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!

My Birthday Eats!

November 16, 2016

Five years ago, I would have celebrated my birthday with balloons, confetti, and pin-the-donkey. My parents would have ordered a custom made birthday cake, and I would have invited all sorts of people to a big, PINK girly party. Then, we’d sing happy birthday and I’d get all pink and embarrassed. And we can’t forget the kids not wanting to go home after hours of fun and games.

Now, my birthday is super low-key. It’s a day that I get to relax and get pampered by family and friends, which I can’t deny, is pretty cool. My parents and I will go to a place like Nothing Bundt Cakes and get a small birthday cake, go birthday shopping, and of course, make a ton of food. I’m that one person who wants to make my own meals on my birthday, because it’s an excuse to make some of my favorite foods that my parents don’t always enjoy. I know, it’s kind of weird, but for some reason baking and cooking makes me really happy.

13 going onto 14. Here we go.
