-sh anything I start. Except for my Honeycup Uniquely Sharp Stone Ground Spicy Mustard (it changes lives. And eggs.) and this Chocolove Orange Peel Dark Chocolate bar. Okay, and like seven fresh ginger beer crafted cocktails with bottom shelf bourbon because somehow, Jim Beam, Bulleit and Makers all taste the same to me, so bring out whatever is lingering.

Popcorners: a memoir

Random Rambling.


I typically don’t convey essay-like forms about a bag of chips, but I just felt like it, seeing that I became overly opinionated on a bumpy flight.

I fly JetBlue because of the sea salt popcorn and rice cake hybrid known as Popcorners. The 140-calorie shiny bag houses the perfect amount of crunch and sodium, so you feel dehydrated enough to chug a small water, while wishing you could guzzle a Moscow Mule instead. I don’t think that makes sense out loud, but it does in my head.

Head to the Brooklyn Museum A$AP Rocky because this exhibit is an absolute must. I’m going to be honest here, I don’t really get art. Yes, I was in complete awe when I saw Monet’s water lillies at L’Orangerie, but I’m equally as intrigued by the artful endeavor of a warm, crusty, half-baked Levain chocolate chip cookie. Okay, maybe not equal, but…actually, I don’t know.

Dumplings & bourbon

The intake didn’t occur simultaneously (bourbon and dumplings), but come to think of it, a whiskey sour with veggie dumplings sounds kind of…not too shabby. FYI, the one from The Leadbelly changes lives. I’m convinced it’s my weekly dosage of anti-inflammatory, cold-fighting remedies–ginger. Anyways, life had come to the point where I almost had to eat my phone if another Mimi Cheng’s dumpling surfaced on Instagram. No need, I went with Jilly and attacked these kale, zucchini, mushroom and egg mighty veggie dumplings. Boom, off the list.
