Better Noodles for Any Dish

The thicker the noodle, the happier your tummy.

Better Noodles for Any Dish

When we think of Southern dumplings, the first element that stands out is "Southern." Dumplings seem to only be used with gravy and chicken but there are tons of other and better ways they can be used.

Anything that requires a noodle would do better with the chunks of noodles that are considered "Southern." I mean, bread is the best thing to happen to mankind. How would more, chunkier noodle NOT do a dish well?

Replace Your Pasta Noodles

When eating any Italian dish, the pasta is the center of the dish. But what if that pasta was bigger and better? With "spaghetti and meatballs," you could literally have "noodle balls and meatballs." That's so much more interesting!

Add Them to a Soup

The whole childhood canon revolves around chicken noodle soup. Recreate your elementary school lunch with a more high class-vibed soup catered to those who's favorite part of chicken noodle soup was always the noodle. Better yet, it doesn't matter what kind of soup you're eating (broth, tomato, tortilla, cream, chowder, bean, ect.). Dumplings go with anything!

Replace Your Toast

You know how eggs always go good with a crisp piece of toast? What if your toast was a kind, little ball of goodness that could be eaten in the same forkful of your morning eggs? Not only would the dumplings go well, but they can be spiced and flavored with whatever you enjoy.

Have I gotten your attention? Here's the perfect recipe for the standard dumpling!

1 Serving // Prep Time: 8 minutes // Cook Time: 5 minutes

Dough Ingredients:

  • 1 large egg
  • 6 tablespoons flour


  1. In small pot, boil water.
  2. In a small bowl, wisk egg and flour together.
  3. With fork, scoop flour mixture into boiling water in one inch dimes.
  4. Let boil for five minutes, without a top.
  5. Drain water and top with herbs and cheese of your liking.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
