mini monster donuts + halloween
November 6th, 2014etc, Mary, Recipesmary 2 Comments

It’s November now and Halloween was pretty much wiped from the stores in early October so who cares about Halloween? 
I do!
I didn’t do anything really fancy for Halloween but I thought these things were cute enough to share. Bear with me. 
I saw these Mini Donut Spiders on Pinterest that just use store bought mini donuts and I thought, “HEY. That is super cute. I’m going to do that for the office work party.”

salt’s cure / los angeles

The day after Catalina and Mozza fun, Jake and I met up with Heather for what I will now call “The Perfect Breakfast”. Why the Perfect Breakfast? Because every single thing we had was incredibly delicious. You know usually you like one thing more than another, or one thing tasted kinda “meh” and there was one stand out dish. Not here. Everything. Was. Delicious. So delicious that I had to put each word as it’s own sentence.

The place where we …

osteria mozza / los angeles

After we spend the day in Catalina, we made our way towards Hollywood to check in to our seedy motel (at least the parking was free…) and then off we went to meet Alyssa for dinner at Osteria Mozza. Osteria Mozza is like the fine dining version of Pizzeria Mozza, owned by the same group of people: Nancy Silverton, Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich. My particular interest in Osteria Mozza was that I heard they have a Mozzarella Bar and …

catalina island birthday promo

My big birthday freebie this year was going to Catalina Island! Catalina Express offers a free round trip ticket on your actual birthday (value: $74). That’s the big catch – that you must leave on your birthday. Since my birthday fell on a Saturday this year, it was the perfect day to finally be able to visit Catalina.

They give you a birthday ribbon to wear. The birthday ribbon entitles you to various freebies and everyone wishes you a happy birthday …

birthday dinner at d bar

This is not the freebie birthday post. Those will start tomorrow! This is the “it’s my birthday and I just want to go out to eat” post at one of my favorite restaurants, D Bar in Hillcrest. I actually prefer the lunch menu to the dinner menu, but as long as you load me up with some macaroni and cheese then no one will get hurt. 
I had a few friends join me for dinner! Let’s see some of the tasty …

vessel restaurant at kona kai resort

I’m on the verge of wrapping up all of my birthday goodies for my free birthday posts – so stay tuned for those very soon! But first… let’s take a peek at a recent Media Dinner I was invited to attend earlier this month at the Vessel Restaurant at the Kona Kai Resort. I visited the Vessel Restaurant last year for another media dinner and this time around Stacey tagged along for the fun.
The restaurant has been renovated since last …

la dumpling crawl

Two weekends ago we embarked on yet another food crawl. This crawl’s theme? DUMPLINGS.
Now, while I love dumplings and I love San Diego, San Diego has a serious lack of delicious dumplings so we headed north to Los Angeles for a dumpling crawl. Sorry, San Diego. I still love you.
The following dumplings are in order of visitation. I’ll give you the low-down on the numbers and statistics at the end of this post (or you can skip to end if …
