Quinoa Side Dish

Rating: 4.5 stars 715
Quinoa is a great alternative to rice — it's lighter, and cooks in about half the time.

Pineapple Fried Quinoa

Rating: 4.5 stars 59
Like pineapple fried rice, but with the ancient grain quinoa. Simple to make and bursting with Asian flavors! Always nice with fresh pineapple, but canned or frozen work well, too.

Artichoke Mashed Potatoes

Smoky Four Cheese Macaroni Bake

Rating: 4.5 stars 210
This rich macaroni combines the savory flavors of Swiss, Monterey Jack, sharp Cheddar, and Parmesan cheeses along with sauteed garlic and onion to make a creamy sauce to die for. Add a little liquid smoke for a, well, smoky taste.

Bramboracky (Czech Savory Potato Pancakes)

Rating: 4.5 stars 26
Bramboracky (bram-bor-atch-key) are traditional pan-fried potato pancakes best accompanied by beer. This is a recipe that my Czech boyfriend and I have fun with often. Potato pancakes are commonly associated with traditional Czech, Ukrainian, Yiddish, German, Hungarian and Polish cuisines, although other cuisines (including those of India and Korea) also have similar potato pancakes.
