    In College, Brunch Means 2 p.m.

    This is the pancake mix we used

    Pretty explanatory, follow the directions on the box, flip when the pancake starts to bubble.

    Or else this happens…. char-cake…

    Now for the perfect scrambled eggs! Mix your eggs in a bowl with milk until the mixture is light yellow and the consistency of a runny loogy. I add pepper and garlic salt for extra yum. Today we put buttermilk in with our eggs too, just to see if it would taste good.

    Pour the eggs in the pan and scape the bottom of the pan when they start to bubble. Keep scraping about every 40 seconds, there will be liquid that will boil off when they are almost done- this is totally normal. When they are finished they should be nice and fluffy. We put cheese on ours, I usually do some rooster sauce with tomatoes and avocados.

    Yummy!! (And yes last nights makeup is still on my face)

    Darrell was all about the eggs!

    Watching the Breakfast club eating Breakfast at… 3. Perfect!!

    2 cans diced tomatoes
    2 cans corn, 1 drained

    Put everything in a pot and bring to a boil. Garnish with sour cream and cheddar cheese. Eat with tortillia chips.

    Thank you for this Fast Fiesta Soup recipe Kate! It is so delicious and Darrell always licks the bowl clean when we make it.

    "I Wish That I Could Make A Cake Out Of Rainbows & Smiles"

    Nina, and Kavin and I decided to have a chill night in after attending a friend’s cookout.  Mean Girls and FUNFETTI it is!  I’m not going to bother explaining this one because it’s just from the box.  But here are some fun pictures!

    A random suggestion


    Next time you make brownies, brew some blueberry coffee and use it in place of the water in the directions/recipe. It gives a really nice, subtle flavor.

    TOTALLY trying this!  Good idea, Nate!

    Secondly, Irish car bomb cupcakes. I've had this recommended and I want to try it myself so I'd like to see how it goes over there for you.

    This recipe seems good: http://www.rachelleb.com/2010/02/25/irish-car-bomb-cupcakes/ but you really SHOULD use Jameson instead of Jack Daniel's.

    Thirdly, why does Darrel not like your cookies? What a picky snob.


    Firstly, as roomates we consider eachother to be equals in the kitchen as well as on the reclining couch.

    Secondly, delicious sounding recipe however you have failed to remember that we are some broke ass college students who have no money with which to make a purchase of Jameson. Also, neither of us drinks whiskey (Bad expieriences) But perhaps we can find a friend to give us the required amount.

    Darrel possesses unique and refined tastes, unfourtunatly the cookies were just not up to his standards.

    Thank you for the question and suggestion! Keep them coming!

    May your dinner be warm and the roadkill fresh,

    Cam and Nina

    The Influence of Travel Channel

    Hello fellow foodies,

    Nina here, I just got back from WA and am ready to do some scrumpcious nom posts!

    So Ill start with our first restaurant review:

    Where- The Crab Pot, Seattle WA

    Why- I saw it on travel channel, Samantha brown went there and Ive been dying to have some real pacific seafood.

    What- A big bucket of mussels, clams, dungeness crab, snow crab, shrimp, corn and red potatos all steamed together and lightly seasoned.

    (Can I point out the face the man behind me is making? Too funny…)

    We ordered the 2 person quantity which was plenty for 3, especially since they serve sourdough bread before your food comes. Overall, my first crab experience was AMAZING. Im not a fan of lobster- too fishyish- and was worried I wouldn’t like the crab but it was so lightly flavored and had such a tender consistency it would be impossible to dislike. The corn and shrimp were a little overcooked in my opinion but still delicious, the seasonings and seafood flavor did wonders for for the corn! My father really enjoyed the clams and mussels, I’m not a fan. I topped off the meal with Alaskan light ale (NOM). I rate The Crab Pot an 8/10- it was perfect for someone from away looking to have a classic Seattle experience.

    ….or just mango banana smoothies. 

    I (Cameron) got my appendix out last week and because I have a lot of lovely people in my life, I received several get-well baskets filled with various goodies—a good portion of which was fruit.  And we all know the most delicious way to eat fruit is in the form of a smoothie.  Mango banana it is!


    • 1 Mango
    • 2 bananas
    • 10 oz orange juice
    • 6 oz vanilla yogurt

    First things first: cutting the fruit.  Now, cutting this mango was the hardest thing I’ve done today, and I had math class this morning.  I wanted to make it pretty like this:

    but instead, my results just looked like this:


    What does Darrel think?


    sidenote: my parents will be thrilled to know that the first thing I made in my new blender was actually smoothies, not “smoothies.”

    But we want cookies anyway!  We had peanut butter and chocolate chips.  So we googled “baking without butter” and discovered that you can sometimes substitute 3/4 cup oil (canola is best but we only had vegetable) for every 1 cup butter or margarine.  


    • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
    • 2 cups flour
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda WHOOPS DIDN’T HAVE THIS EITHER
    • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
    • 1 egg
    • 1 cup peanut butter (we used extra crunchy.  Again…that is what we had)
    • 1/2 bag mini chocolate chips

    Bake at 350° for about 30ish minutes.  We couldn’t really tell when they were done.


    Um? They’re definitely a weird texture…kind of grainy.  They stay hot for freaking EVER.  The flavor is decent—kind of like Reese’s…but I wouldn’t recommend dipping these in milk, as they might just disintegrate.  

    What does Darrel think?

    He can’t decide.

    Hello all, Nina and Cam comin’ atchya.  We are hilarious roommates in our senior and junior years respectively.  We can’t cook worth two shits, but we definitely try.  This blog will be an account of all the ridiculous things we try (and consequently fail) to create.  Who knows, maybe by the time we graduate we’ll make something edible.  


Two college roommates trying to make it in a world of Jif peanut butter and long range rifles.

If you have an idea of something we should try, write in our ask box!
