bite of boston / san diego, ca

My dad is originally from Massachusetts. In our immediate family, my dad was pretty much the only one to leave and I’m the only Californian in our family. I attended Boston University for my college years and even though I was too poor in college to really enjoy the fruitful Bostonian restaurant scene, I did later develop a love for Boston related foods, such as clam chowda, fried whole belly clams and lobster rolls. Bite of Boston helps to relive …

charley’s famous hamburgers / lemon grove – san diego, ca

A few weeks ago Jake and I were out and about and planning on grabbing some lunch. We had decided to go to Fred’s in El Cajon since we felt it needed one last shot before we took it off our rotation. The last few times we had visited, the food wasn’t as good. The fries and burgers were not the same – lack of taste and seasonings. You could tell the quality just wasn’t up to par and not …

[recipe + reivew] smoky bacon pasta w/ gustus vitae smoked sea salt
August 9th, 2013Mary, products, Recipesmary 2 Comments

Earlier this summer, I received a few of these Gustus Vitae Condiments on my doorstep to try:

I’ve used the “Taste of Cajun” blend a couple of times for things like steak rub, rib rubs and on top of pan fried pork chops. But… I didn’t take any photos of those adventures. I assure you it is a delicious blend of Cajun-like flavors without being hot. It’s flavor baby, not heat! You could make it all hot and steamy with some …

meatball cucina / downtown – san diego, ca

I was invited not too long ago to head Downtown to check out a new restaurant called Meatball Cucina. It’s not even in the Gaslamp Quarter, where every other restaurant in Downtown seems to be. It’s right across from American Plaza/Santa Fe Depot. Their website mentions free parking after 5PM in the parking garage right next door to the building, so that makes it much more convenient to get to than I originally score. Score for parking Downtown!

peterson’s donut corner / escondido, ca

I’ve had numerous people tell me about Peterson’s Donut Corner up in Escondido, CA. I knew they had giant donuts, they were really, good, and all that jazz. But Escondido was kinda far…
Around Christmas last year Jake and I made a special trip up to Escondido just to score some donuts. But that mission was a FAIL when we saw that they were closed for two weeks for a Christmas break. Just my luck, to try and visit a normally …

dos equis “most interesting dinner” recap
August 2nd, 2013etc, Marymary 2 Comments

A couple of weeks ago I had the great fortune to attend the Dos Equis “Most Interesting Dinner” with Craig Thornton of Wolvesmouth, which took place during Comic Con and was . I didn’t actually go to Comic Con, but Jake and I did wander around Downtown before the dinner and saw many interesting people and things. It’s amazing to me how every year Comic Con swoops in and changes the landscape of the Gaslamp Quarter and the Convention Center. …

bull’s smokin’ bbq / linda vista – san diego, ca

My co-worker David told me about this place – Bull’s Smokin BBQ – and how they give bones out to the doggies. Dog friendly places are not too hard to fish out here in San Diego where outdoor dining is quite abundant, but it’s nice to see another place that also caters to the puppies!

In case you weren’t sure, there’s a big old sign in the front that tells you without a doubt that this joint is dog friendly!

There’s a …

[product review] chai diaries organic masala chai tea
July 31st, 2013Mary, productsmary 2 Comments

I’ve been on some kind of crazy beverage kick because I’ve got another tea for trying and reviewing!
Though this time, I had to actually make the tea myself. I received Organic Masala Chai loose leaf tea from Chai Diaries. Usually when I have Chai it’s from a bag, or a Chai latte. I recently discovered Ice Chai Lattes (which seems like a MAJOR DUH on my part) so I decided to use this tea to make my own!

Chai Diaries has …
