Guacamole from Oaxaca

Guacamole from Oaxaca by John Spottiswood

This is an easy to make, flavorful, and slightly spicy guacamole. Previously I never blended the onion, garlic and cilantro into a puree as this calls for, and I think it does a better job of distributing the flavors evenly. It also reduces the amount of fine mincing required. Even if you've got a trusted guacamole recipe, you…

Allergy-Friendly Vegan Apple Cinnamon & Raisin Muffins by The Blender Girl

I just don't think you can go wrong with the combination of apples, cinnamon and raisins. In fact, if you are baking egg-free sweet breads, cakes and muffins, apples are one of your best culinary friends.
