Black Bean & Sweet Potato Pinwheels

I don’t know how your workplace is, but for me, we are always in the process of coordinating some sort of party/potluck- or at least that’s the way it feels. They’re nice because they break up the work day and give you something to look forward to, but I always feel like I am left… Continue reading Black Bean & Sweet Potato Pinwheels

Spicy Tuna Cakes

Hi folks! I don’t know about where you are, but here in Michigan the weather has been less than lovely. Rainy days have been the norm for the past week. BUMMER! I am not a fan of any form of precipitation. Oh well. The upside to the poor weather? I don’t feel guilty about staying… Continue reading Spicy Tuna Cakes
