    How innovative! Hey I have a good idea. Consider applying for a patent. I'm sure it will snag you a boatload of money.

    This was a super avocado recipe and a great way to incorporate some protein. Loved it and will probably make it during the winter in the oven as well.

    This grilled avocado recipe was just as good as I expected and it's such a creative way to serve them. I made a couple of minor changes to the topping -- I used green onions vs. regular and I added a little dollop of sour cream to the top. Made for "For Your Consideration" tag game.

    Served this last nite with grilled chicken and it was delicious!!! The flavors were so refreshing and had tons of flavor!! Followed the recipe to the T and wouldn't change a thing!! This will be made often!!!


I love I get paid to read snail mail and email. It is an awesome free portal where you get paid for what you are already doing on the web. I live in Utah with my husband and son. They are my taste testers and are very happy that I love to cook. During the summer we camp and cook via dutch oven. My falls and springs are filled with canning. When I am actually working I do medical coding from home so I can take care of my son. One thing I appreciate about Zaar is it keeps me from saying. <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"width=100%> <img src=""> <img src="">
