Avocado is one of my favorite foods. If it wasn’t for the little fact that avocados are very high in fat and too much isn’t good for you, I’d eat avocado with every meal.

Cali Baguette Express recently opened a location on Convoy, to my great excitement.

I first read of its opening on mmm-yoso. You can read mmm-yoso’s visit here.

Cali Baguette Express is a chain of restaurants that offer Vietnamese Banh Mi sandwiches. To those who’ve never had a banh mi, generally, banh mi sandwiches consist of a french baguette filled with some meat filling, pickled daikon and carrots, cucumbers, chili peppers, cilantro and mayonnaise. The combination may sound a little odd to those who have never had a banh mi, but the toppings work well together to create a delicious sandwich.

While Cali Baguette Express does not necessarily serve the best banh mi sandwiches, the sandwiches are made quickly (hence the name) and the quality is pretty consistent.

Pictures can be deceiving. Here are three little cupcakes innocently perched. They don’t reflect the frustrating hours before the final product: the three batches of screwed up frosting, the swearing, the screaming, the goopy mess. I’ll go into more of that later.

I’ve had oreos on the brain a lot lately and have been trying to come up with different oreo dessert options. I really loved my oreo cupcakes, which were chocolate cupcakes, filled with an oreo whipped cream frosting both inside and on top. I got an idea to make a cookies and cream based cupcake from one of my readers, Sandy.
