Full-Belly Stuffed and Baked Avocado

4-8 Servings Ingredients: 2 ripe but firm avocados 3 ounces feta cheese of choice, cut into small cubes (no bigger than 1/2") 3 tablespoons very finely minced green onions (white and green parts) Black pepper 2 teaspoons olive oil 1/2 cup bread cut into 1/4-inch cubes Kosher salt 1/4 cup mayonnaise 1-3 teaspoons sriracha 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice Instructions: 1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. 2. Halve the avocados lengthwise and remove the pits. Reserve the skins. Scoop out the flesh and chop it into pieces about 1/2-1 inch big. Place them in a bowl and add the feta, onions, and a generous grind of black pepper. Stir gently to mix; it's fine if the mixture gets a little mushed together. 3. Set the avocado skins on a baking tray, open-side up. Evenly distribute the avocado-feta filling amongst the 4 shells; you'll need to pile the filling high. If you are having trouble keeping the avocados from tipping over, either prop them up against each other, or put a handful of raw rice on the tray and nest the avocado in it. 4. Bake them until they are warmed through, 12-15 minutes. 5. In the meantime, make the croutons. Heat the oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add in the breadcrumbs and a small pinch of salt. Stir constantly until the bread begins to brown, about 5 minutes. As soon as the bread reaches the desired color, remove it from the heat and reserve. 6. Mix the mayonnnaise, sriracha, and lemon juice and set aside. 7. When the avocados are done, place them on a serving plate. Top with the sauce and then the croutons. Serve immediately.

Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies
These look simply incredible. Two of my favorite things, chocolate chip cookies and caramel, combined into one heavenly cookie creation. I was looking for more caramel recipes (because that's what I do in my spare time, duh) when I found this recipe from Table for Two. I mean, can you even imagine anything more perfect?!? Look at that gooey, warm caramel. Those molten chocolate chunks. That perfectly chewy cookie. Imagine how good these are fresh out of the oven. Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies Prep Time: 10 min. Cook Time: 13 min. Difficulty: Easy Recipe adapted from Table for Two Ingredients 3 sticks (1½ cup) unsalted butter, softened 1½ cup dark brown sugar, packed ½ cup granulated sugar 2 eggs 4 tsp. vanilla extract 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 cups bread flour (you may use all-purpose flour instead if you don't have it on hand) 4 tsp. cornstarch 2 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. salt 1½ cups chocolate chunks ½ cup dark chocolate, finely chopped 18 caramel candies, cut in half to give you 36 Directions 1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. In another mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until fluffy (about 2 mins). Add eggs and vanilla. Beat 2 more mins. 2. Gradually add flour mixture, beating until fully incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips with a spatula. To form the cookies, take a spoonful of dough, and use your thumb to make a small hole and press the caramel into the center. Re-roll the ball to cover the caramel candy. 3. Bake for 11-13 minutes. They may look quite soft at this point, but remember they will continue to cook after you remove them from the oven. Allow them to cool completely on baking sheet, or else they'll break and caramel will ooze everywhere. Enjoy, my fellow cookie monsters!! This one's for @JPBenedetto – maybe you could find a way to work in some oatmeal here, for a little extra chew? :D <3 @Luci546 @MooshieBay @InPlainSight You guys might like this one as well :)
Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate Cookies
I can't tell if how much I love caramel should be cause for concern, or if everyone loves that sweet gooey goodness as much as I do. *shrug* What can I say? I know I posted a caramel-stuffed cookie recipe not so long ago, but I saw this one on Sally's Baking Addiction and simply could not resist. Dark chocolate cookies stuffed with caramel, sprinkled with large flake sea salt? Yes please. Oh, and these don't have just any old caramel on the inside. They're ROLOs. Isn't that ingenious?? What you'll need: 1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar 1/2 cup (100g) packed dark brown sugar (or light brown sugar) 1 large egg, room temperature preferred 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup (125g) all-purpose flour (measured correctly) 2/3 cup (58g) unsweetened cocoa powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/8 teaspoon salt 2 Tablespoons (30ml) milk 1 and 1/2 cups (270g) Nestlé® Toll House® Dark Chocolate Morsels 16-17 chocolate coated caramels, such as Rolos coarse sea salt 1. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter on medium speed for about 20 seconds. Add sugars and cream together until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. 2. In another medium-size mixing bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add to wet ingredients until combined. Stir in milk, and fold in dark chocolate morsels. Let dough chill for 1-2 hours. 3. Preheat oven to 350°F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. To form cookies, take 2 tablespoons of dough, split in half, and stick a caramel in the middle. Roll into a ball, making sure caramel is sealed completely inside. Sprinkle with sea salt before baking. Repeat 16-18 times. 4. Bake for 12-13 minutes. Cookies will still appear somewhat raw, but they will continue cooking after you remove them from oven. Allow to cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before carefully removing to wire rack to cool completely. Bake for 12-13 minutes. Cookies will appear undone and very soft. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for at least 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. I am making these the SECOND I have some baking time in my schedule. I can't wait. For someone who loves to eat healthy and exercise, I sure can eat a lot of chocolate and caramel...

