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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Bye-Bye Birdie—a Suburan Chicken Story

Our three baby chicks were a ‘welcome to summer’ gift for my boys on the last day of school. We needed something worthwhile to keep us occupied over the summer. We couldn’t afford expensive theme park passes or summer camps. Instead, we invested in heat lamps and brooders and found books on chicken-raising at the […]

Dive Deep for Deliciousness [Surati Farsan Mart]

In the Indian language of Gujarati, Surati Farsan Mart translates to sweets and snacks.  For me, a spicy, cozy $5 dollar lunch while watching R-rated Bollywood hits has always been more than worth the drive up highway 15.  A luscious gem off Black Mountain road serving Indian style tapas, spicy, crunchy snacks, sweet, nut-filled candies & […]
