farmers outlet / grantville – san diego, ca

I love going to grocery stores. I know some people are not really into shopping or grocery shopping but I love it! I love looking at new and different products and searching for new things to cook and bake with. Over in Mission Gorge near the Kaiser hospital on Zion there’s this Farmer’s Market that I have eyed for years but have never gone into. A couple of weeks ago after a quick stop for tortas at Tropical Fruit Paradise, I managed to convince Jake that we should check it out. Not that it takes much to convince Jake to do things. Maybe it’s because he likes me or something.

national bbq month / whiskey bbq sauce recipe
May 21st, 2014Mary, products, RecipesMary Desjean 6 Comments

With Memorial Day coming up this the weekend and the unofficial start of summer on the way, it’s easy to see why May has been declared National BBQ Month. The longer days and warmer weather make it the perfect time to start bringing all of your cooking outdoors. Here in San Diego we’re lucky enough to be able to grill pretty much all year, but sure is a lot nicer to grill when it’s warm outside.

I was recently given some …

[product review] asian snacks part two
May 2nd, 2014Mary, productsMary Desjean 0 Comments

Another edition of crazy Asian snacks! All of these are again from H Mart, where I like to browse the aisles looking for different snacks to try.

Yes! Chips! Why! All! The exclamation points?!

These are sort of like popped crunchy air chips. They are a bit sweet and a bit salty and I really liked the texture of these. Maybe the exclamation points have a point after all. Yummy!

I got these because they said “During my stay in caffe” which just …

March 28th, 2014Cheap Eats, Mary, productsMary Desjean 6 Comments

Doing a quick little post today on some uh… interesting looking snacks I picked up at H Mart recently. I’ve bought a lot of the weird snacks at various Asian markets to give away to other people and I find I don’t always try them myself… so I figured I’d start! Here’s what I picked up during this round of snacks.

Jack ‘n Jill’s Piattos was the first thing I picked up. I grew up with Jack ‘n Jill’s products. When …

[recipe/review] peanut butter chocolate chip cookies
March 3rd, 2014Mary, products, RecipesMary Desjean 4 Comments

Peanut butter is probably one of my most favorite things in life. Peanut butter + chocolate is one of those killer combinations that is so very hard to resist as well. If you want me to be in your favor, give me peanut butter and I’ll be in your corner. Enter a new, local product that’s hit the shelves around town recently called Pacific Beach Peanut Butter.

The peanut butter spread (which is a “spread” because “peanut butter” must contain 90% …

[product review] – DressTiez clothing protector bib
February 28th, 2014Mary, productsMary Desjean 12 Comments

I don’t know about you, but I am kind of a messy eater. For some reason, it’s seems hard to balance food on my fork and it barely gets into my mouth. I get teased for not knowing how to use chopsticks, but really, when it seems like I can barely use a fork sometimes it seems really extra silly for me to try and use chopsticks. I always get crumbs, or noodle bits, or bits of sauce all over …

[product review & giveaway] soofoo (super good food)
December 13th, 2013Giveaways, Mary, productsMary Desjean 77 Comments

I got a new product for you to take a gander at. It’s called SooFoo. I know this looks like its some kind of super crazy too-good-for-you-probably-tastes-like-dirt-and-sticks kind of thing. And I know it looks like that because I kind of thought that looking at the packaging…

BUT… I actually ended up liking it. My parents didn’t really like it, though. My dad thought it looked like there were crickets or bugs in it and that there was maybe some twigs in …

zooies cookies / san diego, ca
December 9th, 2013Central San Diego, Mary, productsMary Desjean 6 Comments

Not too long ago I had heard about this new cookie shop opening up… inside of a gas station! I was invited to the grand opening, but wasn’t able to make it in, but then I was offered a chance to come in and sample the cookies.
As if I could possibly turn down a cookie tasting. COME ON.

Zooies is inside of the APRO 26 (76 gas station) which is apart of the United Oil Co. and is located on Market Street …
