Thanks for coming to my kitchen!

Most of my chef training came from the training my family has given me as I have learned to cook for some picky eaters and a couple of bottomless pits! It has been a fun journey and I want to share my experiences with you.
My daughter and I own a catering business and have cooked so many delicious things for our clients. Here I am sharing some of our best loved foods - at home and at catering events.
I like to keep things simple, using everyday food but I am a BIG fan of spice! I love hot and spicy stuff!
(Which is why I stay married to my wonderful hubby! LOL)
Try my recipes and let me know how it turns out!
And if you have a moment, check out our catering site to see what we do.

Happy Cooking!

Avocado Taco

Avocado Taco

I'm not sure if this was actually a "thing" before I "invented" it, but I came up with the idea myself, so I like to think it is my original recipe (although I'm sure I'm not the first - just don't tell me any different, okay?)

Now that I am going meatless, I have discovered that the next best thing to bacon is avocado. It's like the vegetarian's bacon. What can't you do with it?

So I made up this sandwich/taco so I could eat something almost as good as a real taco. And it is pretty tasty, too.


Avocado Taco

1 8" flour tortilla (I get southwest flavored ones from the local grocer!)
1/3 to 1/2 avocado, smashed
salt, garlic salt or seasoning salt to taste
2 iceberg or romaine lettuce leaves
Sprouts (I used a spicy mix of radish, broccoli and alfalfa, homegrown)
1 Tbl Pink Vinaigrette dressing (recipe on here)

Spread the avocado across half the tortilla. Place the vegetables and pour a little dressing.
You can add a little cilantro, if you like, or some salsa. Dress it up however you want!
You can also add tomato, cucumber, zucchini, olives, corn, onions or jalapeƱos. Your imagination and taste buds can really go wild!
