A Devilishly Good Cerulean Cocktail


A devislishly good cerulean cocktail

‘This drink’? Oh. Ok. I see. You think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your neighborhood bar and you order… I don’t know… a Blue Hawaiian, for instance because you’re trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what you drink.

Kiwifuits are a super fruit (only kryptonite can kill them?) that contain 3 times the vitamin c as an orange. (Take that oranges!) Kiwifruit can also help you fall asleep (so can ambien, just don’t pull a Roseanne) eating two kiwifruits an hour before bed can help you fall asleep quicker and wake up better rested. (There goes my excuse to cranky) Continue reading “Kiwi Tart”

Eggplant and peach IRL
Introduce the two on your kitchen table…sanitize well after


Eggplant 🍆 and peach 🍑 emojis are popular. Really popular. Is it from fond memories of bland eggplant parm served up by a lunch lady with a light mustache in middle school? Is it because of the 1995 song 🎶 “Peaches” by alternative rock band, The Presidents of the United States of America 🇺🇸? The world 🌎 may never know. Continue reading “🍆🍑 IRL – The Recipe”
