Absolutely Avocados + A Giveaway

Absolutely Avocados…

is officially published and it’s all over the country, basically everywhere books are sold. I can’t believe the big day is finally here. I’m so pumped. Jazzed. Over the moon. And giddy! I will be at Barnes and Noble waiting for them to open their doors so I can run in and take pics of me and Absolutely Avocados 🙂 If you pre-ordered a copy it’s probably going to be dropped at your doorstep any hour now if it didn’t already show up early yesterday.

It’s basically everything from breakfast to dinner and even dessert – all with avocados!

Can you tell that I’m excited. It’s like my little baby is finally here. 400+ avocados later and HOURS of serious recipe testing and it’s out there for ya’ll to see!
