Last week I received Julia Turshen's new book Small Victories and instantly fell in love. Now I am a bit of a cookbook collector, but I haven't been this excited about a book since Gjelina came out last year. Over the weekend I filled up my coffee cup, found a spot on the couch and read every page. Pen and paper in hand making a list of everything I wanted to make. Sunday while football was on, I made Julia's Kinda, Sorta Patatas Bravas. And without a doubt they are the best potato recipe I have ever tried. 

Next on my list, this avocado toast. Which yes, avocado toast is a bit of a thing, and often times I find the hype a bit much. Do I still make it at home all of the time, absolutely. This time, topped with Kimchi, a kimchi juice mayonnaise sauce (mind officially blown), sesame seeds, and cilantro. So yes, avocado toast is a thing, and this avocado toast is the best of those things.
