[recipe] butterscotch pudding + another nestfresh eggs giveaway!
January 30th, 2015Mary, Recipesmary 14 Comments

I received another opportunity to work with NestFresh Eggs in conjunction with National Egg Month this month! National Egg Month is around to help educate folks and raise awareness for choosing healthy eggs and including them into your diet. Did you know that NestFresh eggs are certified cage free – but what the heck does that mean? Certified Cage Free means the little hens get to roam around and feel like free little birds instead of cooped up in close …

pinkberry / new flavors + 10 cent frozen yogurt

Pinkberry is really more of a big deal to our northern neighbors but we’ve managed to hang onto two locations down here in San Diego. Pinkberry is celebrating it’s 10 year anniversary this year with a fancy, new, cheap special that I’m sure will get you in a tizzy. That is, if you love tasty frozen treats, which you should.

On Friday, January 30th (aka TOMORROW) you’ll be able to score $.10 cent Pinkberry! You’ll get a small cup with your …

national blueberry pancakes day
January 28th, 2015Mary, Recipesmary 3 Comments

It’s amazing how many foodie related “holidays” there are. For instance, today is National Blueberry Pancakes Day and I wonder, is there a Cheetos day, or is it only recipes? And also, why only blueberry pancakes today? Is there an apple cinnamon pancake day, too? Or a dutch baby pancake day? I’m sure Google could answer all of these questions for me but I think it’s best to just let them drift into the void and wonder, like when we …

attack on titan birthday cake
January 26th, 2015cake decorating, Marymary 4 Comments

Jake’s daughter recently had a birthday and it was up to me to create another birthday cake (she’s now 15, WHAT THE HECK). This time she asked for Attack on Titan birthday cake (flavor: lemon). She loves Attack on Titan and when we went to walk around at Comic Con last year she dressed up as one of the characters and also did the same thing again for Halloween. She’s really into this show. Me? I hardly know anything about it, but …

portland, oregon – day three recap

Welcome to Portland again, dear friends, as we explore and recap the third day of our trip. It’s a bit of doozy with the photos!
1) Stepping Stone Cafe

I will admit that the Stepping Stone Cafe did not initially make my itinerary. Jake and I watched an old episode of Man v. Food before our trip and Jake really wanted to go here. So I fit it in. Aren’t I a nice girlfriend? (Just nod and say yes.)

This is part of …

deli sushi and desserts / miramar

I’m always poking around on Yelp at lunchtime to see if anything new has popped up in my office’s area. And there was something new! A sushi place pretty close by. My cohorts and I went to check it out. It’s called Deli Sushi and Desserts.

I didn’t take a photo of the outside but it’s totally in a warehouse area with a little banner declaring it’s presence. “I’m here! I’m here!” it tries to shout, but your mind is like, …

wing crawl / san diego wing week

San Diego Wing Week is here!

It’s a week long event that offers special deals on wings – mostly $5 baskets of wings. There are also $10 deals, usually wings and beer, available at all participating locations. Tomorrow (the 20th) is the last day for San Diego Wing Week so I felt it was my duty to post about this today instead of another Portland post (but that’ll be later this week).
This time around my crawl cohorts included: Jake, Laura, Lynn …

restaurant week preview at monello in little italy

I was invited to check out a preview of San Diego Restaurant Week this year and my choice of restaurant was Monello in Little Italy. Jake and I first visited Monello back in December 2013 and I remember loving their homemade pasta so I was looking forward to a revisit.
We were warmly greeted by the manager of Monello, Paul, who was delightful and really engaging. I saw him constantly interacting with all of the guests dining in the restaurant that …
