I’ve been road tripping around Northern California all month (have you been following me on Instagram?) and as the weeks have passed, I’ve really been enjoying the change of seasons.

I have a new favorite guacamole. It’s hard to pry my greedy hands away from my previous favorite, Grapefruit Guacamole (especially with my garden laden with grapefruits and avocados right now), but I have to say that this concoction kind of tops it. I’ve always been a fan of cooked avocado (as you might remember […]
