MALIBU GARDEN FRESH SALSA – MALIBU VEGAN KITCHEN 002 – In this 2nd episode on Health is the new Wealth, Kathie makes Malibu Garden Fresh Salsa literally from the Garden!

From WIKI… Salsa is the Spanish, Italian, Greek, and Turkish (salça) term for sauce. In English-speaking countries, salsa usually refers to the sauces typical of Mexican cuisine known as salsas picantes, particularly those used as dips.

Salsa is often a tomato-based sauce or dip that is a heterogeneous mixture that includes additional ingredients such as onions, chilies, beans, corn, and various spices. It is typically piquant, ranging from mild to extremely hot.

The word salsa entered the English language from the Spanish salsa (“sauce”), which itself derives from the Latin salsus (salted). The native Spanish pronunciation is [ˈsalsa]. In American English it is pronounced /ˈsɑːlsə/, while in British English it is pronounced as /ˈsælsə/.

Really incredible work from John here. A great mix of flying automotive language that’s dynamic, fast and full of energy. Nice. Check out his site here.

BACK EAST… @SewardJohnson HAMILTON #NewJersey @HamiltonTwpNJ @MarilynMonroe @MarilynMonroeDC #Sculpture #Garden


One of the days back east, we hit the massive home of famed sculptor SEWARD JOHNSON. One of Kathie’s favorite sculptors. And here’s the story…

A while back, Seward premiered his massive sculpture of MARILYN MONROE in Chicago. We were there to enjoy it in all it’s glory and found out that it would be traveling. Just so happened that her next stop was Palm Springs. So, we grabbed Fireball Pop and a cool car and went off to see here there for the second time. One of Marilyn’s favorite towns beside our Malibu homestead.

As we put together this latest trip to the East Coast, Kathie investigated where Marilyn would go next and it turns out she was going home to Hamilton New Jersey and Seward’s Sculpture Garden. So, we set off again…

Not only did we see her beautiness once more, but we had an incredible time enjoying all of Seward’s other pieces and his incredible garden. And rest assured, we’ll be going to wherever she goes next, too.

Thank you Seward for doing what you do best, and inspiring Kathie to finish her Mermaid below…

Look who’s been sneaking through my garden… #scorpion #critter #stinger


Hard to tell in this shot, but this little bugger is a little over 3 inches long. I got bit in the shin from one just like this a while back, but he was only an inch. Hurt like hell for about 3 hours, so a sting from this one would surely make the mark. Especially on the pups. So, I gave him a free trip across the street. Hasta la vista, baby…

It’s official… I’ll be writing for 90265MAGAZINE @90265mag @carticles #malibu @johnsgarden @malibucountrymart @thebigphotoshow

So excited about this one. I’ll be writing a new section in Malibu’s Premiere Magazine 90265. It’s called ON THE MOVE and it will be geared to the Bu Car Culture in a very unique way with fantastic photographs and great write-ups. I’ll cover all aspects, from Hot Rods and Rat Rods to Muscle Cars and Concept Cars. Trucks, Bikes, Helicopters and even Malibu Engine 70! Why? Because we here in the Bu get to see it all and have the best roads on the planet.

I’ll have some copies at THE BIG PHOTO SHOW this weekend for everyone.

BIG THANKS to Editor Cece for asking me to participate. Check them out here and look for next month’s issue coming soon. Also join them on Twitter, Facebook and INSTAGRAM, baby!


Malibu’s “John’s Garden” goes all out to be the BEST

John’s Garden Sandwich Shop is an icon here in Malibu. Not only has it been here a long time, but the food has never changed other than get better. But, as we enter the future, change is a constant, so there’s a chance that what you love today may not be there tomorrow. That’s a fact with many places, but not with this shop… According to the spritely new owner Boyan Kinov, the things that make JG great will not only improve, but he has some secret surprises to make your lunch experience even better. And I mean SECRET… About ten yeras ago, Boyan was hired as a humble cashier at JG right off the heels of being a delivery boy and fresh from Bulgaria. He didn’t know the language very well, but was eager to work in Paradise. His persistence and detremination paid off when John (then owner) bumped him to Manager about 4 years later. Then, 3 years after that… WHAM!! Boyan became the new owner. After knowing Boyan for some time, and since he’s a car guy like me, I can tell you that he loves what he does… and it shows. Kathie and I frequent JG whenever we get the chance, which is a lot. The reason being… JUST LOOK AT THOSE SANDWICHES, BABY! Not only are they huge, but Boyan gave us the opportunity to have lunch for two days because they were so big! And that we did, taking our second halves to Latigo Beach the next day. There are a lot of great places to eat here in the Bu, but my favorite lunch place has always been John’s Garden. Choices are endlesss, and I’m so happy to see someone take it over who’s passion emulates John’s original concept of “the best service possible.” It also helps that the people that keep up Cross Creek are constantly improving the surroundings and making it more beautiful. Head to JG’s for lunch and tell Boyan I sent you. Maybe he’ll make a Fireball Special with Jalapenos? But my money’s always on the Phoney Baloney. Good job, Boyan!!
