I'm always trying to find new, healthy recipes. Sometimes, I think everything I make is full of calories. Quinoa is awesome. It's super healthy and tastes great. I've been trying to use quinoa a lot more but tend to run out of ideas. Today, I needed something quick and needed to have all ingredients on hand. I was working with a limited schedule. Baby A was napping and due to wake up any minute.

I found the Enchilada Casserole on Pinterest. I didn't have all the ingredients so I did modify it a lot. I replaced enchilada sauce with salsa and added green onions and rice. In the end, I was very happy with the outcome. Ken said it was great and very flavorful. I, on the other hand, didn't taste it. Day 1 of my Beachbody 3 day Refresh!

A Litte History...

It's simple, I started this website because I enjoy cooking. Cooking isn't one of those dreaded chores for me. I hope that after you try some of these recipes you begin to enjoy cooking too. Or maybe you already enjoy cooking but you are looking for new recipes or ways to spice up your old recipes. Whatever brought you to Kneady Kitchen, I hope you find it. I also hope you find happiness within your kitchen!

As I began to try new recipes and now as I try different recipes, sometimes several phone calls are made to my Mom and/or my Grandma. My husband can't imagine why so many calls are needed for one recipe...but I am sure you understand. "How do I do this?" "How do I do that?" "What temperature do I cook this on?" "How long should this cook?" "Why doesn't this look right?" The questions could go on and on! A trained chef I am not, but what I am, is a girl that loves to cook.

My goal is to provide you with easy to understand recipes and pictures to help you visualize what you are doing. I plan to continue to explore and experiment with new recipes and different ideas. I hope you will take this journey with me, checking back frequently and providing feedback, ideas and suggestions.

Thank you for stopping by We hope that you find Kneady Kitchen helpful and inspiring.
