5 Simple Delicious Recipes To Try

5 Simple Delicious Recipes To Try

We all like food; satisfy your craving with these simple recipes!

All my lovely college students and people who love to cook, here are five easy recipes for you to try! I am definitely planning on trying them out myself!

1. Chicken Ranch Wrap

This delicious little wrap is super easy to make in ten minutes. You only need five ingredients! Two cups of cooked chicken breasts, a fourth of a cup of cilantro (optional), a fourth of a cup of Hidden Valley ranch, about four, eight inch tortillas, and half a cup of mozzarella cheese. First, cook your chicken! Then, place one half cup of chicken into each tortilla with one tablespoon of ranch, two tablespoons of cheese, and one tablespoon of cilantro. Fold the tortillas into a tight burrito then cook the wraps for one to two minutes on each side, or until crispy and golden, on a pan or grill that is coated with a light layer of oil or cooking spray. After that, they're ready to enjoy!

2. Beef Noodle Stir Fry

For this one, you'll need soy sauce, beef broth, brown sugar, four cloves of garlic (or use a teaspoon of garlic salt/powder), ginger, cornstarch, boneless sirloin steak, linguini noodles, canola oil (small bottle if possible), bell pepper of choice (I used orange), onion, carrots, broccoli, cabbage, and sesame seeds. First you will need to mix up the sauce mixture and have the sirloin cut into thin strips. For the sauce, mix two-thirds cup of soy sauce, two tablespoons of brown sugar, two-thirds cup of beef broth, minced cloves of garlic (4), and two teaspoons of ginger in a small mixing bowl. Put half of this mixture into a gallon-sized Ziploc bag then add the sliced beef. Press out as much air as you can, then let it refrigerate for at least two hours before you cook. With the remaining mixture, add one teaspoon of cornstarch, stir until smooth, cover and then place in the refrigerator until you use it. After a few hours, prepare the noodles according to the package, and while the noodles cook, heat two teaspoons of oil in a large skillet to cook up the steak slices. Get rid of the excess marinade. Stir-fry until brown, then remove and set aside. Use the rest of the oil in the skillet to stir-fry peppers, onion, carrots and broccoli until the onions become clear and soft. Add the cabbage and beef then cook until the cabbage is soft. When the noodles are done, drain and toss in with the beef/vegetable mix, adding the reserved sauce to the mix. Toss until those noodles are covered in the sauce, then top with sesame seeds and serve!

3. Cheeseburger Bake Casserole

For this recipe, you will need half a pound of ground beef, an eight count of Pillsbury biscuits, and one cup of colby and monterey jack cheese. First, preheat your oven to 350º Farenheit and grease your baking dish. In the meantime, brown and season your meat to how you like it then set it to the side. Open the can of biscuits, separate each one in half, then line the pan with the bottom half of each biscuit. Spread your ground beef over the top of the biscuits, and then sprinkle the cheese evenly over the top. Place the top half of each biscuit onto the cheese and bake for about thirty to thirty-five minutes, or until the top of the biscuits are golden brown. Slice them into pieces and enjoy with a little ketchup or mustard!

4. Doritos Taco Salad

We all love Doritos chips, so why not make a salad out of them? For this yummy bowl, you'll need a pound of ground beef, a cup of black beans, two Romaine lettuce hearts, one tomato, a cup of Catalina dressing, a packet of taco seasonings, half a cup of cheddar cheese, and then, of course, the doritos. First, brown and crumble the beef in a large skillet, drain the grease when done, and add the taco seasoning. Make sure to read the packet to add whatever water is called for on it. Stir until it comes to a boil then let it simmer on low for ten minutes. Remove from the heat and let it cool a bit while you put the chopped lettuce, black beans, tomato and cheese in a large bowl. Add the slightly cooled beef and mix it up so it's combined. When you're ready to serve it up, add your Doritos and dressing to the salad, then enjoy!

