Say it with me, Spicy BLT Avocado Toast. Perhaps I should start off by saying that I did not think I liked avocado for the longest time. I know, I know. What type of self-respecting southern Californian does not like avocado? I swear I did not. Boy, I have never been so happy to prove myself wrong.
Roasted Peking Chicken breast is a new recipe to help me in my quest to expand my culinary horizons. When I look for easy, delicious recipes, I cracked open my copy of The All New Good Housekeeping Cookbook by Susan Westmoreland. First off, I still love this cookbook. It was first published on December 31, 2001. My copy is falling apart at the spine. Consequently, I bought a slightly used copy from eBay. Oddly enough, I am still using the tattered copy.
he Special of the Week is Marinated Green Beans. My impartation for this dish comes from Whole Foods Market. In the deli, they sell a similar dish which I absolutely have love! Unfortunately for me, my local Whole Foods isn’t exactly local. Consequently, I decided to give try my hand at making this dish.
