Cupcakes For Courage

Back in 2012 I was just starting off as a Journalism student at Columbia College. Food trucks were the trend and so were cupcakes. This month for my Roaming Hunger article I had to write about a favorite of mine. Naturally, I took it back to my roots and I want to thank Laura Pekarik as well as congratulate her on all of her success within the past four years!

Check out the article and share it with your friends!


Thanks Pinterest!

I’m a bank teller and when you hear that you might think that my day ends at five o’clock…well it doesn’t. Usually my day ends at 7 p.m, and I’m starving. I’m always looking for quick 10-minute meals to make myself and thanks to Pinterest and my local grocery store I found my new favorite creation.


Cook the noodles according to the directions on the package and discard the packet of sodium, I mean seasoning.

In a sauté pan brown beef chunks, (I cut mine into tiny cubes)  and add minced garlic, (as much as you’d like) baby corn, (or any other vegetable you prefer) and once all is cooked, mix it together in a bowl with the ramen noodles and add fresh scallions on top.

Once this is done, mix two tablespoons of sesame seed oil and soy sauce into your noodle concoction.

Frying an egg to add on top is optional, but trust me, it makes it more delicious.

I understand that this isn’t a typical recipe and I’m just ranting about food, but hey, that’s what Pinterest is for…
