san diego food bloggers bake sale recap
May 28th, 2014etc, Marymary 2 Comments

Not too long ago we had the 4th annual San Diego Food Bloggers Bake Sale! This year’s bake sale was organized by Susanne of Lil Ms. Sueshine. We branched off from the national bake sale this year and instead did our own thing and support a local cause – specifically we raised money to support the Food 4 Kids Backpack Program for the San Diego Food Bank. Our little group this year raised $540.45 for the Food Bank which is …

May 26th, 2014Florida, Mary, Road Tripsmary 12 Comments

Jake and I had a goal to try a bunch of different Key Lime desserts while we were in Florida (and Key West). We didn’t quite get to try as many as we wanted to but we still got a variety. Desserts are listed in the order that we ate them.

1) Yoder’s Key Lime Pie
Yoder’s Amish Village / Sarasota, FL / $4.50
I already talked about this over here on this post. Fluffy, light, creamy, almost like “Key Lime lite” but …

[recipe] one pot alfredo pasta

I wasn’t really feeling like doing a restaurant post today. My grandfather, who moved out here to live with us from Massachusetts just a month ago, has been in the hospital. He had gall bladder surgery but is now having a hard time recovering. Things haven’t been going so great the last couple of days so I haven’t felt like blogging too much.  I’m just going to do a “quickie” for a recipe I made for dinner. Inspired by seeing …

on eight years of blogging (happy happy blogiversary) + 100 things about mary
May 22nd, 2014etc, Marymary 28 Comments

Another year has come and gone… has it really been eight years since I started this thing? My very first post was nothing exciting and looking back at those photos I cringe at the lack of lighting and how I used my phone’s camera to take all of the photos. I can’t even remember what kind of phone I even had back then but it wasn’t fancy like the smart phones we have now. Crazy.
For my blogiversary post I thought …

national bbq month / whiskey bbq sauce recipe
May 21st, 2014Mary, products, Recipesmary 6 Comments

With Memorial Day coming up this the weekend and the unofficial start of summer on the way, it’s easy to see why May has been declared National BBQ Month. The longer days and warmer weather make it the perfect time to start bringing all of your cooking outdoors. Here in San Diego we’re lucky enough to be able to grill pretty much all year, but sure is a lot nicer to grill when it’s warm outside.

I was recently given some …

Souplantation Frankenstein Creations aka Design Your Own Delicious

I was recently invited to come back in to Souplantation during their new promotion called “Design Your Own Delicious“. It’s a contest using social media where you design something new using the food from Souplantation to create your own unique spin on a meal. I like to think of it as “Frankentstein Food Creations” but hey – call it whatever you want – you still win by eating tasty stuff at Souplantation and trying something a little new.
I explained the …

Ahh, we’re finally getting the to the Key West posts! It was a long eight hour drive down to Key West from Tampa. Sarasota was about an hour away so after blunch we still had about seven hours ahead of us. Hoo boy. I didn’t do any of the driving, I just sat in the back seat and chilled out reading my books.
 
We drove through lots of swampland, which you pretty much can’t see. There’s a lot of green, then …
