Whenever I want to impress someone with my cooking this is my go to recipe. I have yet to meet someone who dislikes it, and in fact, it usually becomes one of their favorite meals. Everyone in my family is in love with this steak. Every time I go home to visit them, they ask me to make this. While this is recipe is intended to serve two people, it can easily be doubled for more.

Though this post’s title makes a joke from the Mario themed band, Super Mash Bros., fans of the band can take this seriously: they are going to be playing this Friday at 7 PM at Delta Upsilon, 229 Locust Lane. Tickets for this event are $15 at the door or online. Tickets can also be purchased in the HUB until Oct 1.

While riding the bus to Innovation Park one morning, I saw a huge line of people standing outside a non-descript building. In my four years at Penn State, I never once paid any attention to this building, despite the fact that every football season I have walked past it on my way into Beaver Stadium. Outside there was a sign advertising a meat sale. Curious, I went online once I reached my destination and found what might be considered Penn State’s best kept secret. Almost every Friday during the Fall and Spring semesters, the Meat Laboratory holds a retail sale full of fresh cut, locally raised meat that is open to the public.

Here’s a recipe to add to your autumn arsenal. It’s tart and tangy and pairs well with slow-cooked pork and sweet pumpkin ale.

Facing heavy competition from the NFL’s Monday Night Football and Mad Mex’s infamous five dollar burrito special, Elf Power still managed to pull in a respectable crowd at Chronic Town. Elf Power did not disappoint, even if you were secretly hoping they had something to do with Keebler.

Fall is here! Which means it’s time for squash. Acorn squash, in particular, has great flavor and only requires a small amount of prep time to create a delicious side dish.

During an Elf Power show at Chronic Town in downtown State College, I began to consider the current state of affairs for local indie-rock music.

Thank you to Kim Tait from Tait Farms for sharing her recipe for pork and apple meatballs. They would make a nice addition to your tailgating table, or they can be served over noodles as a main course.
What is your favorite fall recipe? Share it here.

When I arrived at Café 210 on Wednesday, Go Go Gadjet was setting up an extravagant light display and smoke machines. I had high expectations. When the band opened up with Boom Boom Pow from the Black Eyed Peas, I realized it was just another cover band performing in a pseudo-night club.
