San Diego



San Diego, California

Sitting in the southwest corner of the state, San Diego is where California began, originally claimed in the name of Spain by Portuguese explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo. With an average annual temperature of just over 70 degrees, everyday is a good day for a trip to the beach or a farmer’s market. The beaches are everywhere and you are likely to find a market somewhere just about any day of the week—and year-round, no less. The city’s restaurants offer everything from casual takeout to four-star dining, with the fish taco as the local favorite. You haven’t truly experienced eating in San Diego if you haven’t enjoyed one of their deep fried, battered fish wrapped in a corn tortilla with cabbage and sauce.

About me:
I have cooked for myself for a while, but am just learning to REALLY cook. I believe that almost anyone can cook almost anything if they follow the instructions. That being said, I am a very experimental cook, and I almost never follow a recipe. I can start out making fried chicken and wind up with a lovely pork roast by the time I'm done substituting. Sometimes this yields great successes, sometimes not so much.
