Greek Quinoa Salad

Greek Quinoa Salad. Healthy and easy to make! Perfect as a side or main dish! www.serenabakessimplyfromscratch.com

Colt's been on vacation this week so he could catch up on all the never ending projects that need to be finished.
He spent last weekend with the kids digging a ditch and installing a french drain in the back yard to hopefully cure the small natural spring we had forming in the middle of our grass.
It was constantly like a mud pit year around and of course the dogs and kids would want to walk right through it unless you watched them carefully at the door.
Just for the record we aren't talking just a little bit of mud we are talking halfway up their legs kind of mud.
Hopefully he's finally solved the backyard swamp mystery or he might end up going crazy! 
We just happen to go to small group with a few guys that have perfected the art of growing grass and Colt's swamp has kept him from his dream yard. 
While he was busy with his projects I made this Greek Quinoa Salad.
It's the perfect side dish, lunch or even dinner since quinoa is high in protein.
This is one of my favorite ways to sneak quinoa into the kids at the moment.
They love Greek Salad so it makes an easy transport vessel.
I happened to have some leftover uncooked red quinoa from when I made this Quinoa Shrimp Mango Pomegranate Spinach Salad but any color quinoa would be equally delicious!
I know you'll love this recipe as much as we do!

Fully Loaded Baked Potato Salad #SundaySupper

Fully Loaded Baked Potato Salad
For this weeks #SundaySupper we are having a Picnic and we all know the best part about a Picnic is how fun all the different recipes are to taste test! 
I can't wait to read through and make a few of the different ideas there's always so many amazing recipes shared during #SundaySupper!
A huge Thank You to T.R. of Gluten Free Crumbley for hosting! 
This week I decided to make my Fully Loaded Baked Potato Salad.
It's taken me a bit to perfect this recipe. I started off the first few times making it with leftover baked potatoes but the potato texture was never right.
So I went with boiled red potatoes and left the skin on for texture and loaded it with all our favorite potato toppings.
I love to have a few different potato salad recipes for Summer Picnic's and BBQ's!
There can never be too many options on the table!

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp Colt's Favorite!

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp my husbands all time favorite dessert!

*Updated*
I've made this recipe a million times since I first shared it 4 years ago but it always ends up devoured before I can take a picture so I finally fought off the family to take a new pic! 
This is Colt's all time favorite dessert and the way straight to his heart.
It's so easy to make with very little work so it makes a regular appearance on our table this time of year while the rhubarb and strawberries are at their peak.
I know you'll love this recipe as much as we do!
