Cooking in College– Tofu Edition

Makana Krulce-2015 Viterbi Life 0 Comments

Though I am not actually a vegetarian, I tend to cook on the meatless side because it ends up being cheaper and a little healthier. Betty and I always do our Ralph’s runs during the weekend to stock up on food items that we can’t get at Fresh&Easy, and that’s where I usually buy my staples like peanut butter and …

Emily Uncategorized, Viterbi Plus 0 Comments

As a self-proclaimed foodie it’s no surprise that one of my favorite places in Los Angeles is Grand Central Market. It’s basically an open floor plan of vendors for food. If you’ve ever been to Philadelphia it’s a like a smaller version of Reading Terminal Market (if you’re in Philadelphia and haven’t tried it, I highly recommend Beck’s Cajun Cafe …

If you’re craving something sweet and cold head to Salt & Straw.  You don’t have to give up ice cream during the fall and winter in Los Angeles; so this past Tuesday my friends and I took a trip to Larchmont where a small ice cream parlor serves the best ice cream on the block.

As a self-proclaimed foodie, one of my absolute favorite things about LA is the food.

Imagine making over 200 sandwiches in just 20 minutes!  This past week, my Freshman Academy Class had a seemingly simple task ahead of them.  They found out soon enough though that something that appears to be easy at first–is much more difficult on a mass production scale. The class was challenged with the assignment: optimize the process of making a PB&J sandwich.  Given …

One of the best parts of the weekender, is going up to NorCal and still running into hundreds of other Trojans.  Each year, USC plays an away game against either Stanford or Berkeley and hundreds of fans make the trip up to show our support.  This year we headed to Stanford and came back winners for the second year in …

Oh The Places You’ll Go…

One of the wonderful things about USC is that there are so many things on or just off campus that almost everything you need is conveniently located. Because of this, however, sometimes you have to make an effort to go out and explore LA. LA is such a large, diverse city that sometimes the thought of exploration can be daunting. …
