Guacamole Dip


Ingredients: serves 2

  • large avocado: 2 peeled and mashed
  • tomatoes: 1 chopped
  • onion: 1/4 cup diced
  • garlic: 2 cloves minced
  • jalapeno: 1 seeded and finely chopped
  • lime juice: 2 tablespoon
  • fresh cilantro: 1/4 cup chopped

Note: The avocados need to be soft for the dip. I like to keep it slightly chunky, but you can mash the avocados to be as smooth as you want the dip to be.

Sweet Potato Fries


I love sweet potato fries! Every time I go to the grocery store I buy a sweet potato or two. They are so simple to make too. 

You can slice them any why you want. Put them on a pan. Drizzle olive oil, salt and pepper on them. Bake at around 350. Takes approximately 30 minutes depending on how crispy you want them. That’s it!
