It All Begins With Food

Chocolate Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie, a cookbook review and a giveaway

Anyone who knows me, knows I love to get my hands on a new cookbook.

Justine | This seems like such a lovely recipe and a great cookbook! I love cooked sweet potato in smoothies -- it works so well to add creaminess and nutrition at the same time.
Jen Freese I would love to win this because due to medicines I need to take I have gained quite a bit of weight. I am always on the look out for healthy recipes; this looks amazing!

French Lentil and Quinoa Salad

Quinoa salad always makes a lovely light lunch. Combined with French lentils, this salad becomes a little heartier.

Jhuls I haven't tried cooking with quinoa or lentils, though I have tried eating them from friends... and they taste really nice. This looks so delicious and indeed a light meal to enjoy. Thank you for joining this week's Fiesta Friday party. I hope you are having a good time. :)
Natalie Browne Thank you!!
