del taco epic burritos + a giveaway

Recently I was invited to check out one of Del Taco’s newest creations: the Epic Burrito.
Let me start by saying that I’ve hardly ever eaten at Del Taco before. I’ve had french fries there… and I think a hamburger once when we were in Palm Springs and needed a bite to eat… and uh… yeah, that’s about it, really. There isn’t one really close to Mira Mesa and it wasn’t something I was ever dying to check out. Jake’s been …

holly jolly mocktails at the pony room/ rancho santa fe – san diego, ca

If you’re looking for an alternative way to celebrate the coming of the New Year, something a little more on the sober side, you might want to check out some of the holiday “Mocktails” that a few restaurants have got on tap this season.
 
There are three participants in North Coastal Prevention Coalition’s 2nd annual Holly Jolly Mocktails helping to spread some sober, festive cheer this season.
1) “Holiday Peppermint Patty” – Casa De Bandini: A chocolate and peppermint concoction which makes me …

monello / little italy – san diego, ca

Last month my old friend, Sarah, was in town for a short visit. Sarah is one of my oldest friends, who I’ve known since the ripe old age of 10. She was staying overnight in Little Italy and so I chose a spot nearby, a place I’ve been wanting to try forever: Monello! This was originally supposed to be our last stop on the Cheese Crawl, but we were all too full to go to another restaurant.
Jake was a little …

christmas cookies

Merry Christmas!@#! It’s like in the 70′s here in San Diego and as I was running around doing some last minute things on Christmas Eve I actually turned on the A/C in my car. We are so freaking spoiled here, I love it.
 
I’m doing a quick round up on my Christmas goodies this year. First up: these super cute Snickerdoodle Reindeer cookies. Usually I do Peanut Butter, but I had the sugar cookie dough and I was too lazy to …

san diego cellars / little italy – san diego, ca

Last month I was invited to go and check out San Diego Cellars, a new winery/wine bar that’s located on the north side of Little Italy, just a little ways from the main drag. San Diego Cellars will be in the perfect spot as Little Italy and the surrounding area expands a bit. For now, it’s on the quieter side of Little Italy, or as I call it, the side with easier parking!

As I am primarily a food blogger for …

[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. …

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.
