I’m Emily and welcome to my food blog!
After completing my first year of college (woohoo!), I felt deprived of sleep, sunlight, and…good food. Let’s be honest, the food they served in our freshmen cafeteria was less than mediocre – it quickly got repetitive and tasteless. Since I was on the unlimited meal plan and I didn’t have easy access to a kitchen, that cafeteria was my main source of “nourishment”. The only reliable foods we could count on were the fries, pizza, and Lucky Charms (sooo healthy!). Which is why as soon as I got home, I was eager to cook, bake, boil, chop, and of course, eat. During my 3 1/2 months of summer, I cooked with my mom as often as I possibly could. During my sophomore year, I had the freedom to cook a lot more with a kitchen in my dorm suite. Now, I am a senior living off-campus in a rowhouse with my good friends. We have a huge kitchen, which has inspired me to cook more sophisticated foods that require more preparation, longer cooking times, and can be saved as leftovers for later in the week. Despite venturing into a more challenging cooking niche, I am still trying to keep my recipes as simple and delicious as possible.
I love to cook and bake because I am always amazed by the end result, something delicious and beautiful is created from an assortment of ingredients when combined. The goal of this blog is to share with other college students simple, healthy recipes that they can make under the burdens and stresses of school and time management. Most of the recipes require very few ingredients and little preparation!
Favorite foods: dumplings (I crave Asian food all the time), chocolate, berries, almonds, Nutella, pancakes
I never thought I’d start a blog but I’m super excited to share and document all the foods that I make. Also, there definitely are not enough food blogs out there, right…? On a side note, I apologize to my friends and family that have to wait before every meal while I frantically take photos of the food from every possible angle and lens.
Hope you enjoy my photographs and recipes!
