My sister in law Shany is my inspiration for all things fit and healthy. When I want ideas for a delicious salad she is the gal I will call. That’s not to say she doesn’t enjoy a sweet treat every once in awhile. During one of our healthy food chats she mentioned the idea of cake in a jar and the sugar junkie in me could not wait to give it a try! Shany, let’s enjoy our quinoa veggie salad then finish it up with a bite (or three!) of this!

lemon zest from two lemons
