friday foodie finds / part three
October 17th, 2014etc, Mary, productsmary 10 Comments

I dig doing my “foodie finds” posts and I hope you enjoy them, too! These are all things that didn’t warrant their own full post, but are still worth mentioning! 

Actually this first thing isn’t a “find”. I made these deviled eggs! I don’t even have a real recipe for them. I just scoop out the yolks and then squirt in little mustard, add mayo, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and smoked paprika to taste. Then I add another little dash of paprika …

borrego springs / salton sea / mount laguna

Getting around to Part 2 of our little weekend trip out to the desert! You can refresh your memory with Borrego Springs Part 1 over here, if you’d like to. Don’t worry, I’ll wait.

After grabbing lunch, visiting “The Mall” and checking into our hotel, Jake and I decided to drive out to visit the Salton Sea. Neither of us had ever been and we were curious what it was like. It’s about a half hour drive away from Borrego Springs, down a winding two lane road in the desert.

claire’s on cedros / solana beach

Last week I was up quite early to take my folks to the airport. 4:30AM to be exact. By the time I got back home I felt pretty awake and decided to get ready and then take myself out for breakfast. I hadn’t visited Claire’s on Cedros since 2011 and I had a strong urge for their pancakes again.

[coffee / $3]
It was quite early and I decided to get coffee for some reason, which was kind of a dumb idea …

nessy burgers / fallbrook
October 14th, 2014Fallbrook, Mary, San Diego Countymary 8 Comments

On the way back home from Jake’s sister’s house in Temecula one recent weekend, we stopped for a little grub in Fallbrook. I had heard about Nessy Burgers awhile ago but they seemed to close early and Jake and I hadn’t managed to visit. Jake’s sister recommended the spot and we decided it was time to check out Nessy Burgers.

Nessy Burgers used to be in a little shack right next to the gas station off the I-15 and SR-76. They were …

Howdy folks. It’s Monday again. MINION MONDAY. I love this whole “let someone else write for Monday” thing.

Tucked in near the Del Mar Horse Park, Cafe Cantata sits at the forefront of the recently revamped Flower Hill Promenade. Though we weren’t on our way to play with the ponies, Allison and I were both …

win tickets to the wedge cheese festival in escondido!

Did you know that there’s a Cheese Festival that takes place in San Diego County? CHEESE FEST! Dear god, how did I not ever know about this before?!

The Wedge Cheese Festival is a local wine, beer and cheese festival happening up in Escondido, CA on October 25, 2014. I was invited to go to the event but as this falls on my birthday, I already made other plans for the day! How sad. A whole festival of cheese on my …

zombie cake (+daryl)
October 9th, 2014cake decorating, Marymary 12 Comments

It’s October which means it’s the start of MEGA BIRTHDAY MONTH. S had his birthday last week and Jake also had his birthday last Sunday (which we are celebrating this Friday). Just a few other October birthdays? Jake’s sister, my aunt, like three of my cousins, oh and of course ME. Did I mention that I love October? I do.
I was on birthday cake duty and S asked for a zombie cake for his birthday this year. I’ve made a …

apple picking in julian + apple pie crumb bars

Last year Jake, Laura, T and I went pear picking in Julian and this year we’re back to apple picking. I actually wanted to go pear picking again, or to find a farm that had both apples and pears, but sadly apple picking season is very, very short this year. O’Dells, where we went pear picking last year, was already closed for the season along with many other orchards. California’s drought has really hit the orchards hard this year and I …
