NY Giant Pizza / Mira Mesa | San Diego, CA
November 10th, 2010Mary, Mira Mesa, San Diego Countymary 4 Comments

NY Giant Pizza is a local chain in San Diego. There are a ton of various “NY Giant” pizza places all around town and it’s a bit hard to know the difference between all of them. The particular pizza place I went to only has 2 locations – one in Mira Mesa and one in Rancho Penasquitos. The one thing they do have in common with all of the “Giant” pizza places is their offering of the 28″ pizza which …

Julian Apple Pies – Julian Pie Co., Mom’s, and Apple Alley Bakery / Julian, CA – San Diego County
November 8th, 2010Julian, Mary, San Diego Countymary 2 Comments

About one of the only places near San Diego where you can experience “real weather” is by taking a little trip up into the mountains to visit Julian, CA. It’s our little mountainside retreat, best known for their Apple Pies in the fall when it’s Apple Picking Season. My friend, Laura and I took a little trip up to the mountain town on Halloween weekend for a little break from the city and to try out a few different pies …

Macy’s is doing another one of their chef cooking demos here in Southern California – this time featuring Chef Ming Tsai who’s currently in the running for the next Iron Chef. I’ve seen Chef Tsai’s cooking show on PBS and I’ve enjoyed watching it in the past. If I lived a little closer I would totally want to check it out! But maybe you live nearby or a bit closer – this is a great opportunity to see him work! …

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 …

Pecan Maple Bread, toasted, with a slather of Pumpkin Butter. It’s a good way to start anyone’s morning.

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, …

I made this for my work’s Halloween Party on Friday. I won 2nd place for the Halloween food contest. I won a frog slap bracelet. Oohhhh yeah.

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 …

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.
