    Marvel's Market

    Marvel's Market

    I don't know a lot about baking and I've never made donuts myself, but I'd say I'm a pretty good judge of a good donut. Let's be honest, it's not that hard to be. What is hard is to score higher on my personal donut meter than a Marvel's Market donut.

    A Little Piece of Vegan Heaven: Clementine Bakery

    A Little Piece of Vegan Heaven: Clementine Bakery

    I moved to Brooklyn just over 3 years ago, and I'm not exaggerating when I say that I go to Clementine maybe three times a week—every week. This tiny bakery near my apartment in Clinton Hill has become my neighborhood staple. I never expected to find "my neighborhood spot" so soon after moving to the area, but it truly was love at first bite (you'll have to try their wraps—or anything really, to understand what I mean!)

    The Post-COVID-19 Business World - Part 2: Restaurants

    The Post-COVID-19 Business World - Part 2: Restaurants

    NOTE: In the first article in this series (The Post-COVID-19 Business World — Part 1: Overview), we sketched out the very changed world that all of us are living through presently as we cope, both individually and as a society, to the COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic. We set the stage for examining how the business world in general will change in what will be the post-pandemic environment to come (and yes, it will!). We believe that it is critical that companies across the board, from the largest corporations to small, local businesses develop strategies to succeed in the post-pandemic environment.

    What The Flip!

    He has been told by a former employee that Gordon Ramsay has nothing on him and he has been known to use some slightly dodgy methods to further the cause of a suburban market but “What The Flip’s” owner and operator, Islam is a warm, intelligent and empathetic human being with nothing but the community’s best interests at heart.

    Unpopular opinion: Vegetables are better than dessert

    Unpopular opinion: Vegetables are better than dessert

    Long ago when we were each a young child, I’m willing to bet you heard your parents trying to bribe you to eat vegetables by threatening you with the loss of dessert? I myself have done this many times as a parent, have you? This common strategy may backfire and increase your child's resistance to eating vegetables or other healthy foods. As a child I remember hating vegetables not giving them a chance, because of being forced to eat them just so I could eat my cake too. It has instilled it into our brains that dessert is better than vegetables that’s for sure. As I got older I realized how many vegetables I use to turn my nose up at that I actually enjoy and prefer over any type of sweets or desserts. So here I am with my unpopular opinion to many and ready to debunk that dessert are better than your veggies.

    7 drinks, 7 days: caffeine edition

    7 drinks, 7 days: caffeine edition

    No one asked me to do this. I didn’t need to do it for any specific reason, except I was preparing to be in my house for a long, indeterminable amount of time and decided to make it interesting. I tried these 7 energy drinks over the course of the last 7 days. I’ve never had any of them before this, so here are my first impressions of each, along with a rating out of 10. Enjoy!
