Gina of Running to the Kitchen is one of my all-time favorite bloggers. Her recipes are inspirational yet approachable and I’ve posted about them here often. She also has a great, sarcastic sense of humor (or at least it seems like it from her writing) which I appreciate.
Since Rylan arrived, many wonderful friends and family have delivered meals. Therefore, my time in the kitchen has, thankfully, been kept to a minimum. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I am doing a ton of “feeding…” but it isn’t for any of the adults in the household. But I was really excited when my friend and colleague Carissa (whose second son is 14 weeks) invited me and another friend and coworker (whose son is approx 8 weeks) to her house for our first official “Three Amigos” playdate and a potluck brunch. Yep, we all had boys back-to-back and have been on maternity leave at the same time. Many thanks to our patient colleagues for dealing with the triple baby arrivals this summer!
Our get together was a blast. Just what I needed. Lots of mom talk and war stories with a wonderful power walk through one of Denver’s prettiest neighborhoods. Then we (because this is how it always goes now) hurriedly ate our delicious potluck-style lunch before our boys melted down in protest of wanting lunch as well. Carissa made a scrumptious dairy-free quiche and Lauren made a super fresh green salad with blueberries and strawberries. I closed out the meal with a dessert by Gina that caught my eye last week – a Peach and Cherry Quinoa Crumble. I managed to take one photo of it before baking but with all the boys crying I completely forgot to take a picture of the finished dish. Click over to Running to the Kitchen for MUCH prettier pictures. That’s why she is the food blogger!
We topped it with dairy free almond milk ice cream since I’m off dairy completely right now (a real pain but it’s helping Rylan tremendously so that is all that matters). I will absolutely be making this again. I imagine any seasonal fruits would taste great with the quinoa/almond flour/coconut oil crumble. Enjoy!
