Since starting my website, I have made a couple recipes that I thought were NOT worthy to post on a public page. lol. But, I'm not 100% sure if they is just my opinion of how I liked it, or not. Or, if I really thought that it would be a consensus among the public, as well.
The last dish was a green bean baked medley casserole-type dish. I called it all that because if I just put green bean casserole, then immediately the mind goes to ALL the same recipes out there for the holiday dish. This was not one of those! It had a good, fresh market ingredients, except one thing I added- not your average fresh parsley. It was more coarse and had a stronger bite to it, than what you expect from parsley. Well, I always try something before I "knock it".
One other one was a Mexican style quinoa dish. I made it a loafy casserole style. Wasn't completely happy with the final result. Wanted it to be more firm and together- like a loaf. It seemed more of a dip. So, I added breadcrumbs and and egg, along with some added seasoning. Mixed it up and baked again at 450 for 20 minutes. Let it sit. Was a bit better, but I haven't decided it was post-worthy. People like it. Used it for a taco salad-on top of chips, added to a tortilla wrap and still used it as a dip. I like recipes that get different uses for one dish. But, yet to deem this post-worthy.
I can't tell you the last time I actually added salt to any of my food. Even before I was very conscience about it, I don't think I ever thought or decided that something that I am eating needed more salt.
I am a pepper and garlic chick! Ever since I started cooking-it-up more and trying new recipes, whenever the recipe called for salt- I would add more pepper and garlic instead.
Now, don't get me wrong, I am a chip snacker and well, on store bought ones, how can you skip the salt? And I have a few select favs: jalopeno flavored chips, pita chips (though I try to make them more than buy them)........
But, if someone to ask is I needed salt- the answer will always be no.
For my first food blog post, I am so happy that it is a post on one of my favorite things!.....Avocados!!!!
I had the afternoon off and decided to dedicate it to avocados. lol
Made guacamole! Used it as a mask! Added it to my black bean taco!
Start off by making some homemade guacamole!
While I baked my large tortilla to make my taco, I made an avocado mask. Just mash avocado (used a tablespoon- more than enough) and mixed it with honey. Mixed it well. Spread it on my face. Had extra, so I continued to add more to my face (with a bit of a massage). With the extra, spread it on my neck and chest. I could feel it moisturizing while on me! Face felt so smooth and breathable (the after picture)! Oh, I left it on for as long as I wanted to (about a half hour).
My beautifully large taco! What's in it?
Enjoyed my avocado day! But, now thinking I could've use the extra mask spread for my feet!
