el rey de las fritas / little havana – miami, fl
June 4th, 2014Florida, Mary, Road Tripsmary 4 Comments

I only have a few Florida related posts left, so let me get to another one before I forget all about what Florida was like!
After cruising around Key West in the humid warm weather, we left the Keys and traveled up to Miami. I really wanted to have lunch in Miami and picked a place in Little Havana called El Rey de las Fritas.

I read about fritas on Yelp and after doing a Google search and they sounded interesting enough. …

a short break
June 2nd, 2014etc, Marymary 22 Comments

I’m taking a break from blogging today. My grandfather, Raymond, who has just moved out here to live with us at the end of April, passed away on Friday after getting gallbladder surgery and having complications after spending almost three weeks in the hospital. He was 86 years old. My cousin, Jake and I were at his side when he passed and while it was incredibly difficult, I’m glad that we were there for him in the end. He was …

donut panic / grantville – san diego, ca

I first heard about Donut Panic from a post CC made on her blog about it. I read “fancy gourmet flavors” and “reasonable price” and I was instantly interested! After a ho hum experience with Donut Bar, I’ve been wary of any gourmet donuts with high prices but the reasonable price part struck a cord with me and I wanted to check it out. I told Jake about it and he actually stopped in here without me and talked to …

new york buffalo wings & ribs / la mesa – san diego, ca

Last weekend I had a craving for some wings. I don’t know why, but lately I’ve been craving wings left and right. I also only like the “wing” part. I’ll eat a drumette if that’s all that’s left but I’d much rather eat the wing. You keep those drumettes to yourself and we’ll be good. I use Yelp a lot to find places but I always take the reviews with a grain of salt. Just because something’s popular doesn’t necessarily …

san diego food bloggers bake sale recap
May 28th, 2014etc, Marymary 2 Comments

Not too long ago we had the 4th annual San Diego Food Bloggers Bake Sale! This year’s bake sale was organized by Susanne of Lil Ms. Sueshine. We branched off from the national bake sale this year and instead did our own thing and support a local cause – specifically we raised money to support the Food 4 Kids Backpack Program for the San Diego Food Bank. Our little group this year raised $540.45 for the Food Bank which is …

key lime desserts hunting in key west, fl
May 26th, 2014Florida, Mary, Road Tripsmary 12 Comments

Jake and I had a goal to try a bunch of different Key Lime desserts while we were in Florida (and Key West). We didn’t quite get to try as many as we wanted to but we still got a variety. Desserts are listed in the order that we ate them.

1) Yoder’s Key Lime Pie
Yoder’s Amish Village / Sarasota, FL / $4.50
I already talked about this over here on this post. Fluffy, light, creamy, almost like “Key Lime lite” but …

[recipe] one pot alfredo pasta
May 23rd, 2014Mary, Recipesmary 6 Comments

I wasn’t really feeling like doing a restaurant post today. My grandfather, who moved out here to live with us from Massachusetts just a month ago, has been in the hospital. He had gall bladder surgery but is now having a hard time recovering. Things haven’t been going so great the last couple of days so I haven’t felt like blogging too much.  I’m just going to do a “quickie” for a recipe I made for dinner. Inspired by seeing …

on eight years of blogging (happy happy blogiversary) + 100 things about mary
May 22nd, 2014etc, Marymary 28 Comments

Another year has come and gone… has it really been eight years since I started this thing? My very first post was nothing exciting and looking back at those photos I cringe at the lack of lighting and how I used my phone’s camera to take all of the photos. I can’t even remember what kind of phone I even had back then but it wasn’t fancy like the smart phones we have now. Crazy.
For my blogiversary post I thought …
