breakfast at wich addiction / mira mesa – san diego, ca
April 7th, 2014Mary, Mira Mesa, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 6 Comments

Usually I get to work too early to try and come to Wich Addiction for breakfast, but I had the chance to stop in for a bite to eat last week. I’ve tried plenty of other items on the Wich Addiction menu so I was looking forward to finally trying one of their breakfast items.

I decided to just with the simplest, cheapest option on their breakfast menu: “Just an Egg-Wich” for $3.95. I thought maybe it would just be the …

fluffy homemade pancakes & candied bacon
March 12th, 2014Mary, RecipesMary Desjean 6 Comments

I discovered how to make my own from-scratch fluffy homemade pancakes in the last year or so. I used to always make them from a box mix until it dawned on me one day that I could do it from scratch, and ever since that mind blowing revelation I’ve shunned boxed pancake mix. It’s so easy to make pancakes from scratch and they taste about a thousand times better, too.
One Sunday morning I decided to get all fancy up in …

country waffles / clairemont – san diego, ca

Last Saturday when it was all crazy rainy and stuff, I had to take my car in for service for it’s very first (and hopefully only) recall. It was going to take hours and they wouldn’t give me a rental, so I had to blow off most of my Saturday for that. Luckily Jake was willing to come and pick me up and entertain me while my Shiny (yes, that’s what I call it – Firefly thing) was getting looked …

I have one more Restaurant Week thing to post about, but it’s late night on Sunday and it’s too many photos so I don’t wanna. Not yet anyway. Look for that one later this week.
Instead, I’m going to share a little place I discovered for breakfast this weekend. I was heading up to Encinitas to purchase some cupcakes for a Red Velvet Cupcake tasting I organized this weekend (also coming very soon in a post near you) and I had …

[recipe] browned butter banana pecan bread
January 29th, 2014Mary, RecipesMary Desjean 6 Comments

I’ve made a lot of banana bread in my life but this one might be my new favorite.

It’s extra moist. It’s got tons of pecans in it. Plus… it has browned butter! Funny thing about the browned butter… I kind of did it by accident. I left my butter unattended on the stove while I was measuring ingridents and the butter had started to brown a little… so I figured I’d just do it all the way.
I needed the butter …

harry’s coffee shop / la jolla, ca
January 13th, 2014David, La Jolla, San Diego CountyDavid 5 Comments

Nestled in downtown La Jolla, Harry’s Coffee Shop is an established landmark that’s been serving up breakfast and lunch since 1960.  Now run by the family’s second generation, the restaurant is a throwback to traditional east coast diners with a long counter, vinyl booths, Norman Rockwell prints and vintage sports memorabilia lining the walls.  It’s warm, comfortable and familiar.

tip top meats / carlsbad – san diego, ca
December 31st, 2013Carlsbad, Cheap Eats, Mary, San Diego CountyMary Desjean 8 Comments

Other bloggers are doing like “Best of 2013!” posts, but not me. We are just chugging right along with more reviews here like a whole new year isn’t happening tomorrow.
If I were to do one of those Best of! posts, this breakfast might actually make the list. So we’re ending the year on a high note, at least! Stacey alerted me to this most awesome of breakfast specials over at Tip Top Meats in Carlsbad, CA. I used to be …

lumberjack cafe / big bear lake, ca

Back to Big Bear posts!

The next day when we woke up after arriving in Big Bear, there was a nice dusting of snow everywhere. 

My shiny car got it’s first layer of snow as well! After a little breakfast, we headed out to explore a bit of the area.

There was lots of pretty scenery and lovely trees everywhere. We tried to visit the Discovery Center and the Park Ranger station but they were both closed that day. We ended up just …

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.
