Daphne’s California Greek (Mira Mesa)

Daphne’s California Greek (Mira Mesa)

Daphne’s has been around a long time and it’s one of the only large chains that serves Greek food in San Diego. I don’t make it out to Daphne’s very often but do find it helps mix things up when I’m craving for something fast and a little different. They’ve gone through a few ownership hands(as recently as last year) but seem to be embracing their new “California Greek” name by offering menu items like the Cali-Greek Bowl and the Cali Pita.

We were invited to explore the menu and try these new items as well as their classic pita which is only $5 for a limited time.…

Tony Roma’s Gluten Free Ribs and Pulled Pork

Tony Roma’s Gluten Free Ribs and Pulled Pork

Tony Roma’s debuted its gluten free pulled pork and baby back ribs at Costco last month here in San Diego. We couldn’t make it out to Costco to meet their Pitmaster Jack Vogt, but they were kind enough to send us over a sample to try.

These packaged items already prepared for you can be hit or miss. What I love about Costco is that most of the ones I’ve tried are actually pretty good. Like others, these are super easy to prepare. If you know how to turn on your oven you’re in business.…

Ever been offered a free meal before? How about three? Our friend had some free invites from Blue Apron to give away so we were able to get three meals (a week’s worth) for two people at no cost to us. Yes please! It is hard to keep up with all of the food delivery service companies since a new one seems to pop up every month. Blue Apron is a meal kit delivery service which provides you with 99.99% of the items needed to prepare and cook a meal. It is probably the most famous one I’ve heard of.…

Sambazon Acai Cafe (Encinitas)

Sambazon Acai Cafe (Encinitas)

One of our friends introduced us to the Sambazon acai drink a while back and we’ve been somewhat obsessed with it ever since. Costco, our usual supplier has it most of the time. But it hasn’t been available lately. What would I do without my new crush, the superberry acai. I remember hearing about an actual Sambazon store located in Encinitas. An unsuccessful Sambazon haul at Costco prompted us to make a trip to Encinitas to seek out our elusive drink. Surely we wouldn’t strike out there.   DSC_0627

Upon entering we noticed a bigger selection than we’ve seen at big chain stores.…

T-Pop Desserts & More (Mira Mesa)

After my friends and I attended the D6 Night Market a few months ago, I guess we weren’t done eating yet. My strategic stomach space planning didn’t factor in an extra food stop. Here I thought I was the crazed foodie. My fellow food loving peoples wanted to stop by T-Pop Desserts & More for, well…more. They were taking me somewhere I had never been before but had heard a lot about. The pictures looked great from what I saw in other reviews, so in the very least it would make for a good presentation.…

Happy 4th of July weekend! Hope everyone enjoys it and gets to do something fun! Speaking of fun, Michael and I attended a Wine and Beer Tasting at the Welk Resorts up in Escondido last week. While we aren’t huge drinkers as you may know, that never stops us from enjoying a carefully planned menu and appreciating the pairings.

This event was unique in that we were invited to spend the night at the resort. It was the first time I had ever stepped foot on the property while Michael had come here years ago.…

Bite San Diego Downtown/Little Italy City Tour

Bite San Diego Downtown/Little Italy City Tour

Fun fact: my brother goes on more food tours than we do. He’s turning into quite the food tour expert. If I were to venture a guess, I’d say he’s gone on as many food tours as my oldest brother has gone on cruises. Everyone has their thing, don’t they? He and his girlfriend got us tickets to attend one with them in our very own backyard. Michael and I went on a Bite food tour a few years ago, but that one was in La Jolla. This one covered downtown and Little Italy.…

Nicole’s Naturals Gluten Free Waffle & Pancake Product Review

Nicole’s Naturals Gluten Free Waffle & Pancake Product Review

DSC_0008

We were sent a sample of Nicole’s Naturals Gluten Free Waffle & Pancake Mix a few weeks ago. I just got around to messing around with it last week. Since I don’t own a waffle maker I had to rely on my pancake pouring skills to make for a decent photo. Not only is the mix gluten free, but it is wheat, dairy, and soy free as well. Each serving is 150 calories with only one gram of sugar.

All you need is butter, eggs, and milk or water, and before you know it, you will have your mix ready to go.…
