In a Pickle

In a Pickle
There is a restaurant in Mississippi that has the best fried catfish EVER! It is called Cuevas's Fish House and it is in the middle of nowhere in Kiln, MS. I could be wrong, but I am pretty sure the only claim to fame that Kiln can get credit for is Cuevas's. There were several patrons of the Fish House that got their money's worth - I could look around and tell. **Editor's Notes: Cuevas's Fish House is in Picayune, MS - NOT Kiln.

Lemon Monkey Bread | Bakerlady Every monkey bread recipe I’ve ever seen is made with butter and brown sugar resulting in a caramel covered pull apart bread. This recipe intrigued me because of its main ingredient. Lemon. Lemon? Yes indeed. It is a bright fresh citrus bread drizzled with butter, lemony sugar and a sweet glaze. This monkey bread is sweet and tart, moist and warm, crusty and soft all together. The base for this sweet treat is Rhodes Dinner Rolls. Then, cut in half and place in a greased (I used butter) baking dish. Drizzle with melted butter. Then we’re going to zest a lemon. And mix that zest with some regular granulated sugar. Sprinkle half the lemon sugar over the rolls and allow to rise until double. When all puffed up nicely, sprinkle the other half of your lemon sugar on top of the rolls and then bake. Remove from the oven when nice and golden, slide out of the pan onto your serving platter and drizzle with a little lemon glaze. Pull apart and enjoy! Lemon Monkey Bread (from Creations by Kara) 1.

Before I go into the method for cooking these bad boys, I forgot to post pictures of the cutest little man in the world. Rider Matz! Ok now, on to the avocado fries! Slice 'em up! Start with the flour, then the egg, and lastly, the panko. I sprayed these with olive oil (non-stick spray would also work), so they would brown evenly.

Blueberry Brain Booster Smoothie Emerging research suggests that compounds in blueberries known as flavonoids may improve memory, learning and general cognitive function, including reasoning skills, decision making, verbal comprehension and numerical ability. People who drank a blueberry smoothie in the morning were better at concentrating later in the day. A study at Surrey University in Guildford found just this. Two weeks later, the volunteers performed the same experiment, however they drank a "control" smoothie without any blueberries (but contained the same amount of sugar and calories). Flavonoids in berries activate an enzyme in the body called Enos which increases the flow of blood and oxygen to the brain. If you want an amazing blender, I highly suggest you purchase a vitamix! - 1 cup organic* blueberries - 1 ripe banana - 1 cup almond milk, or young thai coconut water, or regular water (whichever is on hand) - 1 cup leafy greens of your choice (click HERE for a list of easy-to-use greens!)