Coffee Culture In 2020
Like most societies, coffee culture is the same truly. A gathering of individuals united by a typical intrigue. What preferred spot over a coffee shop. There is consistently a buzz, and hive of movement. It draws in here and there, such huge numbers of similar individuals, and in different ways such an assortment. From businesspeople, to housewives, understudies to instructors. Several years prior, they were mainstream meeting places for craftsmen. A couple of years back, Wine Masters were springing up all over the place, and now the most recent pattern is by all accounts turning into a Barrister. We were lucky enough to have the option to talk with Winston, one of the top cutting-edge Barristers in the Country. Nowadays regardless of where I am, or what I am doing, coffee is by all accounts shouting out at me! Coffee culture, coffee culture! The vast majority have coffee making machines, and there are shops committed to selling just coffee. We are so spoilt for decision, that it is hard to tell which coffee to drink, when, where and why? I am going to a Barristers course right on time one month from now, and will be back with loads more data on what all the diverse coffee beans are, and how to pick between them. In the interim, not secure with you, yet I am getting very confounded between the various approaches to drink coffee. Gone are the days when we just had the decision between a coffee and a cappuccino. Worse still, when I grew up, we either had moment or permeated coffee. Presently we have an entire scope of approaches to drink our coffee: - Latte: A coffee blended in with a foamed milk froth. - Americana: Made by adding boiling water to a cup with a tot of coffee in it. - Iced Coffee: Chilled coffee with a touch of vanilla frozen yogurt. - Cappuccino: some coffee canvassed in a layer of foamed milk froth. - Skinny Cappuccino. Equivalent to a cappuccino, yet made with fat free milk. - Flat white: some coffee with milk. - Espresso: Extremely solid, and thick, with "crema" (coffee froth on the top). Consequently, bistro crema being an elective name for an Italian coffee. - Macchiato: some foamed milk, topped off with a coffee. - Moccachino: A bistro latte with chocolate added to it. - Frappe. A coffee with ice, served dark or white. What's more, to make coffee considerably additionally luring, numerous Countries around the globe have their own unique coffees, for example, Caffe Au Lait: France Egg Coffee: Vietnam Turkish Coffee: Turkey Bistro Bombon: Spain Bistro Cubana: Cuba Wiener: Vienna Palazzo: USA Caffe De Ola: Mexico To finish it off we have alcoholic coffee drinks, similar to an Irish coffee, Bavarian coffee, Café imperial, Kalua coffee, and even coffee mixers. I need to state that my most loved is as yet a cappuccino. It must be made with the best quality coffee beans, and overflowing over the highest point of the cup with froth. In the event that you can persuade me in any case, if it's not too much trouble share with me the manner in which you love your coffee. Winston's Interview.. How could you engage with coffee. How did everything start? Without romanticizing excessively, there was a protest in my neighborhood paper about the terrible coffee served in my town. That was around 5 years back. In the wake of perusing that I began tasting various coffees attempting to make sense of what a decent mug of coffee truly was. This in the end drove me to Origin Coffee Roasting where I did a barista course while concentrating in 2013. I worked low maintenance at a roaster in Somerset West and a market in Woodstock until I finished my examinations in June 2014. I began working all day at Origin in August 2014. What makes you keep on filling in as a barista? Is the activity dull? No it's not tedious. It might appear that route in light of the fact that, on the far edge of the bar, it would seem that we're simply pouring coffee consistently yet that is a long way from it. We're utilizing various coffees consistently so there's a great deal of tasting included, the climate is continually changing