Reviewed Herbed Quinoa
Jan 6, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com
“I am not Alton Brown but all the "lemon issues" are not related to lemon.
That sour/bitter taste is quinoa. The recipe fails to mention that before

“This sounds like a very close cousin of Greek Moussaka--my all time
favorite and one of those "engagement" recipes--really it works!
I cannot wait to try this using only lamb as I am a purest. The shell

because I want to try it...”

“This recipe is the same as a casserole my mother had from one of
those church lady cookbooks. Both my mother and I have made this
for all sorts of occasions for us and others with wonderful reviews.
As a result of many moves, I have lost the recipe. When Rae started
I knew this might be IT--the cottage cheese...”

“I am going to make the hot giardiniera this weekend--the recipe & method reminds me of my mother-in-law (she will nod and smile from heaven). You are just a really a great guy.
FN should be excited and thankful--you got me to watch again. As a mom, wife, cook etc.
I have always loved the sandwich in all its forms. Best of lu...”
