We didn’t really talk about the weekend yesterday, since it was all about BlogHer Food.

How was yours, did you do anything fun and thrilling? Enquiring minds want to KNOW.

I had my first girl’s night in, like, 1 billion years! I am not even joking.  With working A LOT, I really haven’t had time to make all the friends, so it was SO nice to get me some lady time!

I also learned something about the huberoni.

So, it’s Saturday night.  I’m just finishing up editing some pictures and the hubs is searching Red Box to find a movie for us to watch.  Suddenly, he starts getting really excited about a movie and says that he has found the perfect one, that he REALLY wants to watch.

I wasn’t very stoked, because I figured it was going to be some lame one where a guy in underpants and a cape flies around being all “I’m going to save the world from doom and evil,” and those just aren’t my “thang.”

HOW-EV-ER, the movie he wanted to watch? “The Vow.”

Yes, that one with Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams. Yes, the sappy, romantic movie where Rachel is married to Channing, and then she loses her memory and he is the best hubby EVER, and tries to make her remember him.

I <3 it. It was just surprising coming out my ruff-and-tumble huberoni.

I’ll take it over men flying around in underpants though, that is FO’ SHO’.

So, that’s what we did.

We also ate food, because that is kind of necessary to life right?

I made these babies a while ago, and then I ate them again everyday for ever because they are THAT good.

Avocado is kind of the new trend. Avocado toast (if you follow my Instagram, you will know that I am obsessed with it) and baked eggs in avocado are kind of everywhere. And for good reason because, well, NOM CENTRAL.

These little guys are like a fancy version of the above mentioned snack, but they are secretly SO EASY.  Easy like whoa.

Whatever that means.

There’s avocado, which is always a win. Then you mix in creamy goat cheese (my <3) and soft zucchini with sweet balsamic reduction….and, it just makes sense on your taste buds.

Can I get a HEYO for easy snacks that are full of healthy, make-my-brain happy fats AND yum?

    I am holding you to the payment in cookies – NO LIE!
    The Vow was an awesome movie – bet your huberoni scoured major points with his pick! Have yall seen Dear John? (It’s kinda old-ish, but awesome)
    Taylor, your balsamic reduction sounds so good – but am confused – do both 1/4 cups of balsamic vinegar go in the pot at once? I didn’t see a second addition – or maybe I need another cup of coffee to read it right?…

    • Taylor Kiser says

      Yes! That is such a cute movie! totally love it!
      Ok, thanks for pointing that out – it’s a total typo!! Only 1/4 cup..I deleted the other :) Thanks girl!

  2. says

    I haven’t seen The Vow yet…need to put it on my Netflix list.

    These stuffed avocados are such a fantastic idea. Actually I’ve never even baked avocados this way before, but I think I need to start.

    • Taylor Kiser says

      You must! It is super cute!
      Thank you so much Dara! I can’t believe you haven’t had an avocado baked like this, seriously life changing! :)

  3. says

    I love that movie! And I am so jealous because I can’t currently get avocados :( and I am craving them! These baked avocados look amazing and goat cheese is literally now my favourite type of cheese. Yum all around!

    • Taylor Kiser says

      WHAT?! That is tragic!!
      Goat cheese is my fav too! It’s so creamy and yummy on EVERYTHING! Thank you Jessica! :)

    • Taylor Kiser says

      Faith, we aren’t friends anymore.
      No, I’m kidding…but I think even you’re avocado un-loving self will love these! Cheese fixes all un-likes 😉

    • Taylor Kiser says

      Oh, they are life changing! Hope you love them liz :) Thanks for sharing on Twitter today – you rock!

  4. says

    This looks so yummy! I love all the ingredients separately, so I can only imagine how good they are together! And I’ve never baked an avocado… very curious! :)

  5. Charlotte Moore says

    I don’t eat avocado either. I sure have never heard of it cooked. I did make some dip stuff one time and they all liked it. I barely tasted it. Ha!!!

    • Taylor Kiser says

      Haha thanks Samina! Sometimes these men surprise me! 😀 Have a great wednesday and thanks for poppin’ by!

    • Taylor Kiser says

      You must! It’s such a good “girl” movie (and apparently guys too!?)
      Thanks you for the love and pinning friend! <3

    Sweet Mr FFF! My darling was likewise romantic the other day when he found the new Liam Neeson blow up the world movie for us to watch – I’ll take that over a rom-com any day ;)\
    I’ve been wanting to try baked avocados for ages and this sounds delightful. I might replace the goat’s cheese with feta I think and then keep them all to myself when Mr Nourished Life asks what I’m eating…

    • Taylor Kiser says

      Haha…well Liam Neeson is totally awesome, so I could go a movie with him in it 😉
      Feta would be good too! You must try a baked avocado…seriously, life changing!

    Baked stuffed avocados are one of my FAVORITES. I never even knew how de-freaking-licious this could be until I discovered it as a restaurant a year or so ago and now I want to eat it ALL. THE. TIME. I request this during our cookies and cocktail weekend puh-leeeeez!

    • Taylor Kiser says

      You are so welcome! You should try cracking an egg in the center, and baking it! SO GOOD!
      Or, spread it on toast :) I hope you love it! :)

    Wow, I am such a sucker for avocados and always open to new ways of stuffing my face with them! HOW-EV-ER, I am not sure about baking them… I will certain try it to see! Here in Japan, Mexican medium sized avocados can be had for less than $1. Just curious, how much to day cost where you live? (I am eating as many as possible while still living here because I know I:ll have to deal with higher prices once I go home to the states!)
    Thanks for these great posts!

    • Taylor Kiser says

      Trust me – baked avocados are delicious! :)
      Under $1!! WHAT! I am SO jealous!! Honestly, I don’t pay much attention to prices (I really should) but I know it’s either 2 or 3 for $5!!
      Sorry, to not be much help! But thanks for the love, and please let me know if you try them! :)
