Step away from the pumpkin spice latte.

4 Fall Foods From Around NOLA That You Need In Your Life Now
District: Donuts. Sliders. Brew.

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, it seems that no other time of year has as many seasonal foods associated with it as fall. And while there's definitely something comforting about a traditional autumn meal just the way your grandma always cooked it, we live in the age of the foodie, where culinary innovation is an Instagram-worthy part of our culture. More than ever before, restaurants are testing the boundaries of fall cuisine to create unique new dishes that still preserve that same comforting essence of the season; here are the ones you shouldn't miss in New Orleans.

1. Drip Affogato Bar - Pumpkin Spice Affogato

Bored with the basic pumpkin spice latte? Drip Affogato Bar has you covered. This popular new shop on Carondelet brings together two of life's greatest joys: coffee and ice cream. Offering an array of pairings or a build-your-own option, Drip uses Creole Creamery ice cream to create caffeinated treats that dreams are made of. This seasonal offering takes the PSL to the next level, but hurry - it's only available until November 15th!

2. Bakery Bar - Sweet Potato Pie Doberge Brûlée

Another current hotspot, Bakery Bar is home to Debbie Does Doberge, purveyor of the uniquely New Orleanian doberge dessert. With options ranging from personal-sized "Dobites" and "Salty Balls" to full-sized layer cakes by the slice, these sweets come in a variety of flavors, including several delicious fall specials. While a PSL flavor is on the menu, those who aren't pumpkin fans will be delighted to find this sweet potato alternative.

3. Pizza Domenica - Roasted Pumpkin and Burrata

A pumpkin special at a pizza place? While that may sound like a stretch, you can always trust the Besh Restaurants to create dining masterpieces, and Pizza Domenica's special fall menu is no exception. Adding a savory option to the fall food scene, this dish makes use of a pumpkin seed pesto and spicebrush vinegar for a sophisticated experience you won't find anywhere else.

4. District: Donuts. Sliders. Brew. - Pecan Pie Donut

The folks at District are always mixing things up and experimenting with bold new ideas, and they've truly outdone themselves with this year's fall menu. There's something for everyone, with drinks like fresh-squeezed satsuma juice and hot apple cider, savory breakfasts like a chorizo and sweet potato taco on a house-made pumpkin spice tortilla, and donuts like pumpkin cheesecake, vanilla apple maple, and rum caramel blondie. Even among so extensive a selection, this gorgeous pecan pie donut is a standout that puts a modern spin on a classic Thanksgiving staple.

And the best news? These four picks barely scratch the surface of all the glorious fall foods NOLA has to offer. So get out and make the most of this holiday season by feasting in true Big Easy fashion.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
