[recipe] quesataco with cilantro garlic sauce
April 27th, 2016Mary, RecipesMary 3 Comments

I was invited to participate again (yay!) in the Del Real Recipe Challenge (voting begins soon!). I racked my brain about what I wanted to create this year and after a little trip down to Mexico I got inspired by the tacos I ate in Tijuana. I decided to try and recreate the Quesataco I had in Mexico and topped it off with a delicious homemade sauce inspired by a trip to Vegas. There’s a combination of travel experiences in …

[recipe] jackfruit banana bread with lime and coconut
January 29th, 2016Mary, RecipesMary 2 Comments

This week is was our turn for Breakfast Club at work. Originally I was going to try and do breakfast pizzas, but Minion wanted to bring in breakfast burritos again (he does this regularly so sometimes I call him Burrito Man). I felt that pizza AND burritos for breakfast was overkill. What to do instead? I poked around in the freezer and found what I thought was mango (it wasn’t) and decided to make a banana bread. With mango. But …

For New Year’s Eve this year I decided to change up the usual snacks that I did. But first… let’s look at a little bit of a quickie lunch that Jake and I had earlier in the day.

There’s a market over in La Mesa called the Vine Ripe Market. It’s an ethnic market with lots of Mediterranean items. Jake and I went here a few weeks ago and I remember they had a bunch of different meats. I was looking for …

I once again decided to participate in the 2015 Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap by making some awesome Oatmeal Pecan Cookies. Each blogger who participated made a donation and the money is donated to Cookies for Kid’s Cancer. Participation involves mailing out three batches of cookies and receiving three batches in return. It’s a win-win for everyone involved!
I decided to go with a really simple cookie based on the Pioneer Woman’s Brown Sugar Cookie recipe. The Pioneer Woman thinks the brown sugar is the star of the …

[recipe] sesame chicken noodles + a giveaway

Last weekend Laura, Jake, T, Maya and I headed up to Julian for our annual trip to the mountains. It finally feels like fall in San Diego, hooray! A nice walk in Julian would be good since I started using a Fitbit last week – I need all the steps I can get! The only downside was there were SO MANY people with the same idea as us and the streets were pretty crowded with folks milling around or waiting …

bbq’s, oak by absolut, and summer dinners on the grill
June 29th, 2015etc, Mary, products, RecipesMary 6 Comments

IT IS SUMMER! Just in case you had no idea. Tourists visiting San Diego the last few days might have been thinking, “What in the world? Why is it cloudy?” but us year-rounders know all about the “June Gloom”. I’m just not used to this weird new addition of “June Humidity”. It feels like nature is confused and thinks we’re on the East Coast or something.
But I digress… it is summer! And that means it’s time to cook everything OUTSIDE just …

getaway to the desert: our stay in morongo valley

We headed out to the desert on Saturday around mid-morning. There was no way I wanted to leave on a Friday before a long weekend – can you imagine the hellish traffic that would have been waiting for us?! We planned a trip out this way for a little quiet time and Jake wanted to show me around Yucca Valley. He lived there for a little while back in the 90’s and wanted to see how much had changed since …
