cream pan bakery & cafe / tustin, ca (and river tubing!)
July 22nd, 2013Mary, Orange County, TustinMary 10 Comments

I decided to do an easy post today because I am tired from Mother Nature beating me up this past Saturday. Story at the end of this post, if you are interested in the non-food side of things.
A couple weekends ago, Jake, T, my dad and I went up to Anaheim to catch an Angels vs. Red Sox game. It was my present to my dad for his birthday, since he’s a Red Sox fan and hardly ever gets to …

peking restaurant / westminster – orange county, ca

Last month Jake and I made the return trip up to LAX to pick up my folks who were away in the Philippines for six weeks. My “reward” for going north and sitting in traffic is finding a new spot to eat at and this time around I decided we had to have Chinese food. I had wanted to go to Peking Restaurant when we went up the first time but instead we ended up at Britt’s BBQ (no regrets!). …

royal india / del mar – san diego, ca

I haven’t had a heck of a lot of Indian food. The few items I’ve had, it wasn’t very good and avoided trying it again. I hesitated when I got an invitation to dine at Royal India but then I figured… why not? It won’t hurt me to try it again and since this was a nicer place, I was hoping none of my food would get burned (last time I tried Indian I got burned garlic nan bread… um, …

[recipe] no bake cookie bliss
July 15th, 2013Mary, RecipesMary 6 Comments

I don’t know about you, but when it’s all warm out I don’t feel like doing a whole lot. This includes baking. Turning on the oven sounds like such a horrid idea. It would just make it hotter, you know? Why would I want to deal with that?
But sometimes… I still want some cookies. And Oreo’s don’t always do it for me and my picky self.
I once tried to make some stove top no bake cookies and they turned out …

clementine gourment marketplace & cafe / palm desert, ca

 Jake and I stayed in Palm Springs only one night – so after a very peaceful and restful night at the Riviera, we got started early to try and beat the heat of the day. Originally we went over to a place called Cheeky’s in Downtown Palm Springs, but the prospect of waiting for an hour in the ever-increasing heat was a big turn off for me. We ditched those plans and made our way back down to Palm Desert. …

a quest for date shakes at shields date garden / indio, ca

The weekend before we went to Palm Springs, Jake and I went to the Bacon Fest at the fair. Normally when I go to the fair I have a whole list of things I want to get, one of them being a date shake. Well, if you remember that post then you’ll know I was not able to consume one other thing and was not able to get my date shake.
Then I remembered that dates totally grow in the desert! …

[hotel review] riviera palm springs / palm springs, ca

When Jake and I were discussing what route to take to Palm Springs, he was pretty adamant about not going over the mountain to get there. I didn’t know why exactly, I had a vague recollection of the drive and it didn’t seem so bad to me, but he really wanted to come in via the I-10.
It didn’t really work out that way though, of course. I saw there was traffic up the I-15 and we opted to take the …