which implies the coffee pours contrastingly for the duration of the day so we need to work appropriately, we meet various individuals consistently, face various difficulties every day and so forth. So distant from tedious. What's more, that is actually why I keep on filling in as a barista. Where do you discover your motivation? I discover my motivation by taking a gander at all the individuals engaged with the coffee cycle. From the rancher, to the green coffee purchaser, the roaster, barista lastly the customer. To realize that I assume a job in this procedure gives me the motivation to attempt my hardest to serve the most ideal mug of coffee. To equity to the individuals who have had their influence before me. What is the new "in" in the present coffee industry? To be straightforward I believe that quality has gotten the new "in" in the coffee business. Increasingly more bistro are attempting to deliver better coffee, which makes things extremely serious as far as quality. This drives the business a positive way. More bistros are additionally starting to utilize option or channel blend techniques like the aeropress and v60 pourover to make channel coffee. This is best delighted in dark without sugar to guarantee that the disturbances and attributes of the coffee can be gotten. What sort of coffee do you/dislike to make I like creation a wide range of coffee. There is coffee based coffees like your run of the mill Americano and latte and there is channel blend like the French press or aeropress. I can't state I loathe causing particular kinds of coffees however I to do some of the time wince when clients need a surprising request that removes the accentuation of the coffee. For instance an enormous milk based with a solitary shot and soya milk will totally dominate the kind of the coffee. Be that as it may, toward the day's end coffee is emotional and we can't mention to the clients what it is they like or abhorrence, we can just offer guidance and ideally direct them. What is the most tedious coffee to make? I'd state the channel techniques we use in our bistro is the most tedious. The French press takes around 5 minutes to finish. While coffee based takes approximately 2 minutes. What would you be able to inform me regarding Coffee Culture? Coffee Culture. Where do I start? Well right now in the coffee business (around the world) we're encountering what we call "Third wave." "First wave" would be characterized as the manner in which our folks might've had their coffee. Moment coffee or a dull broiled Italian mix in the family unit channel machine. There was no genuine coffee or bistro culture. At that point, with the appearance of Starbucks and other business coffee chains, the "Second wave" of coffee people developed. Individuals turned out to be progressively mindful of what they were drinking and the pattern of takeaway coffee based beverages like lattes and cappuccinos began. At the present time we're encountering "Third wave" where individuals in the coffee have gotten progressively aware of the nature of the coffee they purchase. A few organizations going the extent that building up direct exchange with ranchers so they add to improving cultivating strategies, sending out and so forth. Green coffee beans are cooked with accuracy and a ton of care is taken in getting ready both coffee based and channel drinks. Alongside this, shoppers are additionally aware of the nature of coffee in bistros. Buyers realize what they need when purchasing coffee, more so than previously. What's more, they are additionally significantly progressively taught. Due to this you discover more bistros opening and more purchasers visiting bistros hence a developing bistro culture. Greater than previously. Enlighten me concerning the rivalries you have won and what lies ahead for you. Most as of late I've won the South African National Aeropress title. The aeropress is essentially a separating gadget used to make coffee. What's more, I won the national rivalry so I'll be contending in the World Aeropress titles in Dublin, Ireland in June.

