The Dirty Cookie - Milk and Cookies in a Cookie Shot!


Hey food fans! I'm back with a new food review! This time it is for the opening day of a great new place for cookies and milk, this is The Dirty Cookie! Located in the Union Market at The District in Tustin you will quickly see that this is not your typical milk and cookie place! The cookies are made into a shot glass shape and lined with chocolate and then milk is poured in and behold, you have the cookie shot!


The menu is pretty simple! There are cookie shots, cookie sandwiches and milk on tap!


I ordered my cookie shots to go and they poured the milk into separate containers. You can choose from regular milk, vanilla almond milk, chocolate milk and Madagascar vanilla cream milk.

*PRO TIP: order you cookie shots to go! The amount of milk in the separate containers gives you a couple of shots of milk and trust me you will want them to finish your cookie!*


Here is my to go bag with my milk containers!


I got one of each cookie shot! I also got a different milk for each of my cookie shots! The chocolate chip cookie shot I got chocolate milk, the Madagascar vanilla cream milk for the red velvet cookie shot and vanilla almond milk for the cookies and cream cookie shot! All of them were fantastic but the red velvet cookie shot was my favorite! All the cookies were soft and the fun came in the careful sip of the milk with a bite of the cookie! Such a fun twist on an old classic!

The Dirty Cookie is located inside the Union Market at The District in Tustin.

Disney's Descendants creates more Disney Channel Musical Magic


Disney is hoping to take the same pixie dust that made High School Musical an international phenomenon to it's newest idea, Descendants, that debuts this Friday on the Disney Channel.

The story follows the teenage offspring of some of Disney's most famous villains Maleficent, Cruella de Vil, Jafar and the Evil Queen from Snow White. Add some of the offspring of the some of the most beloved Disney heroes in an elite prep school, some catchy songs and dance numbers and you have all the ingredients for for another Disney Channel smash hit! Even High School Musical director Kenny Ortega is back for this movie!

We begin this tale on the Isle of The Lost, a place where the Disney villains have been exiled but are free to raise their families. We meet the kids of these famous villains in a great energetic song called, "Rotten to the Core." Four of these kids are chosen to an elite prep school with, for the lack of a better term, the good kids.

Maleficent instructs the kids to steal the wand from the Fairy Godmother so she can get back into the rest of the world. But the kids begin to learn that their DNA doe not determine their destiny.

The cast is talented but the breakout star here is Sophia Carson who plays Evie, the Evil Queen's daughter. Her debut album is currently being recorded and I am sure her music will be cross-promoted throughout the Disney media empire. Maleficent is played her by one of my favorites, Kristin Chenoweth, who steals every scene she is in.

The songs are fun and range from Broadway to an awesome hip hop version of Be Our Guest. The story is fairly tightly woven within the stories of the classic Disney animated films these characters come from. A fun movie for the entire family and I can't wait to see what Disney does next as they get more and more mileage from it's classics!


Disney Descendants airs on the Disney Channel this Friday July 31st (8pm ET/PT).

Watch the first 6 minutes below!
