The term vegan is becoming more well-known, but there are still a lot of people who are not familiar with it. If you aren't one of them, in a nutshell, vegan means you don't eat anything that comes from an animal including; meat, dairy, and eggs. That's it.

But it is popular opinion that vegans eat nothing but leaves and carrot sticks for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I am here to tell you one word my friends, one word and one word only....SIKE. Not the case.

I have been vegan for almost six years and would not have survived if I did not get to eat varied foods, scrumdidlyumptious meals and decadent desserts. I have also cooked many meals for my carnivorous family which they have loved. So if you are tempted to go vegan, you should try, because it's not as scary as it sounds. But if you just want to try something different, and healthier, these delicious, easy recipes are the perfect thing for you!

Shepherds Pie

This dish brings me back to my middle school days, when our Irish cafeteria lady would prepare this special dish for us at lunch time to absolute per-fec-tion. The only thing is that this traditional Irish dish often contains is dairy products, a lot of fat, and meat. Here, however, is a much healthier vegan option.

Fettuccine Alfredo

If you think the word "creamy" has left your food vocabulary just because you don't have dairy, then I have good news. This vegan fettuccine alfredo recipe has the same creamy-ness you crave, without any dairy whatsoever.

Black Bean Burgers

This recipe is my personal favorite because you can squirt some spicy sriracha on the top of your burger and be in paradise. To be extra healthy you can substitute the white burger bun for something whole grain.

Vegan Enchiladas

I have a huge weak spot for Mexican food, or anything spicy, and this recipe is absolutely delicious! It's perfect comfort food!

"Nice Cream" Ice Cream

I could not live without chocolate, but even more so, I could even not function without ice cream. Here is a "nicer" and healthier alternative to dairy to cool down and finish off your delicious vegan meal.

There are so many vegan recipes to choose from, and they are all delicious, so give it a shot and try some of these! You will not be disappointed.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