Others go with the ultra-casual approach as they just jot down the specials on a chalkboard and let the customers point to their choices. Both work, though, depending on the situation. But if you’re looking for ways to improve your customer’s dining experience, then providing a good menu is a step in the right direction. Here are some of the best ways to pull this off. Understand the Link What’s the connection between the restaurant kitchen and the menu? Once you identify that, figuring out the rest will be easy. Start with the size and setup of your kitchen. If you have a small kitchen, then you obviously will have a smaller menu. However, that doesn’t mean having a bigger kitchen means you can have a menu with over a hundred items on offer. Know What to Avoid Steer clear of fonts that are hard to read, no matter how artistic or cute they may be. Also, if the description is overly long, that’s going to leave your customers confused. It’s best to keep the description simple and straight to the point so people know what they’re ordering. Make sure you create the right impression by putting your best foot—or food—forward in your menu. Price It Right If the items are too pricey, that may scare away potential customers. That doesn’t mean you should shy away from putting expensive items on your menu. Just make sure they’re an excellent match for your restaurant. One tip that can help is to put expensive items side by side with affordable options. Spread them apart in the menu, so customers get to view options that are well within their price range. Also, if you're going to put up seasonal items on your menu, make sure you use the market price. Create Special Menus Many restaurants provide customers with different menus for special occasions, like Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day. The good thing about offering up a menu like this is that it limits the food items available at such a busy time, which makes it easier for the kitchen to prepare and whip out the orders in the shortest time possible. Think About the Cost It's fun to be creative with your menu by putting out food that reflects your ideas of what playful or fun should be. However, always temper your wishes by thinking about the cost. Using expensive ingredients that may drain your budget dry may not be ideal. Look for substitutes that are equally tasty and that still work. Add or change items on your menu, too. Don’t be afraid to experiment. If you keep on improving your menu, your customers will always have something to look forward to.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Shot Glasses
In honor of National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day, here is a deliciously fun way to get your chocolate chip cookie fix during happy hour: Chocolate Chip Cookie Shot Glasses! And in case you think I am making this holiday up, you can find it , and a ton of other national holidays that will blow your mind at National Day Calendar online. This 4 1/2 star recipe comes from All Recipes user, Nicole Faust Hunt, called "Absolutely The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies." To make the shot glasses, you will need a 'popover' pan. Otherwise, you can make these using small cupcake pans. However, the shape of the glass will not look like a shot glass. Ingredients: 1 cup butter flavored shortening (not butter) 3/4 cup white sugar 3/4 cup brown sugar 2 eggs 2 teaspoons Mexican vanilla extrac t2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 2 cups milk chocolate chips Chocolate candy melts (for later) Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease the pan. In a large bowl, cream together the butter flavored shortening, brown sugar and white sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla .Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually stir into the creamed mixture. Finally, fold in the chocolate chips. Press the cookie dough into the popover pan bottom and sides. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until light brown. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Separately, melt the chocolate candy melts in a microwave or a double boiler. Once the cookie shot glasses have cooled, spoon in the candy melts, covering the bottom and inside cookie walls. This will harden relatively quick, or you can put it in the fridge. This coating will prevent liquids from being absorbed into the cookie. After this is all done, fill these with milk for the 20 and younger crowd or click here for imbibery goodness that you can fill your chocolate chip cookie shot glasses with!
14 Mind-blowing Dessert Lasagnas!
