the philly grill – north park / san diego, ca

Could this place be an acceptable substitute for my favorite Gagoline Brothers? You’ll just have to read on to find out!
I’m always on a quest to find good Philly Cheesesteaks. Gagoline Brothers has been my favorite place to get one for a long time and it’s hard to compete with that place.
I recently obtained a coupon to try out the Philly Grill, a little place in North Park. It’s not in the heart of North Park but rather a little …

lemon blueberry bread recipe (full of yum!)
February 3rd, 2012Mary, Recipesmary 6 Comments

One day I was at Ralph’s and I was in the mood to bake something.
A bread, since I’ve been obsessed with them lately.
I roamed the aisles, trying to find some inspiration.
On a whim, I went over to look at the fruit. Lo and behold, they had big baskets of fresh blueberries on sale for $1.99! Like, the BIG baskets! I got so excited I bought two baskets.
I froze one basket and the other I used to make some this AWESOME …

big kahuna’s / pacific beach – san diego, ca

One day I really wanted to go to Rocky’s Pub for hamburgers. Jake had never been and I wanted him to try it. Alas, we went on a football playoff day and the place was packed to the brim and we quickly gave up our quest. Which is what led us to try Big Kahuna’s in Pacific Beach instead. It’s right next door to Rocky’s and we were hungry. Outside the restaurant they have a little sign advertising that they …

takhrai thai / poway – san diego, ca
January 30th, 2012Mary, Poway, San Diego Countymary 5 Comments

My dad had a few coupons for this place in Poway called Takhrai Thai. He and my mom had gone a few times and had one coupon left. It was the last day to use it and he invited me along to share in the bounty of delicious food. We got there early to beat any crowds coming in to use their coupons on the last day, too. We actually got there a little too early – they close from …

bgr the burger joint / point loma – san diego, ca

BGR Burger Joint is a new burger place that just opened up in town a few weeks ago. It’s an east coast chain that’s making it’s debut on the west coast with their first location here in San Diego. I was invited to come in the restaurant and try out some of their burgers and get a feel for their restaurant.
One of the partners was there to greet us and talk to us about the restaurant. After a warm greeting …

chuao chocolates, valentine’s day, and you (+ a giveaway)

So there’s this thing coming up next month. Valentine’s Day. Sure you’ve heard of it.
I’m not gonna lie and be like, “Oh, I don’t care about it because it’s so commercialized. Why do you need just one to tell someone you love them? Shouldn’t you be telling them on a regular basis?”
Yeah, those are all true, but I still kinda want feel the special fuzzies on that day. And by special fuzzies, I just mean I want a little something, …

super easy peasy no knead bread
January 23rd, 2012Mary, Recipesmary 7 Comments

This is probably the easiest bread I’ve ever made. And I’ve never made bread before! I’m talking crusty, crunchy, yeasty, beautiful and delicious bread. Made from scratch, right in your own kitchen. Nothing fancy about it. No kneading, no starters, nothing. You just need to plan in advance, mix a few things together, and wait. Patience is a virtue, my friends, and your patience will be greatly rewarded.
I have been a kick for making quick breads lately, but I decided …
