How did I get this recipe?

I can still recall the sense of amazement I felt when I first saw the recipe for French Kiss Guacamole. It was a warm summer day, and I was visiting my dear friend Marie in her cozy little cottage by the sea. Marie was a fantastic cook, and I always loved spending time in her kitchen, learning new recipes and techniques.

On this particular day, Marie had a gleeful twinkle in her eye as she pulled out a worn, stained recipe card from her recipe box. "I have something special to share with you today, my dear," she said with a mischievous grin. "It's a recipe for French Kiss Guacamole, and I guarantee you've never tasted anything quite like it."

Intrigued, I leaned in closer as Marie began to read out the ingredients and instructions. Avocados, lime juice, garlic, red onion, jalapeno, cilantro, and a secret ingredient that she refused to reveal until the very end. As she mixed and mashed the ingredients together, the kitchen filled with a tantalizing aroma that made my mouth water.

As we sat down to enjoy the guacamole with some crispy tortilla chips, I took my first bite and was immediately transported to food heaven. The flavors were unlike anything I had ever tasted before - creamy and rich with a hint of spice and a burst of freshness from the cilantro. And then came the surprise twist - a dollop of sweet, tangy mango salsa on top that added a whole new dimension to the dish.

I couldn't believe how delicious it was. I begged Marie to share the recipe with me, and she obliged with a twinkle in her eye. "I learned this recipe from a charming French chef I met on my travels to Provence many years ago," she explained. "He called it French Kiss Guacamole because it's a fusion of French and Mexican flavors, just like a passionate kiss between two cultures."

From that day on, French Kiss Guacamole became a staple in my kitchen. I would make it for family gatherings, dinner parties, and even just for myself when I needed a pick-me-up. Each time I made it, I would think of Marie and that sunny summer day by the sea, savoring the flavors and memories that came with each bite.

Over the years, I've made a few tweaks to the original recipe, adding my own spin with a touch of cumin and a squeeze of lemon juice. But the essence of the dish remains the same - a harmonious blend of flavors that never fails to impress. And every time I make it, I can't help but smile and remember that magical moment when I first discovered the joy of French Kiss Guacamole.
