sunny side kitchen
December 28th, 2015Escondido, Mary, San Diego Countymary 6 Comments

A few weekends ago Jake, T and I were up in North County land for another one of Jake’s chiropractor appointments. This little jaunts up north allow us to explore some unknown territory and with the help of the internet I scoped out a place called Sunny Side Kitchen in Escondido.  

Sunny Side Kitchen is a super cute little cafe that’s open for breakfast and lunch. There are a few outdoor tables, too, so you could bring along a furry companion …

pernicano’s

Pasta! There are not a ton of Italian restaurants up in the Mira Mesa area and one evening when Laura came over to hang out with me (so we could watch some Downton Abbey together) she was in the mood for pasta. Pernicano’s came to mind after considering the other nearby options. Pernicano’s is new to the area, though there are other locations in town. It’s located just off Mercy Road, across from the KFC and in the same lot …

crest cafe
December 21st, 2015Hillcrest, Mary, San Diego Countymary 2 Comments

A few weeks ago I was invited to head down to Crest Cafe for a blogger dinner – complete with a van ride thanks to the fine folks from The DD (Drunk Driver) Van Service. Van ride = I don’t have to try and search for parking in Hillcrest = score for me!

I once went to the family owned Crest Cafe many years ago. I think I had a burger there and sat in one of the booths in the …

oatmeal pecan cookies for the 2015 food blogger cookie swap
December 16th, 2015Mary, Recipesmary 10 Comments

I once again decided to participate in the 2015 Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap by making some awesome Oatmeal Pecan Cookies. Each blogger who participated made a donation and the money is donated to Cookies for Kid’s Cancer. Participation involves mailing out three batches of cookies and receiving three batches in return. It’s a win-win for everyone involved!
I decided to go with a really simple cookie based on the Pioneer Woman’s Brown Sugar Cookie recipe. The Pioneer Woman thinks the brown sugar is the star of the …

[revisit] jeong won korean bbq buffet

A few weeks ago I had a serious hankering for some Korean BBQ. Jake and I talked about going someplace new but I’d been stuck on the idea of revisiting Jeong Won. Jeong Won is a little different from the other all-you-can-eat places since it’s a buffet. The buffet style allows you to choose exactly what you want to get. One just one piece of chicken to try it out? You can do that here! And I appreciate that flexibility …

Taste n’ Tinis in Hillcrest on December 10th, 2015
December 8th, 2015etc, Hillcrest, Mary, San Diego Countymary 2 Comments

December is upon us and the holiday season is in full swing! I have the majority of my Christmas shopping done but if you’re like me, you’re starting to slack jusssssst a little bit. The idea of going to another store and standing in more lines seems tiring and you just want to give up and order EVERYTHING on Amazon (Am I projecting a little? Oops). Don’t give up just yet!! There’s a fun holiday event happening THIS Thursday in …

d bar… for the last time
December 7th, 2015Hillcrest, Mary, San Diego Countymary 4 Comments

I’ve been to D Bar in Hillcrest many, many times. One of the first times we went was during our Bacon Crawl back in 2013. I’ve also gone for a few birthdays and just as a treat and I was very sad to learn that D Bar will be closing up shop on December 20th. Excuse me while I weep over a bowl of crue fries!
Jake, T and I went last night for one of our last dinners at D …
