College Eats: One-Pan Hawaiian Bread Sliders

IMG_7768

As a college student, I like making my meals as quickly and with as few dishes as possible, which is why i’m a HUGE fan of one-pot, one-pan, one-bake type recipes! My roommate Rashmi showed me this Sliders 4 Ways video from the Buzzfeed’s Tasty YouTube channel, which are sliders made in one pan! Since it looked relatively simple, we decided to attempt it ourselves, and I gotta say, it turned out pretty well! We made our own turkey sliders that are loosely based on their cheeseburger slider, but we used pepperjack cheese instead and seasoned our turkey meat with my taco spice mix.

College Eats: Taiwanese Popcorn Chicken!

IMG_7400College livin’ can be hard. You don’t truly appreciate home, until you’re living with 3 other people in a tiny apartment, and the dishes are piled to the ceiling, there are 3 different bug infestations in your kitchen, and every time you open the fridge, it looked like a volcano exploded ketchup and leftover Chinese food everywhere. Nevertheless, it’s a time in my life that i’ll look back at fondly, because of the ever-changing group of people that are always coming into my life. Whether it’s roommates, friends, neighbors, or classmates, there’s never a dull moment!

I learned this recipe from my roommate’s friend, Daniel Liu,  who frequently borrows our kitchen to make food during their aggressive study sessions at our apartment. Although this is a “College Eats” recipe, it’s definitely “College Eats”: Advanced Edition. It’s an easy recipe, but deep frying can be a challenge, lesbehonest.  Continue reading “College Eats: Taiwanese Popcorn Chicken!”

The final result with a side of corn and some roasted broccoli

Cooking fish can be a little intimidating, and if i’m being honest, I generally avoid cooking fish if at all possible. Fortunately salmon is super easy to make, and one of the first dishes I attempted when I decided to implement more clean eating into my life! This recipe is one I just threw together with things I had in my apartment, so I highly encourage people to get creative with their seasoning!  Continue reading “Healthy Eats: Foil Baked Lemon-Pepper Salmon”

not the greatest picture, but only because we were all too aggressively hungry and excited to bother with photos
My diet did a complete 180 when I went to college. Although I was living off my mother’s pre-packed food for a majority of my first quarter in school, that quickly tapered off as I visited home less and I was reduced to eating a lot of junk food, fast food, and frozen aisle food. The fact that I’d been forced into a relatively healthy lifestyle for most of my childhood and adolescence, this newfound freedom to eat whatever and whenever I wanted did quite a number on me as well.

Thank goodness for Potatoes. I don’t know how I would have made it through my first year of college without these beautiful, amazing spuds of deliciousness. Potatoes were my #1 food freshman year because 1. they’re amazingly tasty 2. they’re dirt cheap and 3. they’re almost impossible to mess up! Continue reading “College Eats: Sausage & Potato Hash”

Summer Breaks

IMG_7255I love summer break! Well, in theory I love summer break. Which is why I love this comic by Sarah Andersen so much, because every single summer I’ve ever had since I left home for college has literally consisted of me melting into my couch and staring at my computer with my mouth slightly open for like 14 straight hours. Every time I showered became me changing out of my pajamas into my another set of pajamas 😅 Continue reading “Summer Breaks”
