snacks for meals


spicy potato wedges with cheddar and garlic yogurt, chunky guacamole with whole wheat toast.

nothing crazy ambitious today, just some snacks overflowing with my favorite flavors. piping hot russet potatoes with a spicy crust of cumin, chili powder, cayenne, and many other spices. dipped into chilled zesty yogurt, a healthy play off the potatoes-with-sour-cream idea. finally melty bits of cheddar round out the texture of the decadent dish. crispy, fluffy toast piled high with green spread. guacamole stands as a rich manifest of the timeless interlude of salt and lime, enhanced by the earthy tones of over-ripe avocados. red onions and tomatoes cut through the initial creamy sensation, the bite nuanced by the sharpness of the lime.

these comfort foods are simple mixes of great, classic flavors. everyday food for everyday people!
