Pumpkin Extravaganza

By UIC Contributor
November 6, 2012 - 8:55pm

Fall is the most wonderful time of the year (sorry Andy Williams). From the leaves, to the sweaters, hot chocolate, and most importantly, pumpkin-flavored everything, fall is pure bliss. Especially the pumpkin part. All the wannabe-pumpkin lovers seem to come out of the woodworks at this time and make their appearance at Starbucks for their latte, but us true pumpkin lovers prefer to take it to the next level. Here are some of my favorite pumpkin recipes to enhance the gloriousness that is Autumn in Chicago. Pumpkin Spice Muffins
So easy, so cheap, so delicious. All you  need is a box of spice cake and a can of pumpkin. Mix together and back for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Top with powdered sugar or cream cheese frosting. Yum!...

Coming soon to theaters everywhere-directing and design major Katie Norton! HC UIC: Major? Year in school? Plans after college?
KATIE: I am a directing and design major here at UIC. Right now I'm a second semester junior even though it's the first semester of the year. I went to community college for two years and then took a year off. I pay for school, so when I wasn't in school, I was working. My goal after college is to have a Disney Tech internship. I would do anything from rigging lights to stage management. There's opportunities in California and one in Florida, and they go from January to June. I'd want to be in California because there are more job opportunities. READ MORE
