Convivial Families…Real or Myth?

I come from a family that loves to indulge, whether it’s food, drink or just celebration in general.  But, over the years, we sure can get tired of ourselves.   So I’ve come to realize that cycling through marriages and relationships as my brother and I have can be a good thing…. …especially after last night.  […]

Dive Deep for Deliciousness [Food Bowl Market]

For my first Culinary Creative review, it’s only appropriate I chat a bit about my absolute favorite neighborhood grocery, “Food Bowl Market” in Southpark on the corner of Fern and Cedar Street. Besides being able to buy groceries, wine, mexican pastries and any humanly imaginable part of a cow, they bring the hot sizzle when […]

You might have a friend or co-worker who lost weight or got rid of their hypertension with a meat-free, dairy-free eating plan. Whatever your reason for exploring a plant-based diet, San Diego […]

SoNo Trading Co.

Let me start off by saying one thing. I don’t like mustard. There I said it. Or at least I didn’t until yesterday. Enter SoNo Trading Company’s James and Zach. They do one thing and they do it well—Mustard. Well, two things if you count each variety of mustard they make. Anyway, my experience with […]

Suburban Chickens

I grew up in North Dakota and Montana and always felt I didn’t belong there. I was too cosmopolitan, too much like my German-bred mother in my appreciation for side-walk café’s and a closet full of pretty clothes to relate to the cowboys and ranchers I lived with who smelled like leather and tobacco, dirt […]

Charisma Cucina Italiana

This trattoria is a fun place with nice atmosphere, and friendly service. We tried them for lunch, and were very impressed. There is nice variety on the lunch menu, with even more choices for dinner. There are many wine varieties (by the glass) at very reasonable prices. The waiter brought a basket of Italian bread […]

PASSION, turn to the left. PASSION, turn to the right. P-P-P-Passion Fruit.

It’s passion fruit central here at Culinary Creative. Recently, my husband and I moved into a new house. It’s a small house on a good-sized lot in the heart of South Park. Our yard has a huge, soon to be bountiful garden, as well as two fig trees, two guava trees, a mulberry tree, apple, […]
