Stripe Hype

Happy Monday everyone! There were finally blue skies in Los Angeles over the weekend. We dined al fresco Friday night at my sister’s to kick off the weekend. The rest of the weekend was spent enjoying the outdoors, watching Social Dilemma, took my first Dance Church Class (SO FUN!), and read more about RBG a true hero who paved the way for women.

Curried Quinoa Patties

To print from e-mail visit


  • 3 cups of sweet potato puree (dice and boil potatoes until soft, drain and mash)
  • 3 cups of cooked quinoa (1 cup dry quinoa with 2 cups water cook for approx 20 mins)
  • 3 minced garlic cloves
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped sweet onions
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  5. Add the onion mixture to the quinoa sweet potato mixture.
