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:
My mother couldn't cook, so I learned the hard way: through trial and error. I really developed an interest in cooking when I branched out on my own. In my house, I cook for my husband and well as an occasional friend or neighbor. I'm a college student, so I'm always interested in finding good, healthy, frugal recipes although on Saturday nights we tend to make something fancy. My challenge is that my husband will not eat beef, lamb or pork. I'm from the midwest, and back there, the small community churches and clubs sell wonderful little cookbooks that I love to cook out of. Usually easy recipes that are inexpensive, but sometimes they need tweaking.
