When it’s summer in the San Joaquin Valley, it’s hot…so, why not have a hot dog? The Great Food Search has gathered a tasty pack of the frankfurter kind. Let’s take a bite.

Let’s face it, most of us are average looking. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but most of us will never be famous models or actors. Where we can be above average and even experts, is our “inside.” Most of us “average” looking people do above average things that positively affect our friends, family, and community and can possess above average strength, intelligence, compassion, and heart. It’s not only humans that fall into this category.

It’s summer, and you want to eat something light, so…Let there be SALADS! And there WERE salads…and they were GOOD!
The Great Food Search has featured salads before (in 2014 and 2019), and some of the restaurants I’ll talk about this year are ones I’ve mentioned in earlier articles, but they aren’t the same salads, so…Let’s Eat!

If you are serious about maintaining healthy eating habits, the central San Joaquin Valley is the place for you. Over 360 different crops are grown right here, and we have direct access to just about all of them. Are we lucky, or what? But if not for one small but mighty creature, we wouldn’t have this bounty. I’m talking about bees.

Fresno Bully Rescue: Karma

Let’s talk about the pros and cons of adopting a senior versus a younger dog or puppy. Everybody loves puppies, I get it. I love puppies, you love puppies, your best friend just got a new puppy, and you’re beside yourself with jealousy. It makes sense the default choice when adopting a new dog is to go for the younger pup, however, you may be surprised by how rewarding it can be to adopt an adult dog, a senior dog to be exact.

You know how it is. You find a place to eat that you like, and a dish that you enjoy, so every time you go there, that’s what you order.
Where’s the adventure? Where’s the excitement? Where’s the danger?

Back in February, struggling with the pandemic closures, I tried a bunch of restaurants, planning to review them…until we went to Cattlemen’s in Selma, and that one place became the whole article for the month. However, I promised to write up the others, so this month’s Great Food Search will try to keep most of those promises.

Age: Perfect…Ok, I’m almost four which means I’m out of the puppy stage.

The 2021 Fresno Rogue Festival has come and gone, it’s virtual shows departed, but I still have my memories…of food. Usually, I write about all the Tower District restaurants I go to during the festival. Instead, I picked up meals on the way home from work or threw something together at home. This episode of The Great Food Search will follow the journey of what I ate during Virtual Rogue 2021.

Wouldn’t you like to party like it’s Two Thousand Nineteen? Things were so much simpler, then. Now…oh, boy. Imagine what it would be like to run a restaurant during this pandemic. No, you can’t. Yes, you can. No, you can’t. Yes, you…maybe. Owners have to find some way to make things work and keep their employees employed.
