This past weekend I was looking through my cookbooks for some tasty new recipes to try and was excited to find this special bonus project, for a beautiful avocado plant, right beside the Chunky Guacamole recipe in my The Clueless Vegetarian cookbook.
I’ve enjoyed Evelyn Raab’s cookbooks since my first, Clueless in the Kitchen, which was a great way to ease into cooking, with a lot of recipes I still enjoy making, and now to find this fun plant extra is another reason to love her books.
I just happened to have finished an avocado before stumbling upon this so I’m giving my own avocado plant a try. Now all it needs is time and water top-ups. Fingers crossed…
A great project to try while in self isolation! More details in the image below if you’d like to start your own…

Welcome to the first blog post directly on hollymain.com. I couldn’t think of a better way to begin than with One Good Thing.
With the news filled with COVID-19 and uncertainty, author Joyce Grant, co-founder and News Director of Teaching Kids News, has been posting “one good thing,” three to five times a week online with the idea to uplift, without overwhelming. Calm, soothe and inspire. Bring art, ideas and light to our young readers and resources to the people who are looking after them.
I was happy to have my party shark illustration take part in the latest article One Good Thing: Shark Cam highlighting the live shark cam at the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California, USA. Check out the full article (and more good things) at teachingkidsnews.com.
