Foodie (noun): A person who loves and knows anything and everything related to food

I am 100% a foodie - I love food, and I love making food too. If you are a foodie like me, than you are guilty of more than a few of the following.

1) Watching food videos is the ultimate satisfaction

One of Buzzfeed's TASTY video popping up on your Facebook leads to a trap of watching countless videos of tossing pasta, frosting cake, or drizzling chocolate sauce.

2) One of the best parts of holidays is the food

You can actually have an excuse to stuff your face with as much food as humanely possible!


3) You remember everything you ate

When people bring up a holiday, vacation, or event you will most likely remember what food you ate as some of the main highlights.

4) Hangry is a part of your vocabulary

Hangry (adj.) : A state of anger resulting in lack of food; hunger causing a negative change in emotional state.

5) Free food...you're there!

6) You will pretty much try anything new

Nothing phases you in the food world. You are willing to taste things that are unusual or from other cultures. Sushi? Yum! Kimchi? Why not! Escargot? Sure, I would give it a try.

7) You take pictures of your food

Yes, you are one of those annoying people. Whether it's for your food Instagram or you just like taking pictures of food in general, you have to snap a picture of your meal...unless of course you get too excited and eat it first.

8) Sharing food is never an option

9) Going to a restaurant is so exciting

Spontaneously deciding to go out to eat is so much fun and when you have a meal at a restaurant coming up, you are excited about it days in advance.

10) Food Network is your go to channel

Food Network is one of your top channels, especially when you are bored and have a lot of time on your hands. You know all the chefs, all the shows, and could spend hours watching the Food Network. (Oh and the magazine is really good too!)

11) It takes you forever to decide what to order at a restaurant

How can you possibly decide when everything sounds so good!?

12) You feel like you have the knowledge and palate of a professional chef

As a result of watching countless hours of Food Network and making so much food, you are basically an expert. You can explain what a truffle tastes like, what miss en place means, how to flambé, and how to pronounce tzatziki.

13) Cooking is so much fun!

Cooking and/or baking is one of your favorite pastimes. You love searching Pinterest for recipes and experimenting in the kitchen.

14) You are slightly offended by people who don't like what you like

When someone doesn't like a food or restaurant you love...it breaks your heart. How can someone possibly not like cheese? Or guacamole? Or waffles?

15) You sit at the table before the food is even ready

Because you are just THAT excited to eat!

16) You are known for giving "Chopped" judge level critiques and descriptions

17) Food is the first thing you think of

You always wonder... "What's for dinner?."

18) You just plain and simply love food!

Is it bad that I have done all of these at some point? My friends and family always make fun of my ridiculous food obsession. How many of these have you done before?

Cookies are probably one of the greatest foods to exist in this world. There are so many varieties and tastes that my mouth is salivating just thinking about it. There are just as many, if not more, majors to compare to cookies. Let me give it a try.

1. History - Sugar Cookie

History never changes, much like sugar cookies. (Also, they're both boring.)

2. English - Nutella Lava Cookie Cups

English majors tend to be creative. This cookie is that and more.

3. Biology - Giant Cookie

Things are always evolving, becoming bigger and better than they were before. This giant cookie mimics a regular one, except, well, it's giant.

4. Accounting - Green Tea Shortbread Sandwich Cookies

2 + 1 = deliciousness

5. Art - Double Decker, Dark Chocolate, Mini Doughnut Sugar Cookie

This is simply a work of art - pun intended.

6. Chemistry - Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookie

Hmm, maybe if I add just a bit of bacon, it will make this cookie 10x better.

7. Statistics - Hot Cocoa Cookies

Hmm, the statistics of this cookie being delicious is...100%.

8. Dance - Banana Split Cake Mix Cookies

It's all in the name.

9. Theater - Insanely Delicious Turtle Cookies

There are some insanely talented people in this major.

10. Sports Management - Brown Butter Oatmeal Cookies Filled with Caramel and Peanut Butter

There are so many different things going on with this major, I thought it appropriate to put a cookie that also has a lot of things going on with it.

11. Public Health - Trail Cookies

I guess these are healthy? Kinda?

12. Mass Communications - Peach Drop Cookies

A reporter can do many things, especially if they blow our minds away. Mic drop, anyone?

13. Nursing - Red Velvet Cheesecake Cookies

Don't you love looking a blood? No? Then why are you a nursing major?


If your major wasn't on here, I'm sorry. There are too many for me to compare to cookies.

7 Places In Wichita To Eat Ice Cream On A Hot Summer Day

Wichita + ice cream = Great.

I'm typing this article underneath the cool air conditioner in the Edmond Stanley Library at Friends University. Outside, the sun is beating down upon its victims. There is no shadow shady enough to protect us from the sun's intense rays. My thermostat reads 82°F, but with the Kansas humidity, it feels like it could be in the hundreds!

Thank goodness for ice cream!

Although I've only lived in Wichita for a couple years, I have discovered many amazing places that serve ice cream! From classic vanilla cones to unique specialties, Wichita has it all!

1. QuikTrip

Did you know an ice-cream cone from Quik Trip only costs 49 cents? It's a great deal, considering how tall they make them, too!

2. Braums

A Central Midwest classic, you can never go wrong with Braums! They're always rolling out new ice creams for various seasons. Plus, you can shop in their marketplace while sipping on your malt!

3. 8 Degrees Below

This is a new ice cream store to the area, but it's definitely the most unique. Imagine that a Mongolian grill and an ice cream store got together and had a baby. That's exactly what 8° Below is! I love going here and watching them make my ice cream and roll it up!

They have three locations in the area (701 E Douglas Ave, 2929 N. Rock Rd., and 1821 E. Madison Ave. Derby), so if you're looking for a unique experience, be sure to check this place out!

4. College Hill Creamery

I love visiting Clifton Square for many reasons and College Hill Creamery is one of them. They have a relaxing atmosphere and even serve chocolate covered coffee beans! As for their ice cream? They put the "cream" in creamery.

5. Coldstone

If you like large scoops of uniquely flavored ice cream, Coldstone is the place to be! Coldstone is my place to go whenever I feel like treating myself.

"The night is young, the school year's over, and finals are behind us. Let's celebrate with Coldstone!"

6. Yo-B Yogurt and Burgers

Once upon a time, I was a faithful customer of Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt. However, everything changed once I stepped foot inside Yo-B Yogurt and Burgers.

Imagine: twenty yogurt flavor options, a whole wall dedicated to cereals, two bars filled with fruit, candy, other toppings, AND pumps for fudge and caramel? Did I mention you can eat burgers and chicken strips here too?

Guys! This place is the best! If you don't believe me, visit it yourself in Old Town next to the Warren!

7. Sonic

Did someone say half-priced shakes???

Every night after 8 p.m., you can get a shake for half the price! Sometimes, Sonic has specials and deals which allow you to get a half-priced shake during the day!

There you have it! Go visit your favorite ice cream spot today!
