Mediterranean Farro Salad

Mediterranean food is up there on my list of favorite flavor combinations for sure!! I love all the sauces, textures, olive oil and give me all the feta cheese!!! I typically make this recipe with quinoa but I have recently been cooking more with farro and its so good!!  Farro is a grain, a variety of wheat, and is a little chewy in texture.  It is a good source of fiber, protein and iron, as well as some…

Coconut Macaroons

With Valentine’s day right around the corner, thought I’d share something sweet.  These coconut macaroons are delightful and you only need 5 ingredients!
