Odd Thoughts 9/26/16

As I sit here on my break at work, I am painfully reminded of the time just a month ago when I wished I was back in school and busy. Oh how young and naive I was at 20 years and 8 months old. With almost no free time, except for when I’m not sacrificing…

Williamsburg, VA

It’s funny how some people are enthralled by a vacation to Florida or the Caribbean. How can I blame them though? The warm weather and clear blue ocean is a happy place for nearly anyone. It’s a bit overrated though (and by overrated, I mean it’s too damn expensive for a college student). You can…

Breakfast Tacos

This recipe is so easy, so I want to write it simply and concisely! I hate when blogs have a long ass explanation on why the recipe has so much spiritual meaning to the blogger’s third cousin, twice removed. Just enjoy! Ingredients: Cherry tomatoes, sliced in half Shredded Cheese (Mexican, White Cheddar, Pepper Jack) Avocado,…

Whole Wheat Flour Quick Tip

Whether it’s whole wheat or white whole wheat flour, you are going to have to be careful while using it when baking. This flour is tricky and sticky. If you are making a batter, ensure that you DO NOT OVERMIX. The best way to make certain you don’t is to only mix until you can’t…

Odd Thoughts : 8/7/2016

After working two jobs and taking a class this summer, I can proudly claim I am still alive. However, I can’t say I’m unscathed. Being a camp counselor is like being a mom to thirty kids all at once. All the yelling and talking back doesn’t take away from how much fun it really was….

Favorite Places : Iron Rooster

My main goal in life is to be like Bilbo Baggins: Break out of my comfort zone and anxiety prone family to go on an adventure. Also, how can you enjoy any journey without second breakfast, brunch, and lunch? Whenever I go out, I keep that in mind. Half the fun of traveling is eating….

Grocery Shopping for Your Health and Sanity

You know that thing you have to do because you’re tired of ordering take out from that mediocre pizza place around the corner? Or how about when you have no where else to look to catch em’ all on Pokemon Go within a reasonable distance from your house; you end up realizing you haven’t eaten…

My Garden

Living in College Park was a constant reminder of what I missed at home; my garden. In the concrete stop between Baltimore and D.C, there was little room to grow anything unless it was at the school. I discovered, a bit too late, about the community garden plots I could have rented. Now I’m home,…

Snickerdoodle Cake

People are obsessed with this cake when I make it. To be fair, its absolutely delicious. Just to be clear, I didn’t originally write this recipe, but I totally don’t even mind. This Snickerdoodle Cake is out of this world delicious; it’s comparable to a trip in the enterprise or the tardis. I changed the…

Grapefruit Chicken Marinade

The inspiration for this recipe came to me when I was actually reading another marinade recipe online. In the instructions, whoever wrote it said to use any citrus juice you’d like. I don’t think he/she meant grapefruit! It was the only citrus I had at hand at the time, but the marinade turned out perfect. I…

Buying Local : Quick Tip

Quick Tip: Buy Local! Eating locally grown and sold produce is good for the local economy and the environment. If the farm is owned by a family nearby, the food doesn’t have to travel as far, reducing the greenhouse gas footprint by a lot! The food is usually fresher and tastes even better 🙂 I’ve…
