If College Majors Were Food Network Stars

In case the whole culinary thing doesn't work out.

Business Insider

While we are all grateful that the stars on Food Network have chosen the careers they are in, it is fun to wonder what they might've done if they had picked a different path than food.

If these culinary superstars weren't so culinary, what would they have majored in?

Business: Bobby Flay

He's smart. He's charming. He's a businessman. Bobby has a smooth way of talking and a way with business. A restaurant owner and famous chef, he knows how to use his brand.

International Studies: Giada De Laurentiis

Giada was born in Italy and grew up going back. Her food has that Mediterranean flair and she celebrates the culture. She also studied in France. This world-traveler wants to learn more about different countries and how they all can interact.

Science: Alton Brown

Face it. This guy is a mad scientist in and outside the kitchen. Alton loves to experiment and create new ways of doing things or using tools. He is a bit crazy (in a good way), but his intelligence is what distinguishes him from the rest.

Journalism: Guy Fieri

It is Guy's job to ask people questions. So why not make a career out of it? On his show, he doesn't do much cooking. Interviewing other people is the main part of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. Guy is a people-person who gets the information while also complimenting and having fun.

Communications: Rachael Ray

She's loud and proud. She coins her own terms (EVOO-Extra Virgin Olive Oil). She is great in front of people and is constantly communicating. Creativity, passion and skill come together in this major for Rachael.

Interior Design: Ina Garten

Just look at her house. This Hamptons-living social butterfly lives and breathes fancy and expensive taste--in her food and her home. With her eye, Ina knows what looks good and how to make things seem fancier than they might be.

Animal Sciences/Veterinary Studies: Ree Drummond

Can you say cowgirl? Red lives on a farm! She's already used to the smell of animals and how to treat them. Learning more about those skills would help her get into vet school.

Fashion: Geoffrey Zakarian

This stylish guy always looks good. From his sweet glasses frames to all the cool outfits, GZ brings flair to Food Network through his fashion sense. Being able to utilize those skills for others is his next goal.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

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.
