blaze pizza

Some PR peeps for Blaze Pizza sent me some coupons forever ago to try it out the pizza here and I finally got around to it. There’s a location up in far away Carlsbad, one in Encinitas and a newer spot that’s in the Balboa/Genesee area. We tried to go one Saturday evening and quickly realized that Saturday evening was NOT the time to go since the line was out the door. Holy cow. When did Clairemont get to be …

star wars trash compactor cake for my valentine
February 16th, 2015cake decorating, Marymary 6 Comments

Valentine’s Day was over the weekend! I’m sure you realized this, seeing little pop up vendors all over town selling teddy bears and flowers and the insane amount of balloons in the grocery stores. This will be a quickie little post to recap my Valentine’s Day. Specifically, to recap the lovely cake I made for Jake.
Jake usually gets something Star Wars related from me on special occasions. This year I decided to go “all out” and do a whole cake …

dim sum at pearl chinese / san diego

Last month I finally got to try out “sit down with the carts” dim sum for the first time with Faye of Faye’s Fork and Lynn of Oh-So-Yummy at Pearl Chinese. We met up on a Saturday and sat at a big, round table to start stuffing delicious dim sum into our mouths. Sounds like the perfect Saturday to me!

Pearl Chinese is up in Rancho Bernardo and has this beautiful pond/lake in the back area next to the Doubletree Inn. I …

chocolate cupcakes with bourbon ganache
February 11th, 2015Mary, Recipesmary 6 Comments

Bear with me. It’s another Valentine’s post! But this time with chocolate. And cake. And ganache – with Four Roses bourbon in it! I hope you can get behind this.

Now originally for this post, I made the above cupcakes. Which are pretty and fanciful and cute and all. But the flavor of these cupcakes were terrible. They were too dry and tasted almost bitter and was a total failure. I ended up throwing them away because I couldn’t bare the taste …

pho cow cali – mira mesa

Amazingly I have never blogged about Pho Cow Cali even though I’ve been here oh so very many times. There are a few places I frequent that I never blogged about but I’m unsure why. I need to fix that, starting with this post! I honestly hadn’t been to Pho Cow Cali in awhile but last week I was craving it badly.

I actually don’t usually order Pho when I’m here, but rather …

peanut butter pie stuffed strawberries

Valentine’s Day is just on the horizon. It’s peeking over your shoulder! Instead of doing a box of chocolates for Valentine’s Day this year, why not try making something a little more homespun for your sweetie? Today I’m sharing a little recipe that I created using Driscoll’s Strawberries and I’m really excited about them because they turned out way better than I thought they would!

Peanut Butter Pie Stuffed Strawberries.
Doesn’t that sound MAGICAL? 
It totally is. 

I knew I wanted to do some …

blush desserts / kearny mesa

During Chicken Wing Week last month we tried to go to Common Theory. On a Friday night. I guess I forgot we live in a big metropolitan city because the wait time was over 45 minutes and I wasn’t willing to wait. Instead I dragged Jake and T over to Blush Desserts for a few desserts (for later, of course – we ended up just going to In-N-Out for dinner – mustard grilled burgers, awwww yeah). I’ve popped in here a few times but haven’t really taken photos or anything since I’m just now getting around to posting about it! Blush Desserts has tons of pretty macarons to choose from, plus cupcakes, cakes, bars, macaron ice cream sandwiches as well as coffees and teas.
