Instagram is at the top of the list of daily enjoyments for me.  When I first started using Instagram I was looking for inspiration and motivation for the kitchen.  99.9% of my pictures are of meals I have created.  The reason for this is to showcase that making delicious and healthy meals does not take a Culinary Institute Of America trained chef, nor does it take a lot of fancy ingredients.  I like to make my meals simple and tasty, thus the hashtags #KeepItSimple and #KeepItTasty.  No reason to cloud the flavor of the ingredients in you...
