Fruit platter inspo for entertaining this summer! Want to learn how to assemble? See steps below ⤵️ Tag me in your creations and use #rightbackspatula so I can see your styling! . . Tip 1: Pick fruits that are different shapes, sizes, colors and textures. Tip 2: Start with your biggest piece of fruits and work your way smaller to fill any gaps. 1. Randomly place the pears on your board. I chose not to slice the pears because the brown easily. 2. Cut the top off your pineapple and place it somewhere on your board. This helps adds height to your fruit platter! Pre-slice a couple of pieces of pineapple and scatter them on the board. I like to add toothpicks so people can easily grab pieces. 3. Add a few mandarin oranges. 4. Next up, slice your blood oranges and kiwi. Tip: Place blood oranges on top of wax paper so the juices don’t stain your boards. 5. Add a couple of groups of strawberries. I always group strawberries in 3s. 6. Cut some grape clusters to break up the colors and fill some gaps. 7. Scatter some @wholefoods sunberries around the board. These look like little yellow cherry tomatoes, but they’re sweeter. They’re delish! 8. Lastly, fill any other gaps with some dried fruits, I used apricots. Ta da!!!

Here’s a quick and easy Easter side dish recipe that I can ‘spear’ you of of the details. Prosciutto wrapped asparagus pretty much speaks for itself. If you need the details, don’t worry, I won’t leave you hanging. Recipe below⤵️ . . INGREDIENTS: 1 brunch of asparagus 1 package of prosciutto Olive oil @delallofoods Balsamic vinegar glaze • INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil. 2. Wash and pat asparagus dry. Snap or cut off the tough ends. 3. Wrap 3-4 asparagus spears with strip of prosciutto. I typically cut 1 slice in half (length wise) so I can make 2-3 bundles with one prosciutto slice. 4. Place asparagus bundle on baking sheet and repeat until done. 5. Drizzle with olive oil. I typically use a basting brush to spread it out more evenly. 6. Bake for approx 12min. For a crispier prosciutto leave in the oven for a couple of min longer. 7. Add to a serving platter and drizzle with balsamic glaze! Enjoy!! ***For a more savory flavor you can add a swipe of cream cheese or goat cheese on top of a flat piece of prosciutto and then wrap the bundles. Both ways are delish!🤤

On a seafood diet... I see food and I eat it. Do y’all know how quick and easy it is to make lobster tails? These would be perfect for a date night. Tag your date! ♥️ Pretending @bretteldredge is mine! 😉 • INGREDIENTS: 2 (6oz) lobster tails from @freshthyme Pinch of salt Paprika 2 tablespoons of butter Parsley, chopped + more for garnish Lemons for garnish • INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Place a small grate or steamer insert in the bottom of a pot/skillet. Pour about one inch of water in the bottom of a large pot/skillet. The water should not be touching the grate. Sprinkle a pinch of salt in the water. Ten in heat and bring water to a boil. 2. Sprinkle butterflied lobster tails [instructions at the bottom] with a couple of dashes of paprika. Place lobster tails on grate and cover with lid for 6min. Cooking time varies based on lobster tail ounces. **Do not lift the lid whole cooking!! You also want to make sure you carefully watch so you don’t over cook. 3. While lobster tails are cooking, melt 2 tablespoons of butter and chop parsley. Mix together. 4. Remove lobster tails and brush with butter mixture. Time to eat! 🤗 ———————- How to butterfly a lobster tail: 1. Thaw out tails overnight in refrigerator or soak in cold water bath. 2. Once thawed, cut the tail. (You can tell from my picture where I stopped.) 3. Open the shell by using your thumbs and fingers. Spread the cut top shell apart and loosen it from the meat. 4. Pull up the meat and rest on top of the hard shell. Easier than it looks, huh? 😉

Sharing how to make homemade pumpkin purée for all those decadent Thanksgiving dishes later this week. Trust me, homemade is always better, plus roasting pumpkins makes your house smell amazing! • INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. 2. Cut a pumpkin pie pumpkin (or 2 or 3 or 4) in half. You can freeze pumpkin purée so might as well double up! 3. Scoop out the seeds and place face down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. 4. Bake for about 1 hour. The pumpkin skin will get darker and limber. 5. Flip over and let cool for at least 15 min or you’ll burn yourself while trying to scoop out the pumpkin. 6. Scoop out cooked pumpkin and place in a food processor or blender to purée for 4 min. Voilà! • Store in an air tight container in the fridge for up to a week or freeze for a few months.
If you know me, you know I likely don’t skip a meal. 🤷🏻‍♀️ And I most certainly don’t skip holidays. While some of you have already moved onto Christmas (not judging), I’m still soaking up all the pumpkin I can... and sharing what I make! :) Here’s the fall salad I’ve been eating all week. • SALAD INGREDIENTS: Mixed greens Roasted pumpkin Pomegranate seeds Parmesan or feta cheese @costco salad topper (pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds) • How to roast pumpkin: 1. Preheat oven to 430 degrees. 2. Peel, halve, seed, and cube pumpkin. 3. Lightly coat with olive oil, salt, and pepper. 4. Bake 8min. Remove from oven and toss. Return to oven for another 8-10min. 5. Let cool and then add to salad. • SALAD DRESSING: In a small bowl, mix together 2.5 tablespoons of olive oil, 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar, 1 tablespoon honey, and salt/pepper to taste.

I was hoping to take a better picture of this Buffalo Chicken Quinoa Bowl before sharing, but this got such a positive response on my IG story last night, I'm sharing now. I meal prepped this for 3 lunches this week. 3 serving recipe below ⤵️ • INGREDIENTS: 1 15oz can of low sodium chicken broth 1 cup uncooked Quinoa 1.5lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts (I got thin tenders so they cooked faster) 3/4 cup of Private Selection Buffalo Chicken Dip from @krogerco @pvt_selection Celery, thinly sliced 3 tablespoons of Blue Cheese or Ranch dressing Green Onion for garnish • INSTRUCTIONS: 1. In a saucepan, heat chicken broth and cook Quinoa according to package. 2. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Grill or cook on indoor grill pan about 6-7min each side.

Evenly distribute cooked Quinoa between 3 meal prep containers. 2. Evenly distribute cooked chicken breasts, sliced or cubed. 3. Spoon desired amount of Buffalo chicken dip into each bowl.

If meal prepping, pack celery, dressing, and green onions separately. Heat up for 1-2min and then add toppings.
