Mexican BLT with Guacamole

mexican-blt-1-2

Pizza! One of my favorite foods to eat of all time. I am salivating just writing about it. We made this for the first time a couple weeks ago and we loved it so much we had to make it again.

So our goto food is always pizza, we've been making pizza ever since we learned how to make pizza dough and we never looked back since. Anyhow, we didn't have too many … [Read more...]

Anyway to make a long story short, long day, tiring and cold. I was not in the mood to cook for hours so I decided on … [Read more...]

Fries Supreme

Don't hate me because I'm beautiful. Remember that 1980's Pantene commercial? That's what I think of when I see these fries! Seriously. Look at them. They are gorgeous.
