Ginger Peach and Blueberry Crisp [Intro to Cooking]

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.

It's 4/20, and we all know what that means. If you're indulging today, may your "holiday" be filled with movie marathons and delicious munchies. If you're not partaking, why not take advantage of the movie marathons and munchies anyway? It' a win/win situation.

Intro to Cooking: Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Summer is winding down, school is starting up, alumni are still doing the same-sh*t-different-day dance. In summary, the end of August kind of blows. Which is why this week’s Intro to Cooking is throwing nutrition to the wind (sort of), because it’s time for something indulgent!

The Know: Fro Yo Pie

Fact: Fro-yo in the summer is amazeballs. Fact: Fro-yo stores are often overpriced. Fact: Every time I finish my serving of overpriced fro-yo I'm sad its over and I want more, but don't want to be fat. Or broke.

Stop Taking Shots and Eat Your Cocktails!

I love drinking alcohol, but weekend after weekend of beer pong and vodka shots can get old. So I got to thinking…how can I spice up my weekly binge drinking sesh? I hit the web in search of some “unique,” “fun” alcohol ideas, and out of these keywords came the most glorious idea I have ever heard. Cake-tails.

Do It Yourself Tuesday: (Decadent) Apple Dumplings

Apple pie has always been an American fave, sure, but that term "easy as pie" doesn't really apply to me. What is easy about cutting up a billion apples, making a crust and then waiting to eat it? So when I decided I wanted something similar, I made myself something akin to a mini apple pie, sans the irritating process of cutting up apples.
