April 23rd, 2014Cheap Eats, Mary, Miramar, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 4 Comments

Last week was Jake and I’s 7th Anniversary! Jake had to work on the evening of our actual anniversary so we weren’t planning on celebrating until later in the week but I managed to get him to come and have lunch with me on the day of. He was late in coming by to get me and I was starting to get REALLY cranky pants on him because the HUNGER was consuming all of the my thoughts.
Since I knew I …

college area taste 2014 recap
April 22nd, 2014College, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 10 Comments

I meant to post this last week but the week kind of got away from me! Here’s my recap of the College Area Taste!
Jake and I left a little early so we could get there before the event started to pick up our tickets at will call. While getting our tickets, Lynn and Dennis of Oh-So Yummy arrived at the same time. She was the winner of my giveaway and the four of us ended up going around the whole …

valley farm bbq / spring valley, ca
April 21st, 2014Mary, San Diego County, Spring ValleyMary Desjean 2 Comments

On a recent weekend Jake had the idea that we should head out to Valley Farm Market. Specifically he wanted to see if they had meat packages (like, a bunch of various cuts of meats for one price), though they did not. We visited the market once a long time ago without purchasing anything but we did take note that they sold BBQ inside the market…

 As well as at this little shack in the parking lot. This is where we …

cape town pub south african fusion / miramar – san diego, ca
April 18th, 2014Mary, Miramar, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 8 Comments

Last week I was doing a little lunch search on Yelp. I almost never write reviews on Yelp but I use it a lot to help me discover new things. As I was scrolling through the list for Miramar I skimmed over an entry for “Capetown” and in the first paragraph I saw “Deli SA” and a little light went off in my head – HEY, this place is run by the people who did Deli SA and all those …

‘rita’s cantina @ harrah’s / valley center, ca
April 16th, 2014Mary, San Diego County, Valley CenterMary Desjean 6 Comments

My Dad recently had a birthday (happy birthday, Dad!) and he and my mom spend his birthday weekend up at Harrah’s. He wanted us (Jake, S and I) to meet them for breakfast at Valley View Casino, but we found out that Valley View is a “NO KIDS!@#” zone so we ended up going back to Harrah’s for eats.
On the way over to Harrah’s (which is a short drive from Valley View Casino), we spotted a little furry dog running …

mr. peabody’s bar & grill / encinitas, ca
April 14th, 2014Encinitas, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 8 Comments

Mr. Peabody’s is a cool little dive bar/grill in Encinitas, CA that I was invited to check out last week. It’s tuckered into a strip mall right off the freeway at Encinitas Blvd. It’s kind of hard to spot since the sign doesn’t really stand out and it’s way back in the lot, but it’s worth a visit to this semi-hidden spot!

They got some sweet happy hour deals as well as Daily Specials plus live entertainment nearly every evening. You …

supernatural sandwiches / miramar – san diego, ca
April 11th, 2014Mary, Miramar, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 12 Comments

A few months ago, my co-worker cohorts and I tried to come to this plaza off Miramar Rd. for lunch to visit a place called Dave’s Cafe. But it had been closed down and a new spot was revamping it for an eventual move into the spot. Fast forward a few month’s and the place has finally opened and we went last week to check it out. The place? Supernatural Sandwiches.

I think they’re still working on their signage since the …

[giveaway] taste of hillcrest coming up on april 19th, 2014 + win tickets!
April 9th, 2014Giveaways, Hillcrest, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 10 Comments

The 14th Annual Taste of Hillcrest is just around the corner! I last attended this event in 2012 and Jake and I had a blast going around and trying the crazy amount of samples available from over 40 restaurants in the neighborhood. There are 40 restaurants participating – making it one of the larger “taste” events in San Diego.

These taste events are always a ton of fun – it’s a great chance to see what’s in the neighborhood with a …

about this site

My name is Mary and I live in San Diego. I've been blogging since 2006 as a hobby - it's my fun, creative outlet! Some random things about me: I'm a front end web developer, I love peanut butter, cookies, warm cupcakes, puppy noses, star gazing, new bags of sugar, sprinkles, cupcake wrappers, egg rolls, eating french fries with ice cream, driving with the windows down, snuggling, wes anderson movies, staying up too late reading a good book and Jake. These are my adventures in all things food. Hope you enjoy the ride.
