At the end of my last post, I promised another “Thai” recipe. And yes, I know, tacos are not Thai but just hear me out.
Our first day in Thailand, we were excited to get out and experience the town and eat real Thai food. We walked around searching for the perfect [...]
Hi, I’m Alyssa and I’m a secret hoarder.
Not really like the, I have 352 cat in my house and I’m thinking of adopting another sort. More like the I have a really hard time throwing away leftovers and other small things sort.

Why the name, you ask? Well, because this quinoa salad is a party in your mouth, duh.
