  • Gourmet Ramen: Asian Sesame Stirfry

    Tonight we're having Ramen. This shouldn't be too hard; all your dorm mattresses are probably lined to the brim with those Maruchan pouches. But the time has come to move on from those foil packets, its time to roll up your sleeves just a little bit, and toss the salty seasoning.

  • Cheddar Chicken Panini

    It's winter ( kind of ) so I know you're probably staying in-dorms, rather than walking around in the coldish weather scrounging for food. You're sitting there, cold, hungry, and miserable, thinking… "Can anybody, anyone at all, guide me through the desolate world of Homemade Meals?!?!?!" Relax, I brought you a sandwich. Now calm down.

  • Post-Thanksgiving recipe: Fancy(ish) Ramen

    I love Thanksgiving. This, however, clearly is not a Thanksgiving recipe. This is more of a "returning to your apartment post-family holiday feast to find nothing in your cabinets" type of dish.

  • Lucky Charms Treats

    Bless me Father for I have sinned. I have made a double-marshmallow monstrosity that would make any glutton squeal with joy.

  • Eggs in a Hole

    I love the term "eggs-in-a-hole." So simple and to the point. And sort of cutesy. In fact, I think it may be grounds for a childrens' book. Hm, my story would go a little like this.

  • Butternut Squash Mac n' Cheese

    Macaroni and cheese is a sacred food group for us collegians. I don't know about you, but I'm pretty picky about my dairy elbows. And my physical elbows, too. Some say licking your own elbow is impossible. But you know what that also spells? I-M P-O-S-S-I-B-L-E, baby! But that's a different story for a different time. Back to the mac.

  • Salsa Beans

    Hey, DePaulians! You're almost ready to begin a new quarter. You know what this means? Momma ain't buying you steak no more.

  • Cheapskate Cheese Plate

    I am all about cheese. It has so many variations—sharp, mild, creamy, hard, tangy, that it's difficult to tire of this type of dairy. But it can also get expensive. That's why I came up with the student budget-friendly Cheapskate Cheese Plate.

  • Smoked Sausage Skewers for One

  • Spaghetti Carbonara

    Spaghetti Carbonara for One

    As an homage to St. Vincent de Paul, I wanted to find a simple, quick, college-kid friendly recipe representative of his time in Rome. It's the least I can do as a newly-minted DePaul alum.
