The Best Fried Rice

 I can honestly say this is the first weekend in a long time that I’m actually not happy to see. I don’t really have anything against this weekend itself, it’s just that I start school on Monday. And really, this past month off from homework and 10-page papers and 4-inch thick textbooks has been nothing short of glorious.

But this is my last weekend of freedom. You guys. What should I do with my last two days of freedom??

The Best Fried Rice

The only reason I am actually looking forward to starting school on Monday is that this is my last semester.


I’ve just gotta say that again. This is my LAST semester! I can’t tell you how excited that makes me. Four months from now I’ll have a health science degree under my belt and a whole lot more time to dedicate to cooking, photographing, blogging…

repeat, repeat, repeat.

The Best Fried Rice

Now this fried rice. I have big plans for all the new recipes I’ll be sharing to go with this easy, BEST-EVER fried rice. My secret? Chili powder. It doesn’t make the rice spicy, so don’t worry about that. But it does give the rice a flavor kick that you will want, wait…need. You need it. This rice is so good I end up eating it straight from the pan with a spoon.

Don’t judge. You will too friends, you will too.
