san diego burger week roundup

I read about San Diego CityBeat’s San Diego Burger Week on Janice’s blog, Food is My Favorite. I had never heard of burger week before! A bunch of restaurants around San Diego are offering up burgers for a mere $5. Every burger is a little bit different, with different toppings and various takes and there are even a few veggie burgers thrown in for the non-meat eating folks. Here’s my recap of the few places I tried during week – …

March 13th, 2014Mary, Poway, San Diego Countymary 10 Comments

Dad and I had dinner by our lonesome selves last week and he treated me to another dinner at the fabulous Takhrai Thai in Poway with one of his fancy groupon/coupon/discount deals. Also, Dad let me choose all of the items for our dinner that evening which made me incredibly happy. I took the opportunity to order a bunch of stuff we’d never tried before.

fluffy homemade pancakes & candied bacon
March 12th, 2014Mary, Recipesmary 6 Comments

I discovered how to make my own from-scratch fluffy homemade pancakes in the last year or so. I used to always make them from a box mix until it dawned on me one day that I could do it from scratch, and ever since that mind blowing revelation I’ve shunned boxed pancake mix. It’s so easy to make pancakes from scratch and they taste about a thousand times better, too.
One Sunday morning I decided to get all fancy up in …

tom’s chinese bbq + dim sum / city heights – san diego

Jake used to live in the heart of City Heights and used to work at the Albertson’s on University near I-15. We spotted this place some years ago (six to seven, almost the whole length of our relationship) just driving up and down that dreaded street: Tom’s BBQ. We could tell it was Chinese from the top sign we couldn’t read but we didn’t really know anything else about it. Whenever one of us would mention it, we’d shrug our …

peri peri / torrey highlands – san diego, ca

Here’s another post from my minion, David. You’ll see why I sent him in my stead.

Not being familiar with most South African food, I was rather excited when Mary asked me to attend a preview dinner at the new Peri-Peri restaurant in Torrey Highlands. Central to most of North County, it’s off the 56 freeway near the scenic entrance to the Del Mar Mesa Preserve where hoards of avid hikers and cyclists flock to get …

firehouse subs revisit + giveaway!

Recently I was invited to come back into Firehouse Subs for a special dinner with the co-founder, Robin Sorensen, who entertained a group of us with stories, jokes, and more importantly some food! Firehouse Subs has more recently started expanding out here in the West with over 700+ locations under their belt, so it was fun to hear hear a few tales about how the business started. It was also great to speak with and hear from one of the …

country waffles / clairemont – san diego, ca

Last Saturday when it was all crazy rainy and stuff, I had to take my car in for service for it’s very first (and hopefully only) recall. It was going to take hours and they wouldn’t give me a rental, so I had to blow off most of my Saturday for that. Luckily Jake was willing to come and pick me up and entertain me while my Shiny (yes, that’s what I call it – Firefly thing) was getting looked …

red lobster / mira mesa – san diego, ca

Time for some chain restaurant dining reviews! Woo! Last week my momma won big at the casino and took us all out to dinner to Red Lobster to celebrate. Since she was buying, she choose the restaurant. Big time rollers here, you know. Let’s see how Red Lobster is doing these days, shall we?

I’ve cloned these cheddar biscuits back in the day but the real thing is still mighty tasty with that hint of garlic, a little bit …

about this site

My name is Mary and I live in San Diego. I've been blogging since 2006 as a hobby - it's my fun, creative outlet! Some random things about me: I'm a front end web developer, I love peanut butter, cookies, warm cupcakes, puppy noses, star gazing, new bags of sugar, sprinkles, cupcake wrappers, egg rolls, eating french fries with ice cream, driving with the windows down, snuggling, wes anderson movies, staying up too late reading a good book and Jake. These are my adventures in all things food. Hope you enjoy the ride.
