Eight Recipes to Bring Autumn to Your Heart (and Stomach)

Courtesy of

You know it’s fall when the good ol’ PSL is back in every coffee shop and you suddenly find yourself surrounded by all things made of apple and squash. Autumn is the best season for comfort food – everything is warm and cozy, from soups and stews to pies and pastries. Whether you’re a die-hard sweet tooth or tend to fall along the more savory side of things, we’ve rounded up four of the best recipes for each category to keep your appetite satisfied and warm as the temperatures drop. Sweet: Baked pears with walnuts and honey. This recipe only calls for four ingredients, and it will warm you up like nothing else. It has the bonus of making you feel virtuous for eating fruit (when was the last time that happened?), and also looking like something out of an upscale New York restaurant that also serves craft sodas and creatively-named cocktails.  Apple pie cups. The only thing that would make apple pie more delicious is having it in miniature form. With a cinnamon streusel topping and drizzled caramel over the whole confection, this dessert has it all. Although you could take a more homemade route with this one, using… Read more »

We’ve found some of your best texts amid the Homecoming frolicking and although the weekend is over, the texts will live on (even if you don’t remember them).

The perils of Late Night Collis.

When does the networking end? (Hint: it doesn’t)

617: I’ll actually try to wingman though the fact that I shadowed his father for a day and am connected with him on linkedin might be hard to suppress

The real meaning of anarchy.

Precaution taken to the next level.

Off the Green: 11 Best Pick-Your-Own Apple Orchards

Base Camp Café Brings Nepali Cuisine to Hanover


Moving from the San Francisco Bay Area to Dartmouth was quite the change for me. I realized that I would soon feel temperatures below zero, and have to wear snow boots and a parka just to remember what warmth felt like. And I had to get used to a slightly more limited food scene. I always joke with friends from home that in Hanover, there’s the Chinese restaurant, the Thai restaurant and the Indian restaurant. But the Hanover restaurant scene just got a little more exciting with the addition of Base Camp Café, a Nepalese restaurant serving lunch and dinner every day. Just over two weeks ago, this joint set up shop in the basement of 3 Lebanon Street, replacing Salubre Trattoria.  Base Camp Café uses local, organic produce as often as possible and doesn’t deep fry any dishes. The restaurant avoids using artificial chemicals and colors and incorporates healthy fats, like olive and sesame oils, into its recipes. It also serves plenty of vegetarian and vegan options, flavor included. Manager Bhola Pandey researched obesity and nutrition in Boston for two years before opening up Café Momo in Manchester. Each dish has an almost scientific nutrient breakdown, consisting of 60… Read more »

Howe’s Little Free Libraries Draw Positive Feedback


Those of you who weren’t on campus in the summer may have noticed an extra dose of cute in Hanover – the Howe Library installed two Little Free Libraries over 14X. These structures invite passersby to “Take a book, leave a book,” offering a small break from a hectic day. The first Little Free Library was unveiled in front of Hanover’s Town Hall on Aug, 11 and the second, between the Hanover Inn and the Hop, was installed earlier this month. Since 2009, the Little Free Library movement has spread worldwide, spearheaded by an organization of the same name. According to the Little Free Library website, these free book exchanges aim to “promote literacy and the love of reading” and to “build a sense of community as we share skills, creativity and wisdom across generations.” As of Jan. 15, 15,000 Little Free Libraries were registered with the organization across at least 56 countries . The quaint structures in Hanover have been in the works for over a year, when Howe Library staff and trustees decided it would be a worthwhile project. Howe Library director Mary White said she was drawn to the idea by the opportunity for outreach it provided the library. “A lot of… Read more »
