Quinoa Masala Dosa with Potato Curry

Quinoa is a superfood - one of the healthiest foods in the world. It is a complete protein, and contains so many nutrients, fiber, magnesium, and folate to name a few. Though it isn't a grain, it can be used as a cereal grain. What I'm confused about is why more people don't incorporate this amazing food into their diets. I'm ready to make the change myself. In my opinion, quinoa is like the healthier, fitter, better looking cousin of rice.

100 Posts Celebration and Giveaway!

Last week, I officially published 100 blog posts! In fact, my hundredth post was this delicious mango milkshake post. 
I started my blog over 4 years ago, in 2010, to share my creative adventures, from cooking to painting to photography. Over the years, I've been able to hone my cooking skills, and improve my photography. I've had opportunities to share these recipes with people from all over the world and participate in wonderful collaborations.
Reaching 100 posts is a huge achievement for me. The time, effort, and dedication it takes to create blogposts is only known by bloggers and their families. I want to thank my mom, for her encouragement and support, my hubby, for his support and the awesome lens he got me, and you, all my readers. You are the reason I keep blogging and writing. Thank you.
