Frittatas are one of the few ways I can actually manage to enjoy eggs. I’m not too big a fan of eggs, but after trying these out, I know that this definitely won’t be my last time making this big bad egg pie again. The basil and tomatoes both came from my backyard, and for a while, we even had eggplants growing in our backyard (although they weren’t used for this recipe).
Whisk eggs, flour, milk and fresh, chopped basil in bowl.
Chop vegetables and add to egg mixture.
Pour egg mixture in pan over medium heat, waiting for eggs to set.
Lift edges occasionally to allow uncooked mixture to go to bottom of the pan.
Transfer pan and bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 °F or until edges are golden brown.
Poke center of frittata to make sure eggs are no longer runny.
Oh my…those golden brown edges are just making me crazy. SO delicious.
Bon appétit! ♥
I’ve really been into all hues and shades of blues and greens recently, especially throughout the summer. Light blues, seafoam green, mint…they all seem so calming. The weather down here in La Jolla gets confusing-sometimes it’s super chilly in the morning even when the sun is out, and then sometimes it can be really hot and sunny and then just a few days ago it was just plain gloomy and cold. I’m going to need to start bundling up in warm winter clothes…I’d like to invest in some nice boots and a big chunky scarf that I’ll probably just pull out on the coldest of days, which happens quite often here. At least more than my little SoCal bum is used to.
Do these shorts look familiar? You might have seen them here.
I love clothes that show a little bit of the shoulders…but yeah, it gets cold sometimes.
Reunions with childhood friends are the best!
Especially when you have this sitting right in front of you. Green tea snow with lychee flavored boba and mochi, drizzled with condensed milk…AAAH.
In light of all the recent midterms, here’s a motivational quote for all you wonderful readers…
“Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal-a commitment to excellence-that will enable you to attain the success you seek.” -Mario Andretti
Have a lovely day! ♥
Good morning! I had this sudden urge to make crepes this morning with my roommates and it just brought back feelings of nostalgia from the summer…oh, how I miss summer. There are a lot of things I miss, I guess I just don’t realize it as much since I truly love my time at college. But there are certain times when I just start thinking about home and family and friends and I catch myself choking up a little bit. Of the many things I miss, I definitely miss my dad’s cooking and being able to make my own food whenever I feel like it. And actually making good food. Considering the fact that making my own food in college is a lot more difficult without my own kitchen and all the ingredients on hand, I would say that I did pretty good…but these crepes are definitely way better than the ones I made today. Give it a try!
Melt 2 tsp butter and let cool.
Mix milk, flour, egg, sugar, cinnamon and melted butter in bowl.
Brush nonstick skillet with a little of the remaining butter.
Heat pan over medium-high heat.
DIstribute batter evenly by lifting pan off heat, cook until edges are golden.
Add toppings and serve.
This is one big crepe…
I added peaches, bananas, condensed milk and some granola mix on this one!
This bad boy gets strawberries, blueberries, grapes, condensed milk and some trail mix (pictured above).
I have 8 am classes everyday so it does get kind of tiring sometimes…but coming home to this? It makes my day all better. I even made these for my friend’s birthday today and brought it over to his dorm-I think it’s safe to say that he was very happy with the surprise and even happier with the fact that he could get a break from dining hall food. Or maybe my crepes were just that bomb. Hahaha, guess I’ll never know!
Hope y’all have a lovely day ♥
It is so unbelievably refreshing to be able to see all these pictures of summer, my close friends and the beach. Sitting here at my desk in my college dorm makes me realize just how much I miss being at home. With all the stress that comes from midterms and piles of homework, it’s good to just sit down and look back and these things that make me so incredibly happy.
Part of the joy that comes from growing up is being able to go out and see things for yourself, learning about yourself and about other people. It’s a process that takes time but really helps you to grow and mature in different aspects. Even away from home, I have been able to engage myself in so many different experiences and I have to say that it’s such a blessing, because I never had any expectations to be where I am now.
My first few weeks of college is a whole post in itself that I will save for later, but regardless of how much I love where I am now, there’s still a piece of me that yearns to be back home with my family and all my lovies. Thankfully, I’m never too far away from ocean. I completely just took a hiatus from posting all the pictures I took towards the end of the summer, but these have captured some of my best memories. So without further ado…
BAM. Castles on the beach? Yes, please.
Just a few of the girls that I miss from back home.
You and me, let’s go to the sea.

Thank you for reading! Have a beautiful, lovely, and above all, happy day! ♥
It’s been much too long since I last blogged…I miss it! I never really expected things to speed up and pile up the way they did, but starting a new life in college is so exciting. I haven’t been able to sit down and just blog about life, but I guess this will suffice for the short amount of time I have to spend time in front of the computer and talk about all things Joleen…I’ll keep it brief.
1. Paddleboarding and being able to live so close to the sparkling sea.
2. BBQ with friends because that’s what summer is for.
3. A stop by Sprinkles ice cream.
4. Laser tagging with the friends!
5. Premiere of Planes at El Capitan Theater in Hollywood.
6. Happy (belated) moon festival! One of the very few mooncakes I’ve got to had this year.
7. New makeup palette from Costco…I love Costco.
8. When you don’t have the time or money to go to cosmic bowling…make your own! We just cracked some glowsticks and put it in some water bottles and used a large basketball as our bowling ball.
9. Long bike rides with my lovely bike.
10. As you can see with my bike…I really love the color yellow. Say hello to my new banana phone!
If you’d like, follow me on instagram @broleeen to keep up with some snapshots of my daily life.
Hope y’all are doing amazing and as always, have a lovely day! ♥
