yuma part two: a date shake and the bridge to nowhere
March 6th, 2015AZ, Mary, Road Tripsmary 4 Comments

After visiting the tiny church in Yuma, we went back on the road and headed back towards the freeway. We didn’t get very far before we made another stop. While driving to the tiny church, Jake noticed a large bridge that looked familiar to us and he noticed a sign for date shakes. Date shakes aren’t easy to come by in San Diego and are one of my very favorite things, so we stopped to check out From the Farm.

We …

cracker barrel + a tiny church in yuma, az

A spontaneous boyfriend and low gas prices prompted a mini road trip last month to Yuma, AZ. Why Yuma and why Arizona, you might ask? Mostly it was so I could finally try Cracker Barrel, a chain “down home cooking” restaurant present in many states but not California. Jake and T has tried it last year when they went to Aspen so it was finally my turn. I know, it’s just a chain restaurant but I was still curious!

We rolled …

portland, oregon – day four (last day)

We’ve finally gotten to our last day in Portland! And this post will be all food! The majority of our day was spent checking out a few final foodie spots and we spend a good chunk of time at the Crafty Wonderland craft fair at the convention center, picking up little goodies for presents to bring back home. Let’s check out what Jake, T and I ate on our last day in Portland.

Our last breakfast in Portland …

portland, oregon – day three recap

Welcome to Portland again, dear friends, as we explore and recap the third day of our trip. It’s a bit of doozy with the photos!
1) Stepping Stone Cafe

I will admit that the Stepping Stone Cafe did not initially make my itinerary. Jake and I watched an old episode of Man v. Food before our trip and Jake really wanted to go here. So I fit it in. Aren’t I a nice girlfriend? (Just nod and say yes.)

This is part of …

portland, oregon – day two recap

This is a hefty post. Just warning you in advance.
On our second day in Portland, we headed out to the Alberta Arts district for breakfast.
Pine State Biscuits

Specifically at Pine State Biscuits. I seriously only meant to order a few things but everything sounded SO GOOD…

I might have over ordered a little bit. Oops.

[biscuits and gravy / $5]
No one cried over my choices or massive amount of food. I’m sure the boys would have been happy to have ONLY eaten here …

portland, oregon – day one

Last month Jake, T and I took a little trip up to Portland, OR. Oregon is a place I’ve wanted to visit since I was in high school. I almost applied to a few schools there before deciding it against it but the dream of visiting Oregon has always lingered. I’ve seen a few other posts from my blogger friends talking about the awesome Portland food scene up there so finally we made it a reality! Here’s a recap of …

During Food Fight Write, we got standard convention breakfast (re: trays of mostly warm eggs, bacon, and such, though one day there was also a Bloody Mary Bar…) and our lunches fared much better (BBQ!). Usually we were on our own for dinner and one evening I ventured out to Carson Kitchen with a couple of other bloggers. I had heard people talking about Carson Kitchen and got recommendations for it from other bloggers so I figured it be a …

Food Fight Write was an amazing conference and the first food blogger conference I ever attended. I drove into Vegas with my parents (who are retired and can pretty much go on a trip on a whim) so I wouldn’t have to do the drive alone.
