R&S

Your most recent culinary discovery and obsession:

Jessica

Quest bars! They're high protein snack bars. Minka Kelly and Mandy Moore like them (I know from stalking their Instagram accounts!) I bought a bunch of different flavors - cookies and cream, chocolate chip cookie dough, mint chocolate chip, and s'mores. So far, mint chocolate chip is my favorite. (Mandy Moore's is chocolate chip cookie dough!)  

R&S

Midnight snack of choice:

Jessica

Dark chocolate covered almonds. Pints and pints of them.

R&S

Your motto in life:

Jessica

“Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.” - Stephen King

R&S

At 9 am each day, you are...

Jessica

Sitting in front of my computer, writing. These days it's the script for the movie adaptation of Luckiest Girl Alive. But very soon it will be book number two. 

R&S

On Sunday we'll find you wearing:

Jessica

Whatever I was wearing the night before.

R&S

The trend you hope never goes out of style:

Jessica

Skinny jeans. For a short girl, they're a godsend because I can wear the same pair with flats or heels.

R&S

Charity/charities you support:

Jessica

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. My husband was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma the first year we started dating. I ran the NYC half marathon with the LLS organization, Team in Training. During a time that felt very scary and out of my control, running brought me a lot of solace. 

R&S

Your favorite restaurant for brunch and your go-to order:

Jessica

Marc Forgione in Tribeca. It’s not really a “scene” for brunch, which is why I love it, and it’s a five minute walk from my apartment. I always order the market vegetable omelette with hot sauce and a side of maple fennel sausage. Instead of bread, they serve warm everything bagel muffins with vegetable butter. I'm salivating just thinking about them. 

R&S

Favorite Instagram account to follow:

Jessica

Inspiralized. It’s run by Ali Maffucci, of the blog by the same name. She makes noodles out of vegetables and comes up with the most delicious, healthy recipes that make eating clean (something I try to do every now and then), seem not so awful. 

R&S

Your current Netflix addiction:

Jessica

Veep! I am hoping some of the show’s wit rubs off on me.
