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!

Parmesan Crisps

It is time for a confession.  I looooove Parmesan cheese!  I also frequent Nordstrom’s Bistro and love the huge triangle of crisp Parmesan they artistically place atop their Caesar salad.  So, I set out to make them!  Surprisingly, it is so easy to make yourself!

Parm Cheese for a yummy recipe from Amanda's ApronTruly- that’s it! That’s all it takes! Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Shred the Parmesan until you have the desired amount for the number of crisps you would like to make.  Depending on your size and shape of the crisp, it will take about 2 Tablespoons of cheese per crisp.
