Something that is already amazing just got infinitely better.
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.
Set out your ingredients and bask in the fresh produce of this glorious season.
Process the ingredients in your beloved Magimix, which at this point has become a member of your family. (Easter was really fun this year. )
Enjoy it with your favorite dippables.
Or off a spoon. I regret nothing.
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.
Oh these shoes. Reebok Skyscape how I love you so. Even seeing the pictures makes my heart flutter a bit. #styleneverstops
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.
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.

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.
And now I dream of soup. Clearly I have my priorities straight.
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.
I 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.
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.
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.
Muster all the strength you possibly can to not eat the soup straight out of the pot… like I did. Oops.
But we have to save a little room for the cheese blizzard!
I do enjoy cheese.
