I think I ‘m a pretty good cook and over the years I have passed on my culinary hints and tips to daughter Katy. Even though we use the same recipes there are some things that she makes better than me! Her guacamole is outstanding. I’ve watched her make it and I think I do the same things she does but hands down, hers is always better than mine. Go figure. Maybe it’s because food that someone else makes for you, always tastes better.
Katy’s Best Guacamole
- 4 large ripe Hass Avocados – peeled-mashed with a fork
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh tomato
- 1/4 cup minced red onion
- 2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice or more to taste
- 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
- 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- A few shakes of Adobo seasoning (a traditional Latin blend of salt, garlic, pepper and oregano – go lightly as it is salty)
- Mix, chill and enjoy!

We are also Holland Bowl Mill Affiliates. The 15 inch Holland Bowl Mill Cherry fruit bowl has a permanent home on our kitchen island. It’s beautiful and useful. The heart shaped bowl makes me happy – I love everything heart shaped! We use our 15 inch Beechwood & cherry bowl (his and her’s) to chop our salads everyday. Eating a salad for one meal every day helped me lose weight and become a size 4. I still eat a salad for one meal a day but now it’s a Big Beautiful Chopped salad and it helps me stay a size 4! See the Chopped Salad Blog Post to find out how you can incorporate a chopped salad into your daily food plan and how you can get a free mezzaluna knife with your Holland Bowl order when you use our affiliate link as well as free engraving and free shipping.
