A game that celebrates American spirit, enthusiasm for whatever team you call your own, and the opportunity to be with friends, drink beer, and eat excessive amounts of great food.

While my team is officially out of the race to the Superbowl (c’mon Chargers, step it up this year!), I’m still majorly in it for the food.

Bakerita’s Top 14 Recipes of 2014

Top14of2014We’re onto the final couple days of 2014, and I’m still reeling that this year’s already almost at it’s end. This time last year, I was getting off the plane in London, starting my semester abroad. The first six months of my 2014 were spent traveling to over 12 different countries, and even more cities, all over Europe, with a brief stint in Africa. I couldn’t have asked for a more incredible, insightful, exciting, stimulating semester. My time spent abroad was unlike any other time in my life, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
