I should confess at this point to being an unashamed avocado-holic. Avocados rock my world in every way and I don’t just eat them when we’re dining on Mexican. Don’t get me wrong, guacamole is one of my absolute favorite things on earth but I’m just as happy scooping out that creamy flesh with a spoon and eating it as is. Even better, I adore it sliced and on toast with a sprinkling of sea salt, cracked black pepper and few splashes of Tabasco, sheer heaven!

Late Saturday night, it did not seem ambitious to set my alarm for 10:45am the next morning.  It should have, because that left me 45 minutes before my friend was due to arrive for brunch on Sunday. Of course, at 2:30am on Saturday night, I didn’t have the clarity of mind to remember that too little prep time can result in catastrophic meals. I would have realized that that cooking brunch and deciding last minute to bake a dessert as well doesn’t usually make for epic meals. No, usually it does not work. Read More
