Bacon, Lettuce, Avocado and Tomato Sandwiches (AKA the BLAT)

Bacon, Lettuce, Avocado and Tomato Sandwiches (AKA the BLAT)

| September 3, 2011 | 7 Comments

Every time I look at this sandwich, my mind goes blank and I start to salivate a little. It’s not just a BLT — it’s something to behold: creamy, crispy, salty, sweet and juicy. The mind blankness makes it hard to write … let alone come up with some entertaining introduction. So, let’s pretend that […]

When my power went out on Sunday and I couldn’t work on Monday and Tuesday, it wasn’t a restful few days vacation. There was the stress of having no power and no running water, the worry about the kids safety and health and the extreme concern over my job and freelance writing. It was unsettling, […]

Today’s post was planned, started and scheduled in my planner. The photographs were taken and edited, just awaiting uploading. But then something happened. This morning, Paige pulled out a vintage Barbie cookbook I picked up at a book sale last year. She carried it around the house. And after reading a thick stack of Dr. […]

When my husband and I moved to our town, I didn’t realize what a small town we were moving to. I mean, in theory, I knew. The main street is a small drag with a few well-frequented businesses. The school district has neighborhood schools, which all seem a stone’s throw away from where the kids […]

This pasta is a step out of the ordinary for me. It’s rare that I make a pound of pasta for the four of us. Usually I am a half-pound-serves-four girl, but when I was making this, I decided to indulge. Good thing I did. The kids went crazy for this pasta, each having a […]

This morning we awoke to the tsk-tsk sounds of sleet falling outside. My dogs, who adore going outside early in the morning in the spring, summer and fall, quickly went back to bed when they saw it coming down. Clearly, winter is coming (a fact that intellectually makes sense, but practically really doesn’t hit you […]

Last December, I had this amazing epiphany when I made Cream Biscuits for the first time. It wasn’t the first time I made biscuits, but it was the first time that it dawned on me how easy it is to make biscuits from scratch. Soon I was making Whole Wheat Biscuits on a regular basis. […]

Every spring I wait excitedly, checking websites and reading newspapers, for the local farmers’ markets to open. While I know that many of my fellow local food-loving compatriots seek out and enjoy local everything all year round, I get a special joy from walking between stands at my favorite markets and selecting different veggies and […]

Transforming Leftovers: Chicken Bacon Pizza

Do you have a pizza stone? I adore mine. It’s perfect for everything from making pizza to baking bread. Mine is well seasoned from lots of use, bearing little black marks like badges of honor where past pizzas and rolls have puffed and baked. It’s been awhile since I made pizza at home, but this […]

A local deli makes this massive, delightful sandwich called Amanda’s Big Mouth. It’s pastrami, cheddar, bacon, onions, lettuce, tomato, hot sauce and thousand island dressing (I skip the dressing)—and it’s amazing. It’s the kind of sandwich you eat when you are starving … or when you just want something amazing when you are enjoying a […]
