© Jerry James Stone via iPhone Guacamole is one of my favorite things. I admit, I have eaten tacos made only of guacamole and a tortilla. While I don't stray from my favorite guacamole recipe often, this one has a nice smokiness to it that's a great fit for fajitas or anything grilled. Grilled Avocado Guacamole
Eating out is becoming a more and more popular phenomenon. With fast food taking only minutes out of a day and costing a few dollars, it can be convenient. Likewise, fine dining is also on the rise and can put a considerably larger dent in your wallet. But unless you were a master chef with a keen sense of taste, these recipes were lost to you.
in college i was a waitress and bartender at The Loring Bar & Cafe in Minneapolis. it is where i met alex, so it will always hold a very special place in my heart. it was a really great place to work - cool co-workers, great customers and excellent food. the one thing that we were known for was artichoke dip. i can't tell you how many times i ate that for dinner. it was incredible but since The Loring closed no other artichoke dip has even came close to replacing it. i have tried several recipes for artichoke dip that really sucked. too dry - to heavy - not enough flavor - i have covered them all. but this recipe is the last artichoke dip recipe i will ever need. it is similar to the Loring recipe - dare i say - it might be even better.

I went to see tUnE-yArDs on Monday night with some friends, and as always we wanted to cook a meal that somehow related to the show we were heading to. Sometimes this is hard to do, but other times it seems to come naturally. Finding culinary inspiration in Merrill's lyrics seemed like it would be tough, but my sister knew what she wanted to make without hesitation.

If you ever want me to like you, just make me a light, fluffy stack of pancakes. I’ll blush, I’ll smile a lot, I might propose–it’ll be weird and cute. Promise.

The title: When French Toast Met Pancakes…and Fell In Love totally made me giddy with butterflies in my stomach.

Marinated Cucumber Salad Marinated Cucumber Salad This is my favorite summer salad. It’s the perfect side dish for summer barbecues and potlucks. My mom use to make this every year. We always had a large garden full of fresh cucumbers, and this was always our favorite way to enjoy them. This salad is so simple, and can be easily dressed up by adding more herbs and spices, or simplifying it.
I can say this is the best macaroni and cheese recipe ever because it's not really my recipe. I tweaked it a tiny bit - basically made it even more fattening - but otherwise, it's someone else's. It's from someone named Bev, who posted her recipe on Recipezaar and to whom I am eternally grateful.

Homemade Soft Pretzel Bites On Fridays, I teach cooking classes to two kids in our neighborhood. They are pretty knowledgeable-so my job is easy:) I think it is fantastic that they want to learn how to cook at such a young age-they are in the 3rd and 4th grade. Since we don’t have any kiddos yet, I am glad I get to work with these kids. We have a great time in the kitchen.
Sesame Chicken I have whined and complained before about my plight of living without Chinese takeout. Well this is how I cope. Sesame Chicken is my favorite on the all you can eat buffet, well along with the Crab Rangoon. This is a recipe that I adapted from one my sister-in-law gave me. The secret is definitely in the sauce here.

I made tiny gingerbread houses that are meant to be perched on the edge of a mug of hot chocolate. I had been thinking about those sugar cubes that hook on the rim of a teacup earlier this month, and I was also thinking about 3-D cookies and how they fit together and figured it would be pretty neat to make cookies that hang on the edge of a mug. I thought I was being so brilliant but it only took a few seconds to discover that a flat cookie on the edge of a mug has already been done. So I started wondering what else I could do. At the time I was making a bunch of gingerbread recipes trying to find one that would hold up for my partridge in a pear tree cookie, so a gingerbread house was on my mind.
