Avocado Caprese Salad (Recipe by Marina)
This is a classic salad that is best made with great ingredients and organic produce. I added in avocado to make it even better and avocado oil for a crisp, light finish that’s even healthier than olive oil. To find avocado oil, visit the banner on my homepage.
After getting back from my New Year trip to Guatemala, I was craving California cuisine when a friend asked me, “What is California cuisine?”
In my opinion, California cuisine is anything that uses the fresh produce that is abundant to this area of the world. A lot of avocado, a lot of tomato, some wine, and a lot of clean flavors.
I made this couscous salad and lemon chicken my first day back.

Homemade Shakshouka aka Tomato Sauce Poached Eggs (Recipe by Marina)
Traditionally, shakshouka is a dish of Middle Eastern descent, which is made up of eggs poached in a sauce of tomatoes, chili peppers, onions, and often spiced with cumin. It’s really popular in Israel and many Israelis have taken this dish abroad to their expat restaurants. In fact, that is exactly how I came upon it.
While my parents were vacationing in the Carribean, they came upon an Israeli restaurant that served this dish for breakfast. My mother loved it and was able to recreate it upon her return. I then stole it from her and have made my own version of it. While it is typically baked in the oven, slowly, over a period of twenty minutes, I have been able to get the same results stove-top in under ten.
Here’s my version of Shakshouka.
So so so delicious! Try it!

This is a beautiful and delicious dish. Try it!
