My burrito bowl 1/9/16

I had so many plans to make an "official" burrito bowl, hence the recipes I've posted previously. I was really craving another "taco salad burrito" but I promised myself I'd attempt to make a burrito bowl and voila!

Simple Ingredients: spicy guacamole & black beans from Aldi, lime juice & tomatoes from Giant Eagle, Cabot lactose free cheddar cheese, mild pico de gallo, & shredded lettuce from Walmart, 0% Chobani greek yogurt from Marc's and last but not least brown Success Rice in a bag (rice in bags is not my usual but I'll take it if I don't have to wait 45 mins!) from Bj's Wholesale.  

I was too lazy to get a regular pot so I grabbed the pan and I actually like this method better.

And the layering begins. I didn't look at any of the recipes I saved, looked up, or posted so I winged it.  Brown rice, guacamole, black beans (I did heat them up)

Splashes of lime juice as I went along. Pico de gallo with the juice. I added extra tomatoes to the pico de gallo. Shredded lettuce (which I had no idea where to put so it ended up around the tomatoes)

Finally, I put a large dollop of greek yogurt on top, shaved cabot on top of that, it was a little plan so I added more black beans to jazz it up and no it still didn't the way I anticipated it would lol! 

Much better from the side! :-D

Ok, so these two pictures are the encore to the above pic. It was really really good! You see I was not going for presentation. I think it actually tasted better with the lettuce more towards the bottom.

Sometimes you need to take away from meat, even non red meat, let your body rest.

Hough Bakery - butter cookies

Hough Bakery By Gail Greenberg&Diane Rolfe Hough Bakery was an integral part of me and my family's lives, (most people in Cleveland for that matter) I was heartbroken when they closed. I have always remembered the cookies and doughnuts from this magical bakery. Their products were like nothing I had ever had before (and it was extra magical because I was so little/young) I have been searching for about 30 years for something similar - no luck... but, thank goodness there are a few recipes floating around the internet! Unfortunately even with Archie's being open, my food afflictions will not allow me to enjoy those old time favorites. Luckily, converting is what I do and that's what this site is about so I will switch some things around and see how it turns out! The recipe below is just ONE of my all time favorites, please enjoy! Memories of a signature blue-and-white, string-tied cake box filled with a streusel coffee cake, hot cross buns, sticky pecan rolls, coconut cho…
