Boozy Frozen Strawberry Lemonade

The Hangry Collegian

Happy hump day and here’s to another #HangryHappyHour! Because happy hour is the only time when the hanger temporarily retreats.

I like fruity mixed drinks. Specifically anything mixed with strawberries. They’re my favorite fruit. *sassy girl emoji* This boozy and fruity drink is a cold mixture of strawberries, lemons, Malibu rum, and club soda. They are perfect for an upcoming sunny spring day or to just quickly whip up any day. If you don’t specifically like tequila, this drink is a great alternative to a classic strawberry lime margarita.

You Will Need:

  • 2 cups ice cubes, crushed
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/4 cup club soda
  • 2 tbsp lemonade concentrate
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 oz Malibu Black Rum

Directions:

  1. Place the crushed ice cubes in a blender. Add strawberries, club soda, lemonade concentrate, lemon juice, and rum. Blend until thickly mixed together.
  2. Serve immediately in a margarita glass.

Drink responsibly my friends.

Spicy Cilantro Chicken Wings – Recipe

IMG_8456

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT’S MARCH?! Sorry to start this post by yelling, but seriously. C’mon. What the heck is happening with time these days?

Anyway! Happy Thursday, friends. We’re almost to the weekend, and I am filling mine to the brim with fun things. I hope you are too, and that you save some time in there to eat these bomb wings. A few years ago, a guy from Ghana asked me if I REALLY knew what spicy was. My response: “yeah, duh. I’m hispanic”… AND HE LAUGHED IN MY FACE. He was pretty new to the United States, so I’m gonna give him the benefit of the doubt and say he didn’t mean to be rude, but I was appalled! The next day he brought me some chicken and it was some of the spiciest shit I have ever tasted in my whole life. He wouldn’t tell me exactly…

Tuna Avocado Pasta with Sun Dried Tomatoes

Things I've Learned

Okay, so when it comes to cooking, my most favorite thing to make is pasta. My mom taught me that you can make pasta out of pretty much anything. So whenever I have leftovers or I have food that I have no idea what to do with, I throw them all together and make pasta!

Today was an example. I had two avocados that I had not used and I bought it like three weeks ago. Luckily, I had kept it in the fridge so it was still nice and green in the inside. I was craving for some guacamole, but didn’t have chips and then I remembered that a few days ago, I came across a Creamy Avocado Pasta recipe.

Though the recipe sounded amazing, I had a few problems:

1.) I don’t have a food processor

2.) I don’t have basil

3.) We do have a Vitamix in the apartment…

Today’s Lunch – Fast and Easy! And Delicious!

Healthy Happy Beautiful

Last night I made a batch of home-made bread, with the intend of making sandwiches for today’s lunch (hubby loves home-made bread with Nutella – yummy!). However, my plan was foiled when I realized that I forgot to add the salt. So this morning I woke up and decided I would whip up something really fast since I hate wasting money on buying lunch when the fridge is full (no, really, it irks my soul). If you’re in need of quick lunch that’s ready in less than 30 minutes and have the following ingredients on hand (but you can most certainly improvise), then follow me on this delicious journey that I’ve named “Chicken and Spinach Bow Tie Pasta.” Creative, huh? 🙂

ChickenPastaWhat you’ll need:

  • Chicken (I used two breasts, cut into medium sized chunks)
  • Spinach (I used half a bag of frozen spinach since that’s what I had on hand)

Slow Cooker Applesauce

Flatter that Fanny fitness

Everyone loves a good crockpot recipe am I right? This is great for those of you that have kids and need something easy to make!

INGREDIENTS
  • 3 lbs. apples (Fuji, McIntosh, gala,pinklady, etc.)
  • ½ cup water

What we love about this recipe is that it’s just about as easy as it gets– the only ingredients are apples and water, and all you have to do is throw them in a slow cooker. You don’t even have to peel the apples, since leaving on the peel boosts the overall nutrition content. Once cooked, the peels become ultra soft and are easily blended into the resulting applesauce. If you have one of those handy apple corer/slicer tools, the prep work takes less than 10 minutes!

Slow Cooker Applesauce (No Sugar Added)
Makes about 40 ouncesappIngredients:

3 lbs. apples (Fuji, McIntosh, Jonathan, etc.)
1/2 cup water

Directions:

Day 8 – Poultry

cookwithsonia

Today was no cake walk.

Today was Poultry Part 1.

Excited? Yes. I’ve never cooked with poultry before. And while I don’t eat it, our recipes looked awesome.

Nervous. Yes very.

Chef Chris Douglass (from Day 4 – Sauce) was back to lead us through our first butchering lesson.

The day started off quite mellow, with an in-depth discussion about birds – the different types, the way they are raised for eating, how they are humanely killed and prepared, and how they are purchased at restaurants.

FullSizeRender-21 Chef Douglass bones a chicken.

Chef Douglass slowly demonstrated how to bone a chicken, expertly carving his boning knife around the sinewy carcass to partition the thighs, drumsticks, breasts, wingetts, and drumettes. He showed us how to take hold the knee with our thumb and crack the hip bone at the ball-and-socket joint, so that we could find the right place…
