[product review] zone 8 honey lemon tea (kickstarter)
July 29th, 2013Mary, productsmary 2 Comments

I’m always up for trying new things, as you well know. Recently, I had a gentlemen offer to send me some of his all natural, organic tea called Zone 8. Zone 8 takes pride in being a 100% all natural, no preservatives, no artificial anything beverage that anyone can enjoy.

I’m totally a big believer in making things from scratch and using ingredients that you can actually pronounce, so it made me happy to see someone trying to start up with …

[recipe] lemon bliss bundt cake

Earlier this month for Jake’s Mom’s birthday, I made her a cake!

A lemon bundt cake – pound cake kind of thing. I decided to call it “lemon bliss” because it’s blissfully delicious. It’s based on a recipe I found on the King Arthur Flour’s website with a couple of little additions.

This cake doesn’t have frosting on it, but it does have lemon glaze which soaks into the cake for a day or two. It’s a great thing to bring to …

wich addiction / mira mesa – san diego, ca

Earlier this month, I had lunch with CC of Pink Candles of Ridgemont High and Faye of Faye’s Fork. I originally wanted to take them to Mamma Lina’s for some awesomely cheap ravioli lunch, only to find they were closed for two weeks for some kind of summer vacation. I guess you can do that kind of thing when you run your own factory.
My backup plan was Wich Addiction since it was really close by. I hadn’t visited Wich Addiction …

cream pan bakery & cafe / tustin, ca (and river tubing!)
July 22nd, 2013Mary, Orange County, Tustinmary 10 Comments

I decided to do an easy post today because I am tired from Mother Nature beating me up this past Saturday. Story at the end of this post, if you are interested in the non-food side of things.
A couple weekends ago, Jake, T, my dad and I went up to Anaheim to catch an Angels vs. Red Sox game. It was my present to my dad for his birthday, since he’s a Red Sox fan and hardly ever gets to …

peking restaurant / westminster – orange county, ca

Last month Jake and I made the return trip up to LAX to pick up my folks who were away in the Philippines for six weeks. My “reward” for going north and sitting in traffic is finding a new spot to eat at and this time around I decided we had to have Chinese food. I had wanted to go to Peking Restaurant when we went up the first time but instead we ended up at Britt’s BBQ (no regrets!). …

royal india / del mar – san diego, ca

I haven’t had a heck of a lot of Indian food. The few items I’ve had, it wasn’t very good and avoided trying it again. I hesitated when I got an invitation to dine at Royal India but then I figured… why not? It won’t hurt me to try it again and since this was a nicer place, I was hoping none of my food would get burned (last time I tried Indian I got burned garlic nan bread… um, …

[recipe] no bake cookie bliss
July 15th, 2013Mary, Recipesmary 6 Comments

I don’t know about you, but when it’s all warm out I don’t feel like doing a whole lot. This includes baking. Turning on the oven sounds like such a horrid idea. It would just make it hotter, you know? Why would I want to deal with that?
But sometimes… I still want some cookies. And Oreo’s don’t always do it for me and my picky self.
I once tried to make some stove top no bake cookies and they turned out …

clementine gourment marketplace & cafe / palm desert, ca

 Jake and I stayed in Palm Springs only one night – so after a very peaceful and restful night at the Riviera, we got started early to try and beat the heat of the day. Originally we went over to a place called Cheeky’s in Downtown Palm Springs, but the prospect of waiting for an hour in the ever-increasing heat was a big turn off for me. We ditched those plans and made our way back down to Palm Desert. …

about this site

My name is Mary and I live in San Diego. I've been blogging since 2006 as a hobby - it's my fun, creative outlet! Some random things about me: I'm a front end web developer, I love peanut butter, cookies, warm cupcakes, puppy noses, star gazing, new bags of sugar, sprinkles, cupcake wrappers, egg rolls, eating french fries with ice cream, driving with the windows down, snuggling, wes anderson movies, staying up too late reading a good book and Jake. These are my adventures in all things food. Hope you enjoy the ride.
