S'MAC: Mac and Cheese Heaven

S'MAC: Mac and Cheese Heaven

Looking for the best mac and cheese? Go to S'MAC.

Imagine this: it’s snowing in New York City and you just walked from Fifth Avenue to Sixth instead of heading down towards Fourth. The snow is really starting to come down now, pelting your glasses so much that you have to take them off to see. You’re trudging back up Twelfth Street, passing the Strand (which, sidenote: you should make sure you go back to) and then you finally see it — S’Mac.

S’Mac is a restaurant in Manhattan that specializes in macaroni and cheese.

And if that wasn’t enough, they have fancy mac and cheese.

My roommates and I may or may not have made the trek described above, but it was worth it. Here’s what we got and what we thought about it:

Nina - Mediterranean

Nina ordered a mac and cheese dish that placed emphasis on "goat cheese, sauteed spinach, kalamata olives, and roasted garlic."

She particularly thought "the ingredients made it interesting," which is why she liked it so much.

Hayley - Build Your Own, Gluten/Dairy Free

Hayley is the pescatarian, gluten and dairy free roommate. While she was not too excited to go to a place that serves a dish that is typically none of the above, she was happy to find out that they had options for all dietary needs! She ordered gluten-free and dairy-free mac and cheese with broccoli and tuna.

Soon Il - Four Cheese

Cheese, cheese, cheese, and more cheese! It included "cheddar, muenster, gruyere and a touch of pecorino."

Destiny - Napoletana

I went back to my hometown roots and chose a pizza style mac and cheese, complete with "fresh mozzarella, roasted tomatoes, roasted garlic, and fresh basil."

The garlic really added flavor to the dish, and the dish was fabulous. Only downside? I wish I could've eaten it forever.

10 Gifs You Can Relate To If You Are Always Hungry

For The Starving College Student

Literally no one understands your pain when you say you're hungry. You are craving every and any food in sight, and it is always at the wrong time: in class, during yoga or even at a funeral. Sometimes you may think a demon has possessed your stomach while trying to get creative in order to communicate with you. The hunger pangs are real even though you just ate a bag of chips, two tacos, a handful of Jolly Ranchers, a pizza lunch-able kit and a slice a cake less than ten minutes ago. Enjoy these gifs that I hope you can relate to, as these are the same exact feelings I am currently having while typing this in class.

1. When you whine to your friends about the endless pit that is your stomach:

2. When you are at a party and you camp out by the food table:

3. When you get home and don't know which snack to eat first so you eat all of them at once:

4. Your face when someone says they will bring over pizza:

5. Watching impatiently as someone else prepares a gourmet meal for you:

6. When you can feel your corrosive stomach acid dissolving your inner stomach wall lining:

7. When you eat too much salt and you become bloated:

8. When the solution to all of your woes is eating that slice of cake you have reserved for bad days:

9. When the waiter brings out the free bread and you can't wait for your actual dinner:

10. When you get creative when there's too much food to eat in too little time:

For The Love Of Color

Don't be blue, wear what makes you feel confident.

Lately, I have been seeing tweets that have been about a certain color of clothing and skin color. There's been a lot of talk about the color yellow and how white people are ruining the beauty of this color. It is a confusing concept to wrap my head around.

Of course, darker skin tones look phenomenal in yellow, but also they look amazing in any color they choose to wear. New colors trend every season. Prior to yellow, burgundy and olive green had the spotlight. Now yellow happens to be the spring and summer trend of 2018.

So, what if an Ecuadorian woman wears yellow and has very light skin? Is it okay if she wears yellow because she technically has a white skin tone? What about an Italian woman who has naturally dark skin? Does she get a loophole? What if a Nigerian woman’s favorite color to wear is black?

I love the color yellow and I don’t want to be judged for wearing a color that was not invented last month and is just a part of the rainbow. Nor should anyone else be judged for what they choose to wear. What I’m trying to get at is that we should just stop shaming women for their choices, because haven’t women already been through enough? If any woman chooses to wear black one day, purple the next, and yellow the following day, so be it.

Women are beautiful for the unique skin tone and in every color outfit they chose to wear. We should empower women, not bring them down, especially if you are a woman yourself.
