For a long, long time, I thought I didn’t like guacamole. In fact, I knew I didn’t like it. I had tried a store-bought kind once, and never wanted to try it again afterwards. It’s ironic considering I eat it at least once a week now.

Hi everyone, I have two announcements for you today! The first one is that for the rest of the summer (due to my internship) I will only be posting one recipe per week, on Wednesdays, instead of three.

The second one is that I will now be able to spend even more time on the recipes that I will share with you. So without further due, I present to you my new culinary crush: shaved asparagus salad!

Happy belated Easter everyone! It’s good to be back. I actually went to Nashville last week and got to discover Southern cuisine, which was absolutely delicious! Shrimp & grits, sticky buns and chicken were definitely the way to go. However, it is on the “heavier” side of the food spectrum and I felt like I needed something fresh, with plenty of vegetables for lunch today! Introducing my new obsession: cauliflower couscous!
