My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

{ Prep Time: 5 mins / Difficulty: Easy / Yields: 2 cups }

2 large ripe avocados
1 garlic clove, finely minced
1 shallot, finely minced
1 can rotel with green chilis (mild or hot)
juice of 1 lemon
1/2-1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
kosher salt & black pepper, to taste
fresh flat leaf parsley, chopped
tortilla chips

1. Halve the avocados, remove the pits and scoop out the flesh with a large spoon. Place in a large bowl.
2. Using a fork or potato masher, smash the avocado flesh until smooth.
3. Add shallot, garlic and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
4. Spoon the mixture into a small serving bowl. Drizzle olive oil over guacamole and top with chopped parsley. Serve immediately.
** Avocados start turning brown rather quickly, so make sure to prepare this dip right before serving.
