New Pizza Joint Gallops into Midtown

by

Have you ever been on a cleanse? You know, the kind where you have to give up tasty things like bread and alcohol? Well I did one of those for the last two weeks and felt very proud of myself for not cheating or complaining too much. So naturally, as soon as the cleanse ended, […]

CREAM (Cookies Rule Everything Around Me), Davis

by

I can’t think of anything better than a warm cookie fresh out of the oven. Unless, that cookie happens to be accompanied by freshly scooped ice cream, and sandwiched with, well, yet another cookie.

Banana Cream Pie Jell-O Pudding Pops

by

Jell-O Pudding Pops. If only I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard those three words in the last month. It all started when my boyfriend, Joe, and I took BuzzFeed’s “How Many ’90s Foods Have You Tried?” quiz—because it was clearly more important than actually being productive, okay?

Traditionally served in copper mugs (I bought mine here!), the Mule was originally introduced in 1939 to help promote vodka during an era when gin reigned.
