M&M Donuts is a popular donut shop in Anaheim, famous for their blueberry donuts.

We’ve been wanting to visit since I discovered them two years ago. The odd hours (9:00 pm-2:00 am and 5:00 am-12:00 pm) make it hard for us to stop by. On our first attempt, we arrived around 9:00pm to find the wait over an hour long. We tried again once early in the morning last year, only to find they were out of donuts.

The shop is quite tiny and you can drive right up to order. I took a few photos from my failed visits but I can’t seem to find them anymore.

Last month, my brother and his girlfriend came to visit, and they brought me an entire box of M&M donuts!

I’ve tried quite a few blueberry donuts at the various donut shops in San Diego, and I couldn’t wait to compare.

This summery mug cake has a sweet cream cake base and is studded with bright red strawberry pieces.

Between Wimbledon and the World Cup, our TV has pretty much permanently been on ESPN. I always crave strawberries and cream this time of year, the signature dish at Wimbledon. One day, I hope to attend a match and enjoy some of those famed strawberries and cream.

This isn’t a new recipe, but I wanted to take a new set of photos. It’s one of my favorite mug cake recipes and is included in my upcoming book. The cake is flavored with sweet cream, with fresh strawberry pieces mixed in.


It’s been a while since I wrote about The Secret Cookie Service, a late night cookie delivery service in San Diego with “secret cookie service agents” dressed in suits and donning dark shades, delivering cookies to your door.

(As a reminder, I do know the owner on a personal level. This isn’t a “sponsored post” but I just wanted to give full disclosure. My original post can be found here.)

Since my posts two years ago, The Secret Cookie Service (“SCS”) has continued to expand. They are active across all the San Diego college campuses, they’ve been featured on the local news multiple times, and their cookies can be found at various local San Diego businesses. They offer dozens of cookie flavors and the team of delivery agents has greatly increased as well (I love that there are female agents too!).

Now, having conquered college campuses, the SCS is starting their next big venture: a physical cookie stand in Mission Beach, adding another option to the late-night eating scene. Whether you’re hungry after a day at the beach with your family and friends, or have the late-night munchies after a night out, the Secret Cookie Service Stand is available from 6pm until they sell out (usually around midnight) Thursdays through Saturdays.
