People take their guacamole very seriously. Remember PeaGate? That’s how we’ll always think of the traumatizing 2015 incident that occured when The New York Times added English peas to their guacamole and basically blew up the internet — even President Obama spoke out against the offensive recipe. But there are things worse than peas, as TikTok has discovered after uncovering one of Martha Stewart’s recipes for guacamole.

@marthastewart

Happy Cinco de Mayo! How are you celebrating? Recipe link in bio. #cincodemayo #margarita#tequila #mexicanfood #may5 #empanadas #foodtiktok #marthastewart #marthatok #learnfrommartha #fyp#quacoclock #holyguacamole

♬ original sound – Martha Stewart

Stewart shared her guacamole recipe in a TikTok video on May 5th (for Cinco de Mayo), and while some would balk at the inclusion of cherry tomatoes, that’s not even the most glaringly strange addition to her avocado dip. It’s the fact that Stewart also adds some hard-boiled egg to the mix in her molcajete (Mexican mortar and pestle) that got people completely riled up.

But when one fan commented, “Hard boiled egg? In the guac?! Serious? No!!!” Stewart responded as only she knows how — with another entertaining video.

Stewart’s defense of her egg-amole was pretty strong. “You ask why eggs, hard-boiled eggs, are in my guacamole? ‘Cause I like it!” she said. “I have 300 chickens laying eggs every single day,” she went on. “It’s a good way to use up a little bit of those eggs.” We may not have 300 chickens, but we do often have a couple of dozen eggs in the fridge and a fully loaded DASH egg cooker, so we can kind of relate. Kind of.

The pairing of avocado and egg is also apparently not that uncommon. Commenters from Venezuela, El Salvador, and Nicaragua said that they make guac with eggs, while on the other end of the spectrum, someone said that they add avocado to their egg salad.

Another thing the recipe has going for it is that the addition of eggs boosts the guacamole’s protein content. Honestly, if you’re the type to enjoy avocado toast with egg in the morning, you could do worse than simply spreading on some of Stewart’s egg guac. But maybe we need to come up with a better name for it than “egg guac” if it ever stands a chance among the hyper-crytical TikTok crowd.

Trader Joe's New Seasoning Blend Is Garlicky, Salty & Based On Your Favorite Burger Topping https://www.sheknows.com/food-and-recipes/articles/2569998/trader-joes-dill-pickle-seasoning/ https://www.sheknows.com/food-and-recipes/articles/2569998/trader-joes-dill-pickle-seasoning/#respond Thu, 19 May 2022 17:21:59 +0000 https://www.sheknows.com/?p=2569998 If you purchase an independently reviewed product or service through a link on our website, SheKnows may receive an affiliate commission.

For years we’ve relied on Trader Joe’s as our favorite spot to shop for interesting beverages, delicious frozen meals, and unique snacks. But we never thought it would one day become our go-to store for finding spices and seasonings. It’s not that they never sold spices before, but ever since the wild success of their Everything But the Bagel Seasoning, it seems like TJ’s has been innovating in turbo mode to create seasoning blends based on some of our favorite foods, from elotes to Green Goddess dressing. But their newest seasoning, which is in stores just in time for summer, might just be the most unique and craveable yet: dill pickle seasoning.

Trader Joe’s Seasoning In a Pickle Seasoning Blend was brought to our attention by the aptly named Instagram account TraderJoesObsessed. Each bottle of it costs just $2.49, so even if you aren’t a huge pickle head (is that what we’re calling ourselves now?) you’ve got nothing to lose by trying some.

Trader Joe’s alsready has some pickle flavored snacks (like popcorn and chips), but now you can pickle basically any snack. We have a secret hoard of their plain Crispy Crunchy Mochi Rice Nuggets (we’ve been traumatized by past product discontinuations so we stocked up) that would be amazing with a hit of dill pickle flavor, and we can only imagine how delicious the Seasoning in a Pickle would be on chicken and burgers on the grill.

If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s near you, but are still desperate to pickle-fy everything that passes through your lips, we don’t blame you. Thankfully, you can find other brands of dill pickle seasoning on Amazon. This brand is intended to be used for popcorn, but you can really sprinkle Kernels Dill Pickle Popcorn Seasoning on anything.

