south bay food crawl

Very recently Jake, T and I went on a South Bay Food Crawl hosted by CC of Pink Candles at Ridgemont High. Jinxi of Jinxi Eats + S joined us on the crawl as well. We explored a few spots in the South Bay and had a great time trying out some new foods!
Stop #1: Birria de Res

Our first stop was at a place down near Imperial Beach called Fernandez Restaurant and Catering. The restaurant looks like it’s on the bottom floor …

I don’t know if you’ll be able to tell or not (I hope so) but I just learned a bunch of things about lightning and food styling at Food Fight Write last week and this is my first post where I’m trying out some of those new “tricks”. Luckily I had the perfect subject to work with as I had just received a complimentary box of yumminess from Melissa’s Produce. Melissa’s Produce challenged local bloggers to create something new with …

Short post today since I feel I am not “fully recovered” from Vegas yet. Or rather, I have so many ideas running through my head from the conference that I couldn’t focus enough to do a longer post. Hah!
Recently I met up with CC from Pink Candles at Ridgemont High. She had some birthday goodies for me and more importantly, travel information about my next fun trip to Portland! It’ll be our first visit to Portland and I’m starting to gather …

No real post to close out the week because I’m in Vegas! Last week I won a Twitter contest and won a pass to the Food Fight Write Food Blogger conference here in Vegas, which is going on in conjunction with the World Food Championships (which is like a crazy big food competition event). Here’s a few photos to tide you over in the mean time.

The conference is taking place at the Plaza Hotel in Downtown Las Vegas. The Plaza …

[recipe] pumpkin chocolate chip pecan bread
November 12th, 2014Mary, Recipesmary 2 Comments

Back in the day when Mira Mesa still had a Ralph’s instead of the mega H-Mart, I would pop into Ralph’s in the fall to pick up some of the pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. They were like one of the bakery items that I always loved to get at Ralph’s and I never really tried to make it on my own. Since Ralph’s is no one near me now and I don’t think it’s worth it enough to drive to …

rita’s italian ice – mira mesa

Rita’s Italian Ice is slowly infiltrating all of San Diego by popping up new locations all over the place! The Rita’s in Mira Mesa opened about two weeks ago and I decided to stop by for a little quickie visit last week.

This location is in the inner part of Mira Mesa off of Camino Ruiz, near Capricorn Way. There’s a new(ish) California Donuts shop nearby, a Filipino restaurant, Little Caesar’s, Azteca Mexican (a market) and Ariana Produce (another market). Ariana …

cucina basilico

This past weekend I had wanted to go check out Chicken Charlie’s new restaurant, but a quick overview of some recent reviews made me think twice about it and I decided that we would wait until they worked out some of their kinks. Instead I turned to browsing through my Entertainment Book to see if there were any decent coupons to use and that’s how I found Cucina Basilico.

Coupon love. <3
I did a little bit of research and found the reviews …
