Classic Tableside Guacamole

May 3, 2017

It’s hard to believe that May is already here… like whaaaat?? Where did April go? I feel like I’ve said this at the end of every month, but 2017 is already moving so fast. Before we know it, summer will be here and I’ll be sitting outside, in 100 degree weather, eating a big slice of bright red watermelon. I can’t wait! The first “official” day of summer is sometime in June, but here in Texas it’s going to feel like it a whole lot sooner. But first, before I get ahead of myself, we have to make it through May. Obviously because Cinco de Mayo is in a couple days, it’s only fitting that I share my classic tableside guacamole recipe with y’all!

One of my all-time favorite restaurants, Mi Dia From Scratch, serves this phenomenal tableside guac. They add in all of the essential ingredients needed to make basic guacamole (onions, avocadoes, tomatoes, etc.), but they throw in sundried tomatoes, bacon, and a whole bunch of other genius add-ins. Although I didn’t add anything fancy this particular batch, I listed them in the recipe below. Feel free to give them a try!

Strawberry Blueberry Smoothie

March 7, 2017

Happy Tuesday! I’d just like to point out how excited I am that we’re in the last couple days until spring break arrives. Also, I am just so happy that warmer weather is on it’s way, and I’ll have a break from school! Y’all can probably tell I’ve been loving blueberries lately, even though they’re not in season, and I’ve been putting them in almost everything I’ve been making, including this strawberry blueberry smoothie.

Smoothies are honestly life savers. I can just pop the ingredients in my NutriBullet and put the container in the fridge, and it’ll be ready for the next day. Or, I’ll just save it for when I come home from school and I’ll have a nice, refreshing drink for me to sip on while I watch Netflix (I’ve been loving Grey’s Anatomy) or do my homework.

This one that I’ve thrown together for y’all today is super adjustable – you could substitute coconut milk for any other liquid (orange juice, almond milk, regular milk, etc.), or replace the strawberries with frozen bananas.

I hope y’all enjoy this recipe!
