Marshmallow Madness: Honeyed Grapefruit Marshmallow

Graperfruit Marshmallow1

Of course the Marshmallow Madness cookbook came to me when I was training for a boxing tournament and had to maintain weight. The cookbook itself was inviting, with its foam cover, cute fonts, and girly colors. I devoured the colorful photos and drooled over the creative recipes. I don’t know what is more unbelievable, the fact that a girl like me boxes or the fact that I didn’t gain five pounds from all the marshmallow experimenting.

Quirk Books, publishers of Marshmallow Madness by Shauna Server, came up with the sweet idea to launch a Marsh Madness campaign. For those …

Review and Giveaway: The Art of Baking Bread


There is truly nothing like a slice of freshly baked bread. And these days, homemade ricotta and Bolognese are screaming for a crunchy, chewy piece of bread to sop up the from-scratch goodness. Store-bought sandwich bread just doesn’t cut it. Enter: Matt Pellegrini’s The Art of Baking Bread: What you Really Need to Know to Make Great Bread.

When compared to other bread books I’ve read, Pellegrini’s language and vocabulary is clear and relatively concise—perfect for the novice bread maker. The step by step photographs are also essential for understanding tasks and techniques that can be extremely difficult to convey …


Giveaway: Dormify Sorority Pillow For Rush Season


Giveaway Closed: 2/16/12

Second semester is underway, which for some not only means shopping for new classes and textbooks, but new friends too. That’s right ladies, it’s rush season!!

We don’t talk a lot about Greek life here at SKC, though our acronym could qualify us as some sort of co-ed food frat of our own. But there’s no denying that rush season plays a huge role in college life, and food certainly comes into play when you’re trying to make a good first impression. Think healthy finger foods, strategic snacking, and the avoidance of bad breath at all …

Here’s what Kristen had to say: I made red sauce and left it simmering on too high of a heat without a cover… needless to say it boiled over and splattered all over the nearby walls. Awful mess.
