yuma part two: a date shake and the bridge to nowhere
March 6th, 2015 AZ, Mary, Road Trips mary 4 Comments

After visiting the tiny church in Yuma, we went back on the road and headed back towards the freeway. We didn’t get very far before we made another stop. While driving to the tiny church, Jake noticed a large bridge that looked familiar to us and he noticed a sign for date shakes. Date shakes aren’t easy to come by in San Diego and are one of my very favorite things, so we stopped to check out From the Farm.

We …

pinkberry / new flavors + 10 cent frozen yogurt

Pinkberry is really more of a big deal to our northern neighbors but we’ve managed to hang onto two locations down here in San Diego. Pinkberry is celebrating it’s 10 year anniversary this year with a fancy, new, cheap special that I’m sure will get you in a tizzy. That is, if you love tasty frozen treats, which you should.

On Friday, January 30th (aka TOMORROW) you’ll be able to score $.10 cent Pinkberry! You’ll get a small cup with your …

portland, oregon – day three recap
January 23rd, 2015 Mary, Portland / Oregon, Road Trips mary 6 Comments

Welcome to Portland again, dear friends, as we explore and recap the third day of our trip. It’s a bit of doozy with the photos!
1) Stepping Stone Cafe

I will admit that the Stepping Stone Cafe did not initially make my itinerary. Jake and I watched an old episode of Man v. Food before our trip and Jake really wanted to go here. So I fit it in. Aren’t I a nice girlfriend? (Just nod and say yes.)

This is part of …

By the time this post is up, I’ll be in PORTLAND eating whatever it is Portlanders eat. So, here’s a semi lazy post about some recent food finds.

For my birthday, Alyssa got me this box of Sugarfina Caramels. I loved, loved, loved the box plus the goodies instead of it! It was a taster box and had a bunch of fun caramel flavors! The flavors were Dark Chocolate Seat Salt, English Toffee, Fuji Apple, Matcha Green Tea, Mint Chip, Pumpkin …

carson kitchen / las vegas
December 9th, 2014 Las Vegas, Mary, Road Trips mary 4 Comments

During Food Fight Write, we got standard convention breakfast (re: trays of mostly warm eggs, bacon, and such, though one day there was also a Bloody Mary Bar…) and our lunches fared much better (BBQ!). Usually we were on our own for dinner and one evening I ventured out to Carson Kitchen with a couple of other bloggers. I had heard people talking about Carson Kitchen and got recommendations for it from other bloggers so I figured it be a …

south bay food crawl

Very recently Jake, T and I went on a South Bay Food Crawl hosted by CC of Pink Candles at Ridgemont High. Jinxi of Jinxi Eats + S joined us on the crawl as well. We explored a few spots in the South Bay and had a great time trying out some new foods!
Stop #1: Birria de Res

Our first stop was at a place down near Imperial Beach called Fernandez Restaurant and Catering. The restaurant looks like it’s on the bottom floor …

rita’s italian ice – mira mesa

Rita’s Italian Ice is slowly infiltrating all of San Diego by popping up new locations all over the place! The Rita’s in Mira Mesa opened about two weeks ago and I decided to stop by for a little quickie visit last week.

This location is in the inner part of Mira Mesa off of Camino Ruiz, near Capricorn Way. There’s a new(ish) California Donuts shop nearby, a Filipino restaurant, Little Caesar’s, Azteca Mexican (a market) and Ariana Produce (another market). Ariana …
