I spent an hour and a half in Trader Joe’s on the Sunday before Hurricane Sandy just to write this article … and to pick up some bagels. Yes, the checkout lines at Trader Joe’s were 15-20 people deep when I got there. When I left, there was a line just to go in and [...]
Now that nature has reminded us what month we’re in, I’ve decided it’s about time to cook something that makes the chilly fall day a little less nippy. Indian cuisine is the ultimate comfort food for cold weather. The mix of curry and chilies is like a down North Face jacket for your mouth. Indian [...]
Let’s start this off by getting two things straight: No one actually “loves” being cold, and the only good thing about the oncoming bleak months (besides the oversized fashion magazines) is the pumpkin-spiced everything.

Take me out to the ballgame. Take me out to the crowd. Buy me some peanuts and overpriced Cracker Jacks. I don’t care if I have college debt, overdue apartment rent and life necessities like water to pay back. Wait, those aren’t the words. Yes, the dog days of summer are winding down, and with [...]
Whether you pronounce it “kaw-fee” or “kof-ee,” we can all come to the consensus that coffee’s existence is vital during the second half of the school term. Coffee addicts know there’s nothing quite like that first sip, or super-fast mindless chug, in the morning. It’s like the first breath of life, putting the drinker in [...]
You know that time when you taste pure bliss for the first time? When your eyes open to twice their size and your mouth practically convulses with pleasure?

As college students, we’re often the target of cheap kitchen appliance marketing. Anyone remember the Xpress cooker? Or the Ronco Showtime Rotisserie Oven? Just set it and forget it. So easy a college student can do it. Well, the Nowotniks have unfortunately fallen victim to the smoke and mirrors of several infomercial products, and I’ve [...]
