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..
