Recent Eats

Whoa, I haven’t done a “recent eats” post since June. Not cool. But hey, I’ve never claimed to be a food blogger ;)

Here’s some delicious food I’ve managed to take pictures of lately!

Mixed nuts. My favorite nuts in the package are the cashews and pecans, and my least favorite are the almonds.

Breaded spicy tofu.

Cherry danish from Panera Bread.

Celery with peanut butter, marshmallows, and chocolate chips. A new spin on “ants on a log.”

Microwaved red velvet cupcakes. I linked to the recipe in this post.

KIND and Luna Bars. These are so easy to bring to school and munch on during class when I get hungry.

Nutella! Two women at my church gave me samples of Nutella they received in the mail. I guess everyone knows I love Nutella?!

Happy Monday! Today was my first day back to school post-spring break. Bummer. The good news is that I’m halfway through the semester. Huzzah!

Here are some vacation eats:

dinnerRoom service! Veggie skewers with pita chips and black bean hummus, and an Asian chicken salad with ginger dressing. The best part of this dinner was definitely the pita chips + hummus.

IMG_5034An appetizer of spiced shrimp with mango curry sauce. I love curry.

eatinginbedI had to include this one… my mom ate her room service meal sitting cross legged in her bed like a little kid. Too funny.

postcardinnDinner from PCI Bar & Grill. I got collard greens, corn on the cob, and herb roasted chicken. I loved that my drink came in a mason jar. Very cute.

IMG_5081Dunkin’ Donuts regular coffee with cream.

salmonSalmon and berry salad.

IMG_5103More salmon!

Other (non-vacation) eats:

sugarcookiesJimmy’s younger brother and I baked homemade sugar cookies with vanilla butter cream frosting. I’m pretty close with Jimmy’s brother because we’re actually closer in age than Jimmy and I lol. Awkward life.

suagrcookiesMore sugar cookies. I need to get a life.

puppychowI made a big batch of puppy chow and gave some to Jimmy (with a little note… and yes, my nickname is Stitch…) after I got home from Florida.

I have two recipes to share, but those will come in another post!

Here are some of my recent eats:

chineseSemi-homemade General Tso’s chicken. I just breaded the chicken with flour and fried it in oil for a few minutes, and then added enough sauce to coat the chicken. Easy peasy.

IMG_4944A little veggie plate + hummus for snacking.

IMG_4967A fellow classmate was fundraising for THON, so I had to show my support ;)

IMG_4995Black eyed pea stew! I found black eyed peas on sale at the grocery store for 50 cents, so I researched some soup recipes and made this stew. The only thing I changed was that I replaced the kielbasa with sausage. It was great!

IMG_4993Check out the new Pop-tart flavor! I tried the limited edition marshmallow hot chocolate flavor in this post and the strawberry flavor in this post. Red velvet? Highly recommended.

That’s all the pictures I have of food for ya.


In my next post, I have a lot (of random things) to share, including the fact that my family got a new kitten! FelixMeet Felix!

Don’t worry, I’m still giving lots of love and kisses to Lola, the most shiny dog in the world. I need to learn her secret for shiny hair… lolaI can’t imagine life without animals! They’re such a blessing.


Have a great weekend!

Hey there! Man, school has been keeping me busy lately. I think I’m still getting used to the new semester. Friday wraps up week number two for Penn State. It’s weird to think that some universities don’t start until Monday or Tuesday next week.

Here are some semi-recent eats:mintchipbrowniesMint chip brownies

Peanut butter granola and 15 bean soup made with Kim!

cookiesWhite chocolate chip cookies made with Jimmy <3

snackA snack of apple slices and peanut butter to dip them in!

biscuitsBaking powder biscuits. I found and used my grandma’s recipe, so that was fun and special. (Sorry I look so rough in the picture… that was the day after I had the flu #strugcity. My goofy face shows how excited I was to be able to bake and eat again!)

PicMonkey Collage3A giant salad and an apple pie that Jimmy and I made for a church gathering.

bananabreadBanana bread made with Hannah! She’s becoming a great little baker.


That’s all I’ve got! I’m headed off to work in a few minutes. Time to motivate people and make em’ sweat!

Here are some recent (and tasty) eats:French toast! With maple syrup :)

Butternut squash soup. Perfect for fall.

Honey baked tofu.

Banana zucchini bread. A delicious way to use up extra zucchini and bananas.

Biscuit chicken pot pie. Recipe to come? Possibly.. if anyone is interested.


That’s all I have for recent eats. My eats haven’t been too adventurous lately. Lots of quick stuff like Lara Bars, fruit, and leftovers = what I pack for lunch/snacks at school. Why yes, I pack my lunch and I’m in college. It saves $$!

Speaking of school, I’m off to study some Spanish. I have my first Spanish test of the semester on Wednesday. EEK. 

Adiós ;)

Recent eats


Here are some recent eats:

Pumpkin waffles

Quiche. Eggs + milk + basil + salt & pepper + red onion + green pepper + zucchini + feta.

Cucumbers from my garden and a random squash from my uncle. I think it’s called a starfish squash? No idea. It was good roasted though… nice & sweet!

Corn bread. Pretty much my favorite thing ever.

Avocado. It was only 99 cents! Has anyone had the avocado from Subway? It’s really good!

Overnight oats in a jar. I never thought I would hop onto this bandwagon, but it’s pretty tasty!

Chocolate Reese’s Pieces cookies. Recipe to come soon :D

Sunflower milk. So creamy.

Beef & vegetable bowls. Recipe also to come soon.


Bible verse of the day:*

My next post will probably be an update on my tummy troubles. Bleh.

Now I’ll end with a happy picture…Lily :)

Oh, hey there!


To be honest, I don’t have many “recent eats” pictures. Why? Because I haven’t been taking pictures of my food lately… because I don’t feel like it. Sorry :)

Here’s the few food/drink pictures that I have:Iced soy chai latte

Lots of vegetables

Tuna salad with crackers

“Ants on a log” with peanut butter and Nutella!

Kona coffee… From Hawaii!! Jimmy and I have a favorite server at Eat N’ Park. Our favorite server went to Hawaii on vacation and remembered how much we love coffee, so he brought us some back. Made my day.

Seriously… so good.

The other food I have been obsessed with lately?Watermelon! I didn’t have a picture, so I drew one :).


Now, I shall leave you with a picture of Eddie and Lola:*

For me, it would have to be dinner from last night: grilled salmon, roasted sweet potatoes, and a big salad with honey mustard dressing :)
