I can't believe my nephew Neal is one! I took a few pics at the party and these were some favorites. What a handsome boy!

2 2/3 cup water
1 small Golden delicious apple cored and cut into chunks (I used a large pear & loved it!)
1/4 dried cranberries
1/2 cup pecans
1/2 low fat milk (plus more for serving)
2 tablespoons of honey (plus more for serving)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 teaspoons butter (I didn't add this and it was still tasty)
Rinse quinoa and put in saucepan with water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Add apple/pear chunks and cranberries and continue to cook until the water is absorbed (about 10 minutes).
Meanwhile, toast the pecans in a dry skillets over med-high heat until fragrant (about 2 minutes). When quinoa is cooked add milk, honey and cinnamon. Cook until milk is heated through (about 1 minute). Serve with milk, honey, toasted pecans... and adding blueberries was delicious.
