Nothing says a delicious snack on the go quite like banana bread, muffins, and … zucchini? As weird as it sounds, adding zucchini to your typical muffin batter adds both nutrients and moisture to the bake. Its flavor is so mild, you can’t even taste it once it’s mixed in! To top it all off, who doesn’t like banana bread? Either as a quick breakfast, between-class snack, or late-night dessert, these tasty muffins are sure to satisfy even the pickiest veggie eater.
My trip to Rome was defined by taking in the world-famous ruins, eating more pasta than a human should in a year, and indulging in delicious cocktails and wine. Is my bank account completely done for? Yes. Would I do it all again in a heartbeat? Absolutely. If you’re looking for a slight taste of Italy, or Europe for that matter, give any of these drinks a shot this weekend.

To make the Courtside, you’ll need a highball glass—a tall, skinny glass. Glassware is crucial when making a cocktail. Yes, I’ve skipped out on serving my drinks in the right glasses a number of times—it’s tricky to have a full cocktail set when you’re a college student.

Depending on which cocktail you want to make, you’ll have to decide which glass fits the bill.
Every family has the recipe—the reliable dish that it can count on being served at least once a week and that it will never grow tired of, no matter how many times it’s made. For some, it’s spaghetti—for others, it’s Domino’s pizza. In my household, it’s my mom’s special pepper pasta.
For this recipe, I’m making a more unique version, but the best part of this age-old cocktail is that you can use whatever brand of gin and whatever brand of tonic water you want. Since this drink has such simple ingredients, I do recommend splurging on a nicer gin and a nicer tonic. Having good quality of both makes a difference, but at the end of the day, a G&T is a simple and delicious drink that is always a crowd pleaser.

I, like many college-aged women, have not purchased a bottle of dairy milk in my entire adult life. My cups of coffee are topped off solely with almond milk, oat milk, or on the rare occasion, soy milk. But, I have one exception to this rule: my raspberry scones.
As I grew more and more homesick, my saving grace came in the form of a visit to a friend’s house for our version of Christmas dinner in the middle of finals week. Lake-effect snow is unique to the Great Lakes region, but at that dinner, I returned to the cozy feeling I was so used to finding at home.
