Savory Quinoa Muffins

Early morning breakfasts at the Red Dog Coffee and Café in our hometown have become a comfortable happenstance on those mornings when we’re just not up to doing it ourselves. We call these days, walking breakfasts and, living in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains we’re afforded a lot of outdoor time and we spend a […]
