Being an absolute crazy pickle lover, I will never really understand people who don’t like pickles. Not to mislead you into thinking I do not have pickle hating friends… I do. Before the burger can even touch the table they are throwing all their pickles my way… I mean c’mon, it cant get much better than that!

Whenever I make a stop back home, I can always expect to leave with an assortment of mismatched groceries from my parent’s fridge. “Maddie do you want hummus… raspberries… wonton wrappers… or zucchini to take with you…?” My mom yells upstairs. Of course I agree to taking everything with me. Sunday grocery shopping in the city might just be the WORST. I’m then left with the misleading challenge of creating meals from my Chopped mystery ingredient basket…
I will say, one of my greatest talents has to be creating dishes from nothing, this recipe being the aftermath of one of those situations. I was left with hummus, wonton wrappers, and craved something fried. Voila! The spicy garlic wontons came to life!
Avocados are hands down one of my favorite snacks and a great addition to just about anything! When I am getting ready in the morning, I will crack eggs into my halved avocado and toss them in the oven. In 20 minutes, I have a vitamin packed breakfast that is great to spread on bread or simply to enjoy with a spoon!
One big tip I have is to scoop out about 1-1.5 tablespoons of avocado (wide not deep) to create enough room for your egg. Otherwise it will overflow!

Simple, yet delicious! After cooking school, I have really come to appreciate each individual ingredient and I really believe that this recipe below highlights the beauty of these potatoes!

Ramen has come a very long way. From being shoved in the desks of every college dorm room to now being slurped in all of the foodiest cities, this Japanese comfort food is one trend that might just stay a while!
