carnitas uruapan revist

We hadn’t been back to Carnitas Uruapan in awhile. If you remember, I like calling this place Uhura (Star Trek, yo) instead because I kept forgetting how to say “Uruapan.” It pretty much still happens to this day. Sometimes I’ll just look at Jake and say “Uhuraaaaaaa!” and he’ll know what it is that I want. Ain’t that awesome?

I last wrote about Carintas Uruapan back in 2013 (thought we’ve been back many times) and I’m happy to see that the menu …

trader joe’s spring edition finds
April 10th, 2015Mary, productsmary 6 Comments

Time for more Trader Joe’s finds! I’ll call it the “Spring Edition”. These items are mostly new to me, not necessarily new for spring. But it is spring now, so Spring Edition it is!

CC of Pink Candles at Ridgemont High alerted me to the fact that Danish Kringles were back at Trader Joe’s. I was totally bummed I missed out on them last year (around Christmas they had almond kringles and there were pumpkin kringles in the Fall). I was excited to try the …

vindiego wine and food festival

The 3rd Annual VinDiego Wine and Food Festival is coming up this weekend! I attended the very first VinDiego festival when it was held back at the Broadway Pier netting some gorgeous sunset photos.

Preeeeeeeeeeeeety.
Since VinDiego is over in Liberty Station this year, expect less pretty sunset photos from me and more photos like these:

Veggie Pasta from the first VinDiego (yum yum)

I’m certain that someone, somewhere at this event will have cheese samples out. Wine + cheese is a magical pairing …

a tale of two pans: cream pan and the apple pan

You know you’ve found the right partner in life when you’re sitting at home watching a travel food program, see a restaurant in Los Angeles that you want to try, and your partner says, “Let’s go next weekend!” even though he hates Los Angeles. Boys that are willing to do all of the driving and take you to LA just to try food are my kind of boys. ?
That’s how we found ourselves one recent Sunday morning – getting up …

taste of hillcrest giveaway

The 15th Taste of Hillcrest is just around the corner, you guys! Taste of Hillcrest was the very first ever “taste” event I went to and it is by far one of the largest taste events in San Diego with over 40 restaurants participating. I’ve never been able to hit up all the spots in the 4 hour time limit, but it’s always fun to try. Check out the places we hit up at last year’s Taste of Hillcrest for an …

padres fan fest 2015 + lolitas

This weekend over at Petco Park they started gearing up for the opening of the 2015 baseball season. The Padres held their annual Fan Fest and we attended so the kids (and Jake) could get a few autographs from the players.

It was a very early morning start on Saturday. We got the stadium about 7:45AM. We had one member ticket and were hoping they would let us in at the 8AM time slot but sadly that wasn’t the case. I …

juniper & ivy

My friend Alyssa (who used to write for this blog!) recently came back to San Diego to visit with her husband, J, and her two adorable little ones. She made plans to go to Juniper & Ivy and invited me along! I’ve been interested in trying out Juniper & Ivy for so long and was glad to get the chance to hang out with my best good friend and to eat tasty delicious things.

Juniper and Ivy is one of chef …
