circa 59 at the riviera palm springs / palm springs, ca

Palm Springs is a place that I visited briefly once many moons ago when I used to be friends with a guy named Bill. Bill was a punk rock loving banker who didn’t like his job and he was an incredibly full of life person. The only reason I ever visited Palm Springs before was because Bill wanted to show Alyssa and I around the town even though we had just spent a few hours stuck in traffic on the …

e & drink / kearny mesa – san diego, ca

Before it got stupid hot and was just on the warm side, my co-workers and I went to E & Drink to get some hot pot. Individual sized mini hot pots, which now that I’ve had it, I don’t really think it was that “mini”. Then again, I also can never finish one bowl of Pho, so maybe I’m biased in my thinking.

[product review] kernel season’s popcorn seasonings
July 3rd, 2013Mary, productsmary 3 Comments

Popcorn is definitely one those simple treats that love. It’s crunchy. It’s salty. It’s (relatively) light. You can make it sweet! It’s versatile and super easy to customize and make it your own. When Kernel Season’s offered to send me some samples of their popcorn seasonings, I was definitely on board and couldn’t wait to try them out.

I picked three flavors from their lineup: BBQ, Milk Chocolate Caramel, and Sour Cream & Onion.

They also sent me samples of their popcorn …

lil’ piggy’s bar-b-q / coronado – san diego, ca

Our visit to Coronado was an unplanned visit. We had originally tried to go to El Indio for some Mexican food and then ended up over at Ferry Landing in Coronado to try BBQ instead. I mean, really, why not? It was a nice day out when we pulled up to Lil’ Piggy’s Bar-B-Q.

When you walk in, there’s a counter with a register and a menu overhead, so we assumed it was a order up front place like all of …

Warning: many, many photos ahead! Many including the holy grail of foods: BACON.
You’ve been warned.

Here’s a non-food photo to warm you up to the onslaught.
Jake and I got to the fair in the mid-afternoon, a little while before the Bacon Fest started. I had skipped lunch and was seriously thinking about getting something else from the fair to tide me over until the fest started. Luckily, I wisely decided to just wait. So… no fair foods this year!

We waited with …

Taco Tuesdays are a huge thing here in San Diego. It usually means a special deal on mini tacos at various taco shops and bars around town.

The tacos here  are all made with different Ballast Point beers, putting a unique twist on the typical taco.

Root Cellar Catering Co. is a husband and wife team (Jamie and Marie) who have put …
