Pinterest Movie Night: Harry Potter Edition

Snacks worthy of the Hogwarts Great Hall.

With Freeform doing one of it's many Harry Potter Marathon's for the year, I thought a themed snack would go great with this marathon. Now there is a whole cookbook dedicated to the food of Harry Potter but why make one big meal, when you could just make one snack per Hogwarts school year in the films. Here are the snacks I found that can be good representatives of Harry's school years at Hogwarts.

First Year: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Sorting Hat Cookies

Figure out what house you are meant to be in just like Harry!

Year 2: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Mandrake Pudding Pots

A yummy and tasty treat that you don't have to wear earmuffs for while eating it.

Year 3: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

The Classic Butterbeer

Now that most of the characters are allowed to go to Hogsmeade and enjoy everyone's favorite drink why don't you have some as well.

A recipe for: boozy ButterBeer, cold ButterBeer, and warm Butterbeer

Year 4: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

An "Ice Cream" Goblet of Fire

Wow all of your friends, be they from Durmstrang or Beauxbatons, with this magical fire trick.

Year 5: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Weasley Wizard's Wheezes Fever Fudge

It won't give you symptoms to cut school but it is delicious!

Year 6: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

Felix Felicis

Warning may not cause luckiness.

Year 7: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

"I open at the close" Golden Snitch Cheese Balls

It won't contain a resurrection stone but it sure is yummy!

Sorry Not Sorry, My Parents Paid For My Coachella Trip

No haters are going to bring me down.

This piece is intended to be a satire of an experience at Coachella.

With Coachella officially over, lives can go back to normal and we can all relive Beyonce’s performance online for years to come. Or, if you were like me and actually there, you can replay the experience in your mind for the rest of your life, holding dear to the memories of an epic weekend and a cultural experience like no other on the planet.

And I want to be clear about the Beyonce show: it really was that good.

But with any big event beloved by many, there will always be the haters on the other side. The #nochella’s, the haters of all things ‘Chella fashion. And let me just say this, the flower headbands aren’t cultural appropriation, they’re simply items of clothing used to express the stylistic tendency of a fashion-forward event.

Because yes, the music, and sure, the art, but so much of what Coachella is, really, is about the fashion and what you and your friends are wearing. It's supposed to be fun, not political! Anyway, back to the main point of this.

One of the biggest things people love to hate on about Coachella is the fact that many of the attendees have their tickets bought for them by their parents.

Sorry? It’s not my fault that my parents have enough money to buy their daughter and her friends the gift of going to one of the most amazing melting pots of all things weird and beautiful. It’s not my fault about your life, and it’s none of your business about mine.

All my life, I’ve dealt with people commenting on me, mostly liking, but there are always a few that seem upset about the way I live my life.

One time, I was riding my dolphin out in Turks and Cacaos, (“riding” is the act of holding onto their fin as they swim and you sort of glide next to them. It’s a beautiful, transformative experience between human and animal and I really think, when I looked in my dolphin’s eye, that we made a connection that will last forever) and someone I knew threw shade my way for getting to do it.

Don’t make me be the bad guy.

I felt shame for years after my 16th birthday, where my parents got me an Escalade. People at school made fun of me (especially after I drove into a ditch...oops!) and said I didn’t deserve the things I got in life.

I can think of a lot of people who probably don't deserve the things in life that they get, but you don't hear me hating on them (that's why we vote, people). Well, I’m sick of being made to feel guilty about the luxuries I’m given, because they’ve made me who I am, and I love me.

I’m a good person.

I’m not going to let the Coachella haters bring me down anymore. Did my parents buy my ticket and VIP housing? Yes. Am I sorry about that? Absolutely not.

Sorry, not sorry!

Restaurants That Make Ditching Dairy SO Easy

Not eating dairy doesn’t have to be stressful or difficult. Here is a list to make your life easier and stomach happier! #DAIRYFREEdom

Whether you’re lactose intolerant, have a dairy allergy, or just want to eat fewer dairy products--- ditching dairy doesn’t have to be stressful or difficult. Not being able to eat a certain food or food group can be very isolating and even embarrassing when you’re out with friends or at a restaurant (especially in college when you’re missing out on mom cooking for you!) It’s frustrating when you can’t find anything that you can eat, but I’m here for you and know this struggle all too well!!! I’ve been without dairy for numerous years now and have learned how and where it can be really hassle-free. Here are a few popular restaurants that offer STELLAR df options! #DAIRYFREEdom


1. Zoe’s Kitchen:

Zoe’s is a longtime favorite of mine and SUCH an easy place to get yummy, fresh food.
-Classic Hummus

-Chicken & Orzo Soup

-Mediterranean Lentil Soup

-Greek Salad & Live Med Salad WITHOUT FETA

-Chicken Salad & Fruit Plate

-Chicken Salad Sandwich


-Sides: Potato Salad, Rice, Roasted Vegetables

-Mediterranean Chicken Entree

-Any of the Bowls MINUS feta and tzatziki

2. Mellow Mushroom:

MM has the BEST dairy free pizza!!! They use a brand called Follow Your Heart cheese and it is pretty close to the real thing. Just ask for the regular crust with no butter or parmesan cheese on top, and order the dairy-free cheese option! THE BEST.

The hummus appetizer and pretzel bites are also dairy free, and you can make your own salad too!

3. Taco Bell:

This one is TOO EASY. If you ask for ANYTHING that usually has cheese or sour cream “Fresco Style,” they don’t add the cheese or SC to it, and instead, add PICO DE GALLO! (for example Fresco Bean Burrito, Fresco Crunchwrap, etc.) Oh… and the cinnamon twists are dairy free too!

4. Chick-fil-A:

Unfortunately (this is a sad one), the fried chicken is put in a milk wash before they fry it. However, all of the GRILLED chicken and the heavenly waffle FRIES are df! You can also get the egg white grill breakfast sandwich without cheese and you are good to go on the hashbrowns as well! #HealthIsWealth

5. Chipotle:

GREAT NEWS! Everything at Chipotle, minus our obvious offenders, cheese/sour cream/queso, is dairy free!

6. Newk’s Eatery:

I’ve been recently obsessed with Newk’s because of these sandwiches! There are more options than just these, but these are what I’ve had and enjoyed!

-Turkey breast sandwich or turkey avocado sandwich with NO Swiss cheese

-Greek salad with chicken, NO feta (greek dressing is DF)

7. Dunkin Donuts:

If you’re dairy free, you may know that the dairy-free options at Starbucks are not the best. The coconut milk is mehhh, soy milk is iffy, and the almond milk is just gross (IMO). BUT, Dunkin’ Donuts serves my FAVORITE brand of dairy-free milk, Almond Breeze. I’m in LOVE with an iced coffee with almond milk from DD!

(not necessarily food related but wanted to share ;) )

I hope this was helpful! Did I miss anything that you LOVE?!?
