Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich Josh’s brother is visiting us from California and we are having a great time. Caleb sure loves having his uncle around and I love having another person to feed:) The other day the guys wanted a snack so I whipped up a bowl of guacamole and made homemade baked tortilla chips. The guys were still hungry so I offered to make grilled cheese sandwiches.

Zucchini Noodles with Pesto This dish is a play on pesto spaghetti! I used a spirooli to make thin zucchini noodles and tossed it in a creamy pesto sauce. Pesto is usually made exclusively from pine nuts but holy cow they were really expensive at my local store! so I only managed to use part pine nut and added cashews as their poorer alternative. Preparation time: 20mins (plus standing time for noodles)Serves 2 You’ll need: bacon and cheese egg mcmuffin cups These were simple and yummy. I don’t know about you, but one of my favourite meals of the day is breakfast. I could also eat eggs at any meal, and I know my husband could too (and bacon too, right James?). SCRUMPTIOUS SCONES / Bakers share tips for creating a no-fail batch Something about spring makes us want to set out fresh linens, bake up something dainty and sweet and sit down for afternoon tea. What better way to commemorate springtime celebrations like Mother's Day and wedding showers than with tea and stacks of delicate scones? Well-made scones are a wonderful thing, moist and tender, with buttery crumbs that cling to your chin. "They are fattening, indigestible and quite glorious," writes Jane Garmey in "Great British Cooking" (Random House, 1981). Like biscuits, their American counterpart, scones are as easy as pie for experienced cooks, but can be intimidating to everyone else. Even the scones offered at most Bay Area cafes often are dense, tough and dry, a waste of perfectly good flour and butter, not to mention calories.

Quinoa Salad With Black Beans & Mango April 14, 2010 Quinoa Salad With Black Beans & Mango by IsaChandra Serves 6Total time: 15 minutes* || Active time: 15 minutes This salad is incredibly versatile. Baked Egg Boat recipe Breakfast is my favorite meal. I like to drink iced coffee and watch the cream climb its way down the chunky ice cubes in a dazy before the caffeine hits. I like to order bacon with whatever I’m eating. Baked Zucchini Sticks and Sweet Onion Dip: that bloomin’ zucchini! Today, class, it being late July and all, we’re going to examine our zucchini facts: •Zucchini is always at the end of any A-to-Z food list; •Zucchini and fruitcake are the undeserving targets of many a joke; •The zucchini plant literally grows like a weed, making it absolutely ubiquitous in vegetable gardens across America; •And for that reason, enterprising cooks have discovered ways to turn it into muffins, and cake, and pancakes, and… Baked Zucchini Sticks. You know that onion appetizer that came into bloom back in the late ’80s? Outback Steakhouse claims it invented the “Bloomin’ Onion” back in 1988, and it wasn’t long before quasi-fast food restaurants adopted it as the hottest appetizer since artichoke dip baked in a bread bowl.

Mongolian Beef I LOVE P.F. Changs but it can be a little pricy for what you actually get. I have been making this recipe for YEARS now and I always get rave reviews. Most people who have it say they actually like it MORE than P.F. Changs. Baked Potato Soup Everything you love about a baked potato loaded with cheddar, bacon and chives, in the form of a soup! I've had several requests to make-over this soup (You really like to challenge me, don't you!) I was a little stumped on how I was going to take something as carb rich as potatoes, with added fat like sour cream, cheese and bacon, light! Simple Garden Bruschetta I told you that there would be a mini run of tomato-laden recipes, didn’t I? How can I resist with all these great summer veggies (or fruits, if we want to get technical about the tomato)? I’ve made a few bruschetta recipes here for the blog. I think bruschetta is one of those foods that you can never go wrong with. Hot or cold, it’s great for its versatility in flavor combinations and in presentation.

Baked Eggs in Bread Bowls This was our breakfast Sunday morning. Aren’t they cute? They were very, very good. It’s the whole egg and the toast combo all together in one nice package. Chocolate Quake Cake Maybe this blog should be renamed "Sprinkle Bakes Chocolate Cakes". I've had a serious romance with the confection all year. First there was a very special chocolate cupcake recipe for pyromaniacs, soon after came Chocolate Whiskey Cake, then Chocolate Gâteau on the Half Shell, Nigella's Chocolate-Honey Cake, the proportionally epicPBC4 (as I've come to call it), and last week's post was dedicated to the marriage of chocolate cake and red wine. I may need an intervention, but like most addicts I don't want one. I've tasted many, but this chocolate cake may be my favorite, ever! It is indulgently rich with a generous amount of chocolate icing, and in contrast the cake has a light, moist crumb.

Fry Bread Tacos: Eating America Navajo fry bread tacos are typically made by topping fry bread with ground beef, shredded lettuce and cheddar cheese. In this recipe I’ve topped fry bread with Sonoran-style shredded beef, shredded cabbage, cheddar cheese and a simple tomato salsa, which is a little atypical but all components are prepared traditionally (Sonora is a northwestern state in Mexico and shares its border with Arizona and New Mexico, parts of which belong to the Navajo Nation). I’ve adapted the recipe I found in the book, Foods of the Americas: Native Recipes and Traditions. Check it out if you’re looking for some great recipes and a very interesting read. Fry Bread
