Easy Homemade Guacamole

homemade guacamole_twine and braids

Quick and easy homemade guacamole recipe coming your way!  Confession: I only recently started enjoying guacamole, or avocados for that matter.  I’ve really been trying to love them but its been an acquired taste for me.  Guacamole was something I was able to get behind because there’s typically chips involved.  Still trying to figure out […]
