Twenty Grill is a restaurant located inside the beautiful Sheraton Resort in Carlsbad.  A few weeks ago, FH and I went to go dine there.

It’s been a while since we had a “date night” type dinner, so it was fun to dress up and go out. It’s too bad the sun is setting so early now because I would have loved to see the resort in the daylight.

There is complimentary valet parking for customers dining at Twenty/20 Grill.

We came on a Sunday and sat in a comfy booth.  Sundays is “primetime Sundays” and you can get prime rib with baked potato for either $20.20 (10 oz cut), $28.20 (14 oz cut) or $42.20 (32 oz cut).



Sorry for the flurry of recipe posts but I had some deadlines to meet. I’m entering some Halloween recipe contests.

When I read about a recipe contest, I immediately thought about those pumpkin bread cakes with nutella filling I previously made using this pan.

I really wanted to make them look like jack-o’-lanterns rather than just pumpkins, so I set about making jack-o’-lanterns.

Recently, Foodbuzz teamed up with Newman’s Own and offered bloggers a chance to make recipe videos featuring Newman’s Own products.

The recipe had to be easy and made in 30 minutes or less.  Bloggers chosen would be given a free HD flip camera to film the video and provided with various Newman’s Own products like salad dressings, sauces and pizzas. Looking at these products, the first thing I thought of was stuffed pepperoni pizza bites. They are easy to make, taste delicious, and would incorporate some Newman’s products.

So I threw my proposal into the mix and a few weeks later, I was informed that my proposal had been selected! While I was ecstatic about receiving a HD flip camera, now I had to actually film a video. Having filmed and edited them in college, I knew what a long and painful process this could be.
