Finally, The Best Way To Keep Avocados!

Go ahead, take advantage of any sales on avocados and buy all you want, ripe or unripe*...you'll never have to worry about your avocados going to waste again!

A while back, I posted a good way to save leftover avocados (How This Avocado BLT Stacks Up).  However, I have since discovered an even better way; and I've been using this method successfully for a while.

Simply, it's freezing the avocados!  I explain the method below...easy peasy!

Easy and Scrumptious Cheese Crisps

You know those little bits of cheese that just ooze out of your sandwich onto the grill...I, with great anticipation, just scoop them up and devour them!  Bet you do too!  So, it occurred to me...why not just intentionally make them in larger pieces!

These delectables are easily made with a panini press.  I'm sure other grill presses would work well too.

I experimented with some different kinds of cheese.  Of the three types of cheese I tried, the Parmesan and Mozzarella were the favored ones.  The Parmesan crisps, naturally, have a delightful tangy flavor and the Mozzarella crisps have a more mellow flavor.  I also tried mixed Colby and Jack cheeses, and they were good.  Enjoy these crunchy bites as an appetizer, soup or salad topper or simply as a snack!

I'm curious what type(s) of cheese you would try to make these crisps?

                             Crunchy and Cheesy...They Won't Last Long!

Saying Hi and A Little About My Traditional Whole Cranberry Sauce with A Twist

Hope everyone enjoyed a bountiful and delicious Thanksgiving!  Now, we're on to preparing for the forthcoming holidays. 

We always have homemade cranberry sauce on our table at Thanksgiving.  I've discovered a little bit of a twist on my traditional whole cranberry sauce that makes it really pop (and those cranberries do indeed pop when cooking!).

This post is a little teaser about my recipe for this sauce.  As I'm still working on my move (hopefully within a couple of weeks), I will come back to this post and share this special twist on a very simple recipe for traditional cranberry sauce.




Just waving at you now.  Stay tuned and enjoy the spirit of the holidays!

What's Going On with Bonnie?

Hello my dear friends!  Some may wonder why I've not been cooking lately.  Well, it just doesn't seem to be a good idea when you are staging you place for sale!  So, yes I'm moving!

If you have had the experience of putting your property on the market, you know that today you have to stage it....it's like moving twice!  Add to that, I've been here several years and things just accumulate.  Funny, you spend your whole life accumulating, then you spend it paring down.

So, wish we me luck; and in the meantime, I hope you continue to enjoy the recipes I've shared with you.

I'm really looking forward to sharing more recipes (even more!) after I settle in my new place...like this luscious Peanut Butter Cake:



Thank you for your loyalty, Happy Cooking and stay tuned!
