I know I’m ridiculously late with this post, but I’ve had it sitting in my drafts for the longest time and there’s only so long I can post a round-up of my July instagrams. So before September rolls round, here are some of my July instagram highlights.

Quesadillas con Guacamole | Video Recipe

Quesadillas con Quacamole | Health Inspirations

I’m so excited about this video which, for a change, includes two recipes. To be honest, the recipes really aren’t complicated to make or in any way new {let’s be real, we’ve all made guacamole before}, but I can assure you that the combination of the quesadillas and the guacamole will be life-changing. Last year, one of my Mexican friends gave me a recipe for authentic guacamole  and I have made it at every single dinner party or get-together ever since. It’s an absolute crowd-pleaser and you will have people begging for more! Since then, I have been raving about this guacamole on several occasions, so when he offered to help me film this video, I really couldn’t say no.

The icing on the cake is the quesadillas, corn tortillas oozing with cheese and chorizo, which we served alongside the guacamole. As you’ll see in the video we also made frijoles negros, which truthfully look far from appetizing. But don’t let that stop you from picking up a can the next time you’re at the Mexican supermarket.

So without further ado, here’s the video {watch till the end for some bloopers} and find the recipe below! Enjoy!

Birthday Cake 1

If there’s one person who deserves a whole post dedicated to them, it’s my mom. As is the case for pretty much every mother out there, she is a multitasker extraordinaire, who really knows how to juggle three things at once. I can’t even imagine what it’s like to raise four children. Knowing how disobedient my siblings {and in very rare case, I} can be now that we are grown up, I don’t even want to know what it was like when were younger.

Birthday Cake 2

Mom, you are most certainly the glue that holds our family together. You’ve created such a beautiful home that is always a pleasure to come back to. You’ve supported us with everything we’ve done and have never questioned a decision we have made. You always believe in our ability to achieve what we dream of becoming and the positivity that you exude, makes it easier to believe in ourselves. Even though you deserve to have the weekends off to relax, you still work around the clock when we come home to make sure we are happy.

I don’t think there’s any way that we could ever make it up to you, because you are the most special and caring person I know. We are so lucky to have you as our mom!

Lots of love, hugs and kisses from the whole family.

P.S. I hope you like your birthday cake, especially the 1:1 ratio of crust to filling!

We are halfway through July which means it’s time to discuss our summer wish list.
