Eating out is pretty much a staple of the college experience. The plethora of options at the dining hall can only sustain you for so long until everything starts to taste like the same processed crap. But while you may have settled for a few favorites (au bon pain’s caprese sandwich and Bagel Gourmet’s burritos were personal favorites), don’t miss out on some classic college food experiences that will prepare you for the real world…no seriously.
When settling into school, my mom continuously versed me in how to properly store food. I received the ring around from everything from foods that spoil, foods subject to refrigeration and foods to toss within a week.

I was sitting around the other day, thinking about cooking—don’t judge me—when I realized how lucky we are to have modern appliances.

It is a voluptuous licking of the spoon, without ensuing culpability. It is food that loves the eater from the [...]
I wish I could take credit for a recipe this simple and this delicious, I really do. But, unfortunately, I can’t. This pulled pork recipe is something I found while perusing the website allrecipes.com, one of my favorite websites for recipes. I like the website because it allows real people to submit, discuss and review [...]
I hate waste, but my roommates and I love avocados with the sort of passion normal people reserve for cookie dough. We go to the market together about once a week to buy our staples and the produce and proteins I’ll be cooking for dinner. (Yes, we eat as a family…) Last Saturday, we met [...]
