Avocado Toast

Share

This is my new favorite breakfast! There’s not much to putting it together, but the combination of olive oil, hearty whole grain bread, half an avocado, salt and pepper makes an incredible treat.

I love a good chopped salad that you can eat as a main course. I adore all of the fresh ingredients and  that the recipes tend to be very forgiving. You can toss in a little more of this or a little less than that without jeopardizing anything. You can even swap ingredients. For example, […]

Guacamole

Share

I love avocados. Never used to like them as a kid, but they’ve really grown on me in the last couple of years. I could make a whole dinner for myself out of guacamole and corn chips, and occasionally I do.

Before last night, I had never made guacamole before, and I’m not sure […]

There is nothing better than fresh corn in the summertime. Fresh corn and heirloom tomatoes are two of my favorite summertime viands. My girlfriend Kathleen sent me this recipe a week or so ago. Man, is it good.

I served this for dinner tonight and everyone who tried it loved it. […]
