I know I have said this quite a number of times that I am sorry for MIA. Honestly I am and this is the last time I will be saying it too. I love food blogging but the lack of some basic resources, morale and motivation meant I had to do away with one of the things I love most. Never mind, I am back now and better, this time I am going nowhere.

I have been working tirelessly for the past couple of months improving my food photography. Remember, my excuse in the past have been the UK weather. I can’t make such excuse anymore as I am now able to work with any source of lighting I see or get.

This last couple of months I made up my mind and challenged myself to make food blogging work for me. Why give up on something so good when I haven’t even given in my all. I am happy to say I have my recipes on lock-down but I can’t say the same for my food pictures and that is the reason why I pushed myself to do me and to stop the excuses.

I have been motivated by some couple of women who are killing it in their crafts and making what they have to work for them. This is my year to try and make it work too. A big thank you to my new and especially returning readers. I promise to make it work this time and give you guys nothing but yummy and easy to recreate recipes as I have in the past.

This month, I have decided to make series of 15 to 30 minutes meal to ease us back to food blogging (I said us because i believe we are in this together) Back to today’s avocado egg salad on toast, this recipe is very easy that I even make it at work. I go to work with hard boiled eggs and mix in mashed avocado, add some salads, salt and pepper. I honestly get people going wow! when they see me having my avocado egg salad. 

Can I make this a day ahead? to be honest it would only take you 10 to 15 minutes to make this recipe, so I highly recommend you make it on the day you want to eat it. You should also bear in mind that avocado reacts to oxygen and that is why it changes colour. Lets keep it green and nice looking!

How hard boiled should the egg be? I recommend boiling the eggs between 8 to 10 minutes max, put the eggs in cold water to stop it from cooking further. Nothing beats melt-in-the mouth yolk

Lets talk about the other ingredients: For this recipe, I have used cress salad, sea salt, black pepper and chilli flakes. You can use other herbs of choice like fresh parsley, dill, basil or chive to make your avocado egg salad. Another option which I didn’t do and rarely do is the addition of lime but feel free to add this to yours.
