'Wright Time for a Schnack' provides delicious and diverse recipes for studentsPosted on November 9, 2012 | by Layla Ilchi
If you’re in the mood for a snack, it’s time for a visit to Steinhardt freshman Caty Schnack’s food blog.
Schnack’s blog, Wright Time for a Schnack, is a great source for fun and delicious recipes for students on a budget. The blog offers ideas for unique meals, drinks and desserts.
Schnack created the blog during the summer of 2011 with childhood friend Georgia Wright. The duo combined their last names to create the blog’s title.
The pair spontaneously came up with the idea for Wright Time for a Schnack while cooking.
“We were making mint strawberry lemonade and I started taking pictures of the process,” Schnack said. “From there I suggested we start a food blog.”
Schnack and Wright combined their love for food and cooking and began creating and posting recipes. Past recipes include caramel apple coffee cakes, quick and easy cinnamon rolls, summer tomato tart, mocha pudding and more.
“I don’t often see food blogs that have two authors,” Schnack said. “I love that we have our own voices in our writing and bring that personality to every post.”
After graduating from high school, Schnack and Wright decided to continue running the blog from their respective cities. Schnack contributes from her NYU dorm room, while Wright blogs about her food adventures from Madrid, Spain, where she is taking a gap year.
Since separating, the duo has added an interesting element to their blog: Wright features delicious food finds from different Madrid restaurants, while Schnack uses the restrictions of a college budget and a small kitchen to create convenient and inventive dishes.
Wright Time for a Schnack has already proven to be popular among students.
“[The blog] puts my hunger in a single picture,” said CAS freshman Hannah Weinstock.
“The way the images are captured allows the reader to smell the food coming off the screen.”
Wright Time for a Schnack is a great source for all students to learn how to make great-tasting recipes on a low budget. Wright and Schnack’s personalities and friendship are shown through their blog posts, and will entice any reader looking for some good food.
