5 Pinterest Recipes That Actually Work

Confession #1: I am a Pinterest addict.

Confession #2: My Pinterest recipes have a less-than-stellar success rate.

I don't know what it is. Maybe it's due to less-than-clear instructions, a different set of taste buds, or simply bad recipes. Anyways, it seems that when I pull recipes from Pinterest, they have the tendency to flop the first time around.

With that in mind, here are five Pinterest recipes that have been crash-tested by yours truly and actually deserve the title "Pinterest-worthy."

1. These amazingly perfect waffles.

They're fluffy, thick, lightly sweet, and buttery. If you're feeling extra fancy, sprinkle some mini chocolate chips or cinnamon and clove into the batter.

If you don't have buttermilk on hand, just substitute one cup of milk mixed with one tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar for every cup of buttermilk used. Mix the two together and let sit for at least five minutes.

2. This healthy and yummy dinner.

Lean meat, colorful veggies, and flavorful seasonings make this roasted one-pan dinner delicious, while the quick prep time and the limited amount of dishes make it convenient. Customize it by changing up the spices and veggies to suit your mood.

3. A creamy curry recipe that will fill you up.

The combination of curry paste and canned coconut milk creates the perfect amount of heat, tempered by the luscious coconut milk (it truly is luscious – I can and do eat it with a spoon). Serve it with rice or flatbread, and you have an easy-to-make exotic dish.

4. Carrot cake muffins!

Okay, okay. So they are actually called "Healthy Applesauce Carrot Muffins," but I think that "Carrot Cake Muffins" is a bit more accurate. They are sweet, they are moist, and they are the perfect option for breakfast, snacks, or even dessert. PRO TIP: make a glaze of milk, cinnamon, and powdered sugar to drizzle on top with a sprinkle of coconut. Your taste buds will thank you.

5. This classy Earl Grey tea cake.

A cake so posh that you'll pick up a British accent after just one bite! Okay, not really, but this tea-flavored cake is truly a delicious, classy showstopper!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