We also found June Moon Spice Company Dill Pickle Wing Seasoning. Once again, we think this blend of salty garlic, onion, and dill flavors would be delicious on pretty much any savory food.

Whether you’re adding it to a batch of potato salad for a summer bbq, sprinkling some over your favorite crunchy snack, or seasoning up a batch of chicken for the grill, dill pickle seasoning is the secret ingredient your kitchen needs this summer.

Aldi's Affordable New Vintage-Style Appliances Look Like Smeg For Way Less https://www.sheknows.com/food-and-recipes/articles/2569930/aldi-retro-appliances-smeg-dupe/ https://www.sheknows.com/food-and-recipes/articles/2569930/aldi-retro-appliances-smeg-dupe/#respond Thu, 19 May 2022 15:53:20 +0000 https://www.sheknows.com/?p=2569930 If you purchase an independently reviewed product or service through a link on our website, SheKnows may receive an affiliate commission.

Have you ever looked around at your kitchen and wondered, “do toaster, blender, and other kitchen appliance companies have a personal vendetta against visually pleasing design?” Because we have. It seems like when it comes to appliances, you can choose between something affordable but hideous, or something gorgeous…with a price tag more suited to a new sofa than a new citrus juicer. Thankfully, it seems like someone at Aldi has at least a cursory understanding of what the people want. Aldi has a new collection of gorgeous vintage-style appliances that remind us of some of our favorite high-end brands (*cough* Smeg *cough*), but with prices we can actually afford.

Aldi’s new brand of home appliances is Ambiano, and everything is under $40. They come in two colorways — cream and teal — and have black and metal accents, giving each item a high-end look.

You can even order Aldi’s new vintage appliances on Instacart. These are some of our favorite new appliances from their Ambiano line.

If you’ve never used an electric kettle before, you don’t know what you’ve been missing. They’re so much faster than a stove-top kettle, use less energy, and this one is so stylish, you won’t mind leaving it on the countertop.

That’s not all they’re offering. You can also find a retro electric juicer, a coffee maker, and even an electric hard-boiled egg maker in the Ambiano collection at Aldi. You can check out all of the products available on Instacart, or head to your local Aldi and check out the home goods aisle there for these appliances, and who knows what other surprises.

This Boxed Lemon Pound Cake Mix from Aldi is Getting Rave Reviews — But It's Only Available for a Limited Time https://www.sheknows.com/food-and-recipes/articles/2568834/aldi-boxed-lemon-pound-cake-mix-limited-time/ https://www.sheknows.com/food-and-recipes/articles/2568834/aldi-boxed-lemon-pound-cake-mix-limited-time/#respond Tue, 17 May 2022 14:19:28 +0000 https://www.sheknows.com/?p=2568834 If you purchase an independently reviewed product or service through a link on our website, SheKnows may receive an affiliate commission.

To put it simply, everything is better with lemon. The summer citrus fruit looks beautiful as a dinner plate pattern, elevates any pasta recipe and of course — it tastes amazing in the form of a dessert. If you’ve been waiting to satisfy any sweet lemon cravings, Aldi’s got you covered. The fan-favorite grocery store is selling a Baker’s Corner Lemon Pound Cake Mix for a limited time, and it’s already winning Aldi shoppers over with its simplicity and taste.

The lemon pound cake mix from Aldi is naturally flavored, and includes a lemon glaze mix pouch to drizzle on top of the cake once it’s done. The 16.5 ounce box will cost you only $2.49, which is a small price to pay for some serious lemon-y goodness. Aldi fan account @aldi.is.my.jam made the boxed cake mix to see for herself. “For being a boxed mix it turned out fantastic!” she wrote on her post featuring the seasonal product. “My daughter loved it!” The content creator advised not to over mix the batter too much, to keep its moistness and flavor in tact.

If you can’t snag a box of your own in-store, the Baker’s Corner Lemon Pound Cake Mix is available on Instacart for the same price.

According to Giada De Laurentiis, This Is The Italian Condiment You'll Be Reaching For All Summer https://www.sheknows.com/food-and-recipes/articles/2567877/giada-de-laurentiis-cherry-balsamic/ https://www.sheknows.com/food-and-recipes/articles/2567877/giada-de-laurentiis-cherry-balsamic/#respond Fri, 13 May 2022 16:08:11 +0000 https://www.sheknows.com/?p=2567877 If you purchase an independently reviewed product or service through a link on our website, SheKnows may receive an affiliate commission.

