Strawberry Fields Salad

March 20, 2015

Happy first official day of Spring! 

With warm weather approaching and swimsuit season peeking its ugly head around the corner, I wanted to share one of my favorite salads recipes. It's one I sell at the cafe and not only is it easy to make, it tastes just as good as it looks. 

Torrey Pines

March 4, 2015
One thing to know about San Diegans is that they love to hike. There are tons of hiking trails in this city and most of them come with beautiful views if you're willing to make it to the top. 

One of the very first hikes I did after moving to San Diego was Torrey Pines. Compared to the other trails/mountains, it's pretty short so it's perfect for beginners like myself. There are also smaller trails along the way up so you're able to see the views from different points of the mountain. The best part of is that at the end of the hike you will end up at the bottom of the mountain, right onto the beach. I don't care how cold that water is, you gotta soak your feet in! 

My advice is, if you have the morning or afternoon off - put on some sneakers, rub on sunblock on and grab a bottle of water and make the trek up Torrey Pines. Sometimes I forget that I live in one of the most beautiful cities but as soon I take the hike up there I always fall back in love with it.
