homemade bread for sunday morning
March 26th, 2015Mary, Recipesmary 2 Comments

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 …

legacy brewing tap and kitchen / miramar

I’m always looking out for new restaurants near my office since I love variety and I love checking out new places. I get uber bored when I end up going to the same places again and again, especially since I live and work in the same area. I need new foods in my life! When I discovered there was a new gastropub like place nearby I knew I had to go and scope it out.

Legacy Brewing Tap and Kitchen is …

jose’s pollos / logan heights

On a very hot Sunday afternoon we headed over to Logan Heights to check out a “pollo al carbon” (grilled chicken) shop. I noticed it on Yelp and was interested in trying out some homemade grilled chicken.

One of the first things we noticed when pulling into the small lot was there was a lot going on for this one little corner. There was a car wash place to the right of the taco shop and a little fruiteria tucked into …

saturday morning at the little italy farmers market

Last weekend while Jake was coaching his little league game, I decided to go and finally check out the Little Italy Farmers Market. I got there about 9AM, before the crowds (and the heat!) arrived. I was able to mill about, eat lots of samples, and finally get a little taste of breakfast at Monello.

This juicing booth was one of the first places I passed by. I’ve been drinking a lot of veggie juices in the morning so I was immediately …

wang’s north park

Recently I was invited to check out Wang’s North Park, an Asian-American-Chinese fusion kind of place over in hipster North Park. I took Jake, T, and Carin (Jake’s mom) with me to the dinner. We went pretty early on a Saturday, right when they opened, so we pretty much had the place to ourselves. Wang’s North Park is situated in a gigantic open space that used to JC Penney way, way back in the day. There are two levels of seating …

my top five green food items for st. patrick’s day
March 17th, 2015etc, Marymary 4 Comments

Here’s a thing that sometimes strangers find out about me right off the bat: that my favorite color is green. 
Just this past weekend when I was milling about at the Little Italy Farmer’s Market, a nice young lady at the La Jolla Salt Co. noticed my love of green. I was wearing a lot of it after all… a green patterned tank top, my green purse strapped across my chest, I was sipping on a green kale juice drink and wearing my green …

twenty/20 grill and wine bar / carlsbad, ca

Recently I was invited to go all the way up to Carlsbad land to check out a place called Twenty/20. It’s right next door to Legoland. When you pull into the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa (Twenty/20 one of those fancy hotel restaurants, after all) you can spy the different attractions down in Legoland without actually going to Legoland. Since I’m not under the age of 12, Legoland has very little hold over me, though S (who was along for the adventure) seemed a tad sad to see Legoland without stepping through it’s hallowed gates. Poor S. Maybe some other time.

partially popped popcorn from trader joe’s

I’ve been loving a lot of things lately and this latest find comes from one of my favorite grocery stores: Trader Joe’s. They have a little section in my neighborhood Trader Joe’s with all of the newest products and as soon as I saw this I grabbed it and stuck it in the cart.