There aren’t a lot of condiments that can be used for both dinner and dessert, but Giada De Laurentiis wants to change all that. Would you put barbecue sauce on cupcakes? Probably not. Would you put marshmallow fluff on grilled ribs? Also probably not. But there’s an Italian condiment that you can pair with cupcakes, grilled ribs, and yes, even marshmallow fluff, and De Laurentiis is spreading the word. It’s Italian Cherry Balsamic, and it’s the bottle you’re going to be reaching for while cooking all your summer favorites.

Specifically, De Laurentiis says that this syrupy cherry vinegar is delicious on gelato, panna cotta, and added to buttercream frosting. But it’s not just for sweet desserts. It’s amazing drizzled over grilled chicken or used as a glaze for roasted salmon

She recommends Ponti Cherry Condiment, which is a blend of grape must, concentrated black cherry juice, and apple vinegar. It’s part of the brand’s “rich and creamy” line, which refers to the texture and flavor of the condiment. It’s thick and syrupy, tart and sweet, and the secret ingredient your marinades, barbecue sauce, and salad dressing have been missing.

If you really want to treat yourself, you could even upgrade to this dark cherry balsamic from Massimo Bottura, the three Michelin-starred Italian restaurateur and chef. It’s actually aged in cherry wood barrels, and pairs balsamic vinegar of Modena with Vignola cherries. According to the reviews, it’s thick and gooey, and tastes great on everything from vanilla ice cream to Parmigiano Reggiano and duck.

If you’re not a huge fan of cherries, you could also try a raspberry balsamic. It can be used in all of the same sweet and savory applications as De Laurentiis’ recommended cherry vinegar — just look for one made with real raspberry juice, like this bottle from Filippo Berio.

Comfort food season, we’re kissing you goodbye. It’s summer, which means it’s time to brighten up and refresh our kitchens. It starts with the ingredients, as the best spring and summer produce finally makes its way to farmer’s markets and grocery stores, but the summer refresh for your kitchen shouldn’t stop there. It’s also time to reorganize and replenish, and to add some summery color to your home. Thankfully, Aldi knows it’s time too, and they just released a whole slew of pretty and functional summer kitchen accessories that are all under $20.

First up? Floral resin knife sets from Crofton. Each set includes six knives and six sheaths to keep the blades protected and sharp when they’re being stores. They remind us of the Pioneer Woman’s Sweet Romance 3-Piece Stainless Steel Knife Sets, which are a pretty dupe if you don’t live near an Aldi.

We like to keep our freezer stocked with easy, on-the-go meal options for busy days when we just don’t have time to cook. But we can’t subsist on Trader Joe’s Chickenless Mandarin Orange Morsels and frozen burritos exclusively, so we’re always looking for new products to add to our stash. When we saw a video from TikTok account CostcoBuys showing that Costco is now selling a pack of high-protein crustless peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that are basically the adult’s answer to Uncrustables, we got seriously excited.

@costcobuys

WEEKLY COSTCO BUYS! Lots of good finds! 😍 #costco

♬ Up – Movie Theme – Giampaolo Pasquile

For those who would say “can’t you just make yourself a sandwich?” we would say, yeah, in a perfect world. Unfortunately, it’s not a perfect world; fortunately, Costco is there to help bridge the gap for us so we can still hoover down sandwiches when the hunger pangs hit and we’re busy trying to work, watch the kids, and stay energized, and simply don’t have the time to deal with a sticky peanut butter knife.

The PB + J Crustless Sandwiches with Grape Jelly come in an 18-pack for just $10.99, and each serving has 10 grams of protein to fuel you through your day. You just have to take one out of the freezer and let it thaw before eating, so throw a couple in the fridge each morning, and you’ve got an easy snack to reach for during the day.

If you don’t have a Costco membership but are still dedicated to the crust-free sandwich life, there is a handly tool that can help you. You can actually buy a sandwich cutter online. It cuts the crusts off of your sandwich and, more importantly, seals the edges.

You can make a big batch, throw them in the freezer, and even though it took more work, it’s a crustless sandwich solution for those without a Costco membership.
