It’s been a year and a half since my first taste of Dynamo Donuts and I’ve been obsessing and dreaming about them ever since. On a recent trip to San Francisco, I had one stop I wanted to make more than anything: another trip to Dynamo Donuts.

The store front of Dynamo Donuts is quite small, but the offerings are not. There are two things that really stand out about Dynamo Donuts for me: the flavors and the texture.

Flavors. Dynamo Donuts offered some bold and unique flavor choices that change daily.

Normally I’m a ‘just plain glazed donut’ type of girl, but when it comes to these gourmet donuts, it’s all about the flavors. There were so many interesting choices, I decided to get a dozen. Look how pretty and colorful they look.


Recently, I had a nice lunch with fellow food bloggers CC of Pink Candles at Ridgemont High and Dennis of A Radiused Corner. FH came along too and so did one of CC’s friends who isn’t a blogger but is quite the adventurous eater. This post isn’t about the lunch- I’ll get to it soon, though you can read CC’s recap already here. After lunch, we swung by San Diego Desserts for a sweet treat.

I’ve never been to San Diego Desserts so I was excited to check it out. While the store is named “San Diego Desserts” they actually serve a full lunch menu as well. The burgers looked pretty mouthwatering…

Tea Leaf Eggs


Chinese tea leaf eggs are one of my favorite ways to eat eggs. They have a pretty appearance and they taste good. Like hard boiled eggs but with flavor.

I recently flew home for a weekend visit.  My mom almost always makes tea leaf eggs when I’m home. Tea leaf eggs aren’t too hard to make (recipe below), but it is time consuming and I don’t have the patience to make them myself. So I love coming home to a batch of tea leaf eggs.
