Make cooking a doddle!

Here are a few quick, cheap and easy recipes for students. Hope there are some good ideas for you all!

Firstly, one of my personal favorites is the Chicken wrapped in Bacon

Basically, all it is, is a chicken breast wrapped in a piece of bacon. You put it in the oven at 180-200 degrees c and cook for around 25-30 minutes. After it is cooked thoroughly, top it with BBQ sauce & cheese, pop back in for a couple of minutes and then dinner can be served 🙂 for those who feel extra peckish, this dish works perfect with chips!

Chicken Stir Fry 

Really easy to make! All I do is buy the ingredients from the store (Egg noodles, mushroom stir fry mix and a pack of diced chicken), pour some oil into the pan at top heat, cook your chicken first, add the stir fry mix and noodles together and cook for around 3-4 minutes or until satisfied 🙂 for extra special tasty stir fry, add some soy sauce! Yum Yum!

Stuffed Potato Skins

Simple and very tasty! Heat the oven to 200 degrees c. Wash the potatoes with cold water. Sprinkle salt over the potatoes skin so they crispin up in the oven. Puncture the potatoes with a fork. Place the potatoes in the oven. Cut the bacon up into small squares of the same size and cook until it has started to brown. Grate the cheese onto a plate so that it can be used when the potatoes come out of the oven. When the potatoes are finished cooking, leave them for ten minutes to cool. When they have finished cooling cut open and spoon the potato into a large bowl and crush the potato so that it is easier to work with. Add the cheese, bacon, chillies, butter and chopped chives to the potato and mix well until it is all mixed together. Spoon the mixture back into the potato skins and place back into the oven until the potato has started to brown. Remove from the oven and leave to cool before eating.

Just a few recipes I have tried and enjoyed 🙂 I will add some more again another time!

The new year is FAST approaching!

Well it appears we are now looking at our last few final weeks of ‘Summer’ before our return/arrival to University! To be quite honest, it has gone over that fast I still haven’t unpacked from moving back home yet ha!

I hope you are all ready & prepared for a whole new experience regardless of what year you are in – you learn and you keep on learning!

Unfortunately, my room this year is a lot smaller than my last one so I can’t take everything with me like I have done so far! Luckily enough, the majority of my things are already at my new place so moving in should hopefully be a doddle! Make sure you think logically about what you need and what you don’t really need.

Yet again, I have been struck down with my best friend TONSILLITIS and have been bed bound for a while with penicillin and paracetamol but I’m getting back to normal again. My motto for this year is to Be sensible and stay healthy! As a uni student it is easier to go for the quick food option like takeaways or microwave meals but this year I’ve decided I’m going to eat healthy, stay active & to keep myself fit and well! No more doctors appointments please!

We can not afford to be ill at this stage!

For my next blogget I am going to give you a few cooking ideas that may be useful, easy for you & also a better option 🙂 so stay alert!
