Quick & Easy Recipes for a "SWEET Weekend!
Can we first start off by saying, "IT IS FRIDAY!" Yay! It has been one of those weeks! I don't know about you all, but if you were having a tough week also, cheer up and enjoy your weekend!
I decided with it being Friday, I wanted to do something a little random and fun for you ladies that is not necessarily only about fashion or makeup. I don't know about ya'll, but I love a simple and delicious recipe that does not take forever to make. I have had one of those weeks, where I think I may treat myself to some tasty food and just forget count any calories tonight!
Now, I will not lie to you all, I am young and do not have a ton of experience with cooking. So, what better way to learn and find new recipes than by browsing cooking videos online? I mean now a days, you can pretty much find out how to do just about anything online.
Here are a few fun videos I found that I thought some of you may enjoy. Do any of you ladies know of any simple and easy recipes that you would want to share with me? I am moving into a new house soon and cannot wait to experiment in the kitchen! Let me know if you have already tried some of these recipes out and whether they were a "win" or "epic fail" in your book. I love watching the videos by "Tasty" on Facebook. I don't know if you ladies have seen all of their recipes on your newsfeed lately, but they make everything look so simple, yet SO amazingly yummy! I also enjoy just browsing videos on Youtube as well! I will show you some of my favorites from this week!
So, on to the mouthwatering videos...
