My love for avocados developed later in life. As I child, I used to watch in horror as my mother dressed them in olive oil, salt and pepper and then savored them slowly. She was always confident that I would become an avocado lover just like her. Since our move to California, they've become a regular 'off the counter'staple, either served as my Mom would eat them, mashed into fresh guacamole, or used in recipes like the ones above.
I love living in avocado country!
