  • Cauliflower Al Pastor Quesadillas with Lime Smashed Avocado...and grilled pineapple too. Load it up, you know? This one is best for when you’re craving hearty Mexican, but want to keep things on the healthier too. It's a little cheesy, a touch smoky, stuffed with spicy chipotle cauliflower, pineapple, and finished with smashed avocado. My ideal meal anytime of the day. SO GOOD. Grab the recipe link in my profile. PS. I'm very ready for Cinco de Mayo. Anyone else? The margarita recipe is coming this weekend 🌺 #eatingfortheinsta  #f52grams #buzzfeast  #eeeeeats #easyrecipes #feedfeed
  • Finding inspiration to create new and exciting recipes each day can sometime have its struggles. I flew to South Korea last year to watch my bother compete at the Olympics…giving me plenty of inspiration to create new recipes like this Stir Fried Korean Beef and Toasted Sesame Noodle recipe! As a food influencer it’s the travel and memories that keep me creative and since I started using my Wells Fargo Propel® card last year I’ve earned 3X points on all of my trips.Traveling is my favorite way to keep the inspiration flowing and with the points I’ve earned with my Propel card I plan on doing a lot more trips this year! You can find the recipe for the Korean beef on HBH - link in profile.  #ad #LifewithPropel
  • Roasted Lemon Artichoke and Browned Butter Pasta. Sometimes I worry I share too much pasta, but really, is there such a thing? Ah no, there is no such thing as too much pasta. This one is a new springtime favorite that is super easy and so good --> roasted artichokes, fresh herbs, buttery walnuts, and a little bit of burrata cheese too. Best part? All you need is pantry staples, fresh herbs and 30 minutes. Pretty much perfect. Shared the recipe on HBH - link in profile. #buzzfeast #eatingfortheinsta #eeeeeats #instayum #pasta #easyrecipes
  • Blueberry Swirl Coffee Cake Muffins. Bursting with blueberries and better than the bakery. It's true. When it comes to blueberry muffins, I take them pretty seriously. Mine need to be extra moist, filled with plenty of real blueberries AND double the streusel. The game changer here though? Using both fresh blueberries and blueberry jam for a muffin that’s literally bursting with blueberries. Beyond good and perfect any day and anytime of the of the week.
