IT IS SUMMER! Just in case you had no idea. Tourists visiting San Diego the last few days might have been thinking, “What in the world? Why is it cloudy?” but us year-rounders know all about the “June Gloom”. I’m just not used to this weird new addition of “June Humidity”. It feels like nature is confused and thinks we’re on the East Coast or something.
But I digress… it is summer! And that means it’s time to cook everything OUTSIDE just …

stuffed! food truck

Every day I check out the San Diego Food Trucks website and Twitter to see what food trucks might be near my office that day and recently Stuffed! was making a nearby curbside stop. Not all of the trucks come out this way to Sorrento Valley (the quieter side of Sorrento Valley – I don’t like going to the Qualcomm side, too busy!) so I felt it was my humble blogger duty to go and check them out.

draft republic

Draft Republic is a relatively new spot from the Cohn Restaurant Group that opened up in the La Jolla/UTC area.

Total score for San Diegans everywhere.
Here’s my recap of San Diego Burger Week. I didn’t visit quite …

a tale of two pans: cream pan and the apple pan

You know you’ve found the right partner in life when you’re sitting at home watching a travel food program, see a restaurant in Los Angeles that you want to try, and your partner says, “Let’s go next weekend!” even though he hates Los Angeles. Boys that are willing to do all of the driving and take you to LA just to try food are my kind of boys. ?
That’s how we found ourselves one recent Sunday morning – getting up …

We’ve finally gotten to our last day in Portland! And this post will be all food!
