Ughh, Cooking

I have been learning lately that I need to learn how to cook. Since I am in college and live off campus in an apartment I buy most of my food. I do have a meal plan and eat on campus when I can, but there really aren't many healthy options and the food can really become repetitive.

Last night I decided to go online in search for some healthy recipes that I could whip up in my very outdated kitchen with my less than stellar cooking skills. Because I went home to visit my parents this weekend I knew I didn't want to make anything that couldn't easily transport back to school.

I decided on a fattoush salad recipe that sounded easy and Delicious.

I didn't want to make as much as the recipe was calling for so I scaled back on some things but it ended up coming out really well. I am so thankful to have food already made it to take back with me for the week.

I have a hard time getting to the grocery store during the week so I am thinking about coming up with a recipe or two and shopping and then making them over the weekends so I will be set for the week.

What are your favorite recipes? I could really use some ideas!


  1. That salad looks amazing! One of my favorite things to cook is pizza. I just buy fresh dough at the grocery store or at an Italian market and throw tons of veggies, pesto or tomato sauce, and cheese on it. It is healthier to make it than to order it out and the leftovers are great for lunch!

  2. a couple weeks ago i made chik tortilla soup and it was so delicious with the cold weather lately/lasted the entire week!
