Something that is already amazing just got infinitely better.

Guacamole 10

I adore guacamole. Give me a tub and I’ve got dinner. Sometimes I like to have a little chip with my dip, but it’s honestly just to look civilized.

I’ve seen other recipes that use peas to lighten the caloric load of guacamole, but peas add their own distinct and frankly undesirable taste and texture. Not too mention extra carbs. Here you won’t even notice the kale, or the lowered calories and extra nutritional vitamin goodness that comes along.

You’ll be too busy swooning over your indulgent gucamole snack. Or dinner. No judgement.

Guacamole 8

Set out your ingredients and bask in the fresh produce of this glorious season.

Guacamole 1

Process the ingredients in your beloved Magimix, which at this point has become a member of your family. (Easter was really fun this year. )

Guacamole 2

Enjoy it with your favorite dippables.

Guacamole 7

Or off a spoon. I regret nothing.

Guacamole 4

You are so pleased with yourself for whipping up this brilliant concotion (you can totally take credit in front of your guests) that you buy yourself the greatest pair of shoes ever because dang it you’re worth it.

Reebok 1

Oh these shoes. Reebok Skyscape how I love you so. Even seeing the pictures makes my heart flutter a bit. #styleneverstops

Reebok 2

Before this, I’ll admit to having a strong disdain for sneakers. I did not like them. I did not wear them. I am a thoroughly devoted boot girl, and the one time I’ve deviated is in buying an old pair of sneakers off ebay for ten bucks and wearing them a grand total of twice.

I’m a tough convert. But the Skyscapes have done the impossible.

Reebok 3

These. These are different. The lovely hue adds a healthy dose of color to any outfit (pink for me-yay cancer awareness!), and they are so inexpicably comfortable. Even more so than *gasp* my combat boots. (And that’s saying something. I was about to propose to those things.)

As for my attempted stylings, behold lazy day chic.

Photo credits to my divinely patient mother. (Bet you never knew you’d be a fashion photographer, hey Mom?)

Reebok 5

So if you feel like treating yourself, and quite frankly I think you should, these shoes are incredible. I wouldn’t say so if they weren’t. I’ve been wearing them so much from workouts to yoga to walking around to lounging around and it’s so bad that it’s good.

French Onion Soup

by Kelly M

And now I dream of soup. Clearly I have my priorities straight.

Onion Soup 4

This onion soup is so worth busting out the breath mints. It’s blanketed in bubbly cheese and crusty bread and filled to the brim with magical caramelized onions. It tastes like winning the lottery, only creamier.

Onion Soup 5

finally made a blogging resources page. Well that only took a few years. I love you all so much, and it’s a pleasure to be able to share what I’ve learned from building Foodie Fiasco to over 800,000 page views (!?!?!) a month.  (No Mom, I can’t believe it’s happening either.)

So please do check it out. I spill all the programs that power Foodie Fiasco and have been invaluable in making it what it is today. I feel so lucky, and truly hope I can help you in your blogging endeavours.

But if you’re here to talk about the copious amounts of coffee and soup and coffee that bring us through the night, then you’re in the right place. Mmm. Soup. And coffee.

Onion Soup 6

Let’s begin, shall we? Roll up thy sleeves and channel Julia Child. (Congrats. You are now six feet tall and can walk on water. )

Golden, caramelized onions. Worth their weight in actual gold.

Onion Soup 1

It’s amazing what a little broth and a lot of time can do to a soup. Just an hour of letting the ingredients simmer and mingle creates a world of fairy dust in our bowls.

Onion Soup 2

Muster all the strength you possibly can to not eat the soup straight out of the pot… like I did. Oops.

Onion Soup 3

But we have to save a little room for the cheese blizzard!

Onion Soup 10
Did somebody say cheese?

Onion Soup 7

I do enjoy cheese.

Onion Soup 8

Healthy Carrot Cake

by Kelly M

I don’t know how many slices of this I ate. I stopped counting after three. There’s something to be said for a cake that counts as a vegetable. I always knew cake was the base of the nutritional pyramid, and living the dream is admittedly sweet. Perfectly sweet, actually, with a hint of cinnamon. I […]

Cauliflower Buffalo Wings

by Kelly M

If I could choose one food to live on, this would be it. I was stupefied by how much these tasted like actual buffalo wings. And considering that my (adorable) chubby childhood self would readily live on boneless buffalo wings, I’d consider myself an expert on the subject. My expert opinion? This recipe rocks of […]

Nutella Swirl Muffins {Giveaway Now Closed}

by Kelly M

I’m alive! Please please forgive my missing-in-action-ness, but I went from a solid week of rehearsals leading up to a magical concert straight to a New York tour and lots of incredible food to share with you. It’s a whirlwind but I love it and I love you too and everything is okay. Actually, everything […]

Single Serving Snickerdoodle {#MyHomeTownGuide LA Edition!}

by Kelly M

{Partner post} This is an ode to great food and an ode to joy. Is that redundant? This snickerdoodle is inspired by my favorite cookie of all time: the cinnamon sugar cookie from Diddy Riese in Westwood. It’s perfectly soft, perfectly sweet, and perfectly perfect. I aimed to recreate a healthy version of this indulgence […]

Healthy French Toast

by Kelly M

This recipe has made me into a morning person. Seriously. Ask my mother. My third grade teacher. My dog who wants to be walked. Kelly does not do mornings, and heaven only knows what two plus two could equal before noon. So what is this miraculous breakfast that gets her up before the sun does? Fluffy, […]

Single Serving Cinnamon Roll

by Kelly M

This is just one of those magical happy recipes. I adore it. I am considering choreographing an interpretive dance of appreciation for this cinnamon roll, but I don’t think it would do this miraculous confection justice. Perhaps a full-scale musical would be more fitting? It must clearly indicate how amazing this recipe is. Preferably with […]

Healthy Texas Sheet Cake

by Kelly M

Also known as a big hunk of chocolate cake perfection. I feel like I should give you some history on this. Instead of quoting the Texas sheet cake Wikipedia page that does not exist, I’ll tell you that all my taste testers adored this and I’ve never been to Texas but I have seen it […]

Healthy Ratatouille

My dear friends: The Homies Awards are now open! I would be immensely and eternally grateful to you if you took a minute to slip in a good word about Foodie Fiasco. Whether or not you do, The Kitchn is too fabulous to pass up. I love you very much. Thank you thank you! This […]
