Instructions
Crust
  1. For crust: Heat oven to 375.
  2. Add vanilla wafers to a food processor and pulse mixture into fine crumbs.
  3. Pour crumbs into a shallow pie dish. Pour melted butter over the crumbs.
  4. Using your hand and the back of a spoon or the bottom of a measuring cup, evenly press the crumbs into pie plate and up the sides to create a crust.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven. (If crust has fallen off the sides, you have about a 10-15 second window to use a spoon and press it back up before it cools.) Allow to cool completely.
Filling
  1. In a bowl, whisk together egg yolks, lemon juice and sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Pour into crust.
  2. Bake 15 minutes or until the filling is set. Remove and cool for 2 hours.
  3. Top with whipped topping and refrigerate for 2 hours. Decorate with raspberries before serving.
Recipe Notes

Cheater idea: To speed preparation, use a store-bought graham cracker crust and skip ahead to the filling instructions.

When avocado toast came out, I thought it was trendy and ridiculous, but I have fallen in love with it and make it at home all the time. It’s nourishing and a good choice for the health-conscious mom. Plus, it keeps me full for a long time.

Ingredients
Servings:
Instructions
  1. Prepare two pieces of toast. (I like to use good bakery bread, but regular grocery store bread will do, too.)
  2. Cut avocado in half, remove pit and smash with a fork.
  3. Add cumin and garlic salt. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.
  4. Spread avocado mixture on toast.
  5. Fry two eggs to your liking (I prefer the yolk runny because it’s buttery and makes this a rich dish).
  6. Place the eggs on avocado toast, sprinkle with green onion and serve.
Recipe Notes

Variations: I make avocado toast a variety of ways. You can add sun-dried tomatoes and goat cheese to the recipe above. Sometimes I make scrambled eggs on toast and top it with chopped tomatoes, crumbled bacon and one tablespoon of leftover corn. I’ve made avocado toast Benedict by adding hollandaise sauce. Once, I topped it with scrambled eggs, salsa, black beans and cilantro. Just have fun with it.
