foodie finds (part 2)
September 18th, 2014etc, Mary, productsMary Desjean 4 Comments

Here’s another installment of “Foodie Finds!” – various things that don’t warrant their own post filled with products and foods I’ve tried out recently.

There’s a Fresh n’ Easy near my work and I stop by there sometimes to pick up a few things. I spotted some “old time” looking candies. The first one: the Goo Goo Cluster. The Goo Goo Cluster was invented in 1912 by Howell Campbell in Nashville, TN. It was the first combination candy that had several types of …

I had a bunch of things that didn’t quite constitute a full post, so I’m going to stick them all together and call it “food finds”. Why not!

[housemade gyro with potato salad from wich addiction]
Here’s a terrible photo of something SUPER delicious from Wich Addiction. A couple of weeks ago the special of the week was a housemade gyro with their own tzatziki sauce on a scallion flatbread. I almost ate my screen looking at this beautiful sandwich again. The …

September 1st, 2014Mary, products, RecipesMary Desjean 6 Comments

Today’s post is a bit of a two for one kind of deal – we’re trying out two products in one post today! The fine folks over at the Seaside Market in Cardiff were nice enough to send me a sample of their beautiful Cardiff Crack which is a marinated Burgundy Pepper Tri Tip.

waffle nut donuts from vons
August 22nd, 2014Mary, productsMary Desjean 4 Comments

Have you been to Vons lately and seen these new donuts? They’re called “Waffle-Nut” – as in, a hybrid of a waffle and a donut. 

I spied these a couple of weeks ago and have now finally tried them all so I can report back to you. You’re welcome. 

The very first one I tried was the Cinnamon & Sugar Waffle Nut donut. It looked promising. It had a good amount of sugar and cinnamon sprinkled all over the donut. But, I …

[product review] chipz happen
August 20th, 2014Mary, productsMary Desjean 6 Comments

I love snacks, especially crunchy snacks, so I was more than happy to receive an offer to try out a new locally made tortilla chip called Chipz Happen. Chipz Happen is a family run business and they make gourmet tortilla chips (“chipz”) in four different flavors. The chips are Non-GMO, Gluten Free, have No Trans Fat and they use Rice Bran oil to fry the chips.

The idea/recipe comes from the mom of the family and the daughters helped to create the …

this is what we think of the new lay’s potato chip flavors
August 5th, 2014Mary, productsMary Desjean 18 Comments

Jake and I decided to go out and grab the new test flavors for Lay’s Potato Chips contest “Do Us a Flavor”. The new flavors in contention are: Cheddar Bacon Mac and Cheese, Mango Salsa, Cappuccino, and Wasabi Ginger.
I’m not good at doing videos so you get photo reactions to 3 of the 4 new Lay’s Potato Chip flavors. We didn’t want to try (and didn’t see) the Wasabi Ginger flavor. I don’t like wasabi as it is, I can’t possibly see …

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 …
