An Award Goes Out To…

Hi Friends! So I was recently scrolling through my WordPress Reader reading my friend Meg’s blog, My Sprinkle of Prep, which is linked here, and she talked about the Liebster Awards. I read through her Q & A, and noticed I was tagged to do it too! Her posts are awesome and I’m always looking for more college bloggers! Meg’s posts are so relate-able and you should head over to her blog if you want information on travel and college! Thank you for the nomination and I’m excited to answer some questions about myself for my followers and friends!

My Recent Purchases.. Lilly Pulitzer, Nordstrom Sale, J. Crew, Gap, LOFT, and Aerie

I don’t know if it’s just me or you all have been buying, buying, buying lately! I have found so many cute pieces for my closet that have all been on sale! A girl couldn’t possibly pass on some new staples for my sophomore year of college. Even on a budget, everyone can find clothes they love! Continue reading “My Recent Purchases..

Duck Donuts: An Experience You Need! (And Will Love)

I have a confession. It’s a food related one. I love D O N U T S. I’m talking a donut a day makes the doctor go away, craving. I always loved going to grab donuts on a Saturday morning for the whole family with my dad. Continue reading “Duck Donuts: An Experience You Need! (And Will Love)”

My Go-To Stir-Fry Recipe!

I want to start off this post by saying I am not a cook. I’m a sophomore business major, who has spent almost no time in the kitchen. This summer while I live on campus for work, the townhouse I’m living in has a full size kitchen. I quickly figured out, that I had to learn to cook and had to learn fast. Today I’m going to tell you all about the recipe I made for dinner, and my tips for making a chicken stir fry! I wanted something generally healthy, quick, and no-fuss. This meal hit all my check marks!

  • First I heat up Olive Oil in a pan, and ¼ of a package of ground chicken. I cooked this until it was brown which was pretty quick, I’d say about 4 minutes.
  • Next I poured in ¼ of a bag of frozen broccoli, carrots, and cauliflower. I let this cook until they were soft. Pro tip: Next time I will definitely be cooking the vegetables before putting them in the pan.
  • After mixing everything together, it was time to add in the peppers! I chopped up two bell peppers, one red and one green. I used half of each better in this batch and added those to the mix! I let those soften along with everything else, being careful to keep mixing!

  • Now for the best part, the rice! I’m a girl who absolutely loves rice! I have not cooked rice yet in my new living space, so I opted for rice that was pre-cooked so I could just throw it in the pot. I used approximately one half of a bag of UNCLE Ben’s Rice! I tossed this in, threw some soy sauce in there and was done!

 

This meal is totally filling and made enough for two servings! It’s a pretty healthy meal but still tastes awesome! Let me know if you’d like to see more posts from my kitchen! Have a great weekend everyone..
