wings and fish / encanto
July 23rd, 2014Cheap Eats, Encanto, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 6 Comments

Last Friday Jake and I were running some errands in the evening when I started thinking about dinner. And yet again, I was having a craving for chicken wings. We hadn’t found our “go to” spot yet and I was scoping out Yelp for ideas on places we hadn’t tried yet. We had T with us so we couldn’t do a bar (like Duck Dive) and somehow I stumbled on this place in Encanto (my old hood) called Wings and …

Right next door to Peppertree Frosty is a little place called Danny’s Donuts.

The place is named after Dan Abeyta, who worked in the donut industry for 46 years before he retired… and then went right back to it, opening Danny’s Donuts a few years after he retired. He missed the customer interaction and came out of retirement to open his own shop (after working at Dunkin’ Donuts on the East Coast, among other places). Danny created recipes featured in his …

Two weekend ago when I wasn’t feeling very well, Jake and S were over and I decided that the only thing I really wanted to do that weekend was take a trip up to Vista to try out Pepper Tree Frosty and Danny’s Donuts. I read about Danny’s Donuts and Pepper Tree Corner on Pink Candles of Ridgemont High. CC wrote about their awesome blueberry donuts (post forthcoming) and I also wanted to try the food over at Pepper Tree …

berkeley pizza / downtown san diego
July 18th, 2014Downtown, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 12 Comments

After we witnessed that pretty sunset in Mission Beach, Jake and I started thinking about dinner! He suggested we try this place he spied on Yelp called Berkeley Pizza over in Downtown San Diego. Berkeley Pizza specializes in deep dish pizza – there is no wink or trace of a thin slice pizza in here, buddy!
They have slices of pizza or you can also order a whole pie – which will take about 40 minutes to make. This is definitely …

bruxie / college area – san diego, ca
July 17th, 2014College, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 6 Comments

Bruxie recently opened in the College Area, offering up sandwiches that use waffles instead of bread. WHAT.

I had seen/heard of Bruxie before from other bloggers talking about the OC location and I briefly considering going to OC to try it… but yeah, that didn’t happen. Bruxie was originally supposed to open up at the Headquarters in Downtown but something happened and they pulled out… and are now open and running in the College Area. In fact, they are right next …

After my grandfather’s funeral and a large buffet dinner with the family, my mom and I left with my aunts (my mom’s sisters) to head to Southhampton, MA (which is on the western side of MA) while my dad stayed with his family for another night. The next day my cousins took me out for a little afternoon joyride and took me to see cows (!!) and get ice cream. YES.

rita’s italian ice & iwok chinese restaurant / bonita – san diego, ca

Last month Jake and I had A and S for the afternoon and we took them to see the new Transformers movie. In case you’re wondering, no, you really don’t need to go see the new Transformers movie. If you really feel you must watch it (and haven’t already) … seriously, wait for it to come out on DVD so you don’t feel too ripped off. We go to the Regal Rancho Del Rey theater in Chula Vista where movie …

big bite bacon fest – 2014 recap
July 14th, 2014Del Mar, etc, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 10 Comments

On the second to last day of the fair, Jake and I attended the dinner session of the Big Bite Bacon Fest thanks to Big Bite Events. Since I already been to the fair, we got there about an hour before the event and wandered around a little bit before the VIP admission began at 5:30PM. Jake didn’t have anything in particular he wanted to see so we didn’t spend the whole day there.

VIP admission nets you an extra hour …
