dos equis “most interesting dinner” recap
August 2nd, 2013etc, Marymary 2 Comments

A couple of weeks ago I had the great fortune to attend the Dos Equis “Most Interesting Dinner” with Craig Thornton of Wolvesmouth, which took place during Comic Con and was . I didn’t actually go to Comic Con, but Jake and I did wander around Downtown before the dinner and saw many interesting people and things. It’s amazing to me how every year Comic Con swoops in and changes the landscape of the Gaslamp Quarter and the Convention Center. …

bull’s smokin’ bbq / linda vista – san diego, ca

My co-worker David told me about this place – Bull’s Smokin BBQ – and how they give bones out to the doggies. Dog friendly places are not too hard to fish out here in San Diego where outdoor dining is quite abundant, but it’s nice to see another place that also caters to the puppies!

In case you weren’t sure, there’s a big old sign in the front that tells you without a doubt that this joint is dog friendly!

There’s a …

[product review] chai diaries organic masala chai tea
July 31st, 2013Mary, productsmary 2 Comments

I’ve been on some kind of crazy beverage kick because I’ve got another tea for trying and reviewing!
Though this time, I had to actually make the tea myself. I received Organic Masala Chai loose leaf tea from Chai Diaries. Usually when I have Chai it’s from a bag, or a Chai latte. I recently discovered Ice Chai Lattes (which seems like a MAJOR DUH on my part) so I decided to use this tea to make my own!

Chai Diaries has …

go go sushi & tofu / mira mesa – san diego, ca

There’s this spot in Mira Mesa that seems like such a good spot for a little restaurant… and yet, over the years it’s been quite a few things. Originally it was a Hungry Howie’s Pizza, then it changed into one of those $5 pizza places, then it was a Pho shop, and THEN it was called Po & Pho – a Vietnamese and Po Boy sandwich shop. A few months ago Po & Pho shut down (probably due to it’s …

[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 …

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.
