a beautiful creation

The weather’s just brisk enough to remind Regan Mies, first-year Bwogger, of fall bonfires and roasting s’mores. She realizes, unfortunately, that it might not be realistic to have an evening bonfire get-together on Butler Lawn, and has instead crafted a recipe for  S’mores Dessert Dip using ingredients gathered strictly from John Jay and Ferris! Share with friends in the warmth of your dorm, or eat it entirely by yourself with a spoon–we’re not judging.

This week: S’mores Dessert Dip

Appliances: a microwave

Ingredients:

  • 6 packets of cream cheese
  • two John Jay coffee-cups full of mini marshmallows (can be found by the ice cream machine)
  • an almost-coffee-cup of marshmallow fluff
  • a half-coffee-cup of hot fudge (or Nutella, if you’re up to it??)
  • a green take-out box of as many graham crackers as you’d like
  • a pinch of salt

Yum!

It’s finally fall! You can almost feel the leaves on college walk about to change colors. You haven’t had the chance to head to an apple orchard upstate (midterms, what else?), but you dream of the perfect fall day: watching Halloweentown, drinking a mug of hot tea, and sliding your spoon into a warm bowl of fresh applesauce. You remember the John Jay and Ferris take-out boxes full of random ingredients in your dorm: apples, some cinnamon… perfect! Follow our recipe below for the perfect fall snack–made entirely out of food gathered from John Jay and Ferris!

As new freshmen in Wallach (kitchens in the lounges!), my roommate Paolina and I have embarked on an endeavor to create as many recipes as we can with only food from Ferris and John Jay. Sometimes they’ll turn out great and other times they definitely won’t! Each recipe will end with some real people reviewing our finished product, so you’ll know what’s up.

This week: Layered Yam Cheesecake

Appliances: Microwave and fridge

Ingredients:

Cheese part:

  • almost a quarter of a take out box of John Jay roasted yams
  • 10 cream cheese packets
  • two hefty spoonfuls of caramel sauce from the ice cream station
  • like a bit of cinnamon, a John Jay stolen-silverware spoonful
  • 2 packets of sugar

Crust part:

  • five smallish handfuls of Chex cereal
  • a smallish handful of Cinnamon Toast Crunch
  • 3 pinches of cinnamon
  • 2 sugar packets
