Pancakes.. with SPRINKLES.
Yes, you read that right. I’ve just been sittin around wondering why in the world I’ve never had them before this past week. I was lucky enough to get to spend last weekend with my super cool cousins who introduced me to this amazingness one morning. I was seriously obsessed! If you’ve never tried this before, I suggest you start- especially if you’re a sprinkle lover like myself. I don’t even know what it is about them that’s just so great. The combination of the pancakes with the sprinkles is like a little birthday party in your mouth- really. AND even better with some syrup and whipped cream. Try it out and get a little crazy, I promise you won’t be disappointed!
I’ve had coconut rice before but this week I had the best I’ve ever had in Montclair, NJ. Cuban Pete’s. I’ve always heard good things about this place and I was getting my haircut closeby so I decided to finally check it out. It definitely lived up to it’s reputation and WOW, the coconut rice was to die for! I’ve tried making coconut rice myself and I’ve had it at other restaurants but nothing compares to this place. If you live close enough to make the trip and haven’t been there already, you should definitely check this place out. Their cuban food is so flavorful and delicious (like most authentic spanish food). Coconut rice is my new obsession. I might even have to stop by again before I go back to school tomorrow!
Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher
I’ve always loved this Starbucks drink but lately I’ve been loving it even more. I’ve recently become a coffee person but I usually like sweeter drinks. The good thing about this one is that it has green coffee extract in it for a boost of natural energy and its exactly what it’s called- a refresher. I’ve been stopping by starbucks lately after the gym for one to re-energize and because I love the taste. I’ve tried the other flavors but this one is definitely my favorite. The best part is a grande only has 15g of sugar. Okay maybe that doesn’t seem so great but compared to a lot of juices and sugared up coffees I think this guy wins!
