Food. Everybody loves it. For centuries we've been swapping recipes, sharing secrets and baking for fun. The internet's newest fad seems to be revolved around the world's same love of food. Thousands of foodies across the globe have taken to the internet with quick, compressed videos of their various recipes being put to life. It has allowed for many tasty adventures for all. Recipes from the internet can be seen anywhere from a dinner party, a tailgate, or a casual movie night with friends. Though, the actual process of cooking doesn't always go as smooth the videos portray. Here are 10 things that happen when you and your college roommate try an internet recipe:

Chick-fil-A, I love you.
Truett Cathy, I owe you my life.
If you love Chick-fil-A, you truly have withdrawals when you're away from it. You may suffer from these symptoms, just like I do.
1. No other breakfast will compare to CFA's.
2. No other fast food joint has hash brown's like CFA's.
3. When you go on vacation, you type in Chick-fil-A to see if there is one nearby.
4. If there isn't, you eat it as soon, I am talking, like, the second, you get back from vacation.
5. You truly don't understand how people "get tired of Chick-fil-A"
6. Besides the occasional change up on Sunday's, CFA is always your number choice of fast food.
7. You legitimately crave it more on Sunday's.
8. Nothing on the menu seems gross to you.
9. Yet, you seem to get the same thing every time you go.
10. Their ice cream is literally the b o m b.
11. You defend CFA to any and every hater.

If you're a breakfast foodie like I am, you know that is an absolute priority to find the most popular breakfast spots despite the city you may be in. You don't want to visit the touristy and basic restaurants that everyone else goes to, but instead, you are determined to uncover the locations that are the best of the best. Most foodies will go to great lengths to discover these places. As a University of Kentucky student and major foodie, I have searched all over Lexington to find my favorite places to visit on Saturday and Sunday mornings. This took my entire first semester and many trips to the ATM, but today, I am now blessed to say that I am a regular at all 4 of these incredible breakfast spots.
1. The Great Bagel
The Great Bagel is one of my all-time favorite restaurants to visit on Sunday mornings. The restaurant offers a variety of bagel sandwiches and freshly squeezed orange juice, and it makes for the perfect early morning start to a day filled with homework or relaxation.
2. Chocolate Holler
Though not a true restaurant, Chocolate Holler is one of the most popular coffee shops near the University of Kentucky. Because it is only a 3-minute drive from campus, Chocolate Holler is always buzzing with UK students who come to socialize or study. The coffee shop is most well known for its chocolaty drinks and the music is great there, too!
3. Stir Krazy
Stir Krazy is a local smoothie bar down the street that serves protein shakes, smoothies, and tea. Though It only consists of these three beverages, the shakes at Stir Krazy are enough to fill you up for breakfast or lunch. Each shake or smoothies range from 200 to 250 calories and serves as the perfect energizer before a workout or a filling recovery drink after a workout.
4. La Madeleine
La Madeleine is a French breakfast and lunch cafe conveniently located on campus (and only a 30-second walk from my dorm). Their breakfast is served all day long and their croissants are to die for. I highly recommend building your own omelet for the most fulfilling experience. Not to mention, their iced caramel macchiatos are a great refresher on the side.
No matter which city, state, or country I am currently in, I make it my mission to eat as a local would. In Lexington, Kentucky, these four breakfast spots are guaranteed provide you with a plethora of different types of food to get you through even the worst cases of morning hunger. Though these places are my current favorites, I am now looking forward to containing the search for more breakfast restaurants, cafes, and juice bars throughout my next four years in this city.
