Confessions Of A Picky Eater

Under no circumstances whatsoever will I eat anything that I've never tried before

Confessions Of A Picky Eater

At this point in my life, as a college student just nearly starting her quarter-life crisis, my future husband will just need to understand that he will be cooking his own meals. I used to think that I had a broad palate, but college has definitely taught me otherwise.

Having grown up with a brother that has never even tasted mac 'n cheese, I never though that I would find myself having similar problems. Growing up, we used to hide chicken in my brother's rice to show him that the taste wasn't as bad as he thought it would be. That tactic didn't go over very well. Now that I really think about it, I would most definitely disown any of my friends if they went as far as hiding an olive in my cheese pizza.

"Why aren't you eating anything?" "Nice plate." "Aren't you hungry?" You kind of get used to answering unwanted questions. You kind of get used to telling the waiter to leave the tomatoes, onions, mustard, and other mysterious sauces off the burger, but you will always ask for extra fries. You kind of get used to skipping a meal when the chef tries a new recipe. You kind of get used to eating nothing at a friend's house, even when their parents won't stop asking.

I've never out more than pepperoni on my cheese pizza. You will never find any sauce on my pasta or spaghetti. The only type of lettuce I'll ever eat is romaine. I won't eat the parts of foods that have touched other foods, unless they were touching on purpose. I don't understand the purpose of tuna. I refuse to put cream cheese on a bagel. Guacamole is disgusting. The only thing I like about Thanksgiving dinner is mashed potatoes and gravy. I will only ever get zero stars of spice for my pad thai.

There are countless advantages to having a chef in my own house now, especially when it comes to ice cream and homemade cookies, however she will never make grilled cheese sandwiches and quesadillas the same ways as my mom. It's always an added benefit whenever I go home because I get to look forward to home cooked meals with no fear of avoiding certain foods.

Maybe one day I'll try celery, but until that day, I'll just stick to plain pasta and butter on my bagels.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.

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.
