Do What’s Proper [ReadyU Conquer This List]

I love to cook, and when I'm at school I miss having a real kitchen. You know, a kitchen that's stocked with everything you need, is clean, and has plenty of counter space. Not a cramped, dirty kitchen that you share with a bunch of other college students and that may or may not be growing toxic mold. And by “may or may not”, I mean definitely.

5 Foods That Set The Mood

As a lover of all things yummy, I am all about foods to help people get in the mood for some sexy times. If nothing else, it's an excuse to eat something delicious before you..well...eat something delicious. Okay, so that was a bad joke, but on a date - I'm going to make sure my guy orders something that will get him excited, so that we can go home and burn off all the calories.

Fresh and Tasty Pear and Prosciutto Appetizer [Intro to Cooking]

If there is one thing that you need to know about me, it is that I love pork in all forms. Prosciutto is one of my favorites, second only to thick cut bacon. Even better is any way that I can combine it with the season's freshest fruits and vegetables.

Intro To Cooking: Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

What's better than any dish that can go alongside a margarita? Nothing. That's probably why Mexican dishes are my favorite. Not to mention the plethora of cheesy goodness.

Intro to Cooking: Garlic Chicken with White Wine Sauce

I love to cook. I find it so relaxing and fun – it's one of the best stress relievers for me. But when I'm really busy, I tend to stick to the same few recipes. And that gets boring. This week, I decided to try something new: garlic chicken with white wine sauce.

Web Spy: Foodily

I've always been a food lover, but it wasn't until I moved out on my own that I really developed a fondness for cooking. I'm still only a beginner, so I love trying out new recipes to practice my technique. Lucky for be, the internet is a wealth of information and I've discovered tons of great recipe sites on the web.

5 Life Skills High Schools Should be Teaching Seniors

Here's something you probably already know...high school students aren't exactly happy with their education. At least that's what Jezebel is telling us. Apparently high school students feel like their education is not preparing them enough for college.

Intro to Cooking: Peanut Butter Noodles

Peanut butter. Who doesn’t love to eat it on a spoon in front of the TV the stuff? Ever since we were little kids we ate peanut butter cookies, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and if your mom really loved you, those peanut butter crackers that came in the plastic wrappers

One-Month Challenge: All Cooking, All The Time, Week 3

I’m generally a pretty positive person; not one to harp on the small potatoes problems in my life (like how sick I am of eating - and cooking - said small potatoes). And while I still stand by a lot of the fabulous benefits that led me to take on this challenge in the first place - I really am becoming a domesticated w-o-m-a-n (roar!) and I’m saving lots of cashola - this week brought up some obstacles in this “genius” idea of a four-week challenge.

Intro to Cooking: White Bean Spread

Eating food is an important part of everyone’s life. But for college students, it can really be a challenge considering we are working with some serious restrictions -- like time, money, and materials. This week, I’m going to introduce you to one of my staples of college life: canned white beans. I first discovered them about two years ago, when I was looking for an easy way to get more protein in my diet.

One-Month Challenge: All Cooking, All the Time

Truth be told, after living in my apartment for over two years, a friend had to teach me how to use my dishwasher after a party I had. Yes, you just read that correctly. Two years. Never used my dishwasher. If only my mom (and world's best cook) could see me now; she'd be BEAMING with pride.

10 SAT Questions That Would Actually Predict College Success

It's SAT season and you know what that means: high school juniors are buckling down and getting ready to take "the most important test of their lives," the test that will determine whether or not they get into college, the test that will supposedly predict how well they will do there. Now, I don't know about you ladies, but as a seasoned college student I have to say I think that is a load of ridiculous.

Web Spy: Bake It in a Cake

At almost any given time of day, you can turn on the TV and find a show about cake on. Whether it's Cupcake Wars, Ace of Cakes, D.C. Cupcakes or Cake Boss, all these cake-themed shows only add to our society's reputation of being obsessed with food. The internet is just another outlet to fuel this obsession.

Intro to Cooking: Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bars

Since we all snacked so healthily last week, I think we deserve a treat. And there is no better treat than cheesecake. Unless, of course, that cheesecake also involves peanut butter cookie dough. I know, right?

One Month Challenge: Dining In, Week 4

Thankfully, this week was extra busy for me. Between work and holiday shopping (I’m one of those last minute shoppers), I didn’t really have much time to even want fast food. That being said, I can’t say I had much time to cook either. So I enjoyed lots of leftovers, made by my wonderful mama.

Don’t get me wrong, I love some of the effects of this challenge; I am proud that I can cook some delicious and edible meals, and the effects it’s had on my wallet have been extraordinary.

One Month Challenge: Dining In, Week 2

After raiding my cabinets this week, and realizing we had, like, no food, I decided I would have to go food shopping if I was going to survive this no restaurant month. Being that I’m an impulse buyer, I also “attempted” to make a grocery list. And while I bought a majority of items off my list, I found myself coming home with lots of comfort foods: Easy Mac, ramen, spaghetti.
