Cooking-corner_-colorado-chocolate-cakeThis is the perfect recipe for any kind of special occasion. It is a little bit too much work for most people to do just for a random slice of cake but if it is a roommate's birthday or the birthday of a significant other, it is a great way to impress them and earn some good brownie points, or in this case, cake points. Be prepared to dedicate a couple hours to creating this masterpiece, but once it is finished and presented on the table, no one will be able to deny how absolutely delicious it looks. Take a bite and let the deliciousness dissolve on your tongue. The best part of the recipe is that it is a quite large cake, so there will be plenty left over to eat for days afterwards, either as a good afternoon snack or for a not-so-healthy lunch.

Cooking Corner: Falafel

Cooking Corner_ FalafelThere is a common misconception that vegetarian food means bland food. While there are definitely vegetarian foods that can be bland, there are also plenty of meats that can be bland if cooked badly. One of the most delicious types of vegetarian food that can be very tasty and have great flavor is Falafel. Falafel is a Middle Eastern food made from chickpeas or garbanzo beans(same thing just two different names for them). This is a food that is very high in protein due to the beans used to make it. As a result, they are a perfect substitute for meat because it still provides a good source of protein. There are several ways in which falafel can be made, such as deep fried balls or as patties that can be eaten like burgers. Often times, falafel will be eaten with pita, which is a flat bread, hummus, a dip or spread made from smashed chickpeas or garbanzo beans, or a yogurt sauce. What better to eat than garbanzo beans with a side of more garbanzo beans? Falafel is a delicious, nutritious, and very filling meal that will be sure to leave everyone's stomach happy, full and content.

For anyone that is looking for a 'socially acceptable' breakfast that is essentially just sugar, covered in sugar, with a little extra sugar, then look no further than some delicious Gooey Rolls. People who have eaten monkey bread or cinnamon rolls can probably picture what this is. Basically, Gooey Rolls are just a sweet bread covered in sugar and cinnamon (possibly with pecans added in to pretend they are a little bit healthier). Whether or not they are being made just for a sugary breakfast or perhaps to fill a craving; either way they are sure to be delicious (assuming the recipe is followed correctly).

Cooking-Corner_-MuffinsWhen mothers drop their children off for a new year of school, they often leave behind vegetables in a futile attempt to get their kids to eat more healthily. Some vegetables, such as carrots or tomatoes, will be used pretty quickly. However, some vegetables no one knows what to do with. What if a summer squash gets left behind? This is a vegetable that no self-respecting college student even knows exists, so when they find one hanging out in the fridge, they wonder what to do with it. Some students may take that as a challenge to invent a delicious treat. One such invention is Summer Squash and Orange Muffins.

Cooking-corner-pastaEver been hungry and not sure what to make? Well, this is the perfect recipe for that. Most of the ingredients for this recipe are easy to come by and it is possible they might already be in the kitchen. Unfortunately, because of the fact that it was entirely made up on the spot, there are no specific measurements for the ingredients. Each ingredient's measurement should be taken with a grain of salt, but be careful to not add too much salt.
