November 2nd, 2015 cake decorating, Mary mary 10 Comments

Another year, another birthday! Here’s a little recap of my birthday party this year which was a Back to the Future party. My party was on October 24th just a few days after the 30th anniversary (October 21st, 2015) and it seemed too good to pass it up as a theme. Here are some of the highlights of my decorations and food at the Back to the Future party:

I made this “fire tire” trail out of construction paper (which I cut …

September 30th, 2015 Mary, Mira Mesa, San Diego County mary 6 Comments

Mira Mesa got a new restaurant last month! It’s over in the shopping center with the Fresh & Easy and the food court. It replaces the vacant bagel shop that shuttered earlier this year. The new place? Urbane Cafe.

Urbane Cafe is a chain restaurant that started out in Ventura, CA and has expanded to more cities in California. There’s another location for Urbane Cafe in San Diego over in Linda Vista, just down the road from USD.

Urbane Cafe is a fast …

desserts at deli sushi and desserts
July 13th, 2015 Mary, Miramar, San Diego County mary 4 Comments

I’ve been to Deli Sushi and Desserts quite a few times now, usually for lunch breaks. I’ve gone enough times now that they know what I want to order (since I usually get the same thing – how boring of me). Not too long ago I finally tried out some of their desserts! It’s about time, really. When did I become a dessert slacker?!

macarons at blush desserts

Last week I was out and about in the Convoy area and I decided to pop in to see what kind of treats they had over at Blush Desserts. Initally I just wandered in just for a look-see. I didn’t promise myself I would actually buy anything and my intentions were to only buy a strawberry cheesecake macaron if they had them. And if not, then nothing.
That obviously did not pan out the way I thought it would. I peeked on the macaron …

trader joe’s spring edition finds
April 10th, 2015 Mary, products mary 6 Comments

Time for more Trader Joe’s finds! I’ll call it the “Spring Edition”. These items are mostly new to me, not necessarily new for spring. But it is spring now, so Spring Edition it is!

CC of Pink Candles at Ridgemont High alerted me to the fact that Danish Kringles were back at Trader Joe’s. I was totally bummed I missed out on them last year (around Christmas they had almond kringles and there were pumpkin kringles in the Fall). I was excited to try the …

[product review] green pea cookie
February 26th, 2015 Mary, products mary 8 Comments

I’m a regular supporter or various things on Kickstarter and I get their emails talking about what projects the staff had backed recently or popular projects. I spied a little Kickstarter link to something called Green Pea Cookie and was instantly curious. Cookies… made with green peas? Say whaaaaat? I’m not even a fan of regular peas by their lonesome self, but I do love me some pea soup so I figured it’d be worth it to back the project …

blush desserts / kearny mesa
February 6th, 2015 Kearny Mesa, Mary, San Diego County mary 2 Comments

During Chicken Wing Week last month we tried to go to Common Theory. On a Friday night. I guess I forgot we live in a big metropolitan city because the wait time was over 45 minutes and I wasn’t willing to wait. Instead I dragged Jake and T over to Blush Desserts for a few desserts (for later, of course – we ended up just going to In-N-Out for dinner – mustard grilled burgers, awwww yeah). I’ve popped in here a few times but haven’t really taken photos or anything since I’m just now getting around to posting about it! Blush Desserts has tons of pretty macarons to choose from, plus cupcakes, cakes, bars, macaron ice cream sandwiches as well as coffees and teas.
