An Ode To Mellow Mushroom

An Ode To Mellow Mushroom

Happiness is pizza.

True pizza lovers know where to get the perfect pizza pie.

If they told you there was a better pizza joint than here, it would most definitely be a lie.

From the atmosphere to the service to the exotic pizza recipes,

Mellow Mushroom is the place to go, and make sure you arrive hungry.

When you walk through the front doors of the restaurant, you are greeted with crazy wall art.

The ambience has almost a “hippie” vibe; the use of tie-dye is off the charts!

The light fixtures are wavy and add to the groovy feel.

These along with other free spirit decorations magnify the customers’ zeal.

You sit down, order your drink, crack open the large menu

and are overwhelmed with the number of options, you're not sure what to do!

You decide to start with an appetizer, but which one will you choose?

How about settle on the pretzels, what have you got to lose?

The pretzels are cooked to perfection and can be served in three different styles.

Whether you choose garlic butter and parmesan, butter and kosher salt, or cinnamon sugar and honey, you will be eating those pretzels with a smile.

The dipping sauces include mustard or red sauce, either one is a good selection.

While eating your pretzels, you might as well glance over the entrée section.

Yes, Mellow Mushroom offers salads, hoagies, and calzones,

But you’re at a joint known for their mouthwatering pizzas, you can even confirm this truth by checking Yelp on your phone.

With pizza names such as “Thai Dye” and “Kosmic Karma,” you wonder if you should stick with the hippie theme,

But if you’re a potato lover like me, the “Red Skin Potato Pie” is the ultimate pizza dream.

The delicious pie has an olive oil and garlic base and is coated with toppings that will please:

Applewood smoked bacon, caramelized onions, cheddar, and mozzarella cheese.

The pizza is then garnished with chives and drizzled with spicy ranch dressing and sour cream.

Your first bite will have you running to hug the entire Mellow Mushroom team.

And then there’s the crust, many customers’ favorite part of the pie.

You will not want to leave the restaurant without giving the crust a try.

The doughy crust is brushed with garlic butter and covered with cornmeal and parmesan right before serving.

It may not be the healthiest of crusts, but I’m sure you are deserving.

Oh, Mellow Mushroom, don’t ever change.

The slightest alteration in your perfection would just be too strange.

If you hold onto your groovy vibes, you will always attract many guests.

Well, thank you, Mellow Mushroom, for being the best.

3 Reasons Why Step Dads Are Super Dads


I often hear a lot of people complaining about their step-parents and wondering why they think that they have any authority over them. Although I know that everyone has different situations, I will be the first to admit that I am beyond blessed to have a step dad. Yep, I said it. My life wouldn't be the same that it is not without him in it. Let me tell you why I think step dads are the greatest things since sliced bread.

1. They will do anything for you, literally.

My stepdad has done any and every thing for me. From when I was little until now. He was and still is my go-to. If I was hungry, he would get me food. If something was broken, he would fix it. If I wanted something, he would normally always find a way to get it. He didn't spoil me (just sometimes), but he would make sure that I was always taken care of.

2. Life lessons.

Yup, the tough one. My stepdad has taught me things that I would have never figured out on my own. He has stood beside me through every mistake. He has been there to pick me up when I am down. My stepdad is like the book of knowledge: crazy hormonal teenage edition. Boy problems? He would probably make me feel better. He just always seemed to know what to say. I think that the most important lesson that I have learned from my stepdad is: to never give up. My stepdad has been through three cycles of leukemia. He is now in remission, yay!! But, I never heard him complain. I never heard him worry and I never saw him feeling sorry for himself. Through you, I found strength.

3. He loved me as his own.

The big one, the one that may seem impossible to some step parents. My stepdad is not actually my stepdad, but rather my dad. I will never have enough words to explain how grateful I am for this man, which is why I am attempting to write this right now. It takes a special kind of human to love another as if they are their own. There had never been times where I didn't think that my dad wouldn't be there for me. It was like I always knew he would be. He introduces me as his daughter, and he is my dad. I wouldn't have it any other way. You were able to show me what family is.

So, dad... thanks. Thanks for being you. Thanks for being awesome. Thanks for being strong. Thanks for loving me. Thanks for loving my mom. Thanks for giving me a wonderful little sister. Thanks for being someone that I can count on. Thanks for being my dad.

I love you!

My Strange Obsession: Bibibop Addition

I am obsessed with Bibibop.


I am obsessed with Bibibop.

Sounds strange, right? But it's true.

For those of you who have never had the opportunity to experience Bibibop, Bibibop is an Asian Grill set up similar to Chipotle. You're able to go down the line of food, choosing a base (always go with the purple rice), hot toppings (they all slap), protein (the tofu is to die for), some cold toppings (a great way to try kale for the first time), and a sauce (if you don't get the Yum Yum sauce, you're weird.)

And, let me tell you, the final product is always delicious.

I hadn't been introduced to Bibibop until this past year, but once I tried it for the first time, I never looked back. Now I am constantly craving the taste of the Yum Yum sauce. I usually hit up Bibibop once every two weeks, but if I was rich, I would probably eat it every other day.

Though, admittedly, the prices are pretty good. And they celebrate meatless Mondays with 20% off to anyone who doesn't get meat in their bowl.

Plus, it's pretty healthy. Unlike most restaurants, like Chipotle, where your somewhat healthy meal can instantly become bad for you with the addition of something on the menu, Bibibop's entire menu provides nutritional value and offers gluten-free and vegan options.

Basically, Bibibop is the most underrated and most delicious restaurant in the world, which is why my obsession with it runs so deep. Although I would usually admit that obsessions are unhealthy, I think this one might be okay.
