For French Fridays with Dorie, I waited a day late to make this recipe so I could share it with friends. Every year we go to this event which includes a picnic dinner and fireworks. We also celebrate our dear friend’s birthday which this year happens to be on the event so a cake was in order for dessert.
Dorie’s recipe for guacamole included red bell pepper, lime, red onion, jalapeno, cherry tomatoes, cilantro and of course avocado. I didn’t have any cilantro so I just left it out.
My husband and son do not like guacamole so my husband made salsa. There were a few jokes while making our separate appetizers. We got thumbs up for the guacamole recipe. I really liked the addition of the lime zest. I read fellow Dorista’s reviews and used less lime juice.
To finish our meal off I made Big Bill’s Carrot Cake from Dorie’s Baking From My Home To Yours. It was delicious but definitely not a light cake with 3 layers and cream cheese frosting.
No matter where you are in the world, I hope you enjoy some fireworks this summer.
