supernatural sandwiches / miramar – san diego, ca

A few months ago, my co-worker cohorts and I tried to come to this plaza off Miramar Rd. for lunch to visit a place called Dave’s Cafe. But it had been closed down and a new spot was revamping it for an eventual move into the spot. Fast forward a few month’s and the place has finally opened and we went last week to check it out. The place? Supernatural Sandwiches.

I think they’re still working on their signage since the …

[recipe] strawberry lime cheesecake bars
April 4th, 2014Mary, Recipesmary 8 Comments

With the rest of that 2lbs. box of strawberries I decided to make dessert this weekend – Strawberry Lime Cheesecake Bars.

The original recipe I based this on called for lemon – but I wanted to use limes from our tree since we had those in abundance. I’m also trying out various key lime recipes to see what’s the best before our trip to Tampa/Key West this month (woo).

First thing I did was to make the strawberry compote for the middle …

hilda’s bakery panaderia / city heights – san diego, ca

After we dropped off the kiddos, Jake and I went on a few errands. We had been talking about making tacos for dinner and wanted to check out this place in City Heights that made fresh tortillas.When we got there though, the place was closed. Sad faces, man! They closed at 2PM but there was a sign on the door in Spanish and pointed next door. My Spanish is not that good and I vaguely understood that tortillas were sold …

the cravory cookies / point loma – san diego, ca

A couple of weeks ago, after we got one of those burgers we had during Burger Week, Jake, S and I went over to Sunset Cliffs for a spell.

It’s so gorgeous and pretty here, even though the cliffs freak me out.
I say that I have a fear of heights, but really, I think I have a fear of falling. Falling off of things, especially high things. I won’t even go up a ladder since I’m totally afraid of falling off …

firehouse subs revisit + giveaway!

Recently I was invited to come back into Firehouse Subs for a special dinner with the co-founder, Robin Sorensen, who entertained a group of us with stories, jokes, and more importantly some food! Firehouse Subs has more recently started expanding out here in the West with over 700+ locations under their belt, so it was fun to hear hear a few tales about how the business started. It was also great to speak with and hear from one of the …

[recipe/review] peanut butter chocolate chip cookies
March 3rd, 2014Mary, products, Recipesmary 4 Comments

Peanut butter is probably one of my most favorite things in life. Peanut butter + chocolate is one of those killer combinations that is so very hard to resist as well. If you want me to be in your favor, give me peanut butter and I’ll be in your corner. Enter a new, local product that’s hit the shelves around town recently called Pacific Beach Peanut Butter.

The peanut butter spread (which is a “spread” because “peanut butter” must contain 90% …

valentine’s recap
February 21st, 2014etc, Marymary 4 Comments

Before I forget… let me reveal the final cookies that I gave to Jake on Valentine’s Day!

Yoda cookies!

 
Which naturally go with Jake’s Valentine’s Day card that I got for him off of Etsy. It was a “print it yo-self” card and that’s when I discovered my printer ran out of color ink. I ended up filling it in with colored pencils and adding some “3-D” punched out hearts to the card.
I got the Star Wars Heros & Villians cookie cutters …

desserts at hanna’s gourmet / normal heights – san diego, ca

After our blogger lunch at Que Huong, we all had dessert at a second spot – Hanna’s Gourmet off Adams Ave. in Normal Heights. I had read about this place a few times and I had been wanting to stop by to try some carrot cake pancakes I spied on the menu. But, we were only here for dessert that day and we shared 5 desserts between the seven on us so we all got to have a little tastes …

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.
