Bread Whore Explores El Cajon Blvd. Caffinated Pleasures

I really try my best to pound the pavement in search of new coffeehouses even if I have a chosen few I go back to time and time again (Influx, I’m looking at you.  Goddamn, your muffins, scones, and cupcakes are sinful!).  The few noteworthy coffee businesses mentioned below are worth your time and money.

Bread Whore Enjoys Some Cardamom

You have certain restaurants where you return for any myriad of reasons.  You attach some sense of comfort to the restaurant, a tranquility of place and being that you might be able to articulate or you might not.  Cardamom is one of those places I consistently find myself returning to dine (breakfast/brunch only), a place […]

Jenny Wenny Cakes

For a long time I was pretty jazzed with making cupcakes from a box mix and the addition of a dollap of sour cream, and calling it made from scratch.  Those days may not be 100% over, but tasting Jenny Wenny Cakes definitely opened my eyes to how a real cupcake should taste.  I’ve been […]

San Diego's Best Fish Tacos

A few years ago, when a friend of mine moved here from Phoenix she asked where to get the best fish tacos in San Diego.  It got me thinking, and recollecting, about a handful of go-to-fish-taco joints that I hadn’t visited since my 20s.  So I decided to take her for a trip down memory […]

The Riedel Low-Down: What a Difference a Glass Makes

Have you ever bought what you thought was a fantastic bottle of wine after a wine tasting, only to taste it later and think: “I must have been drunk, this wine sucks?”  I have.  More than I’d like to admit.  But, I’ve recently come to a startling realization: wine tastes best in the right glass. […]

Fast, Cheap and Full of Veggies

While contemplating my inaugural article for Culinary Creative, I thought long and hard about what to write about. It would have to be good. It would have to be memorable. What could I write about that would leave an impression—something beautiful, something innovative, something International? With no inspiration to fit any of those categories, I […]

Great Tastes at the San Diego Salt Farm

Salt. Glorious salt. Since the beginning of time … well, maybe not that early, but certainly as far back as 6,000 BC, salt has been an integral part of human history.  For me, I’ve really only come to know salt in my adult life.  As a child it was something that sat on the table […]

Bread Whore Takes A Stroll Around Ave5

Bread Whore Takes A Stroll Around Ave5

I’m cheap. I used to say I’m frugal; it provided a kind of gravitas, as if I were penny-pinching in order to stockpile enough money to write some astronomically large charity check in the name of some worthy, high-falutin cause. Like cancer research or urban education initiatives or bankrolling the next non-profit. I could also […]
