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 […]

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 […]

Dive Deep for Deliciousness [Benny's Mexican Food]

When I moved to the Golden Hill neighborhood nine-years-ago, a friend told me that I had to try the burgers at Benny’s.  I was a bit hesitant, as Benny’s is known for their wide variety of quick Mexican cuisine, but I gave their burgers a whirl and nine years later, I’m still going back for […]

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 […]

Beef, it's what's for dinner

Ah beef, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways — 1…2…3…. But alas, I had no idea what you were fully capable of until the other night. I met you in the refrigerated section of Iowa Meat Farms. You looked so cold, tender and darker than the other more generic cuts over […]

Dive Deep for Deliciousness [Progress]

I know exactly what you’re thinking, “what does that cool store in the trendy South Park neighborhood with the mid-century modern Danish vibe have to do with diving deep for something greasy and crispy”?  Well, as much as I love hidden gems with delicious crispy goodness, I equally love a luxurious cup of coffee.  Go […]
