country waffles / clairemont – san diego, ca

Last Saturday when it was all crazy rainy and stuff, I had to take my car in for service for it’s very first (and hopefully only) recall. It was going to take hours and they wouldn’t give me a rental, so I had to blow off most of my Saturday for that. Luckily Jake was willing to come and pick me up and entertain me while my Shiny (yes, that’s what I call it – Firefly thing) was getting looked …

red lobster / mira mesa – san diego, ca

Time for some chain restaurant dining reviews! Woo! Last week my momma won big at the casino and took us all out to dinner to Red Lobster to celebrate. Since she was buying, she choose the restaurant. Big time rollers here, you know. Let’s see how Red Lobster is doing these days, shall we?

I’ve cloned these cheddar biscuits back in the day but the real thing is still mighty tasty with that hint of garlic, a little bit …

fluffy duffy’s snow cream / college – san diego, ca

Last week after Jake’s first softball game of the new season (they had a two week break and won 20-9 for their first game, woohoo!), we headed over to Milo’s Pizza for a couple of slices of our favorite pizza (ricotta/mushroom is my favorite topping now). Lo and behold next to Milo’s was this place:

Fluffy Duffy’s Snow Cream! What! It had been maybe a little over a month since we had last been to Milo’s and the place next door …

[recipe/review] peanut butter chocolate chip cookies
March 3rd, 2014Mary, products, Recipesmary 4 Comments

Peanut butter is probably one of my most favorite things in life. Peanut butter + chocolate is one of those killer combinations that is so very hard to resist as well. If you want me to be in your favor, give me peanut butter and I’ll be in your corner. Enter a new, local product that’s hit the shelves around town recently called Pacific Beach Peanut Butter.

The peanut butter spread (which is a “spread” because “peanut butter” must contain 90% …

I don’t know about you, but I am kind of a messy eater. For some reason, it’s seems hard to balance food on my fork and it barely gets into my mouth. I get teased for not knowing how to use chopsticks, but really, when it seems like I can barely use a fork sometimes it seems really extra silly for me to try and use chopsticks. I always get crumbs, or noodle bits, or bits of sauce all over …

hogetsu bakery / chula vista, ca

I heard of Hogetsu Bakery awhile ago – after all, this place has been around for decades – but I didn’t get around to visiting until this past weekend. Hogetsu specialized in Japanese tea cakes (mochi and the like) and is run by a husband and wife team.

We almost passed right by it – it’s in a nondescript strip mall with a bunch of other plain looking buildings. Nothing really stood out here and I have a feeling it looks …

teriyaki grill / chula vista, ca

Over the weekend Jake and I went to pick up the kids (S and A) for lunch. Originally we were going to go to Project Pie over at the mall, but once we went inside there we saw a long line in front of us, no more seats and it was super loud… so we abandoned that plan and I came up with a Plan B. We had just gotten some desserts from Hogetsu Bakery so I decided to keep …

revisit to callahan’s / mira mesa – san diego, ca
February 25th, 2014Mary, Mira Mesa, San Diego Countymary 8 Comments

It’s been quite awhile since I last posted about Callahan’s… like, five years actually! The place looks the same once you step inside but now they have a fancier looking menu – one sheet instead of the book they used to have, but with many of the same offerings as before. I visited here last Friday with my friend Laura. We needed a little grub before we could sit down to watch some Downton Abbey! Since I only watch it …
