Ahead, the San Diego-based chef and photographer shares everything from his killer bacon jam hand pies (!) to a braised beef taco recipe that's to-die.
If you enjoy avocado as much as I do, then you’re going to love today’s article: I’ve got five fresh avocado recipes for you.
Specifically, avocado toast. The concept is fairly simple. Mash up half an avocado with salt, pepper, and some sort of acid (lemon or lime juice) to taste.

To take things up a notch, here are four variations on the basic avocado toast plus simple instructions for perfecting the original, no-frills version.
