We’re dealing with a bit of a crazy, scary heatwave that unfortunately is super common in Los Angeles during the month of September. Good ol’ September! All I want to do is bathe in a bath full of ice cubes, drink nothing but cold beer and eat ceviche and fish tacos.
That’s classic hot weather-food. It’s also the food I want to eat when I’m craving something filling and awesome, but also leaves me feeling with a bit of pep in my step.
But mainly I made this because I want to share Stephanie’s new book, beautiful book.
The food looks glorious – and easy! If you like Stephanie’s blog, i am a food blog (it’s a must-read!), then you’ll love the book. The same design element from her blog is sprinkled throughout the book, the photos are modern, sleek, austere (in a good way!) and the food makes me want to run to my kitchen and make spicy chicken wings.
Also, Stephanie’s sweet and familiar personality comes through in the recipe head notes.
Today is a really good day. It’s beautiful out, the birds are chirping, dogs are everywhere looking adorable and you look particularly cute. You always look cute, but today you look extra cute. New jeans?
I’m in a really good mood. I mean, it is Friday. Heeeeyyyy Friday, HEY! But mainly it’s because avocados are so incredibly perfect that they make me giddy.
Have we met people that hate avocados? Not sure I’ve ever come across a person. Hope they don’t exist, honestly. (That’s kind of harsh of me, isn’t it?!)
Avocados are perfect all on their own. We know this. Avocados are also awesome fried, placed in between a tortillas and sprinkled with radishes and cotija cheese.
Welcome to my experiment!! Wait, don’t leave; it’s not a food experiment, like, on you or anything. I wouldn’t do that. Let me explain…
I have food allergies. You’re allergic to a food thing or two, right? Please say I’m not the only one who feels like Macaulay Culkin in My Girl.
My current allergy list kinda sucks–sure it could be worse, but there’s a few bummers. My body turns on me when I eat things like truffles (sad!), all bleu vein cheeses like, gorgonzola, roquefort, stilton, etc. AND…sometimes mushrooms.
My body sometimes hates mushrooms…and sometimes it’s cool with them.
Usually I don’t take chances because I don’t really feel like dealing with some embarrassing twenty-minute sneezing situation. But yesterday…I was feeling brave.
And guess what?! My body totally loved these tacos. Which means your non-allergenic, normal body will too!
