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.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a pound homemade smoked cheddar cheese. I have experimented in the past with smoked flavored cheese but never, the real deal.
