mj’s yogurt time & deli / chula vista, ca
September 16th, 2013Chula Vista, Mary, San Diego Countymary 10 Comments

The best thing about read food blogs and having blogger friends is finding out about neat places that you would otherwise never ever know about, or would probably never try out. I had seen a post on CC’s blog Pink Candles at Ridgemont High about MJ’s Yogurt Time and Deli. Specifically, I saw this magical thing called “longanisa fries” I knew it was something I had to try! She was nice enough to send me some coupons as well – …

I hope everyone had a pleasant enough weekend. Mine was filled with red gerbera daisies, carnitas tacos, the Spring Valley swap meet and Lego Lord of the Rings! Now that the weekend is looking at me in the rear view mirror (I miss you already, weekend), I can get down and do this!
I used random.org to draw the winner for the Milton’s Crackers prize pack. Out of 13 entries, the winning comment was #9 – Morgan Work!
Congrats to Morgan and …

September 13th, 2013Downtown, Mary, San Diego Countymary 4 Comments

San Diego Restaurant Week is back again starting September 15th and I was lucky enough to get invited to Jsix for a little restaurant week preview.

Jsix is situated in Downtown San Diego just a couple of blocks from Petco Park. It is adjacent to Hotel Solamar and provides a fun and inviting dining experience. I loved the inside of the restaurant with the sprawl of flowers on the ceiling as well as the hanging lanterns. Jsix has a very inviting …

restaurante el salvadoreno / grant hill – san diego, ca

When I think of El Salvador now, I totally think of pupusas. Not that I really think about El Salvador all that much but now I can’t disassociate the two, but that’s okay because pupusas are DELICIOUS. More on those later. Let’s get on with the review!
Jake and I recently visited the other El Salvadorean restaurant in San Diego, appropriately called Restaurante El Salvadoreno.

[ensalada / 16oz for $2 or 32oz for $4]
I started off with an Ensalada drink. Whenever I …

t’s pistachio cake
September 9th, 2013cake decorating, Mary, Recipesmary 12 Comments

Jake’s oldest son, T, celebrated his 15th birthday in August! Goodness. Fifteen. Where has all the time gone?!
His birthday request? A pistachio cake. Apparently this idea sprung from these pistachio cookies I made 2 years for Christmas. I guess he’s been thinking about them ever since and has really wanted me to make something else with pistachios.
I’ve never made a pistachio cake before so I looked up a few recipes and did one the “easy” way (aka with boxed cake …

September 6th, 2013Mary, productsmary 14 Comments

Crackers! More specifically, these are Milton’s Crackers from the same folks who run Milton’s Deli in Del Mar. I’d already tried the savory crackers on my own so when I was offered the chance to try their new line of sweet crackers, I was pretty excited.

The new sweet line of crackers has five different flavors available for crunching and munching on. Let’s look at ‘em all, yes?

These are the Blueberry Multi-Grain crackers. You can see bits of the blueberry in …

urban bar & grill / downtown san diego
September 4th, 2013Downtown, Mary, San Diego Countymary 0 Comments

I was recently invited to check out Urban Bar & Grill in Downtown San Diego. They recently introduced a few new menu items as well as a new Bar Bites menu. Jake was my partner in crime once and again and we turned it into a little date night for the two of us!
We parked over at Horton Plaza since Urban Bar & Grill is just a block or two over in the Gaslamp. Even though Horton Plaza now only …

[recipe] puffy peanut butter & chocolate sugar cookies
September 2nd, 2013Mary, Recipesmary 6 Comments

There are some days when even if it’s stupid hot out… you just have to bake. Because inspiration has struck and you must act on it immediately! Mostly because you want to see if your idea is as good as it sounds in your head. That’s pretty much how these cookies came into being. I read Bakergirl’s latest post about Puffy Sprinkle Sugar Cookies and got inspired… to make the same thing… but with peanut butter and chocolate instead.

It’s not …
