Cut avocados in half, remove pit. Scoop out avocado & mash lightly with a fork. Add onions, tomatoes, lime juice, cumin, salt & pepper. Mash again, but don't overdo it! This guacamole should be a little chunky.
On Saturday, May 24th, I'll be participating in the 11th Toronto Timeraiser -- a silent art auction where visitors bid volunteer hours instead of money. Throughout the evening, guests will meet with various non-profit organizations in order to find available volunteer opportunities that meet their needs. Once matches are made, the bidding begins. I am so proud to be a part of this year's event! Here are the details:
Is there any better project than a cookie project?
From start to finish, this painting has been an absolute pleasure. The photoshoot wasn't half bad, either. I sorted through three boxes of cookies in order to find the perfect specimen -- a nice, round cookie with good chocolate-exposure. I like PC's Decadent cookies because they are so relatable. We all know their familiar crumbly crunch, followed by that heavenly melt-in-your-mouth sensation. After a few casualties and a glass of milk, I finally found my star.
Acrylic on Canvas, 36" x 36" (work in progress)
I'm currently putting the finishing touches on this painting, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Who wouldn't want to look at a giant chocolate chip cookie every day? I'm aiming to finish by the end of week... stay tuned for the finished product!
"Tasting Room - Banana," Acrylic on Canvas, 30" x 48"
1 1/2 cups oatmeal, uncooked
2 ripe bananas, mashed with fork until creamy
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. Mix vanilla and cinnamon into the applesauce. Mix applesauce mixture with all other ingredients and let sit for 10 minutes. Drop cookie dough, by spoonfuls, onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet & flatten cookies into rounds. Bake approx. 20-30 minutes, or until golden. Remove from oven & let rest on cookie sheets for 5 minutes, then move to cooling rack. Store in a covered container when completely cool. Eat & enjoy!
The Artist Project 2014 is only 9 days away! I've been working on some new large pieces that will make their big debut at this show. In the coming week, I'll also be finishing up some smaller paintings and drawings that will be sure to satisfy any foodie. Below are some of my larger pieces, which can be seen in person at booth 431!
