Avocado and Egg Salad Recipe

Avocado and Egg Salad Recipe
Perfect for summer BBQs and for company. We recently served this at a dinner party (1/2 an avocado per guest) to rave reviews.


Ingredients
(serves 4)
  • 1 diced avocado (2 if you want to be fancy and serve this inside the shell)
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes with Italian seasoning
  • 1/3 cup feta cheese
  • Diced red onion (just a sprinkling, unless you really love the taste of raw onion!)
  • 2 hard boiled eggs
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise (I use low fat with olive oil)
  • 1/4 cup sour cream (I use nonfat)
  • Generous sprinkling each of Dill, Paprika, Garlic Powder, and Oregano
  • 20 crumbled crackers (Add right before serving) 
How to Make Avocado and Egg Salad
This recipe is so easy peasy, let's learn it through pictures. You're really just throwing everything together in a big bowl.
    We aren't the only ones around here who looove avocado.

    This photo shows "sliced", not "diced". Tsk, tsk!

    You'll want to squeeze out most of the juice. Don't be a dope like me and realize, halfway through, that you should pour the flavorful tomato juice into a jar of tomato sauce, not down the drain!

    Some feta-y goodness.

    Red onion! The first time I made this recipe, I went way overboard and threw in an entire half a red onion, which was overpowering. My Avocado and Egg Salad was still tasty, but expect people to take a step back from you if you choose to go the onion-packed route.

    Next up, it's time for the eggs, mayonnaise, sour cream, and spices. I don't have photos of those last ingredients (perfect for a recipe "through photos") but, hey, aren't my eggs pretty?

    You're almost done! Once everything is mixed up in the bowl, and right before serving, stir in 20 crumbled crackers. I've made this using Saltines and Ritz crackers and both ways are delicious.

    Wasn't that so simple? If you're feeling fancy, you can use the avocado shells as bowls for your Avocado and Egg Salad. So much more impressive than a paper plate!

    A Blogger's Before & After Guide to Chemical Peels

    A Handy "Before & After" Guide to Chemical Peels - 6/25/17 Update
    Since writing my chemical peel blog review back in 2013, I've had quite a few Jessner peels (my favorite) and TCA peels. However, I've saved a ton of money over the past 6 months by doing my own chemical peels at home. At my last professional peel, I made a note of the product being used and did some research when I got home. I was able to buy the exact same one, Dermalure Jessner Solution Acid Peel 14%, from Amazon for less than the cost of a single peel. I also use Dermalure's AHA/BHA Acne Cleanser. (Apply this before the Jessner.) It's self-neutralizing, despite what the Amazon listing says, and couldn't be simpler. That said...
    I'm not sure I'd recommend this to a chemical peel newbie, as you're already nervous enough the first time without the added worry of doing it yourself, but it's so convenient (and cost effective!) once you're comfortable with the chemica…

    Dream Home Dreaming

    *Update*
    We've finally broken ground on our mountain dream home! Can you believe it? Even more surprising, we actually managed to work a good chunk of this list into our actual design. See below for details.

    Original post from 2013:

    Sexy Nerd wants to move up building our dream home to yesterday. I still don't know what I want though! Yes, it's difficult to decide on things like paint colors, flooring, and appliances. My problem is a bit worse.

    Should we build one of those adorable 500 square feet mini houses? A (budget-friendly) mansion? A charming stone cottage?

    Ultra-modern??

    The internet makes it easy to find great design ideas for building our dream house. The downside is that all my favorite photos combine to make an overpriced, mismatched conglomeration.

    According to my Pinterest account, my dream house has:

    ...a dramatic front entrance...

    6/25/17 Update: Our entrance is dramatic - and bright, sunshine yellow!
     ...a charming brick fireplace...
