Marylou's First Impression

Marylou's First Impression

My very first experience.

For all of you that know me well, you will know my love for Dunkin' Donuts. I always seem to have a Dunkin's iced coffee in my hand. Even though they don't have probably the most quality coffee in the world I always find that it just tastes amazing. However, I am not opposed to finding different coffee places that I like. I love Dippin Donuts coffee, but it's too far away from me. I also really enjoy Starbucks, however, I think it's extremely overpriced and I honestly just cannot afford to have that everyday. I have heard a lot about Marylou's Coffee and I have wanted to try it for a while. I feel like there has been so much hype about it and it really intrigued me. I have seen pictures of their coffee shops and think they are absolutely adorable. There really isn't one near where I live, but when I was down at the cape this past weekend I finally got to try it. Now this isn't really a review of Marylou's it is more of a first impression.

Now when I walked in I thought the inside of Marylou's was absolutely adorable. It was not busy when I walked in, there was probably maybe two people in front of me however the people behind the counter were running around like crazy people as if there were 50 people in line. The girls sort of bombarded me and my friend when they asked for our coffee order. They yelled at us in a super high pitched voice saying "WHAT CAN I GET FOR YA?!" and I have to say I was really taken aback by how they asked for our order. It sort of sounded like they were annoyed that they had to take our order and it was very condescending. Not all the girls were like this, but the one that took my order just sort of irritated me. So I ordered my coffee (a medium iced coffee with milk and sugar), nothing too fancy, I'm not really into coffee flavors because I genuinely enjoy the taste of coffee. So I got my coffee which you know always great and I am ready to pay but the girl tells me to "hold on" because another girl is using the cash register, which is totally fine. However, it took this girl maybe 10 minutes to check the people in front of me out and then then she couldn't ring me out until the other girl who took my actual order came over. Now that girl was behind the counter just eating pizza and I was standing waiting to pay for like a good 15 minutes. I finally paid for my reasonably priced coffee and finally was able to leave. I left just a tiny bit annoyed by the fact that I had to wait so long but I was still excited to try the actual coffee.

Now the coffee itself didn't taste bad, I actually thought it was pretty good. However, there was, like, no ice in it and because the ice is just kept in a bin behind the counter, just melting, my coffee was still warm. It was not iced at all and the fact that it was warm really pissed me off since it was 90 degrees out and I just wanted a cold, iced coffee. I was extremely disappointed by this. So when I got back to the house I was staying at, I had to put more ice in the coffee then stick it in the freezer to make it colder. Once I did this the coffee was very good and I quite enjoyed it. It was just sort of annoying that it wasn't given to me like that. Now I don't know if I went to Marylou's at a bad time or it just wasn't that good of a Marylou's but I was sort of disappointed by it. Now I will try it again because I know it is probably better then my first experience. But as of right now I give Marylou's a B/B — as a whole.

A Love Letter To My Air Fryer

And why you would love an fryer too...


In a previous article, I wrote about how love to use for organizing things. I'm still loving Trello. I've haven't grown bored of it and stopped using it (like I have with some other organizational systems). This time, I'm going to share another item that I love, and it's for one of my favorite things, food! I finally gave in and bought an air fryer, and after my first use, I literally said that it's wonderful! I bought a small air fryer. It only holds about two quarts, but it's perfect for quick lunches.

I thought I'd love the air fryer if it could dry fry food with little to no oil, and it does just that. I'm also in love with the air fryer, because I could simply put the food in it, set the timer and live my life for a few minutes until the food is done. I don't have to stand over it and watch the food cook. That makes the air fryer a winner! Did I mention that it really does work?! Yes, it does work. Now, you could buy foods that are already breaded and throw them in the air fryer, but if you want to go the healthier route, you can use bread crumbs, flour, and eggs to make your own crispy coatings for your foods. Dipping your food in your own homemade batter cuts out some of the salt and added chemicals in the frozen pre-fried foods.

You can also fry foods that do not even need a homemade batter. Without using the batter, I've made sweet potato French fries and burritos in it. The tortilla for the burrito turned out nicely crispy, but I didn't leave it in the air fryer long enough for it to be crunchy. The sweet potato fries came out nice. I've tried making crispy chickpeas with Italian seasoning, but they weren't to my liking. However, I have loved everything else that I've made in the air fryer. Sometimes I just put a quick meal in it, just to re-heat it, since I don't use a microwave. I just think that using the air fryer is healthier than using microwaves, and I love that I don't need to put my food in a special box or anything for it to be really crispy. If you love fried chicken or fried fish, you'd love this little machine as much as I do!
