sandwich party with oroweat bread
December 10th, 2014Mary, products, Recipesmary 2 Comments

Oroweat® approached me recently with an offer to try out their new organic bread and to host my own little sandwich making party. It was just after Thanksgiving when Jake, S, my dad and I got together in the kitchen to make a few panini’s for lunch using Thanksgiving leftovers. What else were we going to do with all of that leftover turkey?!

Oroweat has two new organic breads out: a 100% Whole Wheat bread along with a Grains and Seeds …

carson kitchen / las vegas

During Food Fight Write, we got standard convention breakfast (re: trays of mostly warm eggs, bacon, and such, though one day there was also a Bloody Mary Bar…) and our lunches fared much better (BBQ!). Usually we were on our own for dinner and one evening I ventured out to Carson Kitchen with a couple of other bloggers. I had heard people talking about Carson Kitchen and got recommendations for it from other bloggers so I figured it be a …

5 Minute Mug Cakes cookbook giveaway
December 8th, 2014Giveaways, Mary, Recipesmary 4 Comments

I’ve got another giveaway in store for you fine folks! Kirbie of Kirbie’s Cravings has graciously given me a copy of her new book, 5 Minutes Mug Cakes, to giveaway on the blog today! 5 Minute Mug Cakes is the perfect book for when you really crave a little something sweet but don’t want to either a) leave the house or b) bake a whole cake. Instead, in just a few minutes, you can mix a few ingredients into your favorite oversized mug, pop it into the microwave and PRESTO! Dessert. It’s a brilliant notion, really.

louisiana fried chicken and waffles

Okay, folks. Time for some eats from a part of town you probably don’t head to very often: Logan Heights! I had a coupon in the Entertainment 2015 book for a little spot called Louisiana Fried Chicken. I found out this place is part of a franchise of a larger fast food chain. Apparently Louisiana Fried Chicken is all over LA but I had never heard of it before. We have one lonely little location in San Diego right off National Ave and the 5. It’s right on the border into Logan Heights and quite close to the 32nd Street Naval Base.

le parfait paris
December 3rd, 2014Downtown, Mary, San Diego Countymary 8 Comments

I was recently invited to check out Le Parfait Paris, a recent addition to Downtown San Diego. This cafe is actually their second location, with their primary location in Mission Valley. They’ve got an awesome open air feel with this new spot. Tables are on the sidewalk for maximum people watching and to enjoy our usually beautiful weather. Very European!

Jake, T and I visited on a recent Saturday morning and managed to park right in front of the cafe! This …

pumpkin pudding pie with pecan crust + nestfresh giveaway
December 1st, 2014Mary, Recipesmary 5 Comments

I should have posted this before Thanksgiving, but apparently I’m bad at planning ahead for the blog since I made this pie the night before Thanksgiving. Oh well.
I wanted something that was kind of “pumpkin pie lite” and I also wanted a nutty element. But I didn’t want to be super crazy and do like a “combination” pie. Instead what I came up with is a pecan pie-like crust on the bottom with a pumpkin pudding on top. You get …

what i’m thankful for
November 27th, 2014etc, Marymary 8 Comments

It’s true. There is always something to be thankful for. And here are a few things that I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving.

My Parents
My parents were only able to have one kid (psst – that’s me) and though I had no choice in the matter, I’m thankful they had me and that they are my parents. They’ve raised me to do the right thing, to be honest and loyal and trustworthy. They’re always there for me no matter what and …

pizza rock / las vegas
November 26th, 2014Las Vegas, Mary, Road Tripsmary 2 Comments

Food Fight Write was an amazing conference and the first food blogger conference I ever attended. I drove into Vegas with my parents (who are retired and can pretty much go on a trip on a whim) so I wouldn’t have to do the drive alone.
