Avocado Fries

Avocado Fries
Oh dear. I never should have done this. This may be one of my biggest mistakes all year. Can’t take it back now. So we’re totally enjoying our grilled avocados, but my husband innocently asks “What else can you do with avocados?” And so my daughter tweets this recipe, and I'm laying all the blame on them.

Go ahead, take a shot of salad dressing. I got my first taste of this salad dressing when a dear friend brought it over with a meal she had made for my crew right after Nola was born. From the moment the heavenly concoction hit my lips, I wanted to drink it right out of it’s re-purposed glass bottle. Since asking begging her for the recipe, I’ve probably made it weekly.

Zesty Lime Shrimp and Avocado Salad Zesty lime juice and cilantro are the key ingredients to creating this light and refreshing salad, no heavy mayonnaise to weigh it down.

This will be a huge hit at your Cinco de Mayo fiesta or summer bash! Serve this as is for an appetizer, or over lettuce o tostadas for a lunch or light meal.

Flour Tortillas When I was growing up in South Texas we had this neighbor who would, on Saturday afternoons, make her tortillas for the week. Believe me, I made friends with her children so I could make myself available for tortilla day. I think she enjoyed my enthusiasm and always had a few extra tortillas for me to take home. They were sublime! My family would fight over them, and no matter how many she sent home with me they were always gone before dinner.

Broccoli and White Cheddar Mac & Cheese « The Craving Chronicles Mac & cheese. Oh how I love mac & cheese. It’s one of my favorite foods on the planet (besides chocolate). Whenever it’s cold outside or I need some comfort or I’m hungry or it’s a day that ends in ‘y’, I turn to mac & cheese. I’ve had to impose mac & cheese limits on myself to keep from eating it every day of the week. Jalapeno Poppers, Test #1 For the past a few year, I have tried to plan for a trip to visit, a place that I've ever been, at least once a year. I love to experience new things, getting new inspirations for life, by just being in a different city or country. Next week, my parents and I are visiting Hong Kong and Beijing for 2 weeks. Even thought I have been to both places before, I am still looking forward to go there again. For HK, I have visited so many times. Eating is the main activity that we do when we get there.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles Oh. My. God. If you could take perfection, roll it in a ball, and dip it chocolate, this would be it. I’m not joking here folks. I’d strongly advise you to put down the mouse and get your butt to the kitchen, stat. How to Stop an Avocado Going Brown Updated April 03, 2015.

Greek Orzo Pasta Salad If you saw Ole’s Greek burger post, you may have been left wondering what kind of summer salad you’d pair that with. (I know you were.) It’s not like a regular, ol’ creamy coleslaw would do the trick there.

Lasagna Soup Lasagna Soup This Lasagna Soup is truly like lasagna in a bowl. The flavors are lovely. And the ooey gooey cheesy concoction at the bottom of the bowl is YUM! With spring officially arriving last weekend, this house could pretty much assume that soup would be a rarity for a few months. I’m just not the kind to put a hot pot on the stove during the spring and summer, unless we have some unseasonably cool weather.
