About Me

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:

Cheesy Garlic Popcorn

Other notable accolades/awards:

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!




The opinions expressed on My Burning Kitchen are entirely my own (and sometimes Paul’s) and do not reflect the opinions of anyone else. Occasionally, I succumb to peer pressure.
