Since COVID 19 began and many of us have gone into hiding in our homes during the quarantine, there hasn’t...
Summer is officially coming to a close, and I will be spending my week mourning the end of the fresh produce season. Sure, the fall vegetables are on their way, but there is nothing like a summer tomato or a juicy Georgia peach.
Here in NYC, we've had a strangely warm winter. For the most part, it's been pretty great. Who could complain about sunshine and temperatures in the 50s and 60s during winter? But there is one sad part – no snow. And even worse, there's rain. Few things are more depressing than cold winter rain.
I always look forward to dessert, but I pay extra special attention on Christmas. Half of the fun is looking at all the different festive holiday creations and then drooling over the gooey goodness.
Right now, America is experiencing economic hardships. Times so tough that even our multi-million dollar making, jump shot shooting, around-the-rim slam dunking NBA ballers can’t even catch a break! Diehard fans worst nightmare has officially come to fruition: the NBA lock-out is here.
HAPPY OFFICIAL FIRST DAY OF WINTER! It’s hard to remember when you're spending half of your day bundling up in the thickest, warmest, heaviest things you own just to walk outside to get the mail, but it's is the most wonderful time of the yearrrrrrrr! Yes, really.
After months and months of bemoaning and belaboring senior year, the fall semester is almost complete. Half of my senior year is over. My lasts semester taking a full course load is over. It’s the end of an era, the beginning of something new. It’s what I’ve been counting down to since October.
We’ve watched the parade. We’ve carved the turkey. We stuffed ourselves with stuffing and cranberry sauce and ate pumpkin pie until we wanted to puke. And then, when the feeling passed, we ate more. The holiday season is upon us. So I better just get in the spirit.
Though we've certainly celebrated our fair share of cupcake recipes here on Intro to Cooking, I hope the foodies out there can forgive me for serving up another cupcake creation. Hell, you should, because these babies combine the two most important culinary elements of college in one mind-blowing, gut-busting dessert: BEER. CUPCAKES.
The edges are crispy and savory while the insides are soft and piping hot. They’re so much better than the fries you buy at the concession stand or a fast food restaurant, because they’re actually made from potatoes. They're easy to make and even easier to devour. Just writing this makes me want to whip up a batch and chow down. In my bed. While watching an ANTM marathon.
Like Reese’s? Yeah, me too. Honestly, I'm not sure I can ever trust someone who doesn't. The problem is that a girl can’t subsist on peanut butter cups alone . . . but it’s fun to try. No, seriously, the problem is more that those things are crazy unhealthy.
For some reason, sugar cookies make me think of Spring. Maybe because they’re light, sweet, and I could eat about seven. Alright. So that last thing has no coloration to Spring, but I can eat my own weight in sugar cookies.
