I'm afraid of avocado's. Well, I guess it's not the avocado I'm afraid of but the act of getting to the avocado. A few years ago, I was attempting to get the pit out of the avocado, which any of you who have tried know that this can be a challenge at times. Well in my effort to stab the pit out with a knife, I missed the pit and ended up slicing open my hand. I'm sure there are others of you who know my pain, at least I hope so. The problem is that I love avocado's, so I continue to risk bodily injury to enjoy this great food.

I mentioned earlier this month that I had joined the Daring Cooks when I created the Papas Rellenos. Well there's a second side of the kitchen that's called the Daring Bakers and I also joined that group! That means I've got two chances a month to try something new and challenging.
The March 2011 Daring Baker’s Challenge was hosted by Ria of Ria’s Collection and Jamie of Life’s a Feast. Ria and Jamie challenged The Daring Bakers to bake a yeasted Meringue Coffee Cake.

Corner Table Restaurant in Minneapolis. It was a great experience spending time with some other bloggers and getting to learn more about what Scott has planned at Corner Table.

I had some filet mignon left over from when I made Beef Wellington a few weeks ago and I wanted to make something a little different with it and I came across this salad from Bobby Flay. It just sounded good so I thought I'd give it a whirl.

We've lived quite a few places around the country since we've been married but one of our favorites is certainly our time spent in New Orleans, Louisiana. We were there for just a year but we fell in love with the people, culture and of course the food. One for the best events we were able to participate in was the fantastic series of parades leading up to Mardi Gras. We lived in Mandeville and they hosted some great family friendly parades that the kids loved to go to. It was so much fun standing alongside the parade route cheering and trying to get the best toys and trinkets from floats. We still have bags of beads and trinkets that the kids love to play with just from the one year that we were there.

Newman's Own Products and a new flipHD video camera! As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program they had sent me the products and asked that we make a family friendly meal with some of the ingredients. So tonight was Pizza night!
