Coffee: the Elixir of Life

Today, I’m going to talk about coffee. It might be because it’s finals week, that time of year when EVERYONE consumes excessive amounts of caffeine via this black, liquid gold, myself included. It might be because I’ve started to really get into coffee; making sure I’m trying good coffee and really tasting it. Trying to … Continue reading

Needing Bread

I think it’s about time I do a bread post. Considering how much I need/knead bread (harhar), I’m surprised I haven’t done written about a yeast-leavened carbohydrate yet. Well, better late than never they say. This is the recipe, and these are the ingredients:

Tour de Lini

Pasta, pasta, pasta. If you love food, you love pasta. Heck, if you even eat food, chances are you probably like pasta. When we think of pasta, we tend to think of the Italian variety; spaghetti being the most common, followed by linguini, farafalle, fusilli, lasagna, penne, and the more humble elbow. The authors of … Continue reading

A Birthday Rampage!

It cannot be denied. The air is warmer. The grass is greener. The birds are louder. It’s rainier. This can only mean that… Spring has sprung. Ah…. Although the official growing season (or even planting season for that matter) hasn’t begun yet, there’s wild edible greenery that’s begun to pop up in our area. Seeing this, … Continue reading

Jeons of Every Kind

Hi all. I have a video for you today. I’m switching things up. Since the arrival of my new camera, I’ve been playing around with the video function, and during spring break I learned a little bit about how to use Adobe Premiere Pro. So make videos I did. Most of my short clips were … Continue reading

Crunch Time

Spring break starts in 3 days. Ah. AHHH. Life-wise, this means that I’ll be done with my midterms in 2 days, spring break will start in 3 days, and I’ll be home in 4 days. So close, but so far… CoOp-wise, this means we only have 4.5 hours of work this week. Which means I … Continue reading

The Pineapple Debacle

Hello all. I apologize for the lack of posts last week. This blog was experiencing some technical difficulties…  the photos that I took for my last dinner cook didn’t transfer to my computer. So I have a little catching up to do before spring break. It’s ok. It’ll work out in the end. So you … Continue reading

Spaghetti is Romantic…?

Ah. Valentine’s Day. A day (ideally) filled with hearts, love, and chocolate. Well guys, at the CoOp, V-Day is filled with spaghetti sauce, breadsticks, and eggplants. You see, one of the girls who live in the CoOp is OBSESSED with all things Disney. And a few days before this meal, she found out that she … Continue reading

Eastern European Food.. What is it, really?

My friends, last dinner cook I encountered a dilemma that I’d never encountered before. According to the meal plan and the Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant cookbook, I was supposed to cook Eastern European food; a cuisine I am COMPLETELY unfamiliar with. What is Eastern European food anyways? Where’s Eastern Europe? Like, Eastern Eurasia? Or anywhere … Continue reading

Gnocci? Nyoghee?

A little belated, but here is Kitchen Culture blog #2. My dinner-cook this week was on Tuesday, so yes, I am running 6 days behind. But that’s ok, because I think I’m still recovering from this dinner-cook. I am actually not exaggerating when I say that this night’s dinner was actually the hardest, most intense … Continue reading

In the Past…
