I love reading days. By the Thursday prior to exam week, my term papers are all submitted, and there’s this easy feeling about campus – for most people, finals don’t start for another four days or so, and it’s easy to forget the storm that’s coming. I usually haul my books to the pool and [...]
“Mom?” “Yes, baby?” “Can I ask you a question?” “You want pancakes for dinner, don’t you?” “…Yes.” This is a common exchange in my apartment, and although I should mention that to my knowledge I currently have no biological children, I do have two beautiful roommates whom I love to spoil. (I certainly brag about [...]
Well folks, we’ve made it to mid-Winter. It was a bit touch and go up in the Northeast where I’m situated, especially after Nemo and Plato (whoever devised the names for winter storms is clearly a boss). Depending on where you’re located, you very well may have had enough of snow and bitter coldness to last you for a few years.

But, boy was I wrong. While I still hold onto the belief [...]
While I am all for putting on a production, when I have the time and money, sometimes I just don’t feel like it, and I turn to dishes that are ridiculously easy to make: ridiculously easy and delicious. I discovered this little gem a couple of years back, and it is still as simple and [...]
The leftover turkey sandwich is a Thanksgiving staple to any festive foodie. Although sweet and savory, by my third bulky roll it begins to lose its appeal. What is one to do with all the dishes full of slice turkey breast, garlic mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce clogging your refrigerator? Instead of chucking the Thanksgiving leftovers, store them in compatible glass jars. This savvy trick is versatile as a single serving ready to go, a festive gift to a friend and easy storage!
Tradition – such a stalwart word – is really more of a loose and flowing concept. It evolves, in perception at the very least. But at the same time, tradition anchors us in something real. It is associative, and thus comforting. For me, it’s the irreverent (and vaguely illegal) lighting of a homemade pyrotechnics pontoon [...]
