    I am so in love with Quinoa!

    I make these awesome Mexi Bowls with mexican chicken and quinoa- so much better than the rice version.

    My trick is to cook the quinoa in chicken stock to add a bit of flavour!

    Enjoy your posts, but one small irritation. . . . they are blurry and pale in the middle of the scroll and become clear only at the end of the scroll as they are just disappearing from sight at the top of the screen. I can never see a whole image with full image quality, only about half of an image. Is there something I’m doing wrong?
