How I Study... in an Organized Way I'm super crazy about organization. I'm no where near OCD, but anyone who knows me knows that I'm all about things being in order. Perfect example: my closet is organized by type of clothing and then organized by color. I'll go through this step by step. Syllabi Let's start with the syllabi. Once an assignment, test, or reading has been finished, I highlight it so I know that it's done and I don't need to worry about it anymore. Planner My planner is my sidekick during the semester. My planner, much like everything else in my life, is color coordinated. Moving On...... Here's how I get my weekly assignments organized so I can do them: I like lists. I pick a color for each subject, and make a list on a piece of notebook paper, the Stickies on my laptop, and organize my syllabi with the corresponding color flag tags. I've got to stop writing this post and get back to making a dent in my massive pile of work due at the end of this week!
Asiago Mashed Potatoes and Broccoli Asiago Mashed Potatoes and Broccoli My husband has been away on a business trip for nine days, and while I surrendered early on to the fact that peanut butter sandwiches and cereal would be my new meals, that’s not been the case at all. I’ve had dinner with neighbors, gone out with friends, and cooked plenty for myself. One thing that I’ve made sure to do, though, has been comfort myself with a warm homemade meal. This delicious side dish is about as versatile as it gets, and is also a great way to get kids to scarf down some veggies!

Peel potatoes or leave skins on, and cut into 1/2-inch chunks. Add asiago cheese. Enjoy!
Killer Mac ’n’ Cheese — The Kitchen Alchemist Not to be confused with pasta bake (the British student favourite) mac ’n’ cheese is lazy luxury of the highest order. Making a good one in my book involves using lots of cheese, creating a rich and oozy sauce which is enhanced with a little English mustard and smoked paprika, and then cut through with a spot of vinegar. The result is a lightly smoky, peppery and rich cheese sauce with a bright and clean finish. All it then needs is a light breadcrumb topping. Et voila. This classic family recipe is a real treat, and being as it will warm your cockles good and proper, is great indulged in on chilly autumn and winter evenings. Blue cheese and a brown breadcrumb crispy top with seedsPancetta and tallegio cheeseCajun seasoning spikedCrispy chorizo and manchego cheeseSun-dried tomato and spinach Whether you choose to make yours classic or pimped, I hope you enjoy cooking and eating it for this months Bake Club challenge — and don’t forget to let me know what you think.
Simple Deep Dish Pizza Pie, pie, I made you a pie. A pie on the fly. Without any ryyyeee! Sorry. I have never really been a deep dish kind of girl. However, after recently getting the urge to go deep dish on you guys, I did a quick Facebook survey to see if you’d prefer something savory or sweet. Most deep dish pies involve some super buttery, complicated crust that I honestly don’t have the time or energy or desire to make. I like my crust to taste like crust, not a buttery dinner roll. Once you get past the complicated part of a deep dish pizza, namely the crust, it’s quite simple. You get a round pan or cast iron, and rub it with olive oil. Boom. This pie was SO SO good! Despite being butter free it tasted absolutely decadent thanks to the layers of cheese, sauce and roasted veggies. I could’ve eaten the whole thing, probably, except that my belly could only hold two small pieces. With a crust prepared ahead of time (or snagging a quality store-bought) this pie comes together in about 45 minutes. Serves: 4

DIY Ultimate Note-Taking Notebook This is sort of mid-range between what I do and a Moleskine. What I do: 1. 2. 2a. Cheaper than other systems, only takes a few minutes to accomplish, still includes removable paper for easy scanning, and no guilt for using a $20 notebook. I do this because I really can't justify the expense for note-taking. (I do carry a small Moleskine notebook, the cheap paper-bound one, for on-the-fly note taking).

Baked Buffalo Chicken Pasta Can you keep a secret? Last night I went to a karate slash pilates slash bootcamp-ish slash heart attack class. I know. Your face? Your expression you are wearing right now? Anyway. All I could think of during this class was cheese. After flinging myself through the front door following my uncoordinated attempt at unarmed combat and eating four handfuls of peanut butter stuffed pretzels (I hear they are excellent for muscle recovery. write that down.), it dawned on me that peanut butter pretzels do not a dinner make. Then I remembered the buffalo chicken mac sitting in the fridge and decided it qualified as a post-workout recovery meal. Uh… wait a minute. This is sort of like mac and cheese. But guess what? I don’t care what you call it. Baked Buffalo Chicken Pasta serves 4-6 1 pound pasta (I used whole wheat orecchiette) 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and cut into chunks 1 tablespoon butter 1 tablespoon flour 1 1/2 cups milk 1/3 cup buffalo wing sauce 1/3 cup panko bread crumbs
