[recipe] coconut, ube and mango overnight oats with noosa yogurt
November 21st, 2014Mary, Recipesmary 8 Comments

Noosa Yoghurt is currently my most favorite yogurt (yoghurt!) ever so I was pretty thrilled when they wanted to work with me to create a recipe using Noosa Yoghurt. They have all of these dreamy flavors and it was a little hard to decide just which ONE yogurt I wanted to focus on.

In the end I decided to use the Coconut Noosa Yoghurt and did a little twist on Overnight Oats using tropical Filipino flavors such as coconut, ube (purple …

[recipe] roasted butternut squash and chicken risotto

I don’t know if you’ll be able to tell or not (I hope so) but I just learned a bunch of things about lightning and food styling at Food Fight Write last week and this is my first post where I’m trying out some of those new “tricks”. Luckily I had the perfect subject to work with as I had just received a complimentary box of yumminess from Melissa’s Produce. Melissa’s Produce challenged local bloggers to create something new with …

[recipe] pumpkin chocolate chip pecan bread
November 12th, 2014Mary, Recipesmary 2 Comments

Back in the day when Mira Mesa still had a Ralph’s instead of the mega H-Mart, I would pop into Ralph’s in the fall to pick up some of the pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. They were like one of the bakery items that I always loved to get at Ralph’s and I never really tried to make it on my own. Since Ralph’s is no one near me now and I don’t think it’s worth it enough to drive to …

mini monster donuts + halloween
November 6th, 2014etc, Mary, Recipesmary 2 Comments

It’s November now and Halloween was pretty much wiped from the stores in early October so who cares about Halloween? 
I do!
I didn’t do anything really fancy for Halloween but I thought these things were cute enough to share. Bear with me. 
I saw these Mini Donut Spiders on Pinterest that just use store bought mini donuts and I thought, “HEY. That is super cute. I’m going to do that for the office work party.”

apple picking in julian + apple pie crumb bars

Last year Jake, Laura, T and I went pear picking in Julian and this year we’re back to apple picking. I actually wanted to go pear picking again, or to find a farm that had both apples and pears, but sadly apple picking season is very, very short this year. O’Dells, where we went pear picking last year, was already closed for the season along with many other orchards. California’s drought has really hit the orchards hard this year and I …

mini breakfast pizzas on pretzel rolls

Happy Friday aka Happy Pre-Weekend! I feel like I’ve been waiting all week for this day to come around. Let’s reminisce about some food I made last weekend. Specifically breakfast food. Pizza breakfast food. Mini pizza breakfast food. On pretzel rolls. Yesssss.
Originally I was going to do these on English muffins but Jake and I had bought 4 soft pretzel sticks at Trader Joe’s and they were begging to be used. I had to indulge them.

I really like the mini …

cardiff crack tri tip + the miracle grill mat

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.

The next day after laser tag was the day of the party for T! It was just a small affair with Jake’s sister and her family, along with a friend of the family and my dad (plus Maya).

Jake manned the grill for the occasion and now I have photographic evidence that he can cook! Muhahaha.

BBQ grilled chicken was the main meaty course for the party.

A summer party also isn’t complete without some grilled corn. Oh, corn on the cob, I’m …
