taste of downtown 2013 event recap
October 14th, 2013Downtown, Mary, San Diego Countymary 8 Comments

I was invited to attend the Taste of Downtown by McFarlane Promos and I happily accepted. I meant to go the last two years (!!) but something came up both times and I wasn’t able to make it. Stacey was my cohort for the evening and we planned on tackling this event the simple way: just go down 5th and swing around to 6th until we hit 14 spots.
Why 14? Stacey insisted we should do one more than the last …

Cake decorating post alert!
Alert! Alert!
I don’t know why I felt the need to give you so many alerts. But hey, there’s some geeky video gaming cake decorating going on over here today and I hope you’ve prepared for it.
S requested a Minecraft birthday cake because apparently he thinks it’s the bee’s knees. I didn’t even try Minecraft until the day after I made this cake so this is like an interpretive cake. I knew it was pixel-y and block-y and …

best cheap eats in san diego, ca

This post is written as a part of ShopMoxie’s Best of the US Series!
San Diego is filled to the brim with fancy places here and there. As a local, you’ll rarely find me eating out Downtown or in the touristy parts of San Diego (I’m looking at you, Old Town). Instead, I like checking out the little hole in the walls for some really awesomely good and awesomely cheap eats.

pear picking in julian at o’dell’s organic orchard (because apple picking is too mainstream)
October 9th, 2013Julian, Mary, San Diego Countymary 4 Comments

A little scenic drive up into the mountains was what awaited us one recent Saturday…

I always love the windy roads with trees covering both sides of the road.

Maya was even part of the crew that day!

Eventually we made our way to our destination: O’Dell’s Organic Orchard! To get to O’Dell’s you have to pass through a packed road filled with people visiting a winery and an apple orchard. If you drive a bit down the road, the crowds thin out …

social life pizza / college – san diego, ca

A couple of weeks ago, I got a PR release about a new pizza spot opening up in the College area, right around the corner from where Jake lives. (Note: I did *not* get invited here, that’s just how I found out about this place!) They had just opened and we serving up Neapolitan style pizzas – something I’ve always wanted to try – so we scooted on over there to check it out. 
The place was not very busy for …

[product review & recipe] organic peanut butter brookies
October 3rd, 2013Mary, products, Recipesmary 10 Comments

A few weeks ago I got an email from Stef of Canarsie Cookies asking if she could send me some of her “brookies”. What the heck is a brookie?! It’s like a brownie and a cookie got drunk one night and had a love child that emerged and they named their baby a “brookie”. Ahh, sweet, sweet drunken love.
The Brookie:

Stef sent me some brookies to try. It’s a fusion of peanut butter and chocolate that kind of turned into a …

Reminder: Don’t forgot to enter to win a $100 gift card to Islands Restaurants!
I was recently invited to check out Cafe Japengo, a sushi/Japanese restaurant in La Jolla. They were bringing back bento boxes to their menu and I came in to check those out with my co-worker Lauren in tow. Sadly she’s now my ex co-worker since she left the whole state! This was one of our last lunches together, sniff sniff!

I decided to get a pomegranate green iced …
