Energy Bites, Two Ways

Emily Glover

I love studying journalism, but it can make for some hectic weeks leading up to finals. With papers, newspaper assignments and occasional tests, I get pushed pretty darn near the edge — and I’m not even sure what the edge is. I don’t have enough time to think about it. ...

Calories: To count or not to count?

Emily Glover

At the end of my freshman year of college, when I set out to lose a little bit of weight, I started keeping track of my meals and started to pay more attention to calories. In the beginning, this habit was innocent enough. I just logged calories on a website ...

A runner's goals

Emily Glover

On any given day, I could come up with a list (at least) of 10 things at which I wish I was better. More often than not, “running” would probably appear on that list. That is because — I’ll admit — I am not the speediest girl on the block… ...

Ginger Snap Pumpkin Pie

Emily Glover

My ideal Thanksgiving dinner is pretty simple. Give me some mashed potatoes, asparagus, butternut squash and corn casserole and I’m happy. Add on some apple pie and I’m in Thanksgiving heaven. It should be noted that nowhere in that perfect day is pumpkin pie. I’ve just never been a fan ...

Butternut Squash Pot Pie

Emily Glover

Birthdays were extra special treats in my house growing up. I loved the new gifts, the slumber parties and — I’ll admit — the attention. Most of all, I loved getting to have chicken pot pie. I’m serious. Chicken pot pie was basically my favorite thing in the world back ...

Emily Glover

I’ve been sitting on a certain post for a while and it seems as timely as ever after yesterday’s devastating and shocking news that Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are ending their 72-day marriage. **The Value of Marriage** I’m newlywed and admittedly still in the honeymoon phase.
