These polenta fries are rolled in Parmesan cheese and then baked until crispy. The fries have a crisp exterior and a soft, creamy interior.

I’m pretty much obsessed with all kinds of fries. I don’t think I’ve yet to come across a version I don’t like. A few years ago, I had polenta fries as an appetizer at an Italian restaurant and became hooked.

These chocolate cookies are each stuffed with a full peanut butter cup, giving them a rich and creamy center. It’s a great way to use up any leftover peanut butter cups you may have after Halloween.

We are just a few days away from Halloween. I stuck to my strategy of waiting until the very last weekend before Halloween to purchase candy so I wouldn’t be eating Halloween candy all month long. Since purchasing the candy on Saturday, I’ve already “taste tested” 22 pieces. This is not including the half empty bag of pumpkin spice latte M&M’s I supposedly bought for baking, but haven’t yet used for baking.

Lobster West is a small restaurant in Encinitas offering Maine lobster rolls and other seafood sandwiches. Lately, I’ve been on a mission to find the best lobster roll in San Diego. Lobster West is high on many people’s list of favorite lobster rolls. Their lobsters are shipped overnight from Maine, so that they can offer the authentic Maine lobster roll experience.

Some of the other menu offerings include crab rolls, shrimp rolls, and seafood chowder. Of course, Cape Cod chips are sold as well.

Scallop Roll

We started with the scallop roll, which was on their specials menu. The sandwich was served on a soft and toasted roll, brimming to the top with scallops, with a little lemon wedge on the side. I found the scallops to be tender and seasoned just right.
