A Healthier Version of Egg Salad

Sprittibee's Egg Salad

I have always loved egg salad. I used to go in and request it at Jason’s Deli even though it wasn’t on the menu and they would sometimes make it for me, depending on the location. Eggs and I have had a rocky relationship in the past, and I realized after learning more about eating […]

Chipotle-Sesame Beef Tacos with Cotija, Avocado and Cilantro

El Picosito Copycat

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post and I’m proud to be working with the Beef Checkoff.

I figured most everyone was doing the same thing, so I never thought about sharing my “recipe” for tacos. But who knows… maybe there’s someone […]
