I don’t really know what the Avocado craze is all about! I am not a big fan but the avocraze got me thinking! Got myself an avocado again and was staring at it for inspiration and then it hit me! Since Avocado is very neutral in taste, why not add a zing with pickle! I…

You eat with your eyes first and the visual appeal is more when you add colors to your daily food platter. Much like painting, a food plate is also a canvas ready to be painted with our imagination and creativity.

Mexican Burrito is a well known street food in America and also a complete meal in itself. I love the flavor combination this dish has to offer.
