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 [...]

Last term I tabled with the Sierra Club in the Handschumacher Dining Center and rec center to encourage students to participate in Meatless Mondays. I’d like to explain why Meatless Mondays are an important step in furthering Drexel’s sustainability and how the argument for sustainable meat is not a valid solution. So why Meatless Mondays? [...]

One of the absolute worst things one can do to oneself is to go on a diet. Now I fully understand that being healthy is important, but to sacrifice food for that goal is abhorrent. There is a small point of merit in that by starting a diet you may expose yourself to new foods [...]
Dear Granny and Eloise, After coming back to Drexel, I realized how badly I’ve been eating over break. All those holiday hams and desserts — who can resist the temptation? What do I do to get back on track and be my (semi) healthy self once more? Sincerely, Jenny Craig My dearie Jenny Craig, [...]
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 [...]

As a food critic, I pride myself on my experience. What I mean to say is that when I see an interesting restaurant, I inevitably find myself itching to try out its spread so that I can justify my inflated food critic ego. That’s why I’ve been so disappointed in myself every time I’ve [...]
Call me Alejandra, because Las Cazuelas has transported me from its location on the border of Northern Liberties and Olde Kensington to Puebla, Mexico, the hometown of chef Alfredo Aguilar. Although the small Mexican restaurant is inconspicuous in appearance, its food is anything but modest. The menu does not offer a considerable variety of choices [...]
I recently went to my hometown of Spring Grove, Pa. to visit my parents for the weekend. While there, my mother and I stopped at a small farmer’s market to pick up some fresh produce. When we arrived, the small store was packed! Now I had never been in this store before, but my mother, [...]
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 [...]

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, [...]
It’s pretty easy to identify a pub or tavern by its atmosphere, and New Deck Tavern is no exception.

For [...]
