My husband, Jim, grew up in a town in northern San Diego called Fallbrook. The town is known for its amazing avocado groves. They claim the title of "The Avocado Capitol of the Country." They even have an avocado festival there each year. So -people that grew up there probably know a thing or two about guacamole. :) Jim's brother, Bob, makes this guacamole and it's awesome! My kids call him "Uncle Bob" and are completely smitten with him. After all - he plays trains and cars with . . .
Back in college I had a love for caesar salad. Who doesn't? I ate those salads all the time! And then...I got sick. I think the dressing was old or made with a bad egg...and I was so so sick. And so I swore off cesar salads for life. Now that I'm several years removed from the food poisoning - I've been thinking about Caesar salad again. But the thought of raw eggs in my dressing still makes me cringe. So I came up with the idea of making a yolk free dressing. Kid and pregnant lady . . .
This last week I took this Lentil Bruschetta to a few parties- each time nervous that people would look at it and run away (let's face it these lentils are not the most beautiful creatures on Earth...) but instead I received the opposite reaction! Every one LOVED it. I received so many comments and even texts asking for the recipe afterwards. SO so happy this was a major hit. I have every confidence that when you make this you will love it and everyone you share it with will love it . . .
I've been really excited about the posts that will be going up this week. I think the most popular season is fall. What's not to love? Fall has the best fashion, the best food, and the best smells. A few weeks ago my family went apple picking and it was the perfect activity to kick of the fall months. It also got me craving apple recipes big time - and so because I'm pregnant, and because I'm craving apple recipes - we are sharing delicious apple recipes all week long. So please follow . . .

My dear friend Erin, years ago, invited me to a cookie exchange during the holidays. At this gathering we were served the most delicious dip - Jalapeño Popper Dip. It was warm, creamy, with a little kick, and served alongside tortilla chips and fritos. Since that day, Erin has served these delicious dips at many get togethers - fight nights, football games, and bbqs. So when I asked her what I should take to my recent bunco night she instantly suggested this dip! It's a cinch to . . .
A few months back my parents came in to town. I was hosting a craft night during her stay and she insisted that I make this dip. She told me a co-worker of hers had given her the recipe and that it was to die for. You can't say no to a description like that! With only 3 ingredients, it was made up in no time! I served with with berries, grapes, and Nilla wafers. Needless to say it was snarfed down so so quickly. Everyone loved it! I promise this will be a hit at your . . .

I'm totally a smoothie type of girl so use it nearly everyday. Besides smoothies I think the next most common thing I make is dip. From hummus, to salsa and this black bean dip. The high power blender makes them incredibly smooth and can handle all the tough chunky veggies I like to add in. This black bean dip is one of my husbands . . .
We are all pretty dang excited about today's post and the recipes that will be coming this week. This week is all about Blendtec. It's no secret that around here we loooooove our Blendtecs!