I guess these people never got the memo about lasagna being a dinner food – and oh man, am I glad they didn't. These innovative kitchen wizards have turned a saucy Italian cheesefest into a gourmet dessert. This is a food trend that I have NO doubt we'll be seeing soon on upscale dessert menus around the world. It's hip, it's totally different, and it's just the right amount of weird to tickle the imagination. See what you think – which one of these fantastical desserts would you most like to try? (I've tried to give credit where credit is due. All the recipes are linked below; just click on the word "Recipe." Photos belong to respective owners.) :) Chocolate Lasagna Brownies, chocolate pudding, and Oreos – oh my! Add some whipped cream, and you've got a lasagna. (I never, ever thought I would EVER say that sentence.) Recipe by Rachel Schultz, A Household Almanac Apple Pie Lasagna Let me be clear: this is not your grandmother's apple pie. Oh sure, it's got apples, cinnamon, and sugar – but it's also got caramel cream cheese filling, Heath bar toffee bites, and a touch of maple syrup. I have only one word: WANT. Recipe by Beyond Frosting Pumpkin Pie Dessert Lasagna I don't know if they necessarily needed to specify that this was a "dessert lasagna" – I think that's pretty clear from the whole "pumpkin pie" part. But I digress. We're talking pumpkin, Cool Whip, pumpkin spice chips (which exist, apparently!?) and chopped pecans. It might be 91 degrees out today, but suddenly I'm feeling a little autumnal! Recipe by The Cookie Rookie, inspired by Beyond Frosting (who is apparently our dessert lasagna MVP!) S'mores Lasagna And speaking of Beyond Frosting, she's also responsible for this dare-I-say GORGEOUS creation topped with gooey toasted marshmallows. S'mores Lasagna may be an improvement on the already impossibly wonderful campfire dessert, because it's got two types of graham cracker (original AND chocolate), marshmallow fluff, whipped cream, and – for the mess-haters among us – you can eat it with a fork. Recipe by Julianne Bayer of Beyond Frosting (the dessert lasagna goddess herself. soon we'll all be wearing t-shirts with her face on it.) Brownie Brittle Strawberry Lasagna Before we get too carried away in our decadence, Julianne (yep, we're on a first name basis now) has whipped up a lighter version of dessert lasagna featuring a cheesecake filling, dark chocolate pudding, and plenty of strawberries. See? It's got fruit! It's obviously healthy. Yet again, recipe by my idol, Julianne Bayer of Beyond Frosting Nutella Cheesecake Lasagna Okay, so maybe the photography skills are a little lacking on this one, but the concept is so flawless that I had to include it. Nutella and cheesecake, married into one perfect lasagna that is then dusted with brownie mix and chocolate chips. I can't really explain how much I'm salivating right now. (Sorry for that wonderful image.) Recipe by Modern Christian Homemaker Paleo Chocolate Lasagna Eating clean? Don't worry! We've still found the perfect dessert lasagna for you. Interesting ingredients in this one include coconut palm sugar, almond butter, apple cider vinegar, and shredded zucchini. I won't pretend to understand how it all works, but I will trust the author when she says it's delicious. Maybe. Recipe by Vanessa Barejas of Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind (which is an awesome name for a blog) Fabulous Fruit Lasagna Whoa, a dessert lasagna that actually uses noodles! I bet you were wondering when one of these was gonna show up. This lasagna is a delightful conglomeration of fresh berries, mascarpone and ricotta cheeses, brown sugar, nutmeg, cloves, and a pinch of chili powder. Not what I was expecting! It can also be made, the author suggests, with chocolate pasta. Recipe by F.H. Browne, posted on Just a Pinch Chocolate Toast Crunch Lasagna Did you know that Cinnamon Toast Crunch has a chocolaty cousin? Chocolate Toast Crunch adds a special, well, crunchiness to this dessert lasagna. Its creamy filling has a hint of almond flavor. Mmm. Recipe by Cheeky Kitchen, posted on Tablespoon Frozen Snickers Peanut Butter Lasagna It's been pretty hot out, so why not stick your dessert lasagna in the freezer? Dry roasted peanuts, caramel sauce, and little pieces of Snickers? This is exactly what I want to be eating right now. Recipe by Not Your Momma's Cookie Oreo Pumpkin Lasagna Maybe you can't get enough of dessert lasagnas. Maybe you want to try more than one of them. Why not do it at the same time? This recipe is a combination of pumpkin pie and Oreo dessert lasagnas – and I can't think of a single reason it wouldn't be delicious. Recipe by Kitchen Nostalgia Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Lasagna But come on guys, let's be real: this is the dessert lasagna you've been waiting for. Layers of creamy and chocolatey deliciousness topped with mini Reese's cups? Game over. Recipe by Marty's Musings Chocolate Candy Lasagna This take on chocolate lasagna tops it off with yummy and colorful crushed M&Ms! And then you have your choice between caramel and hot fudge drizzle toppings. But I say, Vinglers... why not both? Recipe by Princess Pinky Girl (yes, that is her real name) Chocolate Lasagna 2.0 And finally, we've got one last spin on chocolate lasagna from Center Cut Cook. It features a thick Oreo crust, a sweet whipped cream cheese filling, chocolate pudding, and lots of tiny chocolate chips. I think the width of the crust layer and the crunchiness of the mini-chips set it apart from other versions! Recipe by Center Cut Cook Which one of these crazy creations are you trying first?
