macarons at blush desserts

Last week I was out and about in the Convoy area and I decided to pop in to see what kind of treats they had over at Blush Desserts. Initally I just wandered in just for a look-see. I didn’t promise myself I would actually buy anything and my intentions were to only buy a strawberry cheesecake macaron if they had them. And if not, then nothing.
That obviously did not pan out the way I thought it would. I peeked on the macaron …

taste of hillcrest 2015 recap

A few weekends ago I was invited to attend Taste of Hillcrest again and I happily obliged. This year I did not have a partner in crime though since Jake was coaching Little League. I asked a few friends to go but they couldn’t make it either and I ended up having to go alone. But that’s okay, I was able power through part of it and I ended up meeting with Lynn of oh-so yummy and Faye of Faye’s …

tacos el g

I went to Tacos el G (which I thought was Tacos el Gordo) last weekend with Jake, T, and Laura on Saturday night. We had just gone to see The Avengers over at the Regal Cinemas off East H Street (only $5.50 for an evening ticket!) and I wanted tacos. Laura had never been to Tacos el Gordo and we figured the National City location would be a little less crazy than the Chula Vista spot. Sadly I did NOT realize this …

May 4th, 2015etc, Marymary 2 Comments

Today is Star Wars Day, my friends. Let’s do a little geeky post celebrating one of my favorite movies of all time!
This past Saturday, Jake, S and I were headed down south and S pointed out a something and said, “Dad, look, R2D2!” I looked around but I didn’t see it, assuming it was some kind of sticker or something on the back of the car. Jake proceeded to turn around the block to go back and look at the …

draft republic

Draft Republic is a relatively new spot from the Cohn Restaurant Group that opened up in the La Jolla/UTC area. It’s not too far from my office and I’ve been here for a lunch a couple of times with my co-workers. It’s a really nice spot – there’s a big parking lot right next to the restaurant so you don’t have to stress about that (like you do if you go to UTC), it’s a big open layout in the …

anniversary dinner at toast enoteca & cucina

Jake and I recently celebrated our 8th anniversary! EIGHT. E-I-G-H-T. It is crazy how fast time flies by. When Jake and I started dating, his youngest son (S) was only four years old! And S will be 13 this year! Holy crazy cakes, Batman.
Jake and I have been through a lot of ups and downs but I feel like the last few years have been more ups overall which makes me quite happy. I wouldn’t change anything and everything …

[revisit] chef john’s fish and chips

Earlier this month Jake wanted to check out a taco shop called Tacos Al Pastor over in the Lemon Grove/Spring Valley area. It was kind of in the middle of nowhere, in a tiny strip mall amongst a lot of houses. Sadly it was closed and Jake couldn’t realize the dream of trying out this tiny shop. Since I was getting to the point of no hunger return, we opted to go to a place we’d been before. A little …
