¡salud! by the san diego taco company / barrio logan

Last weekend Jake and I felt like young adults again, going out for dinner and a play. At night! On a Friday! By ourselves! This is a rare thing these days.
We were going over to Coronado to check out the play, Avenue Q, and needed a little dinner before the show. Jake nixed any suggestions I made for dining in Downtown so I went with a place just outside of Downtown in Barrio Logan. A new place called ¡Salud! which is …

[product review] green pea cookie
February 26th, 2015Mary, productsmary 6 Comments

I’m a regular supporter or various things on Kickstarter and I get their emails talking about what projects the staff had backed recently or popular projects. I spied a little Kickstarter link to something called Green Pea Cookie and was instantly curious. Cookies… made with green peas? Say whaaaaat? I’m not even a fan of regular peas by their lonesome self, but I do love me some pea soup so I figured it’d be worth it to back the project …

tobey’s 19th hole

This is a resurrected post from when I wrote about Tobey’s 19th Hole for a local San Diego site back in the day (2012, to be exact). I didn’t realize I still had the text and photos lurking around in my Google docs, so here’s a “blast from the past” article that CC encouraged me to repost (thanks, CC!). I had a few extra photos that I threw in as well. Please note, the prices may have changed since this …

snooze am eatery / del mar, ca

Recently I was invited to come back and check out Snooze AM Eatery. Snooze AM Eatery originally opened a location in Hillcrest (which we visited!) but there’s a newer spot in Del Mar as well. Their roots are in Denver and I’m glad they made the trek out West since their breakfast items are totally delicious. 

We went on the morning of the Super Bowl so while it looked crowded to us, our waitress told us it was actually “slow” for them. …

star wars trash compactor cake for my valentine
February 16th, 2015cake decorating, Marymary 6 Comments

Valentine’s Day was over the weekend! I’m sure you realized this, seeing little pop up vendors all over town selling teddy bears and flowers and the insane amount of balloons in the grocery stores. This will be a quickie little post to recap my Valentine’s Day. Specifically, to recap the lovely cake I made for Jake.
Jake usually gets something Star Wars related from me on special occasions. This year I decided to go “all out” and do a whole cake …

dim sum at pearl chinese / san diego

Last month I finally got to try out “sit down with the carts” dim sum for the first time with Faye of Faye’s Fork and Lynn of Oh-So-Yummy at Pearl Chinese. We met up on a Saturday and sat at a big, round table to start stuffing delicious dim sum into our mouths. Sounds like the perfect Saturday to me!

Pearl Chinese is up in Rancho Bernardo and has this beautiful pond/lake in the back area next to the Doubletree Inn. I …

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 …

pho cow cali – mira mesa

Amazingly I have never blogged about Pho Cow Cali even though I’ve been here oh so very many times. There are a few places I frequent that I never blogged about but I’m unsure why. I need to fix that, starting with this post! I honestly hadn’t been to Pho Cow Cali in awhile but last week I was craving it badly. 

[rice vermicelli with egg rolls and bbq pork / $7.35]
I actually don’t usually order Pho when I’m here, but rather …
