5 Fun, Easy, and Delicious Dishes That Will Save Your Twenties

As I’m reaching adulthood, I’m starting to realize that I enjoy routines and being a home-body much more than I thought. With having my own place, I’m noticing that these menial day-to-day tasks surprisingly help root me — and although obligatory — I’m starting to actually… enjoy them.

Blah. Enjoy laundry? Enjoy cooking? Enjoy sleeping early? Well, yeah! Mostly because I have to enjoy them, but also because I want to.

I’ve always loved baking but never really cared for actually cooking. I always found it much more stressful than anything else… Quick info about me, I’m a Grade-A multi-tasker with an extremely small attention span… so yeah, I’ve left many pots on they’re own to only end up burning rice, like who does that!?

Luckily, those days are long gone… (fingers crossed!)

But now that I’m away from home and in a completely different environment, there are some meals that bring me back to Miami like arroz con pollo or pan con bistec. And although I don’t know how to make the second one that well, I make some mean arroz con pollo! Being away from comfort foods that our parents would make us can be hard, but I’m trying to see it as more of a challenge to learn how to master those meals and make my momma proud!

Sadly, not every evening calls for hours worth in the kitchen. Sometimes we’re a bit more rushed than we’d like to be or just not inspired. I totally get it. I’ve been there, literally yesterday I was too tired to cook and ended up just popping in some frozen steak fries and popcorn chicken in the oven and called it a day!

I must also say I’m blessed to have such a chill boyfriend. We’re always up for anything, and last night he knew I was exhausted so fries and frozen chicken it is! On the same token, I want to be inspired to cook awesome meals that are healthy and delicious but also easy ’cause your girl isn’t always the best in the kitchen. Of course, like many of us — Pinterest (and Youtube) is my go-to when I’m looking for meals to inspire me and before I ramble on for too long…

Here are my favorite, go-to easy dishes we should all have in our arsenal in our twenties.

Whether you’re trying to make it to Master Chef or find excitement with your meals – I’ve got you covered!

Bloggin’ on a Budget? Here Are Some Free Resources & Strategies to Being a Badass Blogger

As you may be able to tell, I just started my blog. Within less than a week of starting and adding different social media strategies, I have already seen improvements. However, these improvements didn’t just come to me, I had to do the research. I’m not lying when I say I learn something new each and every day.

Being someone who has a full-time job and just got out of college, I understand how it feels to not to have time to do what you enjoy. As I write this, it is nearing midnight and although it’s way past my bed-time, I made a commitment when I started on my blog and I know I have to follow through.

Maybe it’s due to the fact that I’m still stuck in the mentality of a student, but lately, I’ve just been wanting to learn. 

The more I got into researching blogging techniques and strategies it finally just *clicked* and I knew this was something I wanted to do and best of all – something I knew I could do.

And you know the best part? So could you.
