Why not switch it up this year by covering your matzo in chocolate?
Hello again, aspiring vegans! Spring has sprung! Sort of. Syracuse is a few weeks behind the rest of the country, but as we roll into April the temperature will rise to a sweltering 50 degrees (or we'll get another freak snowstorm - either way).
According to my Facebook newsfeed, this week is Passover and this coming weekend is Easter. And what are holidays without a little something to nosh on? Don’t worry though, we’ll definitely keep the bunnies and chicks in dark chocolate form.
Recover from your St. Patrick's Day festivities with this healthy, refreshing drink
Hello aspiring vegans! Spring break is over and I am back in Syracuse ready to return to your regularly scheduled, beef-free blogging. If you’re reading this that means you managed to survive spring break. I spent mine traveling to the Big Easy and what is traveling without trying the local cuisine? My taste buds were privy to some good ol’ southern cooking, as I sampled locally-brewed beers and Creole treats up and down the Mississippi River. For many of you, celebrating St.
Don't feel like feasting on gas station food this Spring Break? We've got you covered.
All right, aspiring vegans, Spring Break is pretty much here! I’m sure you’ve all got some exciting agendas penned for your one week free of tests and homework. Personally, I’ll be adventuring between Cuse and the Gulf, and facing a couple of daunting eight hour driving days with only gas station food to tide me over. If you’re anything like me, combining a healthy, animal-free lifestyle, a severe case of wanderlust and a tight wallet means you may have to get creative with your snackage. Finding vegan fare at gas stations can be difficult.
One more week until Spring Break! Start treating yourself early by stopping by one of these spots for a tasty meal
February may be the shortest month of the year but it certainly felt like it dragged on. Every day seemed like a constant reminder that Spring Break was just out of reach, midterms were right around the corner, and the warm weather was still nowhere to be found. Fortunately though, my February went out with a delicious bang, as a few warm meals snapped me out of my winter blues.
Thrill your taste buds with this traditional dish made in honor of China's Lantern Festival.
February 24, thousands of different animal-shaped lanterns will light the night sky in China, and the streets will transform into a sea of red light, lanterns, and laughter. It’s the 15th day of the lunar calendar and the end of Chinese New Year celebration: the Lantern Festival.
Banish some misconceptions about veganism -- and then try this delicious lentils and rice recipe for less than it costs to buy a pack of gum.
When I first announced to my family members that I wanted to adopt a vegan lifestyle, they shot me incredulous stares. “Why would you ever want to do that?” they asked, totally dumbfounded.
The decision to “go vegan” often meets many challenges, and not just the physical ones that come with completely overhauling one’s diet. Finding support for my new lifestyle has proven difficult. Many carnivores take it as a personal offense when I tell them that I won’t eat meat or any other animal byproduct. As my one friend eloquently put it: “But… bacon!”
Treat yourself to something sweet, even if you're single.
Although there are several things to love about Valentine's Day (so much pink! my birthday falls the day after!) there is one thing that I love the most about it: It's a day when it's completely socially acceptable to stuff your face with chocolate.
Curb your cravings with this incredibly simple snack
Oh, that fateful hour... It’s that time of night where, if I’m not already preparing to go to bed, I’m preparing something to eat. Usually, I'm pretty good about not munching after dinner, but if I’m still awake doing work,“ tindering,” or watching the Food Channel, I’ll convince myself that I need a snack. I'm sure I can't be alone in this.
"No, no," you tell yourself, "Water cannot quench these grumbly-tumbly needs. Only food can."
The new Marshall Street coffee joint educates about the origins of its products through a Skype session with a Honduras farmer
With Syracuse gone schizophrenic from all green to all white overnight, there’s no better way to cheer up a whitewashed morning than with a mug of fresh brew.
Friday morning, Café Kubal appeased the masses by offering freshly brewed Honduras coffee paired with a Skype call with its progenitor, coffee farmer Mario Tulio. That’s the benefit of buying local: have a cup and meet the source. (Added bonus: any student who submitted questions for the farmer through Kubal’s social media pages, stood a chance of winning a pour-over-coffee set and a T-shirt.)
