Avocado and Egg Pizzette

In a typical weekend breakfast scramble (pun sort of intended) to throw an egg on top of something delicious, I saw that I had all the ingredients for guacamole, but didn’t just want to eat eggs with a side of guac. Enter… avocado pizzette. It not only sounds fancy, but looks more presentable as well. … Continue reading

Causa

Causa is a unique Peruvian dish made of potatoes (shocker, I know) that are mashed and seasoned with key lime, onion, chili, and oil.  The mashed potatoes are then layered with a variety of stuffings, such as avocado, chicken, canned tuna, or shellfish.  This potato salad “cake” is usually served cold.  Causa is very popular … Continue reading

Mango Arugula and Avocado Salad

Tori actually found and suggested this recipe and we incorporated it into our dinner feast to really maximize the healthy veggie factor of our meal. The salad is pretty simple but I think the combination of mango and avocado is severely underestimated. Jen and I actually made Mango Pomegranate Guacamole before and it was a … Continue reading

Lime Quinoa Cilantro Chickpea Salad

This salad is definitely a recipe both Jen and I have had pinned on our food boards for a while, and I finally committed to it to try it. I saw a few versions of the salad and the one I was inspired by most was from the Diva Dish. I loved the interplay of … Continue reading

Palta Reina

Palta Reina was one of the first dishes Jen and I tried once we crossed the Andes into Chile last year. After eating some ridiculously delicious cows and lamb in Argentina, Chilean cuisine was a nice change of scene. Many of the dishes were still on the heavier side (Chileans LOVE their mayo), but we … Continue reading

California Eggs Benedict

For President’s Day Weekend, I decided to surprise my parents with a last-minute trip home.  I flew in late Friday night and spent the night with my sister, who had helped ensure that my living-the-retired-life parents would be home that weekend.  We spent the night plotting our breakfast surprise for the next morning whilst snacking … Continue reading

Watercress, Avocado and Orange Salad

I came across this salad recipe in an issue of the Food Network Magazine and thought it sounded amazing.  The refreshing, fruity flavors came together quite well and it was super quick and easy to make.  I especially loved the homemade citrus dressing with orange juice lime, honey, and dijon mustard.  For other salad dressing … Continue reading

Mango Pomegranate Guacamole

Natalya and I are obsessed with guacamole.  Pretty much anytime we are craving a snack, we will make guacamole.  Whenever we have people over, we make guacamole.  When we go to a friend’s house and we ask if we should bring anything, a typical response is: guacamole.  For a long time we have always made … Continue reading

Guacamole

My flatmate and I are addicted to guacamole.  It is always our go-to snack, whether it is while we are lazying around on an weekend afternoon or stumbling in at 2am and looking to satisfy the munchies.  And for some reason, we are always motivated to make it ourselves – I don’t think I have … Continue reading
