Broccoli and Cheddar Soup

Was tasty ...
but Instead of using a standing blender I use a hand held stick blender and it goes right into the cooking pot. much easier than transferring from the pot to the blender and back again and less clean up.

Can't get my Le Creuset interior clean

For all my LC enameled cookware I use a cleaner made for cleaning ceramic/glass stove cooktops every time I clean them and after every use. Use that as directed, with a gentle scrub (type) kitchen sponge.

Rinse thoroughly. Wipe dry to store.

I have another idea if this doesn't work for you. Just Let me know.

this serves 8

4 dark green RIPE (soft not squishy) avocado
use PROPER measuring spoons for this.
1 tablespoon EMERILS seasoning
1 tablespoon ground pepper
1 tablespoon dried cilantro flakes
1 tablespoon of MRS DASH regular seasoning mix
1 teaspoon of garlic powder (no salt kind!)
1 teaspoon of onion powder (again, no salt kind!)
1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes this is for a KICK of spicy hot, delete this if you don't like it.
1/4 cup of PLAIN sour creme (light sour creme is ok, if you prefer)
1 large LIME cut in half

cut avocados in half take out seed pit
scoop out avocados into LARGE bowl
mash avocado lightly, I like using the 2 fork method for pulling and mashing at the same time.
add the other dry ingredients
stir WELL
taste first BEFORE you add more salt if needed REMEMBER MOST CHIPS ARE SALTED so go light on additional salt ALSO since EMERILS seasoning has salt in it already.
When done mixing well, squeeze lime over prepared guacamole dip.
cover with plastic wrap
chill in fridge for at least 30 mins
uncover, stir again lightly
serve with chips of your choice- the less salty the chips the better!
Enjoy! :)

If you like this recipe, let me know.

Cobb Salad Dip

YUCK!!! who wants to gain 3 pounds during the Super Bowl party?
NOT ME. We are grilling chicken wings soaked in nothing but
Tabasco hot sauce with the Big Green Egg and using Hickory chips to kick the flavor up a notch without adding calories. Celery and Carrot sticks...... then if you want you can use the Light Ranch dressing or LIGHT bleu cheese dressing. You don't have to use
full calorie dips for a condiment, duh! After each "alcohol drink"
drink a glass of diet soda or water to lighten up your caloric intake
through the game. Remain sexy.... even AFTER the big game!

Advice for Despised Laptop Users

hmm. As a person who used to use tips to pay her rent each month.........I'd say that since most are there for the free wi-fi or to eye the opposite sex .... that they should tip AT LEAST $4. dollars per hour, just keep getting refills of coffee if you feel like you have to have service to justify the tip. If you think that $4. dollars per hour is too much perhaps you should finally just get that discounted wi-fi hook up at your house/office or if you're really a cheapskate just hang at your friends place who has wi-fi and let them tend to your refills. Otherwise your just a free-loader and annoyance at the coffeehouses,,,, MR GRINCH!!! :P
