Panko Mozzarella Sticks!

Please don’t ask me how I know that; I just do. I remember vividly reading a recipe that contained panko bread crumbs, and I remember vividly that I was nursing my second baby, and I remember vividly that I was hormonal and desperate, and the next thing I knew I was ordering panko bread crumbs from some market in Chelsea that the magazine recommended. On the phone, of course, because although I had a computer at the time, I certainly wouldn’t have been cool enough to use it to order panko bread crumbs. Plus, I was nursing. Not enough hands.

Perfect Guacamole Recipe

Remove seed. Score the inside of the avocado with a blunt knife and scoop out the flesh with a spoon. (See How to Cut and Peel an Avocado.) Place in a bowl. 2 Mash with a fork: Using a fork, roughly mash the avocado. 3 Add salt, lime juice, and the rest: Sprinkle with salt and lime (or lemon) juice. Add the chopped onion, cilantro, black pepper, and chiles. Remember that much of this is done to taste because of the variability in the fresh ingredients. 4 Cover with plastic and chill to store: Place plastic wrap on the surface of the guacamole cover it and to prevent air reaching it. Chilling tomatoes hurts their flavor, so if you want to add chopped tomato to your guacamole, add it just before serving.
