Nut Free “Pecan” Pie

Having a sibling or child with an allergy is tough. My older brother has an anaphylactic allergy to peanuts and tree nuts which is extremely strenuous due to the amount of foods that contain or are processed with nuts. As a child, my mom would buy us candies similar to M&M’s, Kit Kats, and Crunch…

Blueberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

Because of my holiday nostalgia, I figured there was no better time to put a healthy twist on one of my favorite holiday treats, cookies! These are amazing for quick snacks on the go because they’re packed with healthy fats and are a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth without ruining your New Year’s…

Cranberry and Fried Goat Cheese Salad

Fried goat cheese balls don’t exactly sound appealing, but once you try one, trust me, you’ll want to eat them like popcorn.

Antonio’s

Almost every time I tell someone I go to UMass Amherst, their first question is “Have you gone to Antonio’s yet?” so my roommate and I decided to try it out. We walked to downtown Amherst, which is about a 20 minute walk from campus and when we got there, there was a line out…
