Slow Cooker Pizza Soup Even though we moved the clock forward for spring, it's still so cold in the North East. In fact, they are forecasting more snow.

This meatball recipe uses leftover cooked quinoa because gluten free, dairy free, soy free, nut free and peanut free bread crumbs are not easy to find.
