I guess you could say I'm a bit of a guacamole snob, but I've never been a fan of store bought guacamole. It's just never as good as fresh homemade guacamole. And why bother when making homemade guac is so easy? I make this simple guacamole recipe at least once a week... We smear it […]

It's been quite awhile since I've owned any true non-stick cookware... We dumped all of our teflon-coated pans about 5 years ago after reading about the dangers of breathing in the toxic fumes they can give off when overheated (and even when not overheated). I've tried ceramic non-stick cookware in the past and been underwhelmed […]

If you make just one recipe for your upcoming Labor Day cookout, it has to be this orzo pasta salad! It's another recipe that I first had on the Walmart trip I took back in June (along with these grilled peaches and grilled potato salad), and I kid you not when I say I went […]
