My Burning Kitchen started on Blogspot in Feb. 2005 as a way to share my ideas and thoughts about food.
I’m a frelance page designer by day but food enthusiast 24 hours. This blog documents my food journeys in San Diego and points in between. On occasion, my husband Paul, a cartoonist and infographics journalist will do a guest post when I’m feeling lazy, uninspired or if he just wants to talk about his love of fish sandwiches.
To get acquainted with me, read some of my favorite posts:
- Why I would never let Dustin Hoffman make me french toast
- What’s this green thing in my brownie?
- A strange conversation at Comic-Con (and it’s food related)
- Font explosion at the Hillcrest Farmers Market
- Farmers Market Uniform — mentioned at The Kitchn
- A “Foodie’s” Dilemma
- Reality Television: My Dinner at Gordon Ramsay’s Hotel Hell
Other notable accolades/awards:
- Profiled on Happy Hour Magazine (Jan./Feb. 2011)
- Photos used on Huffington Post and Endless Simmer
- Judge for Taste TV’s 2nd, 3rd and 4th Annual Tasty Awards
- Guest-blogged at Indie Fixx (Tips to survive cubicle life)

I am currently writing restaurant reviews for Mission Publishing Group covering Mission Valley, La Mesa and College area and most recently helped launch Zagat San Diego. In the past, I was also the channel leader for Tree.com’s now defunct Food & Dining Channel editing posts, contributing stories and taking video.
NEW! Available for your offline reading pleasure: The Girl with the Donut Tattoo with several mentions online, in print, podcast and video.
Thanks for visiting and happy eating!
