new year’s eve 2014 recap
January 8th, 2015Mary, Recipesmary 6 Comments

I meant to post this last week but instead of writing on New Year’s Day we sat around in our PJ’s and played video games. And then I had to work on Friday. #thestruggleisreal

On New Year’s Eve I went shopping for groceries in Carmel Mountain Ranch. It was cloudy, dark, and drizzly and at about 12PM we reached a high of 45 degrees. What in the what?! I know for someone who doesn’t live in San Diego this might seem …

85c bakery

85c Bakery opened up in San Diego back in November 2014 and I remember there being so much hype about it! There are a few in the north land (aka Orange County/LA) and I read about long lines over opening weekend. I decided to wait a bit before venturing over there last month for the first time. I’d hadn’t been to any of the other locations, even though I’d heard so much about them. Long lines pretty much keep me …

portland, oregon – day one

Last month Jake, T and I took a little trip up to Portland, OR. Oregon is a place I’ve wanted to visit since I was in high school. I almost applied to a few schools there before deciding it against it but the dream of visiting Oregon has always lingered. I’ve seen a few other posts from my blogger friends talking about the awesome Portland food scene up there so finally we made it a reality! Here’s a recap of …

salt & cleaver

Salt & Cleaver is a restaurant located over in Hillcrest. I remember when they were talking about opening this place in San Diego that originally they wanted to call it “Abe Froman’s” from a character in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”. Abe Froman was the “Sausage King of Chicago” in the movie and I thought it would have been a much cooler name, but hey… it is what it is. Jake and I first sampled Salt and Cleaver earlier this year …

It’s the last day of the year already?! And look at San Diego, having *REAL* winter weather. Awww!
I didn’t prep a real post today since I’m on mini vacation from work, so here’s a super cute photo of Maya ready for New Year’s Eve.

I picked up these rad glasses at the Dollar Tree yesterday and decided Maya needed to model them. Doesn’t she look thrilled?

 After a few model shots, she dumped them right off her head.
“No more, please.”
We’re ready for …

coops west texas bbq
December 29th, 2014Lemon Grove, Mary, San Diego Countymary 5 Comments

We left for Portland on a Wednesday and we still needed a little bit of lunch for our bellies. Jake and I had both received a buy one get one free coupon for a sandwich at Coop’s West Texas BBQ for our “unbirthday” from iBirthdayClub.com. We misread it and thought it was for a free sandwich, not a BOGO, but either way it turned out fine. 

Our lunch! It had been awhile since we’d been back to Coops and we hadn’t …

qt pot / mira mesa
December 24th, 2014Mary, Mira Mesa, San Diego Countymary 6 Comments

QT Pot opened in Mira Mesa earlier this year. I went for my first visit with my co-workers back in September and finally remembered to make a revisit last week to try some of their other items.

On one side of their menu it’s all hot pots! They all vary a little.

And the other side has appetizers and more “regular” Chinese food plus grilled meats on a stick! I like food on a stick.

[house special pot / $9.50 – lunch price]

peanut butter cup cookies
December 22nd, 2014Mary, Recipesmary 8 Comments

This weekend I did a ton of baking! I made cracker candy again (this year with a new flavor: white Chocolate with lime zest and salt!), lemon ricotta cookies and these babies: peanut butter cup cookies.

They might be my new favorite cookie. They have peanut butter cookies WITH a Reese’s mini peanut butter cup INSIDE. This is magic, I tell you.

I like these more than peanut butter blossoms and plain old peanut butter cookies. Having that extra bit of chocolate/peanut …
