I love eating eggs for breakfast. Or any time of the day really. I came across a recipe for mini frittatas on Family Fun. They remind me of mini omelettes because you  have an egg base, and then you fill it with whatever mix-ins you desire. I chose shredded cheese, bell peppers and bacon. Mmm bacon.

These were really easy to whip up and I like how versatile they are with the fillings. They were initially puffy but sank down and became kind of wrinkled and shriveled after they cooled which is too bad. They don’t look so pretty but they taste great.

Two weekends ago, FH and I attended Taste of Hillcrest. We got to spend an afternoon in beautiful San Diego weather, walking around Hillcrest, grabbing bites from participating restaurants. There was a whopping 52 places participating this year. We tried to move fast, but we were only able to hit about 20+ places before needing to leave early and also being completely stuffed. Perhaps if I stayed the last hour I could have come closer to hitting them all.

I always enjoy experiencing these Taste events because it let’s you taste many restaurants in one go and gives you a better idea of places you want to try in the future and ones you’d rather skip.

You pick up your tickets at will call and then are given a stamp card and map. Each participating restaurant is assigned a number and when you visit that place for a bite, someone will be there to mark it off. So no repeats allowed. In front of each restaurant were blue signs with the assigned numbers, making the places much easier to spot.

Here are some highlights from our eating extravaganza:

Mini vanilla and chocolate cupcakes from Babycakes

Spicy Edamame, aspargus salad and sesame sauce teriyaki chicken wing from Raku

Pizza from Arrivederci

Pulled pork from Urban Eats

Santa Monica roll, margarita, and chicken wing from Fiesta Cantina

Pink lemonade, fried green beans and crown hats to wear from Urban Mo's

Red miso wings from EmpireHouse Urban Palate

Pulled pork and smoked beans from Brazen BBQ

Graham cracker flavored cupcakes, topped with chocolate ganache and toasted mini marshmallows.

I’ve been on a serious S’more kick lately. First I made S’mores brownies. Then I made these S’more cupcakes. Then I went a little crazy and came up with quite a few more S’more recipes which I’ll be sharing, though not all at once because I don’t want to overwhelm anyone.

After this weekend though I think I got S’mores out of my system. At least for now. We’ll see how long it lasts.
