Trader Joe's has earned its title as one of the most popular grocery stores in America. Many of their products have become cult-favorites with their customers. Here are some of my favorite items that I always end up repurchasing!

1. Hold the Cone!


Price- $2.99

It takes a lot of willpower not to finish these in one sitting. These mini cones contain vanilla ice cream and have a chocolate coating on top. Each cone has around 87 calories, so these are a great way to treat yourself without overindulging. The last few bites are my favorite because the crunch at the end of the cone is the most delectable.

2. Half-Baked Bread


Price- $1.99

A fellow foodie and friend suggested trying the half-baked bread. I was a little skeptical at first because I thought it was nothing special and wouldn't impress me. Long story short: I was wrong. Pop it in the oven for 10-12 minutes at 425 degrees, and it'll taste like fresh bread from a boulangerie. I could write a five-page essay about how much I love this bread and every way you can use it. From sandwiches to pasta, the possibilities are endless.

3. Everything but the Bagel Seasoned Smoked Salmon


Price- $5.49

As a typical New Yorker, my usual breakfast order consists of bacon, egg, and cheese on a roll. However, my new go-to is cream cheese, smoked salmon, and capers on an everything bagel. I am also a fan of the Everything But The Bagel Seasoning, so it was no brainer to try the smoked salmon. Every bite is mouthwatering and makes me want more, and I usually try to limit myself to one bagel per week.

4. Organic Vodka Sauce


Price- $3.00

Believe it or not, the vodka sauce was the first item from Trader Joe's that I have ever tried. I was pleased with the sauce, and it became my new favorite when I don't want to put much effort into cooking. I would suggest pairing this sauce with either penne or spaghetti and adding lots of parmesan cheese. It doesn't also hurt to include the half-baked bread that I previously mentioned. You can save the mason jar that the sauce comes in and use it for whatever you want (I use mine for iced coffee)!

5. Breaded Mozzarella Cheese Sticks


Price- $3.99

If you've read some of my other articles before, you would know that I am a big fan of anything cheese related! These mozzarella cheese sticks are no exception. They taste like something you'd eat at a restaurant and nothing like the generic ones served at schools. The breading is delicious and complements the cheese very well. If you put these mozzarella cheese sticks in the air fryer, you'll have a tasty snack in between classes or whenever you feel like eating them.

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.
