Skinny Pear Crisp

I have never been more excited to welcome a new year.  I am super pumped and motivated to reach all my 2013 goals, (perhaps because I completed my 2012 resolutions successfully!) and so far, the first week has not disappointed me.

One of my goals for this year is to be a better eater.  Though I could leave it loosely defined, I want to be able to measure how I am doing.  For me, better eating means less sugar and bad fat (easing up my love affair with cheese and ice cream!!!!), more veggies, and less processed or “fake” food.  Did you make any foodie resolutions?  I’d love to hear about them!!

Avocado Salad

I was gifted an avocado this week!  What a great gift!  Avocados aren’t exactly winter food, but when you live somewhere among little Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, and Columbia {& Ecuador & Honduras & Mexico} like I do, you know that avocados are a year-round staple.  This avocado was off a backyard tree that has it’s season in winter!  I was not disappointed with it’s texture or flavor at all.

My sweet husband took me to a Dominican restaurant recently and I fell in love with the avocado salad there.  With this lovely avocado I knew immediately that I would try to replicate it.  Hubby was so delighted when he saw this in our kitchen!

Pioneer Woman’s Crash Hot Potatoes

Usually, I like to make recipes my own, but sometimes you just stumble upon one that doesn’t need any alterations.  This simple recipe found on the Pioneer Woman’s site is delicious and perfect!  It is a great side or even snack (since my husband and I grazed on them all day as I was putting this post together!)

I had two bags of tiny enchanted rose potatoes since they were BOGO at Publix recently.  I knew I wanted something simple and this recipe fit that criteria.
