Top Chef?

So I'm watching Top Chef: Masters, and I realized that my delicious din, cooked tonight, was something I could talk about on here. I also feel odd not blogging for 10 days, it feels like it's been a lot longer, since I've been cooking and there was a whole week of actual menus that I didn't share and....
I'm bad. I know, I'm bad.
I've made fried chicken, biscuits and gravy, roast chicken, parmesan crusted chicken, roast pork, carbonara, a blackberry tart, flank steak with chimichurri.....
And tonight.
Tonight, I made....
That's a fried egg with blackbean cakes and avocado cream.
If you make this dish for only one reason, you should make it for the avocado cream. I don't even like sour cream, and yet when you combine avocado, parsley (me +cilantro = bleh) sour cream, lime juice, and salt. Make sure your avocado is very ripe, because you want the smoothest, creamiest sauce possible.
This is fantastic. Make it. For brunch. For dinner. For whatever. Just make this. Please?

And I promise I'll blog better. Now that I'm getting some energy back, and once it stops raining, I'll feel better.

I wouldn't lie to you.


  1. I'm drooling here, Josie. You're KILLING me.

  2. Yum.

    Add me to the list of cilantro-haters, too. Do you find that it tastes soapy?

  3. We want more noms! Bring back Joh!

  4. Adi - Make this as soon as you can. Stick to the serving size, and use a tablespoon of it on something. Mmmmm.
    Adele -- YES!! Did you know it's an intolerance/allergy? We lack an enzyme! There is scientific proof!!! The soapy taste is a sign for us not to eat it.
    Lyns - I'm back. I promise. Coming up - roasted tomato/red pepper soup. From scratch. No joke.

  5. can I demand/request that you also blog about your chimichurri? and blackberry tart? please?
