bamboo hut – pacific grill and sushi bar / mira mesa | san diego, ca
November 5th, 2010Mary, Mira Mesa, San Diego Countymary 3 Comments

Update: This restaurant is now closed.
The Bamboo Hut is a little Asian restaurant in Mira Mesa that serves up sushi, plate lunches/bento boxes, and a mixture of Japanese/Hawaiian/Asian food. It’s a bit of a mish-mash – sort of an umbrella of a bunch of different Asian foods in one spot. I’ve seen this place for years – I live right in the area – but I had never visited until last week. I felt after my positive experience with Wings …

dudley’s bakery – pecan maple bread

My friend Laura and I went up into the mountains this past weekend for a little eating and pie tasting up in Julian, CA. We stopped at Dudley’s bakery in Santa Ysabel before going up the mountain. I got 5 (!) loaves of bread (if you buy 4 you get the 5th one for free). One of the loaves I got was this new flavor – Pecan Maple! I’m having dreams of delicious french toast and possibly some cinnamon toast, …

Birthday Food Roundup – The Free Goods
October 30th, 2010etc, Marymary 10 Comments

It seems to happen every year around this time. Birthdays. Everyone has one and how you celebrate – whether you ignore it or embrace it – is a matter of personal taste. Awhile ago I signed up for as many restaurant clubs as I could muster, to see what kind of goodies I could get in celebration of my birthday. It’s a fun way to celebrate for a longer period of time and to make yourself feel a little extra …

Additional Halloween Treats – AVE 5 Specials / Free Kids Stuff
October 29th, 2010etc, Marymary 4 Comments

Ahh, Halloween. I still remember the last time I went trick-or-treating. I was 14 and a freshman in high school. I thought I was pushing it a little back then still going trick-or-treating, but I figured I was short enough to pull it off anyway. I didn’t have any money to buy a costume, so I got creative and made my own. What did I go as? A deaf mute. Yes. I wore a sign that said “Trick or Treat!” …

Bronx Pizza / Hillcrest | San Diego, CA

I don’t remember where I first read about Bronx Pizza, but I’d been wanting to go there for awhile. Last Friday on what I’ve dubbed our “Pizza Nights” we headed over to Hillcrest to try out their thin crust, NY style pizza. I wanted to get a Whitestone Pizza ($15) – all cheese with garlic and no tomato sauce. Jake, who loves tomato sauce on pizza like no other (he usually orders pizza’s with extra sauce), wasn’t sure about the …

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.
