Help me in welcoming Adrienne Montgomery, known around here as Chef A, to Mother Nature Network. Chef A formerly worked in corporate America, but she left the world of high rises and corner offices for the world of client's homes and cozy kitchens when she started her personal chef business.

She'll be bringing us cooking lessons via video. Each week in her new web show, she will teach you how to make quick, easy, and healthy meals … so she doesn’t have to come to your house.

First up is the super food quinoa (keen-wah). She's got three helpful videos for this whole grain — one for breakfast, one for dinner. Let's take a look at the lunch episode where she shows us how to make Lunch Quinoa Pilaf.

That looks delicious. Click here to get the printed directions. 

I'll be letting you know each week what Chef A is cooking up for us, and I'll be learning along with you as we watch her cook.
