IMG_1280

I’ve never been one to jump on the hype bandwagon. I’ve yet to see Avatar, haven’t read a word of the Hunger Games (though I have watched my friends’ beanie baby version), and it took ages to get me on twitter. But it’s different when it comes to food. I’ll hunt down the best chocolate chip cookies, banh mi sandwich, or pork bun until the cows come home.

o when I read about the “amusement park of food and drink” coming to Brooklyn’s Prospect Park in May, I literally jumped for the opportunity. There was no escaping the …

You’re Invited: a Medieval Thanksgiving Leftover Party

Thanksgiving is wonderful; the spirit, the family, and of course, the food.

So much food!

At my house, Thanksgiving is not a holiday that my family has always celebrated. Having come from France, where there is no such thing as Thanksgiving, we have adopted the holiday as our own, especially the delicious dishes. However, something that we have not yet mastered is the amount of food we need to make to feed eight, JUST eight, people. For some reason, my mother, grandmother, and I always make food for EIGHTY! Inevitably, we end up eating leftovers for days.

“Thanksmas”: How My Thanksgiving and Christmas Merged

I have always had a very singular family living arrangement. From my front window, I can see each of the houses of my grandma, my aunt and her husband and my three cousins, my uncle, and my cousin with her husband and two daughters. With such close proximity to my family, seeing them is an easy as taking a 30-second walk down the street. Yet, despite our closeness, getting everyone together is quite the challenge.

When I was younger, Thanksgiving represented one of the few times of the year when everyone on the street, plus the rest of the extended …

Barnard College is all about tradition. Every year, a few college-wide events take over campus to honor Barnard’s history, its students and more with events ranging from Founder’s Day, which commemorates Barnard’s birthday, Midnight Breakfast, a middle-of-the-night feast at which deans, faculty and staff serve breakfast to students the night before final exams begin, and Spirit Day, a day-long party celebrating students’ school spirit.

SKC Abroad: Celebrating Thanksgiving Abroad

Gourds

Sometimes, I wish I were Italian.

I wish I were one of those long-haired, olive-skinned women, strutting the cobblestones of Rome in sky-high stilettos, never batting an eyelash. I wish that I could toss my head back and fire off some rapid-fire Italian, and a bottle of wine would appear. I wish that I could hop on the back of a Vespa and ride off into the Roman sunset, crossing the Tiber with my arms around a hunky man named Alessandro.

Most unfortunately, my complexion is pale, my accent is obvious, and I’m still waiting for my Alessandro. I’ve had …
