When I began my partnership with Avocados from Mexico I was literally over the moon (okay not literally but that’s basically how it felt). Not only do I LOVE avocados, but for as long as I’ve had this blog, my dream partnership was always to work with an avocado company. It’s a serious perk that this avocado company happen to be from Mexico allowing me to shamelessly drop hints that guacamole will solve all the worlds problems, and non-challantly suggest that all avocado dishes need to be paired with an alcoholic bevvy.

I don’t know about you but I would never show up at a fiesta without my avocados and a bottle of wine, amiright?!

People have asked me if I’m worried about becoming “The Avocado Girl”? I can’t help but laugh in their faces. Nothing would make me happier than to be dubbed “The Avocado Girl”!

Now at this point I’ve arrived back in Toronto and am laying on the couch finishing this post while eating what’s left of these avocados brownies (thanks C….) and dreaming about what future recipes and ideas I have to bring you. All I have to say is that I hope you like avocados because this avocado girl has some serious avoliciousness coming your way.
