What better way to fill all of your free time this midterm season than eating your way through Columbia’s Core! With the help of Cooking With Bwog, you can knock out all those Core requirements one recipe at a time.

LitHum: Stovetop Oats A healthy, filling breakfast is the foundation of a great day, and LitHum is the foundation of a Columbia education.

UWriting: S’mores Dessert Dip You may not want to sit around a campfire roasting s’mores with your newfound UWriting buddies (unless you’re ceremoniously burning your P3’s!), so give this dip a try instead.

FroSci: Avocado Pesto Your pasta will be very green. Science, too, is green. Just like math and English are blue and history is red.

CC: Rum Punch

ArtHum: Cinnamon Bun French Toast The Louvre is French. So is this toast.

MusicHum: Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with Berry Compote The recipe’s title itself makes me feel as though I should be listening to the first movement of a romantic symphony and contemplating its sonata-allegro form and polyphonic melodies.

Global Core: Omelets There are fifty-five approved Global Core classes for this semester. I bet you could make fifty-five different omelets. This recipe suggests four combinations of ingredients to get you started.

Science Requirement: Chocolate Lava Cakes Take something exciting! Learn about volcanoes and lava, dinosaurs, outer space, physics (for poets!)–the options are endless.

Foreign Language: Apple Potato Fries ft. a Fried Egg This recipe would taste very good in any language.

Phys Ed: Couscous Veggie Medley Eat yo veggies. Health.
