It’s big-little season in the Panhellenic world! If you don’t know what that is, or if it hasn’t taken over your social media news feeds, I’ll tell you. When you join a sorority, you get paired with an older “sister” who is a mentor, a friend, and is there to help you adjust to the […]

Changing leaves; football; apples; and the fresh, crisp air are clear indicators that fall is here. But in autumn, pumpkins take the cake, cookies, lattes and so much more. I’m usually one to turn down trends, but the pumpkin-fad train is something I’ll gladly ride. You can really exploit the whole pumpkin experience if you’d […]
At Drexel, lunch trucks seem to dominate the campus. We have a myriad of gourmet trucks near Buckley Field, and the typical “grease trucks” spread out throughout campus. What college student doesn’t like to revert to quick, convenient and cheap food? I can’t deny my love for Cucina Zapata or the fact that I’ve picked […]
As the sisterhood chair of Delta Phi Epsilon, I plan fun events for our sisters. This past weekend I planned a potluck picnic at Kelly Drive. It seemed like the quintessential outdoor weekend activity, perfect for the end of the summer. The perfection was dampened when Mother Nature got in the way and decided to […]
After an extremely long weekend at Firefly Music Festival, I was excited to get back into my kitchen and have a real home-cooked meal. Don’t get me wrong; the food at the festival was delicious. I noshed on nachos, wolfed down chicken and waffles, and enjoyed some refreshing ice cream. Not only was the food […]
Unless I have a specific recipe or category of food in mind to cook, I’ll just buy a bunch of random things that appeal to me when I go grocery shopping. The produce might just look, smell or feel perfect to eat. The sauces might just sound interesting to taste. Sometimes I’m guilty of judging […]
Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia: What comes to your mind first when you hear the word chia? I bet you’re thinking of the grassy decorative pet-plant that was the star of those catchy infomercials over the past couple decades. What most people don’t know is that the same seeds that sprout fuzzy green hair for Chia Pets are also […]
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 […]
