Quarantine Eating: What have you perfected or grown tired of?

Updated: Aug 23

We've all been quarantining, hopefully, and I don't know about you but it's forced me to cook more than usual. Which is saying a lot because I cook often. I don't only bake either, if you follow my instagram feed, @chicfoodist, I also love to cook. I've shared this recipe before and it's simply amazing, to be short and frank. My quarantine perfection, Avocado Toast. Drop your perfections or tired of story and pics. If you decide to give this recipe a try, upload your pics and tell me how you like it.

Recipe: Sourdough baguette, 2 eggs, 1 tomato, 1 avocado (1/2 for each slice of bread), arugula, parmesan cheese (grated), red pepper flakes, capers, salt & pepper.


1.Cut sourdough baguette into size of toast you desire.

2.Cut the section in half and lightly toast.

3.Place cold water in a small pot and bring to a simmer.
