pumpkin pudding pie with pecan crust + nestfresh giveaway
December 1st, 2014Mary, Recipesmary 5 Comments

I should have posted this before Thanksgiving, but apparently I’m bad at planning ahead for the blog since I made this pie the night before Thanksgiving. Oh well.
I wanted something that was kind of “pumpkin pie lite” and I also wanted a nutty element. But I didn’t want to be super crazy and do like a “combination” pie. Instead what I came up with is a pecan pie-like crust on the bottom with a pumpkin pudding on top. You get …

what i’m thankful for

It’s true. There is always something to be thankful for. And here are a few things that I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving.

My Parents
My parents were only able to have one kid (psst – that’s me) and though I had no choice in the matter, I’m thankful they had me and that they are my parents. They’ve raised me to do the right thing, to be honest and loyal and trustworthy. They’re always there for me no matter what and …

pizza rock / las vegas

Food Fight Write was an amazing conference and the first food blogger conference I ever attended. I drove into Vegas with my parents (who are retired and can pretty much go on a trip on a whim) so I wouldn’t have to do the drive alone.

It’s almost Thanksgiving again! I feel like I haven’t even adjusted to the time change yet and already the holidays are creeping up on me. I’m going to blink three times and it’ll be Christmas. Time, you are going by way too fast.
I’ve started really getting into Pinterest lately and created a Thanksgiving board with tons of ideas for Thanksgiving recipes including side dishes and desserts (plus some crafts). Here are a few of my favorites from the bunch, plus …

[recipe] coconut, ube and mango overnight oats with noosa yogurt
November 21st, 2014Mary, Recipesmary 8 Comments

Noosa Yoghurt is currently my most favorite yogurt (yoghurt!) ever so I was pretty thrilled when they wanted to work with me to create a recipe using Noosa Yoghurt. They have all of these dreamy flavors and it was a little hard to decide just which ONE yogurt I wanted to focus on.

In the end I decided to use the Coconut Noosa Yoghurt and did a little twist on Overnight Oats using tropical Filipino flavors such as coconut, ube (purple …

south bay food crawl

Very recently Jake, T and I went on a South Bay Food Crawl hosted by CC of Pink Candles at Ridgemont High. Jinxi of Jinxi Eats + S joined us on the crawl as well. We explored a few spots in the South Bay and had a great time trying out some new foods!
Stop #1: Birria de Res

Our first stop was at a place down near Imperial Beach called Fernandez Restaurant and Catering. The restaurant looks like it’s on the bottom floor …

[recipe] roasted butternut squash and chicken risotto
November 18th, 2014Mary, Recipesmary 6 Comments

I don’t know if you’ll be able to tell or not (I hope so) but I just learned a bunch of things about lightning and food styling at Food Fight Write last week and this is my first post where I’m trying out some of those new “tricks”. Luckily I had the perfect subject to work with as I had just received a complimentary box of yumminess from Melissa’s Produce. Melissa’s Produce challenged local bloggers to create something new with …

mj’s yogurt time and deli revisit
November 17th, 2014Chula Vista, Mary, San Diego Countymary 6 Comments

Short post today since I feel I am not “fully recovered” from Vegas yet. Or rather, I have so many ideas running through my head from the conference that I couldn’t focus enough to do a longer post. Hah!
Recently I met up with CC from Pink Candles at Ridgemont High. She had some birthday goodies for me and more importantly, travel information about my next fun trip to Portland! It’ll be our first visit to Portland and I’m starting to gather …
