Quick And Easy Recipes From The Unlikeliest Of Chefs

Quick and Easy Recipes from Jane McGarry and Heidi Dillon
as seen of Good Morning Texas

I love food. Especially flavorful food that packs a punch. But that doesn't always lead to the healthiest of choices. I joined my #BFFs Jane McGarry and Heidi Dillon on Good Morning Texas today to watch them prepare their favorite quick-and-easy recipe that not tastes amazing but packs a powerful healthy punch. I helped out with colorful commentary and to taste test. We all have our talents.

Enjoy! - OSC
