Gluten Free Avocado Toast

Udi's Gluten Free Hot Dog Bun, Avocado, Crumbled Goat Cheese, Bacon, Fried Egg and Salt, Pepper and Red Pepper Flakes.

If you need to follow a recipe to make avocado toast, we can't be friends.

I'm kidding, I'm kidding - but really, avocado toast is pretty near impossible to mess up. Mash up that green beauty, smear it on toast and jazz it up however you see fit. You can add a fried egg, a spritz of lime or a kick of spice... But with bacon and goat cheese it tastes really nice. You can make it on a rice cake and leave out the bread, you can make it in seconds and go back to bed...

See how excited avocado toast makes me? It's seriously my favorite breakfast.

Pictured above and below are two variations that are simple, delicious and gluten free!

Quaker Sun-dried Tomato and Basil Rice Cake, Avocado, Spritz of Lime Juice, Fried Egg and a sprinkling of Epicure Guacamole Dip Mix.


Gluten Free Mexican Dip

This dip came to be when I had leftover corn on the cob from a previous meal, three lime wedges, a ready-to-use avocado and a big bag of corn chips staring me in the face. I mean, what's a girl to do other than make a dip? Add some cheese to the mix and you're laughing!

I will definitely make this again, maybe next time adding some black beans and red onion. It's bright and colorful and fresh, the cheesy layer combined with the smooth avocado and crumbled feta gives it that creamy texture you want a dip to have, and the hint of lime makes it taste like something you'd eat in Mexico.


1/2 block of cream cheese.
1 small tub of sour cream.
A sprinkling or a dash of hot sauce, taco seasoning or Louisiana Hot & Spicy dip mix by Epicure.

Mix all of this together and spread it on a pie plate or shallow bowl for your base layer.

Grilled corn.
Green or red onion.
Feta cheese.
Fresh lime juice.

Simply layer the above ingredients however you see fit and finish with a generous squeeze of lime juice. Serve it cold with gluten free corn chips like Old Dutch.

* Not so pretty the following day, people. Eat it up!

You're welcome!

It's September First And I Am Currently...

FEELING out of shape and a bit nervous about taking my workout from the comfort of my living room to a studio full of women for my first session of Pound classes this fall. 

READING sewing patterns, or at least trying to. 

LISTENING TO Brothers Osborne, Port Cities and Lady Gaga's Joanne album on repeat.

WATCHING Big Brother and The Sinner, which is so incredibly twisted - and just starting season two of Game of Thrones. Totally late to the GOT party, but better late than never.

PLAYING the guitar after months of neglecting it. It was a gift from G years ago and sadly it's not something I really stuck with, but every now and then I pick it up, attempt a song or two and get inspired to learn more.

WORRIED ABOUT getting everything I need for a fun weekend in Montreal in a carry-on bag.

WORKING ON a formal dress by pattern, hoping that it's something I can wear to a friends wedding next summer.

CONSIDERING cutting my hair even shorter but concerned that I'd have to put more time into styling it, and that wouldn't fly for this air-dry-only gal.

CRUSHING ON my husband, and before you roll your eyes know that I said Jason Momoa and Justin Trudeau last time I filled this out, but this time I have to give credit where credit is due. My husband is my favorite, for more reasons than I can list. 

EATING corn on the cob with lime, Parmesan cheese, chili powder and paprika sprinkled all over. Also, I can't get enough salad with this homemade blueberry vinaigrette. 
  • 1 cup (give or take) of fresh blueberries.
  • 1/4 cup of white vinegar.
  • 6 tbsp EVOO.
  • 1/4 honey. 

DRINKING my coffee with almond milk and honey.

EXCITED FOR my weekend away with friends to see Lady Gaga in Montreal.

EXCITED ABOUT all things fall, my favorite season, just around the corner.

MISSING my pool already, even though I'm sure I can get a few more swims in before we shut it down for the fall and winter. 

AVOIDING the task of painting our bedroom. I really want white walls, and I know it wouldn't take me long to do it - but I can't seem to muster up the energy or make the time. 

STRUGGLING WITH the fact that some of my favorite clothes don't fit anymore. Whoops! #ThisIs30

HATING that I went to the beach ONE time this summer. ONE time, isn't that sad? For those of you who don't know where I live - the most beautiful beaches you ever did see are never more than five minutes from me. I can see the ocean from my office and both of our family homes, not to mention the beach is only a five minute drive from our house. I am slack.

LOVING our Endy mattress so, so much. I'm having the best sleep of my life in that bed.
