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.…

We had the pleasure of sitting down with Karen of Sugar Rush San Diego to talk about how her passion for homemade treats has become a growing business and of course, to sample some of her baked goods. We are giving away two dozen of Karen’s cookies to one lucky winner! She started Sugar Rush San Diego about a year ago and has been mostly making cookies; however, she does have other offerings like lemon bars and brownies as well. She learned how to cook and bake from her mother at a young age and one of her main goals is to share what homemade cookies actually taste like.…

Yes that’s right. Jack in the Box is getting in on the cronut craze. While they are a little behind the trend, we aren’t ones to pass up an opportunity to try these typically tasty treats. A few weeks ago we picked some up. Much like the Vons version, we weren’t expecting much. That’s the best approach going into these. Don’t get your hopes up, and then be pleasantly surprised.  DSC_0004 DSC_0010 And pleasantly surprised we were. The Jack in the Box version of the croissant donuts are miniature and topped with cinnamon and sugar.…

Always on the lookout for fun new places, we heard about a new trendy dessert place called Afters opening not long ago. Their specialty? Ice cream filled donuts, or Milky Buns as they like to call them. It just so happened to be along the way on our road trip up north. What better time than now to stop by and check them out!? They have over 500 reviews on Yelp and have only been around since February. Afters Ice Cream is located in Fountain Valley off of the 405 freeway, about 90 miles north of San Diego and 40 miles south of Los Angeles.…
