Hey, remember when Sugarlaws was a food blog? 

Ha ha, that was a joke.  Neither do I!  That was a long time ago!

The fact is, I’ve been so busy for the past year or two that cooking has really fallen to the wayside.  I have a few tried and true staples that I make for dinner during the week and, honestly, we order a fair amount of takeout.  I can’t help it — pizza is one of my favorite foods on this earth, and when I get home from a long day and still have 57 emails to respond to, the last thing I can think about is shopping for ingredients, making up a new recipe and cleaning everything up afterwards!  I’m hoping to carve out more time for some special dinners this year, as soon as my schedule lets up a little bit!

But every once in a while, usually on the weekends, I still get the urge to make something new and delicious.  This quinoa salad was a product of me wandering the aisles of our grocery store, trying to think of healthy ingredients that would all taste great together.  Feta cheese, sundried tomatoes, and artichoke hearts?  Maybe I can still cook after all.  (Yum.)
