Some people are content with the typical toast and butter. I am definitely not one of those people. Adding an assortment of your favorite ingredients can transform an ordinary piece of toast into a gourmet dish. Mexitoast is something I concocted while studying for and taking midterms during my sophomore year. When I was growing [...]

Now that I’m on co-op, I’ve joined the majority of corporate America in having a daily routine. With my new schedule, I’ve had a lot more time to devote to hanging out with friends, working out and cooking. I’ve also had the chance to try new things, including Bikram yoga. Bikram yoga is basically yoga in [...]
I like Asian food and culture, including bubble tea, pineapple buns and sushi, so naturally I love Chinatown. I’m from New York, so comparatively speaking, Philly’s Chinatown is considerably smaller than New York’s and not conveniently next to a Little Italy. However, what it lacks in size, it makes up for in quality. Philadelphia Chinatown [...]
Some people get excited when they buy new clothes. Some like new electronics, books, running shoes, etc. Don’t get me wrong; I enjoy getting all those things, but I really get excited about new kitchen supplies. That being said, I finally bought myself a slow cooker! Slow cookers are electronic pots that run at a [...]
There are some words that I’ll probably never say correctly. Either they’re too hard to pronounce, or more often, I have said the word incorrectly my entire life to the point where it’s ingrained in my mind. Sometimes friends will point out that I’m not saying the word right, and I just won’t believe them. [...]
It’s beginning to feel a lot like spring. For me, that means lots of walks around Philadelphia exploring the shops, the culture, and most importantly, the food. After purchasing some produce and having a small lunch with some friends at Reading Terminal Market, we strolled around Philadelphia, had coffee in Rittenhouse and stopped at one [...]
As I walk down the aisles of the grocery store, the variety of sauces, spices and produce inspires me. I sometimes walk in with a specific meal in mind, but I usually end up with completely different ingredients in my cart. On this particular trip to the store, I originally intended to make Gorgonzola gnocchi [...]
Now I know spring break is quickly approaching, so many of you are catching up on your perfect beach bods, but you should definitely treat yourself to one of these. This recipe is an easy way to become the favorite chef at a party. From experience, I can promise that you’ll hear the whispers of [...]
Do you find that your eyes are drawn to a specific appetizer on a menu every time you eat at that restaurant? If no one you’re with wants it as an appetizer, do you order it as your own dinner? For me, that dish is Thai chicken lettuce wraps. They’re healthy, light and extremely flavorful. [...]
I’m the type of person who could make guacamole every single day. To me, the taste of fresh avocados, lime, cilantro and tomatoes harmonize together like no other dip. To make it healthy, I eat guacamole with carrots, but sometimes I splurge on my caloric intake and go with Tostitos with a hint of lime. [...]
Where does everyone shop for food on campus? A good majority of you would probably say Trader Joe’s. Why not? It’s close and inexpensive, they have free samples (that work so well on me because nine times out of 10 I buy what they offer), and the food is what I like to call “bomb.”Emily [...]
Ah, January, a month of bitter chill and a super-packed recreation center. You now what they say, new year, new you! Well, I’ve already met my 10 sit-up quota for the year, and it’s time to get cooking. Everyone always says that breakfast is the most important meal of the day for people maintaining a [...]
What do you get your Secret Santa when you only have a $15 budget and you’re into cooking? Well, some homemade cookie cake and hot chocolate, of course! It’s Secret Santa week at The Triangle, and I’m already patting myself on the back for bringing it back after not having it last year. We have [...]
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. I did a little test at the grocery story this week. I took note of every seasonal pumpkin spice item I [...]
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? I’m talking about eating your first Reese’s cup or slice of authentic tiramisu. Well, I’m here to say I’ve been to the Promised Land: I’ve tasted heaven, [...]
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 [...]
