Whether you have minimal experience in the kitchen or you’re a veteran chef, the culinary arts are exciting to explore in all areas. Food has a way of reinventing itself for everyone, and people are constantly looking for new ways to spice it up in the kitchen. Consider Food Network attracted its largest audience last year (averaging 1.1 million viewers a night), a simple App Store search turns up hundreds of recipe-related tools, and Pinterest is brimming with thousands of tailgate-tailored, husband-pleasing, festive, you’ll be the hostess with the mostest, “OMG, this is so easy!” culinary concoctions. It’s safe to say, we’re food-obsessed.

Your eyes are watering and itchy. You have sneezed so many times you’ve lost count. You startled everyone at the drugstore with your piercing celebratory scream when you discovered Allegra was half-off. Welcome, spring, we’re glad you’re here! Sure, pollen in the air is a tell-tale sign that warmer weather is upon us, but with the warmer weather comes that sudden urge to get outside and enjoy it before the true dog days of summer set in.
Welcome to March, and more importantly, the answer to your social woes: the NCAA Tournament. True, very few of us were worried about our school’s basketball record those few weeks leading up to the Iron Bowl. Even if you pull for that team that won the National Championship this year, you probably still haven’t thought much about it. Well, now is the time to get invested.
