The Marble Room / San Diego Restaurant Week Preview | Downtown San Diego

The fine folks at McFarlane Promotions invited me once again to have a complimentary meal for San Diego Restaurant Week (January 16th-21st, 2011).

Islands Restaurant Has Addicitive French Fries

I’ve always liked Islands Restaurant. Jake doesn’t like it and neither do my parents. I think they’re crazy. I still go here from time to time even though I think it’s way overpriced. Maybe I’m just a sucker. One sort of new-ish thing they have now are these little Sliders. […] Read More

twilight birthday cake & cupcakes

I have a confession to make. I love the Twilight series. And I’m in my 30’s. Jake’s daughter, who just turned 11, also loves Twilight. She’s got way more cool Twilight-related things than I do, since I only have the books and movies. At least I don’t have a stand […] Read More

Roast pork belly is a fine way to celebrate Christmas

Christmas has always been a lo-key event for my family and I. The majority of our family live in Massachusetts, which is quite a ways away from us, so we pretty much never see our family around the holidays. The only time we spent Christmas in MA was one year […] Read More

Cotixan Mexican Food / Mira Mesa – San Diego, CA

Cotixan Mexican Food in Mira Mesa is a double drive through window kind of place. It used to be a different drive through place with some really greasy Mexican grub (I don’t remember the name of it) but it used to be one of the only late night food places […] Read More
