Two Feet of Snow Coming? Let's Cook!

My inner food stylist is having way too much fun with this blog.

We're under blizzard conditions today in Upstate New York. The kids are home from school, the media advises no non-essential driving, and there's plenty of wood for the fireplace and candles to light, so we're going to celebrate Valentine's Day with some hugs, gluten-free chocolate and a lot of good cooking.

Here’s our favorite guacamole recipe. When the garden’s in season, we add some chopped cilantro, which we once grew from purchased seeds but now comes back year after year in some spot of the garden.

Guacamole Jagareski

2 ripe avocadoes, peeled and mashed
1 fat clove garlic, run through garlic press or minced fine
Kosher salt to taste
Juice of ½ lime
2 Tbsp. chopped red onion
Hot sauce to taste (red or green)
2 tsp. cumin

Blend all ingredients together and let stand at room temperature at least one hour before serving to let flavors get to know each other.
