Cooking Column: Quick n’ Go Edition

By Sarah Reiff ’20 and Astor Wu ’20

Being a student with a busy life, it’s hard to find time to make breakfast every morning. We all would rather stay in bed for those extra 10 minutes then get up and cook a meal. For this issue, Cooking Column brings you fast and easy breakfast ideas that you can prepare in under 10 minutes and eat on your way to school.

Our first recipe is a classic and simple Double Berry breakfast parfait. If there is no time to prepare something the night before a school day, then these parfaits are the perfect last minute option. They’re super easy to make and are very mess free.
