hanna’s gourmet / university heights

Alyssa was in town for a mini weekend visit and I met her and the family for breakfast at Hanna’s Gourmet, a spot I’ve been eyeing for a revisit for quite awhile. I visited Hanna’s Gourmet earlier this year with a few other bloggers and this was our dessert spot that day. I’m happy I got to come back to try out their other food.

Hanna’s Gourmet specializes in doing “World Tour” foods and that week they were doing the Philippines! …

werewolf american pub / downtown san diego
October 21st, 2014Downtown, Mary, San Diego Countymary 8 Comments

Jake’s birthday is approximately 20 days before mine. We don’t always celebrate on his actual birthday though since S’s birthday is on the 2nd and he doesn’t want to steal his thunder. Instead we celebrated after his actual day. I made the whole thing a “Surprise! Woohoo!” evening and didn’t tell him where we were going. Jake’s mom graciously dropped us off Downtown as I had arranged transport home through Blacklane. Our first stop: dinner at Werewolf American Pub.

I didn’t …

weekday lunching at specialty’s, boudin bakery and opera cafe

It’s Monday. And I’m home sick. Hence the late and short post. I am determined to beat this cold as quickly as possible though for birthday weekend fun times. I’m going to be like Barney:

Yesssssss. That’s gonna be me!

[turkey, apple, bacon and brie sandwich / $8.99]
Minion and I went to Specialty’s Cafe recently. I was in a “I-Want-Brie-Forever-And-Ever” mood and chose this sandwich which had roasted turkey breast, bacon and brie with fire-roasted fuji apples, arugula and lemon thyme aioli …

friday foodie finds / part three
October 17th, 2014etc, Mary, productsmary 10 Comments

I dig doing my “foodie finds” posts and I hope you enjoy them, too! These are all things that didn’t warrant their own full post, but are still worth mentioning! 

Actually this first thing isn’t a “find”. I made these deviled eggs! I don’t even have a real recipe for them. I just scoop out the yolks and then squirt in little mustard, add mayo, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and smoked paprika to taste. Then I add another little dash of paprika …

borrego springs / salton sea / mount laguna

Getting around to Part 2 of our little weekend trip out to the desert! You can refresh your memory with Borrego Springs Part 1 over here, if you’d like to. Don’t worry, I’ll wait.

After grabbing lunch, visiting “The Mall” and checking into our hotel, Jake and I decided to drive out to visit the Salton Sea. Neither of us had ever been and we were curious what it was like. It’s about a half hour drive away from Borrego Springs, down a winding two lane road in the desert.

claire’s on cedros / solana beach

Last week I was up quite early to take my folks to the airport. 4:30AM to be exact. By the time I got back home I felt pretty awake and decided to get ready and then take myself out for breakfast. I hadn’t visited Claire’s on Cedros since 2011 and I had a strong urge for their pancakes again.

[coffee / $3]
It was quite early and I decided to get coffee for some reason, which was kind of a dumb idea …

nessy burgers / fallbrook
October 14th, 2014Fallbrook, Mary, San Diego Countymary 8 Comments

On the way back home from Jake’s sister’s house in Temecula one recent weekend, we stopped for a little grub in Fallbrook. I had heard about Nessy Burgers awhile ago but they seemed to close early and Jake and I hadn’t managed to visit. Jake’s sister recommended the spot and we decided it was time to check out Nessy Burgers.

Nessy Burgers used to be in a little shack right next to the gas station off the I-15 and SR-76. They were …

Howdy folks. It’s Monday again. MINION MONDAY. I love this whole “let someone else write for Monday” thing.

Tucked in near the Del Mar Horse Park, Cafe Cantata sits at the forefront of the recently revamped Flower Hill Promenade. Though we weren’t on our way to play with the ponies, Allison and I were both …
