Written in partnership with California Avocados. Bibimbap (“bee-beem-bawp”)…saw that 4 times fast and see if it doesn’t put a smile on your face.  It does mine!  It’s just a fun word.  But it’s an even better dish and one of my all-time favorite foods!  It’s a Korean rice bowl, and I’ve got a reimagined version […]

Have you had balela before? It’s a Middle Eastern chickpea and black bean salad that I’m a bit obsessed with.  If you haven’t had it, you are missing out!  If you have, you should probably eat it again.  Either way, I’ve got a twist on traditional balela that includes not-so-traditional California avocado.  It may not be […]
