Quinoa Pilaf With Mushrooms
My daughter hasn't warmed up to quinoa until this dish. The thing that made this a winner is sauteing the quinoa in olive oil to brown. It really brings out flavor! I didn't have a shallot or mushrooms, so I used 1/4 of a white onion, and a 1/2 cup of broccoli, chopped. I think it would be wonderful with the shallots and mushrooms, but I didn't have time to go to the store. I also used chicken broth (all I had on hand) with great results. I didn't find it too salty, but used good, low salt broth. The only thing I added was some shredded parmesan cheese to the hot quinoa once I dished it onto plates. Just a sprinkle. The family really liked this dish. It will make it into our regular rotation for sure!

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs
I made this recipe for dinner tonight. My 9 year old daughter was crazy about it!!! She isn't always easy to please, but I wouldn't call her a classic picky eater. She likes flavor and I suspect she is on her way to being a great cook. There wasn't a bit left on her plate. We are in a rental house during our remodel, and don't have a grill. I cut the breasts into 3 strips each, skewered them, baked for 10 minutes in the marinade, tossed the marinade, put foil on a cookie sheet, then under the broiler for 10. Perfect! I did marinade longer than 30 minutes (more like 2 hours). I would definitely increase the marinade time. Nice, simple week night main dish.
