Avocado Croutons

True story: I cut into an avocado that I thought was ready to be mashed onto toast, but it wasn’t. Usually I’m better than this. I struggled with what to do. I knew that if I put it back into the fridge, it wouldn’t ever reach its max potential, as it had already been exposed…

Pear, Mozzarella and Caramelized Onion Flatbread

Are you a human? Well then this recipe is for you! Because, NO ONE that I know and respect dislikes pizza. Honestly, if someone tells you they don’t like pizza, they’re lying. Don’t trust them. Ordering pizza has never really been something that I do very often. I guess because I don’t think about it….
