November 14th, 2014Las Vegas, Mary, Road Tripsmary 4 Comments

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 …

fish sauce wings + pretzel crust pizza from little caesars

Earlier this week after Jake played a game of softball, I was RAGING hungry. I felt like I wanted to punch something because it felt like my stomach was punching me back.
“FEED ME, WOMAN!” 
“Okay, stomach. Geez. Take a chill pill.”
After his game I really, really wanted some chicken wings and I ended up getting an order of deliciously crispy and slightly sweet Fish Sauce Wings from Que Huong.

mini monster donuts + halloween
November 6th, 2014etc, Mary, Recipesmary 2 Comments

It’s November now and Halloween was pretty much wiped from the stores in early October so who cares about Halloween? 
I do!
I didn’t do anything really fancy for Halloween but I thought these things were cute enough to share. Bear with me. 
I saw these Mini Donut Spiders on Pinterest that just use store bought mini donuts and I thought, “HEY. That is super cute. I’m going to do that for the office work party.”

salt’s cure / los angeles

The day after Catalina and Mozza fun, Jake and I met up with Heather for what I will now call “The Perfect Breakfast”. Why the Perfect Breakfast? Because every single thing we had was incredibly delicious. You know usually you like one thing more than another, or one thing tasted kinda “meh” and there was one stand out dish. Not here. Everything. Was. Delicious. So delicious that I had to put each word as it’s own sentence.

The place where we …

osteria mozza / los angeles

After we spend the day in Catalina, we made our way towards Hollywood to check in to our seedy motel (at least the parking was free…) and then off we went to meet Alyssa for dinner at Osteria Mozza. Osteria Mozza is like the fine dining version of Pizzeria Mozza, owned by the same group of people: Nancy Silverton, Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich. My particular interest in Osteria Mozza was that I heard they have a Mozzarella Bar and …
