Elliot Stabler Was The OG SVU Detective, And TBH, We Need Him Back For These 7 Reasons

He may have been unSTABLE, but we all want him back anyway.

Elliot Stabler SVU

Ahhh, Elliot Stabler, the character that SVU fans love, hate and relate to all in one piece. While many gorgeous detectives have walked in and out of the SVU squad room, none have been quite so lovable as Stabler. And, let's be honest, the Benson/Stabler duo was UNBEATABLE!

Here are just a few of many, many reasons why we want Stabler back. (And yes, Chris Meloni being dreamy is totally a viable reason!)

1. His direct approach


If you did it, Elliot knew it. I don't know how, he just did!

2. His partnership with Benson


Please, as if every SVU fan ever didn't totally ship Elliot and Olivia over Elliot and his actual wife.

3. He was fighting to get the creeps off the street


NO ONE hated these criminals more than Stabler, and no one would work harder to get them off the street and behind bars.

4. His dedication


Going hand in hand with number three is this one. He was so dedicated to the job — he took a few bullets during his time at SVU and even went undercover in dangerous situations!

5. His inability to hide his feelings


You always knew exactly what Stabler was thinking and feeling, and to be honest, that was pretty A-OK in the SVU. Or, at least it was A-OK for viewers!

6. His hustle


He took the whole "work hard" thing to a whole new level.

7. He's a great friend


He was always there for his squad members — even when they had creative differences. Now, they just get in trouble and nearly die because there's no Stabler to the rescue!

Need I say more? As great as all these other detectives are, they'll never beat Stabler! He can take some getting used to, but once he captures your heart, there's no going back. Trust me.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

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.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
