New Restaurant Collections on Foodie

New Restaurant Collections on Foodie Do you use Foodie? It’s a great site for browsing recipes. You can create lists/collections where you add ones you like or want to make, etc. Foodie recently launched a restaurant section with the same idea. I was asked to create some collection lists based on San Diego restaurants. I […]

Cronuts and more from Peterson’s Donut Corner

Cronuts and more from Peterson’s Donut Corner

Cronuts and more from Peterson’s Donut Corner I’ve heard a lot of good things about Peterson’s Donut Corner, including their super sized donuts, plentiful selection, and most recently: their addition of cronuts. So this weekend, Mr. K and I finally made the trip over to Escondido to try out the donuts. The donut store is […]

Trader Joe’s December Edition

Trader Joe’s December Edition

Trader Joe’s December Edition I popped into my local Trader Joe’s the same day I got the Fearless Flyer. Unfortunately, I was a little too quick, as my store wasn’t even stocked with half of the featured products. But after two more trips, I finally got most of the items I had wanted to try. […]

Savory Buffet

Savory Buffet

Savory Buffet   Mr. K and I haven’t really had the desire to eat Chinese buffets in a long time, with the exception of Tomi Buffet in San Jose which has surprisingly high quality sushi. But for some reason, I’ve had this desire to revisit Savory Buffet lately. It’s been years since I’ve been, but […]

Salju Dessert

Salju Dessert

Salju Dessert On a recent trip to LA, my brother requested snow ice for dessert. He was visiting from the Bay Area, which surprisingly hasn’t developed as many snow ice places. Of course I’m always game for snow ice. We were hoping to visit the new branch of Blockheads Shavery, my second favorite snow ice […]

belVita Breakfast Biscuits

belVita Breakfast Biscuits

belVita Breakfast Biscuits Breakfast in a cookie form? Yes please! Recently I was given some samples of belVita Breakfast Biscuits to try. What immediately appealed to me was the form. Crunchy Biscuit cookies. So far all the on-the-go breakfast choices I’ve seen come in some sort of bar form. I’m not much of a fan […]
