MANNA Pies

Before the holidays at Friends Central, many people and advisories bought MANNA pies, whether for advisory parties or for their Thanksgiving Dinner. MANNA enrolls 4,200 volunteers to feed and nourish people (and their family) suffering from AIDS/HIVs, cancer, and diabetes. They provide a meals on Thanksgiving day for people in need. This year they got $240,000. At Friends’ Central, Magistra, her daughter Annie and Dr. Scapik are running the program. Magistra sent an email to the teachers. It goes as follows: “The MANNA pie sale touches close to home for my family as MANNA started in my church kitchen in the 1980s as a result of a sermon my dad preached not long before he died. FCS leads schools in the area in our Thanksgiving pie sales. We are already up to 106 pies sold with a goal of 169.” In an interview with Dr. Scapik she said: “We have…


Juice Machine Recipes #3

Hey everyone! It’s Luke and Riley again back with another Juice Machine Recipe. If you are unfamiliar with the juice machine, then here is a quick rundown. About a month ago, the school added a juice machine. With this juice machine, you can fully customize your drink by changing which flavors you use, how strong the flavors are, the size of the drink, and which sweetener you use. Recently, the juice machine has received yet another UI (user interface) addition. You can now choose the size of you drink! The three options are 8oz, 16oz and 20oz. This update is helpful has it removes the need to pour your drink twice if you want 16oz. Today’s Recipe: Mr. Berry Yes, we know that this sounds cringy, but this recipe only includes berries, leaving only one possible name. It actually tastes great, though, with a tangy, sweet, raspberry taste. Step #1:…


Juice Machine Recipes #2

Welcome back everyone, it’s Luke and Riley here and today we are continuing our Juice Machine Recipe series. In this series of articles, we try to create recipes using the new juice machine outside of the cafeteria next to the athletic offices. As we’ve said, we hope to continue this series and any feedback or constructive criticism on the recipes would be much appreciated. If you don’t know about this new machine, it’s called Mix. If you would like to know more about this machine, check out our article from last week, Juice Machine Recipes 1. Now, let’s continue with the recipe. Recently, a new interface was installed, changing the system’s visuals. However, the options themselves remained the same. If you want to make ‘Bootleg Sprite’ from our previous article, you will see that Step 4 would transition to Step 6, skipping Step 5. During Step 7, press and hold…


Top 4 Pizzerias in Philadelphia

There are many great pizza shops in the city, but what are the best? Today I’ll be listing my top 3 favorite pizza shops in Philadelphia, and one of Ms. Kenealy’s favorites, too. 1. Stella’s Pizzeria is a great pizza shop if you’re going for quick and delicious food. The pizza here comes in many different styles. You can order alcohol, soda, and other drinks along with your pizza. Stella’s uses a wood fire oven to cook their wonderful pies. The main seating area is an open room with tall ceilings and lots of windows. It can seat a lot of people with the many chairs and tables, and I have heard that there is outdoor seating in the spring/summer. Service is always great and food always comes out fast. 2. Nomad Roman Pizza is easily the best thin-crust pizza I have ever had. Their pizza is so perfectly covered…


Restaurant Review: Hymie’s Merion Delicatessen

“Your boss will be here. Your boss’s boss will be here. Shouldn’t you be here too?” -www.barsonsdeli.com Hello everyone! It is Charlie and Tucker, the dynamic duo collaborating yet again. As you may know, there have been some tragedies in the Jewish community across the country, and we thought it would be a perfect time to review a Jewish deli! Here we have Hymie’s Merion Delicatessen, which is an incredible Jewish deli located in Merion Station (hence the name), near two other fabulous restaurants, Saffron (find our review for that here), and Shangri-la (review coming soon!). Decor Hymie’s is known for it’s traditional diner feel, as well as its durability. It has been around since 1955 and has even survived a truck crashing into the building! But what most people cherish about Hymie’s design is the interior. Jewish history suffocates the walls of the building. The soft cushioned seats compliment people…


Valentine’s Day Dinner

Valentine’s Day is tomorrow! In my family, we have a tradition where the guys cook a dinner and the girls buy presents on Valentine’s Day to celebrate. Then, the next year we switch tasks and celebrate again. I would like to share a few recipes for Valentine’s Day. Sorry for any vegans/vegetarians out there, as this list will contain meat and other animal products. Appetizer This is a Blue Cheese and Steak Crostini with Balsamic Vinegar. It only takes about thirty minutes to complete. I cooked this for a Valentine’s Day dinner in the past and I can confirm it is quick, easy, and tasty.   Entree The Filet Mignon with a Rich Balsamic Glaze continues the trend with additional balsamic components, but that doesn’t make this any less delicious. The filet mignon dish also contains string beans/asparagus and roasted potatoes to balance out the intense flavor from the meat. Considering this recipes…