5. Cheesy Pepperoni Pizza Sticks

For this delicious recipe, you will need pepperoni, a half a teaspoon of garlic powder, half a teaspoon of dried parsley, a tube of Pillsbury pizza crust, two tablespoon of butter and ten mozzarella cheese sticks. Preheat your oven to 450º, spread the pizza dough out on a lightly greased baking sheet and cut it into 10 equal size rectangles. Arrange four pepperoni slices on each rectangle and top with mozzarella cheese stick. Roll the dough, enclosing the cheese and pepperoni into the dough. Melt the butter and add the garlic powder and dried parsley. Brush the pizza sticks with the mixture. Bake them for ten to twelve minutes or until golden brown, and voila! Enjoy with a side of marinara sauce! You can use other pizza toppings, such as pineapples, mushrooms, or olives!

How To Play 'New Girl's' True American Drinking Game

"It's 75% drinking, 20% Candy Land, and the floor is molten lava."

I think it's fair to say that anyone who watches "New Girl" knows about True American. This crazy, nonsense drinking game which pops up every so often throughout the seasons and first introduced in season one, episode 20.

The game, as described by "New Girl" character and fan-favorite Schmidt, is 75% drinking game and 20% Candy Land with a floor of molten lava.

The point of the game is for players to navigate through the Candy Land-like spaces to the "castle," which is a table in the center of the room that holds beer "pawns" and the "king" bottle. The first person to reach and sip from the bottle wins.

Here's how to play:

Step #1: Prepare the "castle"

First, set up your "castle." The castle is made up of beer "pawns" and the "king," a bottle filled with the alcohol of your choice.

The bottle should be in the middle of the table, surrounded by four lines of beer pawns. There is no exact number of beers necessary for each line of beer pawns. Choose any amount of beers that seems appropriate for the amount of players.

Step #2: Set up spaces

Set up spaces using pillows, chairs or any other objects players will be able to stand on. Place an equal amount of spaces around the table. You'll want about 5-8 spaces on each side, depending on the size of the room you're playing in.

Only four of these spaces should reach the castle, lining up with the parade of beer "pawns" and allowing players to take a beer pawn from the castle. For example, in the photo above, each of the chairs touch a corner of the table at the end of the line of beer pawns. Therefore, these are two of the four special spaces that allow players to take a beer. Unlike the pillows pictured, which are just regular spaces that the players can use to move around.

Step #3: Pick teams

Teams are optional. To pick teams, all of the players will place a certain number (1 to 5) of fingers against their forehead on the count of three.

Any players who hold up the same number are a team. Unmatched players can team up as needed or simply pair up with the person standing closest to them.

Step #4: Begin

Begin with a shotgun "tip-off" to determine which player goes first.

The winner of this shotgunning contest will yell, "One, two, three...JFK!" to announce the official beginning of the game. All players will enthusiastically respond, "FDR!" then quickly grab a beer pawn from the castle and run to any space they wish to start at, excluding for the four special spaces that reach the castle.

Step #5: Make moves

The winner of the shotgunning contest has earned the first turn. From then on, the order of turns will move in a clockwise rotation. During each turn, the player will move one space toward the castle and choose to play one of the following mini-games.

Mini-game No. 1: The player whose turn it is will count to three then all players will place a certain number (1-5) of fingers on their forehead. Any player who selects a number no one else selected can move ONE space.

Mini-game No. 2: The player whose turn it is will recite the beginning of a famous American quote. The first player to complete the quote can move TWO spaces.

Mini-game No. 3: The player whose turn it is will name two famous American people, places, or things. The first player to identify what the two have in common can move THREE spaces.

For example, say it's your turn. You will move one space then choose one of the three mini-games. You and all of the players will participate in that game, and the winner will move accordingly. After this, your turn is over and it's the next player's turn (in the original clockwise rotation).

Step #6: "Play on, playa."

Continue playing by these rules until one lucky winner reaches the bottle and sips from its royal glass.

The bottle cannot be opened until every last pawn is removed from the castle. Any players who fail to keep at least one beer in hand, who accidentally end up with more than three beers in hand, or who touch the lava are immediately disqualified. Disqualified players can rejoin the game by shotgunning a beer.


You are now able to impress all of your "New Girl"-loving friends with knowledge of the workings of the epic True American drinking game. Know your limits, drink responsibly, and enjoy!
