Bacon Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich A guacamole grilled cheese sandwich has been on my to try list for a while now and since I was making the bacon guacamole on the weekend I figured I would just pick up double the ingredients and make both. The basic idea behind this grilled cheese is quite simple and it started out with just adding guacamole to a grilled cheese but with the success of combining salty bacon-y magnificence with cool and creamy guacamole I could not resist adding a few slices of bacon to the sandwich. I also had some leftover corn tortilla chips from dipping on the weekend so I decided to crumble a few of them and add them to the sandwich for texture. Like all grilled cheese sandwiches this one is pretty easy to make though you want to try to remember to pull the guacamole out of the fridge early so that it can come up to room temperature before adding it to the sandwich. Does this grilled cheese sandwich look good? Bacon Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich Servings: makes 1 sandwich Printable Recipe Directions

DansGuardian - Access Denied Share this image Share It Pin It For someone who eats marshmallows as regularly as I do, I'm not sure how I managed to go so long without making them from scratch. It's safe to assume that most things are improved drastically when made at home (examples 1, 2 and 3), but I didn't realize how you could improve on something already so perfect.

salted brown butter crispy treats As it turns out, the last days of October don’t awaken in me a desire to fly around on my broom, don a “sexy” nurse/maid/fireman outfit or even gorge myself on candy. Nope, according to a quick glance at my archives, apparently when Halloween approaches all I can think about is reinterpreting Rice Krispie Treats. Unfortunately, I don’t seem to choose my recipes very well. But these, these I dare say are the best thing to happen to Rice Krispies Treats since Mildred Day of the home economics department at the Kellogg Company thought to apply marshmallows and melted butter to the puffed rice cereal in 1928. Even better, they’re so freaking easy to make, only five extra minutes, tops, more than the original which is incredibly convenient if you are finding yourself a little pressed for time these days.

Make a Tim Tam Cake Hiya! After all the pretty Easter treats I shared with you last week, I’m now giving you a lumpy brown cake. But this is no ordinary chocolate cake. Does it look familiar to you? So as I was saying, this is no ordinary chocolate cake. Now I realise my outer layer of chocolate is a bit darker than an original Tim Tam, so it looks more like a dark Tim Tam. Tim Tam Cake (Chocolate sponge recipe from Gourmet Traveller , serves 10) NOTE: To beginner bakers, if you are unfamiliar with sponge recipes you might want to read up on some tips on how to make a successful sponge cake before starting. For the cake filling: 100g butter, removed from the fridge 30 minutes before starting 150g chocolate, melted (I used semi-sweet, you can also use milk) 3 cups icing sugar, sifted 1 tbsp milk Optional: 1 packet of Tim Tam biscuits (If you wanted to mix things up a bit so it’s not just all chocolate, you could mix a cup of raspberries into this icing, or maybe use mint chocolate instead?)

Blog » BexLife I lost both of my parents in 2013. My father lost his battle with cancer on April 19, and my mother passed on November 21, ten days after suffering a sudden, massive stroke. If losing my father threw me off balance, my mother’s death finished the job and knocked me right over the edge. The holidays that followed her passing were a rushed, hazy mishmash of attempts at keeping-with-tradition, forced smiles, and lots and lots of less-than-ideal eating and exercise habits. What I mean by “less-than-ideal” is that I ate a lot of crap-tastic food and engaged in absolutely no exercise. “Does this serve me and my purpose?” I had forgotten to ask. My roots had seemingly disappeared, and I was floating – disconnected like a helium balloon caught up in a directionless wind. I forgot my purpose. You may wonder why I’m bringing this up right now. Because today, I ate cake. I’m back on the saddle, back to my mantra, and back to my practice of being of service to myself so that I may serve others. 1. 2.
