Perfectly seasoned, impressively juicy taco meat is within reach as long as beer and tequila are, too.Read More »from The Trick to Making Delicious Ground Beef Taco Meat
There are some iconic foods here in New York: hot dogs on the street, giant slices of pizza, bagels with cream cheese. You know what we're not known for? Tacos. You can find tacos in NYC, but they're either (a) not very good, (b) kind of on the pricey side for what they are, or (c) located at the far nether regions of the five boroughs. Having grown up in Los Angeles (closer to Mexico), I crave tacos on a regular basis. And if you want something done right, do it yourself.
Related: The Meal Plan: It's Taco Night!
What's the first key to good taco meat? Don't dry it out. By using a little bit of beer and tequila, you not only add some flavor, but you keep it nice and juicy. Second key: don't try it out. Seriously, super-important not to cook it over too high heat or for too long. Third: season, season, season that meat. It's supposed to be the star and has to stand up to toppings. Fourth: (because the second key was a repeat) good tortillas. Bad tortillas beget bad tacos, never forget

Avoiding the Freshman 15Along with chatter about class schedules, the campus bookstore, and your dorm roommate, you've probably heard the expression Freshmen 15 as you prepare for your first year away at college.Read More »from What is the Freshmen 15 and How Do You Avoid It?
Just what exactly is the Freshmen 15? Is it 15 new friends? Or is it 15 college credits that are required each semester? Or perhaps 15 different brews on tap at the college bar? Proverbially, this old adage refers to the 15 pounds of weight gained during a typical freshman's first semester at college.

But is this true for all freshmen entering college? According to Laura Cipullo, a registered dietician who runs her own private practice out of New York City, unfortunately it is. Cipullo tells us that recent research findings confirm the Freshmen 15 theory, and tell us that a small but significant amount of weight gain occurs during the first year of college. It's not necessarily 15 pounds in most cases, but sometimes as much as 5 pounds.
