Most parents don't expect their college child to contribute to the Thanksgiving meal. Impress your friends and family this Thanksgiving with these easy and delicious recipes.

6 Easy Recipes To Bring Home For Thanksgiving

If this is your first Thanksgiving dish, make your family one of these recipes this Thanksgiving!

Angel Food Cranberry Cake

For one of the easiest, no-bake desserts this Thanksgiving try this recipe. With only nine ingredients and essentially the only action being stirring, the prep time is a short 30 minutes, followed by overnight refrigeration. This is a delicious, last-minute recipe that is sure to stand out at Thanksgiving dinner.

Apple Pecan Salad with Maple Dressing

Staying healthy over Thanksgiving break is not an easy task. This salad recipe is a tasty way to stay on track. The salad is a quick fix and can be stored easily. The maple vinaigrette is made by shaking the ingredients together and should be stored separately. This recipe can be changed to your preferences by removing the cranberries, onions, and/or bacon. Opting out of adding bacon cuts half the time of salad prep and I personally think it tastes better meat-free.

Turkey Mac N' Cheese

Thanksgiving turkey just got a whole lot better. This Mac N' Cheese bake is almost easier than Kraft Mac and Cheese. All it takes is stirring 7 ingredients together and baking for an hour. Because of the time consumption, this is the perfect dish to make while studying for a test or finishing an assignment before leaving campus. Plus, nothing is better than smelling a Thanksgiving meal being cooked; a rare college pleasure.

Stuffed Brussel Sprouts

Stuffing automatically seems to make anything better, brussel sprouts being no exception. This bite-size recipe makes brussel sprouts, a generally unliked vegetable, an irresistible snack full of flavor. Being mess free, it is the perfect appetizer for big family gatherings.

Cheddar Garlic Mashed Potatoes 

You may not need much cooking skill for this recipe, but you sure do need a strong arm. This minimal ingredient recipe is an easy last-minute side dish. This dish delivers the traditional Thanksgiving potatoe side, with a twist of cheese and garlic to add an exciting flavor.

Pumpkin and Bacon Dip 

Dip isn't reserved for football tailgates this fall. This simple recipe takes less time to make than it does to eat. This unique dip is sure to be unique from anything else being prepared and will be popular with adventurous eaters. Pair it with crackers or warm bread for a traditional taste, or pair it with cinnamon toast for a fall burst in your mouth.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
