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 […]

Chickens and goats and bees...oh my!

It’s spring again and a young man’s fancy turnes to the birds and the bees-and goats and community gardens …. Fortunately, where I live (district three) there have been some zoning changes that affect me. In a rare turn of events the changes are a plus. Take a look at the attached PDF to see […]

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 […]

Bring me my fighting trousers!

  Hello Concerned Neighbor Kevin, The note you left at my office no doubt intended to “enlighten” me of the horrors of eating meat and the mistreatment of animals, I have to say gave me a good chuckle. Especially the “untold suffering” and “no laughing matter” parts. You see, I grew up in Iowa and […]

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 […]

Fallbrook Coffee Company Offers A Reprieve

In a time of media addiction, of being constantly connected yet always distracted, Fallbrook Coffee Company offers a much needed reprieve.  Fallbrook Coffee Company is a small unassuming house converted into a cozy gathering place for gourmet sandwiches and hand brewed coffee, teas and sweets.  Tucked away off of Mission Blvd. in Fallbrook, next to […]

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 […]

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 […]
