Five Little Things I loved the week of February 28, 2020: quinoa, an unlikely TikTok cooking star, k-pop and more!

Five Little Things

Happy Friday, everyone! I know, it’s been quite a while. My list of Five Little Things grows continually, but to be honest with you, between working on taxes, projects, and life in general, I haven’t been able to share them with you! I know that the last few weeks have been such challenge when it comes to the news, so I’ve been keen to find more things to make us smile. I hope this brings a little sunshine to your day.

Here are Five Little Things I loved this week:

1. Quinoa

Quinoa Crusted Eggplant Parmesan

I’ve been on such a quinoa kick lately – I just love how this versatile and nutritious seed cooks so quickly and can easily be incorporated in so many dishes. I reshot my Quinoa Crusted Eggplant Parmigiana and have another quinoa dish to serve you the first week in March, so stay tuned for that. I also love throwing quinoa in my Quinoa Stuffed Pork TenderloinChocolate Banana Quinoa Muffins, and Zucchini Banana Brownies!

2. Cooking with Steve

How cool is this 81-year old for embracing TikTok and doing so well with his cooking videos? Cooking may be his thing, but I loved his little words of wisdom in this post:

3. Cookbook Treasures

I love that dozens of historic Mexican cookbooks are now available online!

4. Move Over Lady Gaga

When Charlott Awbery found herself singing “Shallow” in a London tube station, who knew her finishing the lyrics would lead to viral fame? I’m so glad it did. She has a gorgeous voice and here we get to hear her sing the entire song.

5. BTS Carpool Karaoke

I admit, I don’t know much about the K-pop band BTS, but any time I catch the on tv, I can’t help but bop along! Their carpool karaoke with James Corden put a big smile on my face!

Have a wonderful weekend!!
