guiltea cravings | clairemont

Last weekend Jake, T, and I had dinner at Lolita’s. But I’m not here today to talk about that – surely you know all about Lolita’s! No, no, no. I’m here to talk about some dessert I had at a new spot called GuilTea Cravings. Specifically macarons. Delicious little macarons.

GuilTea Cravings is located right next to the 805 off Clairemont Mesa Blvd. It’s next to a place called Twisted Sushi and Sipz Fusion Cafe. We hit up Comickaze first and …

wong’s golden palace | la mesa

Jake and I had our 9 year anniversary recently (yes… 9!!) and for our anniversary Jake wanted to pick the restaurant. That’s how we ended up at Wong’s Golden Palace in La Mesa. I have a vague memory of going here when I was kid. Jake and I have passed the place a ton of times with it’s kind of retro fake “palace” exterior. It was high time to try it as an adult.

The entrance to the restaurant is actually …

modoo donuts | buena park
April 18th, 2016 Buena Park, Mary, Orange County Mary 6 Comments

After Korean BBQ at Mr BBQ, we hit up a nearby shop called My D-Pins and Collectibles to check out some Funko Pops. This shop had TONS of Disney pins. I didn’t even know Disney pins was a THING. Shows you how much I know. After collectible browsing, I wanted to hit up a nearby donut shop before we headed home. Modoo Donuts held the promise of cute donuts and I couldn’t resist popping up for a few donuts. 

Modoo Donuts. …

hiking at palomar mountain + the buffet at harrah’s rincon casino

During our mini staycation, we took off to Palomar Mountain for a fun (and tiring) nature hike. I wanted to revisit the Palomar Mountain School where I (and T) went for sixth grade camp. We also went to The Buffet at Harrah’s Rincon Casino for lunch! More on the buffet later. First up… breakfast!
Breakfast at Starbucks
If it’s after 6AM, there are only 2 options for breakfast at Harrah’s. If it’s before 6AM then Pink’s will be in the mix for …

pipirins | gaslamp quarter

Last weekend I was invited to try out a new restaurant that has popped up in the Gaslamp Quarter. It’s a cute little shop in the heart of Downtown called Pipirins. When Jake first heard the name of it, he thought it would be an Italian restaurant but actually it’s a Guadalajara style restaurant! 

Pipirins is only a couple of blocks away from Horton Plaza, right on Broadway.

They have lunch special portions which are a little smaller in size (4 oz …

the milk bar | north park

Last weekend after we ate some burgers, I made Jake drive by a new spot so I could try out some cookies and crazy flavored milks. The spot? The Milk Bar. The Milk Bar is located adjacent to Streetcar Merchants in North Park. The space is actually open so you can walk right into Streetcar from Milk Bar and vice versa. 

It’s a pretty simple little setup inside. There’s a counter that displays the sweet treats being offered that day. They …

[review] hidden garden cookies
March 7th, 2016 Mary, products Mary 2 Comments

I was recently asked if I wanted to review some new cookies. These are “sneaky” veggie cookies called Hidden Garden Cookies. Each cookie has different vegetables “hidden” inside of them so you are eating something healthier while also eating cookies! They are also gluten free! I agreed to try the product out and they sent me a few complimentary bags of cookies to try. I brought them into the office so my co-workers could also give a little bit of …
