About Us

Kirbie’s Cravings is a food blog based in San Diego, sharing dining experiences (mainly in San Diego, but also in Los Angeles, Orange County, the Bay Area and anywhere else we travel to), our kitchen recipes, and food product obsessions.

We love to eat, take food road trips, cook and bake.  Through this blog, we share our eating adventures. We hope you enjoy following along!

Kirbie: I grew up surrounded by wonderful food and people who have a passion for food. My grandparents have always taken me to amazing restaurants. At home, my mom is a wonderful cook. In high school my friends gave me the nickname “Kirbie” because I’m constantly eating and have the ability to eat large amounts of food and metabolize it quickly and be hungry again within the hour.

Mr. K (as in Mr. Kirbie) (formerly referred to in older posts as DH (“Dear Husband”), “FH” (Future Husband) or “BF” (The Boyfriend)) : When I met Mr. K, he wasn’t very into food. His diet consisted mainly of canned food and fast food. After we began dating, Mr. K’s palate changed and now he enjoys all types of cuisine. He is willing to be my constant dining companion, driver on food road trips, and taste tester in the kitchen. Outside of eating, his real passion is drawing. He will often have his sketch pad out no matter where we are.

Working with Kirbie’s Cravings

Restaurant Reviews: We accept a limited number of invitations to dine at restaurants for menu tastings, sneak peeks, etc, if they are restaurants we are interested in trying. However, we reserve the right to not post about our experience and we will always be completely honest in our reviews.

Partnering with Brands: We have partnered with many brands to do product reviews, giveaways and recipe creations.  We will only work with brands/products which we truly enjoy using and will only write posts expressing our honest views.

Kirbie’s Cravings has worked with many brands for giveaways, reviews or recipe creations, including Whole Foods, Expedia, Vons, Wendy’s, Target, OXO, Green Mountain Coffee, Sony, Kellogg’s Special K, Chobani, Del Taco, Lindt, Stubb’s and Sargento Cheese.

Travel Reviews: We love to travel and write about our hotel, plane, and restaurant experiences when we travel. We are open to invitations to review travel destinations, lodging, transportation, food, etc.
