimsical as it gets, if you ask me.
Today, because it’s Monday, and because I love ya, I’m giving away three (3) pairs of these Corral cowgirl boots!
