Day 19 of 20 (4/20 Foods) – Guac-a-Marlee

We’re almost there! Nineteen days of recipes and we still have one more to go.

Today’s recipe actually was inspired by a restaurant near us that we went to with our family friend, Julie. We didn’t like anything we had that night except for this amazing “Sweet and Spicy” guacamole that had pomegranate seeds and dried apricots. Thinking back, we don’t really remember what the spicy component was but we liked it so much, we decided to make our version.

Most people who are reading our blog hopefully have a general idea of how to cook/bake and make things, so the recipe below is missing quantities because we want to allow you to make the guacamole to your specific tastes and how much you want or need.

Enjoy our tasty and addictive creation below!

Day 18 of 20 (4/20 Foods) – TYLS EATS LA: Donuts

We told you a few days ago we wanted to share some of our favorite LA Eats with you, for those who either live here or those who are traveling to here. We were originally going to do like a top five list in each category of food (Indian, Mexican, Chinese ect.)  but there are just too many good restaurants here, that we just thought we’d do a feature on each one as we see fit. And we do have a lot of favorite restaurants.

We wanted to share a little secret with you: Kettle Glazed Doughnuts.  They have some of the best donuts and Croissant-style donuts around. We’ve never tried the original at the Dominique Ansel Bakery, but we’re confident that the Kettle Glazed version would stand up tall next to the famous trademarked version.

PS: You might notice two spellings of donut/doughnut. This is because we personally use the spelling donut, but wanted to respect the titles of the doughnuts according to Kettle Glazed. 

Below is Kettle Glazed’s chocolate drizzled croissant-style donut.
