5 Things To Bake Over Thanksgiving

5 Things To Bake Over Thanksgiving

In a baking mood? Check out these treats to dig into over break!

It's the midst of Fall. The leaves are changing, the cold air is blowing, and most importantly...Thanksgiving break is finally upon us! Students of all ages get to go home (hopefully) and snuggle up with their favorite blanket and enjoy not being at school for a week. The only thing better than sitting on the couch and catching up on your favorite show is stirring up some delicious treats to share (or not) with your family and friends! Here are 5 things that you should at least attempt to bake over break:

1. Pumpkin pie

Pumpkin Pie is a classic to whip up during the holiday season! Of course, if you're not a fan of pumpkin, just substitute the pumpkin with any flavor of your choosing. There's several to choose from: blueberry, apple, cranberry, pecan, or chocolate!


2. Kodiak Cakes "Dark Chocolate Chip" pancakes

This one is personally my favorite. Kodiak Cakes are a fairly healthy option for cooking up pancakes, waffles, or muffins. With 14 grams of protein per serving, they really pack a punch! You can add anything in from chocolate chips to blueberries or even chia seeds -- don't forget the whipped cream and syrup on top!


3. Fudge brownies

Fudge brownies are the perfect comfort food if you're a chocolate lover! Add in chunks of dark and milk chocolate to the batter for more fudge -- and for slutty brownies, add an Oreo layer, then add more batter on top! Nuts and sprinkles are good toppings for this treat.


4. Cinnamon maple sugar cookies

Cinnamon maple cookies are perfect for those cinnamon-spiced lovers out there. The maple taste in the dough gives this dessert more personality along with the quick setting cinnamon glaze that goes on top!


5. Fried apples

This tasty southern dish is great for those "in-a-hurry" days. It can be prepared and cooked in under 30 minutes! The cinnamon-brown sugar glaze on top of the soft cooked apples are a tasty treat for Thanksgiving break.

8 Reasons Girls Who Love Tequila Are Better

Because if she can handle tequila, she can handle you too.

There are all kinds of alcohol stereotypes out there but the one associated with tequila is probably the worst: tequila makes you crazy. But if there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that women who drink tequila are one-of-a-kind.

Whether it's loving or fighting, you'll never find anyone who does it better than a girl who just straight up loves tequila, and here are a few reasons why that is.

1. She's independent

A girl who drinks tequila is probably the same girl who has absolutely no problem telling it like it is. She knows what she wants and goes after it.

2. She doesn't care what you or anyone else thinks

Oh, you have a problem with me taking shots and having a good time? Well, get over it! Bartender, a shot with salt and a lime please!

3. Always dancing

Tequila is an 'upper' so instead of sitting at the bar doing nothing, let's dance! Let's get moving!

4. There is never a dull moment

Speaking of dancing, a girl who drinks tequila is always down for a good time. Whether it's going on an adventure or seeing who can take the most shots, a tequila girl is always down to party.

5. While everyone else is starting to get sleepy, she has all the energy

Like I said, tequila is an 'upper' so while the other girls at the bar are starting to feel groggy and sad, she's all over the place having fun and partying on the dancefloor.

6. She's stronger than the girl crying over a vodka cranberry at the bar.

Sad over a breakup? Don't go for the vodka... Tequila will make you feel better in no time! Plus you can challenge the hot guys at the bar to a shot taking contest.

7. Tequila is healthy for you

Tequila is a probiotic, so some tequila a day keeps the doctor away. Yay for shots!

8. She can hold her own when it comes to alcohol

Any girl who can shoot some shots at the bar all day and night can handle alcohol, which means she can handle herself too. You won't have to deal with her constant breakdowns and mood swings because she will be too busy ordering more shots.

10 Reasons To Start Vaping In 2019 If You Haven't Yet

"It's safer than cigarettes"


Vaping is the rage these days among adolescents and college students. Here are some great reasons to start!

1. It's what all the cool kids do


I wish that I could be like the cool kids

2. It damages your lungs


It's not like you need these to breathe or anything

3. It pollutes the air


Let's pollute the air even more!

4. Nicotine addiction

Just the thing I want to be addicted to

5. "Delicious" flavors


Would you prefer mango flavor or the cancer flavor?

6. The Juul looks like a USB


Your parents won't suspect a thing

7. Inhale metals like nickel and lead


Yummmmmm. Lead poisoning isn't a thing.

8. More likely to get infections


9. You'll eventually want cigarettes


And you'll make your lungs worse

10. Lung and mouth cancer


Who doesn't want cancer

In case you couldn't tell, this was very sarcastic. If you want all of these things, then go ahead, start vaping. But you should know what you're getting yourself into and be prepared for the consequences.

If you already vape, I mean no disrespect and I'm not trying to hate on you, but you should seriously stop. Whatever you think is a good reason for vaping really is not a good enough reason to damage your body.

Stop vaping. And if you don't vape, don't start. Just don't.
