Fried Rice 🍚

Fried Rice is a absolute favorite in my house! I personally dont care for fried foods but I have learned a healthier alternative that satifies the craving! It is very simple to make but requires a two day prep!

Steam your rice the day prior to cooking it! This is sworn to be the ultimate key of getting the rice perfect. I would even suggest adding spices at this time also. Rice will need to be refrigerated over night.

Once your rice has been prepped to be fried to the gawwwwds please wash all of your fresh ingredients with cool water.

Ingredients are so simple!

Brown Rice

Fried Rice Spice

Soy Sauce

Sesame Oil

Vegetable Oil

Green Onion

Yellow Onion

Green bell pepper and carrot/ pea mix are great optional adds!

Once all fresh ingredients are clean. Chop or dice for cooking.

Use the largest skillet you have and add a tablespoon of vegetable oil to heat. Once nice and hot add the rice and add spice if this hasn’t been done so. Add fresh ingredients at this time. Occasionally flip and turn the rice using a spatula. Let it fry for a minute or two before flipping while adding shakes of soy. If needed add light oil drops. How fried the rice should be is preferable.

Once rice is completely browned add sesame oil and stir. You don’t want to cook the rice in sesame oil from my experience and trying different recipes. It’s a great flavoùr addition!

Add soy , sweet and sour , and or red pepper! Enjoy!

It just looks scrumptious 😍

Homemade White Cake💕🍰🍴

Baking has become a creative outlet for me it’s art , therapy, and recreational. I have also become unenthused with traditonal foods. So being able to create and taste all in one has been nothing short of success, because success is how we measure it.

A few weeks ago I found myself craving cake but not just any cake. Homemade, fresh cake! Yes! Homemade!

White Cake with Homemade Vanilla Icing
  • 1 cup white sugar 
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¾ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil (optional)

Preheat Oven to 350.

Combine dry ingredients! Mix for even distrubution. Add eggs, then wet ingredients. 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil is optional and only to create moisture. This will be solely preference.

Grease and flour the baking pan. I reccomend a 9 x9 pan however a 13 x9 will do the job. Pour in cake batter to bake for 20-25 minutes. Cook time will be faster than boxed cake mix. I suggest periodically checking cake with a clean toothpick each time. Simply poke into the cake and remove until the toothpick comes out clean. Once cake has reached desired golden brown remove and let cool before icing. This cake is especially good with fresh fruit or compote.
