10 Fall Treats To Eat That Are Not A Pumpkin Spice Latte

There's more to life than pumpkin spice


If you're like me and are totally adverse to everything pumpkin spice, you'll know how annoying it is to see people get hung up on one thing in the fall. NEWS FLASH: There's more to fall than pumpkin spice such as...

1. Apple Cider Donuts...

An apple cider donut is the HOLY GRAIL of fall foods. As soon as the first day of fall hits, you better believe I'm driving to my local farm and picking up a dozen of these bad boys.

2. ...Apple Cider in General...

Also another yummy apple treat and a staple of a good fall bonfire

3. ...Or just a straight-up apple

Just bypass the donut and the cider all together and go apple picking! This is a timeless activity to do with friends or your bae, just find an orchard and go nuts!

4. Pumpkin Pie

This is my favorite type of pie to eat in the fall. And it's so easy to make! Check out a recipe here: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/nancy-fuller/from-scratch-pumpkin-pie-2251073

5. Squash

My roommate said this one, which I only halfway endorse. However, a good bowl of my mom's butternut squash soup on a cold fall evening is one of the best things on the planet.

6. Pumpkin Seeds

These crunchy things are fantastic as an afternoon snack...or really any time of the day you want to eat them, they're perfect.

7. Pumpkin Bread/Muffins

Another one of my favorite fall baked goods that is super easy to make and yummy to boot! Find a recipe here: https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/7958/pumpkin-chocolate-chip-muffins/

8. The entire Thanksgiving dinner

Asking around, it seemed like the best fall food was the entirety of Thanksgiving dinner. Turkey, cranberry sauce, gravy, mashed potatoes, warm rolls salad, green beans, I could go on and on. Point is, Thanksgiving is fantastic and Thanksgiving leftovers are even better.

9. Mac and Cheese

Mac and cheese is acceptable any time of year. Enough said.

10. Sweet potatoes 

Now before you cringe, let me tell you that roasted sweet potatoes with cinnamon, honey, and a touch of rosemary are possibly one of the best things that I've ever eaten. Try them, I promise that you won't regret it.

Remember, you don't have to settle for a PSL this fall season! Break the basic mold and try something new!

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
