WHOOPIE!!!

WHOOPIE!!!

Eating whoopie pies was an essential part of growing up in New England. When I moved to a part of the country where these treats were called gobs, I was appalled. I won’t even get started on what the same people called soda or how they pronounced aunt. That’s getting into a whole other issue. … Continue reading

This week at latteissues is PUMPKIN WEEK. What’s that? You’ve never celebrated PUMPKIN WEEK before? Well, like its better known close relative Shark Week, PUMPKIN WEEK is one of the greatest weeks of the year. And it’s even better when you’re unemployed and get to incorporate pumpkin into everything you do/eat. Like my Jack O’Lantern? … Continue reading

Roasted Acorn Squash

Roasted Acorn Squash

Over the last few weeks, butternut squash has been a staple in our fall menu. This week, my mom bought an acorn squash and requested that I make this recipe courtesy of Melanie in the Middle. When you are unemployed and living at home, cooking dinner for your parents is a way to contribute to … Continue reading

Food = <3.

Food = <3.

My friends, regardless of whether we are extremely close or not, all know a few keys facts about me: 1. I do not like bugs. 2. I was a rather interesting child. My younger years consisted of me eating my lipgloss (it tasted like cupcakes, COME ON), dressing up like Disney Princesses on a daily basis, … Continue reading

Sweet Potato & Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sweet Potato & Chocolate Chip Cookies

I could write an entire post solely about my love for sweet potatos. During senior year, you could often find my roommate and I in the kitchen at midnight making potato wedges (her specialty) and sweet potato fries (my specialty). Because potatoes are a normal midnight snack for college kids right? This time I decided … Continue reading

Living the unemployed life can sometimes cause you to feel a little lost. If you are so lost that even Caroline’s suggestions cannot help you, then I would recommend taking a trip! After being home for months and not venturing out into the world, taking a trip can be a bit intimidating but well worth the effort. Visit that … Continue reading

Cooking on an Unemployed Budget

Cooking on an Unemployed Budget

Not having a job means not having money to spend. Not having money to spend means not going out with my friends. And not going out with my friends means that there is a lot of time spent watching cat videos online. When I was first unemployed and unaware at how difficult it would be … Continue reading

Sweet-Tart

Sweet-Tart

I can remember getting AIM (AOL Instant Messenger) just like it was yesterday. I wasn’t allowed to have it at first because my parents were worried I’d abuse it (little did they know six years later I’d be selling my soul to Mark Zuckerberg and spending hours upon hours stalking my crush on a little … Continue reading

Livin’ the (Unemployed) Dream

Livin’ the (Unemployed) Dream

Sometimes you find yourself at home alone on a Saturday night, in your living room watching Disney’s Tangled, and crying your little eyes out because you’re just so happy when (SPOILER ALERT) Rapunzel finally sees the lanterns she’s wanted to see her whole life, but hasn’t been able to because an evil woman locked her … Continue reading

Skillet Hash and Eggs

Skillet Hash and Eggs

Whether you’re making breakfast before a big interview or enjoying a lazy morning at home, this dish is simple and full of flavor. I found the recipe in an old copy of my mom’s Food Network magazine. Actually purchasing the magazine is not in my budget as an unemployed twenty-something but that’s just one of … Continue reading
