the tasty things in life: blueberry muffins from souplanation

I’m going to start doing “short posts” on Wednesdays featuring things that I love!
The Tasty Things In Life
Here’s my first post: the blueberry muffins from Souplantation!

I don’t know what it is about these little gems, but I can never get enough of them whenever we go to Souplantation. They are my favorite item there! They’re always warm and fresh with just the right amount of sweetness and lots of blueberries with each and every bite. And, they aren’t complete without …

lucky’s breakfast / north park | san diego, ca

I’ve read about Lucky’s Breakfast in various places (like Dennis’s blog A Radiused Corner) and had been wanting to stop by and check it out for quite awhile. It’s closed on Sundays and is only open from 7am-12pm the rest of the week, so we had to plan it out to get here early enough to enjoy breakfast here. One Saturday morning Jake and I were finally able to make it with the kids in tow.

Check out the prices on …

The bake sale was great fun today! Not only that, but we raised $1750 for the Share Our Strength charity today – wow! It was great to meet other bloggers (who knew there was so many in San Diego) and to buy a bunch of wonderful homemade treats to enjoy throughout the weekend. Here’s a few photos I snapped at the event today!

Just a few of the cupcakes from some of the bloggers.

baking for a cause
May 12th, 2011etc, Marymary 7 Comments

I finished up my goodies tonight for the Food Blogger Bake Sale (which, in case you forgot, is this Saturday)! Oy, my back hurts a little.

I unwrapped many mini reese’s to be stuffed inside of peanut butter cookies. This dough is killer. I used Smitten Kitchen’s Peanut Butter Cookies recipe this time around… though, minus the chocolate chips.
I really wanted to do a low-sugar version of this cookie, but it didn’t quite work out that way. I think that will …

cupcakes at elizabethan desserts / encintas | san diego, ca

It’s been a crazy week here in Mary-land, so here’s a sweet and short post on something I truly love: cupcakes!
I have been wanting to go to Elizabethan Desserts for a very long time. I just never have the will to go north to Encintas but I’m sure glad I finally did! Not only are the cupcakes super cute but I found most of them to be really delicious. Score! All of the cupcakes below were $3.25 each. They also …

feliz cinco de mayo!
May 5th, 2011etc, Marymary 1 Comments

I don’t really celebrate Cinco de Mayo, but it always seems like a big deal around here. Or at least, to the local restaurants. In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I present to you a delicious looking collage of a typical Mexican food you will get at most (if not all) sit down Mexican restaurants. Happy Cinco de Mayo! Don’t get too drunk now, kids.

By request, here’s a list of where all of these chips are from.

maria maria / mission valley | san diego, ca

Since it’s unlikely you’ll want to spend your Cinco de Mayo going to a crappy Mexican restaurant, I’ll do another post about a place that has good food. Deal? Deal!
For this visit we used a coupon for Maria, Maria, a chain of Mexican restaurants inspired by the music of Carlos Santana. On the walls they have various artwork from artists who have all worked with Santana in the past as a reflection of the restaurant and his music. And of …
