School calendars are being adjusted to give your students the best learning opportunities possible during these times. And this mean, unfortunately, spring break will probably be cancelled, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make that time of year special for your students. Help them explore the world through their taste buds and bring them to exotic destinations through the foods you serve.

These Recipes are as "Fine as Cream Gravy"

A quick getaway to the Texas coast or to a major metro area is a great trip away from the stresses of college, so why not highlight some Tex-Mex favorites? Your students will be feeling “fine as cream gravy,” as they say in the Lone Star State, with these recipes.

Kitchen Caribbean

Another classic spring break destination? The Caribbean! Whisk students away with the bold island flavors of garam masala, jerk seasoning and cayenne and remind them of the simple pleasures in life with these two recipes. Perhaps the Caribbean feels will vibe through them and help to refresh and restore students to finish out the semester strong.

¡Vamos a México!

Mexico - the quintessential spring break trip. Sandy beaches and warm sun will shake off the classroom doldrums, for sure. Although many students will be forgoing crossing the border this year, you can give the palates of those who stay on campus that south-of-the-border taste!
