quick bread

Now that you’ve nailed your class schedule, (after dropping that boring 8 a.m. and picking up a much easier afternoon gen ed) you probably feel pretty good about yourself. Everything seems to be under control…except for your eating schedule. It’s hard to plan your meals when you have homework to do, club meetings to go to, and frat parties to attend.

These snacks can be made …

Recipe Round Up: Apples

apples

Remember back in the day when you would bring an apple to your teacher as a gift? Neither do I. Maybe I just watched too many episodes of Wonder Years. Those were the days, though. When you could give a teacher an apple and she wouldn’t be worried about whether it was organically grown or genetically modified. Or whether it was locally grown or harvested on the other side of the world. When she didn’t question your motivation, and thought, “Oh, what a nice apple.”

SKC has left summer behind and embraced the fall fruit. We pulled together some …

Does anybody know what we actually celebrate on Labor Day? No school? No work? Picnics? If you’re a blind sheep like I am and obediently follow the herd to the next picnic or party regardless of what is being celebrated, you probably didn’t know that Peter J. McGuire, co-founder of the American Federation of Labor, was its creator. He stated that the holiday was created to honor those “who from rude nature have delved and carved all the grandeur we behold.” I’m not sure I fit into that category…but I plan on celebrating it anyway.

As for how to celebrate it, …

Quick Breakfast

No matter how many times you hit the snooze button, there’s no escaping it: you’re gonna have to start waking up before 11 a.m. If you’re not a senior or an athlete, you probably haven’t scored the ultimate schedule, where your first class doesn’t start til afternoon.

Recipe Round Up: Cooking with Julia

Meat Stew

In case you haven’t heard, Julia Child’s 100th birthday was this week. No other chef has been quoted, impersonated, and looked up to like Julia Child. She’s most famous for bringing French cuisine to American homes through her television show and her premier cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking. While these recipes aren’t straight from her cookbook, they would definitely have her blessing. Bon appetit!
