Fancy & Easy French-Inspired Appetizer


My last few posts have been about recruiting so it seemed like a good time to break things up with a recipe =]

The finished product

This one is inspired by a delicious French appetizer my mother makes with foie gras, but this is a little easier (and cheaper ;D)

What you’ll need (based on servings at Trader Joe’s):

  1. One bag of pitted, dried plums
  2. 2 packages of prosciutto
  3. 2 – 3 small goat cheeses (or 1 long loaf)
  4. Tooth picks (one box is plenty)

And now for the steps!

First, cut prosciutto in half to avoid wallet obliteration

All you need to do is cut your slices of prosciutto lengthwise (hot dog style), put goat cheese inside each pitted prune, wrap the slice of prosciutto around and use a tooth pick to secure it all.

Present as you wish =]

I was psyched to discover Alltuition at LAUNCH. The girl who launched this is a genius! This app makes it easier for students and their parents to find money for college. Need? (One of the most important criteria necessary for a startup to be successful) Check!

Practical tools I actually WANT to use? Oh yeah! Check it out:

  1. Alltuition provides you with a “simple, intuitive online financial aid planner for managing the entire financial aid process.”
  2. It makes it so you don’t need to scavenge the web, magazines, university websites, etc. for information anymore. Alltuition doesn’t make you wade through endless amounts of information you don’t need. It simply finds and presents you with the opportunities that actually apply to you. Time saver!
  3. Alltuition also helps you estimate how much financial aid you’ll get at each university you apply for
  4. It helps you fill out your FAFSA and apply for grants and scholarships
  5. and double checks your work to make sure you don’t have any errors to slow down the process or keep you from getting the most financial aid possible

Sounds pretty good, right? I thought it was pure genius and am going to send my little brother the link =]

It was about time someone made this process simple and understandable!

Dec 23 How to Fold an Origami Crane (in under 2 minutes)


A friend of mine who helped me make cranes for my granny told me it took him 10+ minutes to make a crane!! After making several hundred… it now only takes me about 1 minute per crane so I thought I would record a video (looked some up and they unfortunately weren’t that  helpful/simple.)

So here’s my how-to video for origami cranes ❤

It’s about 5 minutes since I go nice and slowly to make sure it’s all easy to understand, but let me know if there are parts you don’t understand or if it just isn’t helpful!
