[recipe] blueberry lemon bread pudding
December 23rd, 2013Mary, Recipesmary 0 Comments

The holidays usually involve lots of cookies for dessert, but if you’re looking for a little something different for dessert this holiday, check out this one! It’s a blueberry lemon bread pudding – something creamy, with a bit of crunchy, a little zing of lemon and the pop of wild blueberries.

I was sent some coupons to try out Wyman’s Wild Blueberries, which were the perfect vessel for this dessert.

Wyman’s blueberries are freshly picked in the wild and frozen. They are …

Yeah… what I said in the title!
I was too busy yesterday to get my act together to do a proper post today. I went to the Headquarters last night for a very fun blogger event that involved lots of samples and lots of window shopping. And then I came home to bake up some cookies to give to Jake’s softball team for their final game of the year (until next year after the holidays!). 
These are White Chocolate Peppermint Oreo Cookies!

 They …

rocky’s crown pub / pacific beach – san diego, ca

I’ve been wanting to take Jake here for a long ass time and a few weeks ago I was finally able to take him! We tried to go a few times this week, mistakenly making the attempt on the weekend or during prime sports game viewing periods. These are NOT the ideal times to go since Rocky’s is not a big place. We ended up going one Wednesday evening after Jake’s first league softball game (his team’s name? Ball Busters. …

el indio mexican restaurant / mission hills – san diego, ca

Jake and I had been thinking about/trying to go to El Indio for awhile before we finally made it in last month. We’ve been driven off by either no parking or frightened of the long line we saw inside but once we finally made it in, we got the scoop on the place and I think we could manage to make it in more often when the urge strikes.

They have indoor and outdoor seating and we opted to sit inside …

[product review & giveaway] soofoo (super good food)
December 13th, 2013Giveaways, Mary, productsmary 77 Comments

I got a new product for you to take a gander at. It’s called SooFoo. I know this looks like its some kind of super crazy too-good-for-you-probably-tastes-like-dirt-and-sticks kind of thing. And I know it looks like that because I kind of thought that looking at the packaging…

BUT… I actually ended up liking it. My parents didn’t really like it, though. My dad thought it looked like there were crickets or bugs in it and that there was maybe some twigs in …

hanna garden / miramar – san diego, ca
December 11th, 2013Mary, Miramar, San Diego Countymary 10 Comments

This is another installing of “lunching adventures with co-workers!” Man, I think I need a catchier name than THAT. This time around we went to a place pretty close to our office, called Hanna Garden off Miramar Rd. (behind the McDonald’s). They have a small menu, specializing in Mediterranean and Lebanese food. Here’s some photos of the menu (which are slightly cut off – blogger fail): Pages 1-2, Page 3

I decided to try something new that I never had before …

zooies cookies / san diego, ca
December 9th, 2013Central San Diego, Mary, productsmary 4 Comments

Not too long ago I had heard about this new cookie shop opening up… inside of a gas station! I was invited to the grand opening, but wasn’t able to make it in, but then I was offered a chance to come in and sample the cookies.
As if I could possibly turn down a cookie tasting. COME ON.

Zooies is inside of the APRO 26 (76 gas station) which is apart of the United Oil Co. and is located on Market Street …

my favorite childhood treat: pocky!
December 6th, 2013etc, Mary, productsmary 4 Comments

Simple post time! Mostly because I want to go finish this book I’m reading called Reboot. It’s basically a book about a girl who died and was “rebooted” and came back to life – now she’s stronger and faster before, almost kind of like a vampire… but not a vampire. More like a human devoid of emotions. There’s a thread of dystopia running through the novel and I have only a few chapters left until I’m done! Hence the short …

about this site

My name is Mary and I live in San Diego. I've been blogging since 2006 as a hobby - it's my fun, creative outlet! Some random things about me: I'm a front end web developer, I love peanut butter, cookies, warm cupcakes, puppy noses, star gazing, new bags of sugar, sprinkles, cupcake wrappers, egg rolls, eating french fries with ice cream, driving with the windows down, snuggling, wes anderson movies, staying up too late reading a good book and Jake. These are my adventures in all things food. Hope you enjoy the ride.
