chris’ ono grinds island grill / mission valley – san diego, ca

Jake, T and I came here shortly after I got back from Boston. I got an Entertainment Book a couple of months ago for only $5 (on tax day!) so I figured it’s about time we start using the sucker for deals! Chris’ Ono Grinds Island Grill was one of the places – but only for the location in Mission Valley (they also have a location in North Park). 

They have a couple of seats outside. One is a glass table …

cinnamon coconut oil ice cream sandwich cookies
July 3rd, 2014Mary, Recipesmary 8 Comments

My plan was to make my Root Beer Float cookies for the Fourth of July this year. Imagine my surprise when I couldn’t find the root beer extract I was so sure was in the cabinets. It wasn’t in the drawers or in my special set of drawers for all of my baking stuff… maybe I used all of it and just don’t remember? Maybe it’s hiding out somewhere behind a big bottle going, “I’m right heeerrrreeeeee!” Oh well. I …

remembering tony gwynn + petco park food

Jake and I have been to a few Padres games at Petco Park this year… more than any other year (so far: four games)! Half of those games have been due to the new $10 Toyota Tuesdays where you can get Toyota Terrace seat tickets for – you guessed it – $10 (did I give that one away?). Toyota Terrance is on the second level at Petco Park so it’s pretty close to the field. Good seats!

Since we have a …

a visit to the jfk library – boston, ma

Warning: this is a non-food post! Just a travel post!

I went to college at Boston University and spent four years living in Boston. In all that time though I never managed to make it to the John F. Kennedy library! We had a little time to kill that morning before we could check into our hotel later (to sleep) and I suggested we go check out the JFK library. The library is located on the UMass Boston campus near the harbor.

my diner / boston, ma

Earlier this month I traveled to Massachusetts for a quick trip with my parents to attend my grandfather’s funeral. While it was a somber occasion and reason, it was nice to be able to get back East for a quick trip, to see my family, and to celebrate my grandfather’s life. 
We took an overnight red eye flight and got into Boston around 6:30AM. Logan International hadn’t quite fully awakened by the time we got off the plane, but the first …

farmers outlet / grantville – san diego, ca

I love going to grocery stores. I know some people are not really into shopping or grocery shopping but I love it! I love looking at new and different products and searching for new things to cook and bake with. Over in Mission Gorge near the Kaiser hospital on Zion there’s this Farmer’s Market that I have eyed for years but have never gone into. A couple of weeks ago after a quick stop for tortas at Tropical Fruit Paradise, I managed to convince Jake that we should check it out. Not that it takes much to convince Jake to do things. Maybe it’s because he likes me or something.

cooking classes and more at the uspca conference in long beach
June 26th, 2014etc, Marymary 4 Comments

I was recently invited to attend the United States Personal Chef Association Conference (USPCA) in Long Beach next month and while feeling a little skeptical about it all at first, now I have to say I’m excited to go! Obviously I am NOT a personal chef, but the conference offers a few classes of interest to me as someone who loves to cook, eat and to blog about it!
Here are a few of the classes at the conference that caught …
