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 …

breakfast quesadillas

I made these for Sunday morning: Breakfast Quesadillas. I actually got the idea from a Pinterest post about breakfast burritos but I didn’t look hard enough in Jake’s kitchen to see there were big tortillas. All I saw were the little corn taco sized one and on the fly it went from breakfast burritos to breakfast tacos to breakfast quesadillas since I realized tacos would probably fall apart in the pan. I really wanted that crispy outside edge and quesadillas would be easier to heat up that way.

homemade bread for sunday morning

I’ve been thinking about bread lately and I took it upon myself to remake this No Knead Bread recipe last weekend. Homemade bread is totally worth the effort and honestly this bread recipe is easy enough to do with very little work on my part. It just takes planning a day in advance to make sure your dough is ready in time for when you actually want to cook it.

My one little change this time around it when I set …

chocolate cupcakes with bourbon ganache
February 11th, 2015Mary, Recipesmary 6 Comments

Bear with me. It’s another Valentine’s post! But this time with chocolate. And cake. And ganache – with Four Roses bourbon in it! I hope you can get behind this.

Now originally for this post, I made the above cupcakes. Which are pretty and fanciful and cute and all. But the flavor of these cupcakes were terrible. They were too dry and tasted almost bitter and was a total failure. I ended up throwing them away because I couldn’t bare the taste …

Valentine’s Day is just on the horizon. It’s peeking over your shoulder! Instead of doing a box of chocolates for Valentine’s Day this year, why not try making something a little more homespun for your sweetie? Today I’m sharing a little recipe that I created using Driscoll’s Strawberries and I’m really excited about them because they turned out way better than I thought they would!

Peanut Butter Pie Stuffed Strawberries.
Doesn’t that sound MAGICAL? 
It totally is. 

I knew I wanted to do some …

[recipe] butterscotch pudding + another nestfresh eggs giveaway!
January 30th, 2015Mary, Recipesmary 20 Comments

I received another opportunity to work with NestFresh Eggs in conjunction with National Egg Month this month! National Egg Month is around to help educate folks and raise awareness for choosing healthy eggs and including them into your diet. Did you know that NestFresh eggs are certified cage free – but what the heck does that mean? Certified Cage Free means the little hens get to roam around and feel like free little birds instead of cooped up in close …
