hob nob hill / banker’s hill – san diego, ca

Hob Nob Hill is one of those restaurants that have been around for a long, long time – since 1944 to be exact! The interior of Hob Nob Hill has a kind of traditional luxurious feel to it – chandeliers adorn the ceiling along with fine looking upholstered chairs. It’s the kind of place that feels like it’s been around for awhile – a place with a little touch of class.
Jake and I visited for dinner one Sunday evening, not …

tasty things in life: tastykakes

My college roommate introduced me to Tastykakes. She was from outside of Philadelphia and she would bring them back from vacations or her mom would send her care packages with these little goodies tucked inside.
Getting letters or mail of any kind was incredibly exciting back in college, but care packages were something special. And these Peanut Butter Kandy Kakes were my favorite (with the Butterscotch Krimpets in a close 2nd place).

I didn’t think I’d ever have these little gems again …

tasty things in life: dulce de leche cheesecake

Quite frankly I’m surprised that not every Wednesday posting is a dessert. Astounded, really, since I have such a major sweet tooth.

The Dulce de Leche Cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory is one of my favorites and deserves a place amongst the tasty things in life. I like that it’s smooth, creamy, and rich with a lovely caramel flavor. It isn’t overpowering and there isn’t a bunch of crazy stuff in it like some their other crazy cheesecakes. It’s got a …

July 25th, 2011Mary, San Diego Countymary 1 Comments

I was approached by a representative from Expressly Gourmet to see if I was interested in trying out their take out services. I received a credit towards the purchase of food to try out their services. Below is my review!
Expressly Gourmet is a unique take-out service. They offer meals from a large variety of restaurants in San Diego, allowing you to get delicious foods delivered directly to your home or office without you stepping foot outside! I first tried to …

homemade mexican / el comal – north park / san diego, ca

El Comal is located in North Park, but just off the main drag of University Ave. It’s tucked away on a little side street and the inside of the place looks like it used to be someone’s house that was redone to be a little restaurant. The dining area looks like the living room/dining room with no walls in between. I can be honest and say I wasn’t expecting much of this place. But after dining here, Jake and I …

BBQ Crawling with San Diego bloggers was sure to yield a good time.
Who was in the crawl? Carol of CAB Cooks (fab organizer), CC from Pink Candles of Ridgemont High, Dennis from A Radiused Corner,  Marie (and D.) from Meandering Eats, Leanne (and T.) from Three Dog Kitchen, Kirbie (and FH) from Kirbie’s Cravings and Jake (and I).
In order to not be a broken record, my post will be hopefully short.
