Valentines Day Party / COLLAB ALERT

     As you probably know from the title of this post... I'm doing a collab! I'm so excited because this easily applies to the holiday season. My collab is with my good friend, and classmate, Emma. The other part of our collab is on her channel, . I definitely recommend checking out her blog, her posts are so creative! Hence the title of her blog...
     I bet you're wondering what our collab is about. Well, Since it's the week of Valentine's day, we figured we could do something to make your valentines day the best it could be! So, are you planning on having a party for Valentines Day this year? Well Emma and I have the perfect D.I.Y for decorations and of course, desserts! The desserts Will be on my blog and the decorations will be on Emma's blog, which is why you MUST visit her blog or else your valentines day will only be half amazing.

      So on my blog, I will be sharing how to make your own donuts for valentines day! There's so many different ways to decorate them to, so have fun with it. I know I will! I mean, who doesn't love donuts?

Things You Will Need:

  • 1/2 cup of warm water
  • 2 packages of dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 3/4 cup of lukewarm milk
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 4 cups of all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup of shortening
  • 2 eggs 
  • a pot (to cook the donuts in)
  • a few brown paper bags (amount will vary on how you coat the donuts)
  • Canola oil (you'll need enough to fill up your pot halfway)
  • white sugar
  • cinnamon
  • chocolate (any kind will do, I will use milk chocolate)
  • any kind of filling you would like (I am using Raspberry Jam)

What To Do:

     First, soak the yeast and the sugar in the water, and let sit until the yeast rises. Then, mix that with the milk, shortening, salt, eggs, and flour. Next, let the dough rise in a warm place for 1 hour. After you let rise, roll it out and shape it as hearts (make sure not to make them too thin, but be as creative as you would like). Once again, let it rise for 40 to 60 minutes. Then prepare your sugar and cinnamon in a bag to cover the donuts in. Now you can pot your donuts in and flip when a nice golden brown. When the donuts are cooked you can either coat them in sugar, or wait for them to cool and fill with jelly or cover in chocolate. Finally, Enjoy!





          These donuts are so fun to make, I enjoyed whipping them up so much! Don't forget to check out Emma's blog or else your party will not be complete!

Dunkin' Donuts Review

 What better day to go to Dunkin’ Donuts then National Coffee Day! If you want fast service, low prices, and fresh delectables, Dunkin’ Donuts is the place to go! My Dunkin’ Donuts experience was very splendid. And here’s why.

 First, the prices were low! My mom and I got lucky to go on national coffee day because they had a special drop in prices. Since it was National Coffee Day my mom and I both got coffee. I got a pumpkin spice latte of course! And each coffee only came out to sixty six cents! Wow!

     Next, the service was fast. And by fast I mean super speedy. When my mom and I got there, we were out with our order faster than you could say, “Dunkin’ Donuts!” There were also not very many people in there because of such swift service. Not only was it fast, but each and every worker had a big smile on their face ready to serve you. And with the drop in prices, you would think it would be packed, but their rapid service made it seem as if there was no one except employees.

     Finally, the donuts and coffee were fresh.  Once we ordered, they started to brew fresh coffee right in front of us! It’s also said that they have fresh donuts every morning. When my mom and I got our coffee, it was so piping hot! And our donuts were still warm. It was perfect for the cold weather! Our hands were heated with the coffee and fresh donuts in our hands. The donuts were scrumptious and sugary and the coffee was addicting.  The spectacular donuts just melted in my mouth and the enticing coffee just made my insides feel heated.

     My overall experience at Dunkin’ Donuts was perfect! Not only was there fast service, low prices and fresh delectables, but it all made my Monday morning brighter. The employees were so kind and the donuts were perfect. It was definitely something I enjoyed! Dunkin’ Donuts is definitely the place you should go!

John the Soup Master

    This week I figured I would share with you the article I wrote about my grandpa's life. Enjoy!

     Let’s start off with an introduction to a very successful man, John. Having lived in Greece many years of his life, John was ready for a change. He moved to America. He did many great things there. All while being married and having kids. What did he do you ask? He opened up his own business. That’s right, and there were multiple. He became very popular in the business work zone. And that’s what we’re getting into.

     Have you ever wondered who the “soup king” was? John Logethentis. He was very popular for his soups. He also opened many restaurants over the country. John Had definitely lived his life to the fullest. He had done many wonderful things not only for his business but for others too. And here’s why.

     People traveled from far and near to taste his soup. They knew what day he would make what soup and they would come in all the time. The people loved his soup, it was soft, light, heavy, creamed, anything you could imagine. He would make it.

     Not only was he popular for his soups, but he even opened his own restaurant. In 1972 he opened his own restaurant, Corfu. It had plenty of delicious foods made in the style of American. Everyone loved it there. The workers made fun friendships with each other and the customers. John’s restaurant was definitely the place to be.

     How was John going to make his business more popular? John had come up with an excellent idea. Every year john would make a thanksgiving meal and give it out for free to the homeless. Did you hear that? For free! John made everything you could want and desire in a thanksgiving dinner. And for it to go to the homeless with no pay, it truly made an impact on not just himself and the people he was feeding, but for all those who don’t normally get a thanksgiving dinner.

    After his first Corfu restaurant closed down from lack of business, John was not done with his business. He later expanded his business, Corfu, to other parts of the country, mainly the east side. John had had opened up about 10 other of his restaurants.  John also opened up a waffle house while he was expanding his Corfu business. And when Corfu was coming to an end, John opened may other restaurants and shared his food with the country. He was a very successful man.

   As John aged, He began to get very tired taking care of all his restaurants. He was ready to retire from the business market.  When his restaurant career came to an end, John settled down in his home country, Greece, with his wife, Helen. Now John has five kids and many grandchildren. Once a year, around Christmas, John comes to America to spend the holidays with his kids and grandkids that all live in America. He enjoys coming every year. So I bet we can all agree, Johns life was lived to the fullest.

Food Truck

     Have You ever been to a food truck? Well my experience with the Grilled Chasers Food Truck was amazing! This past summer, every month on a selected Friday, 2 food trucks would set up at North Shore Hospital in Glenbrook for the day. One Friday my family decided to try it out.

     They had Grilled Chasers Food Truck and another food truck. I of course chose the Grilled Chasers, because of my strong love for any and everything chicken... I ordered the Chicken Kabob and the garlic parmesan fries. The chicken kabob was perfectly cooked and had a mouth watering barbeque sauce. The garlic parmesan fries were flawlessly fried so that they were the perfect balance of crunchy and chewy. It smelled and tasted DELICIOUS! I definitely recommend trying out foods from this truck. Their website is . I LOVED my experience and I bet you will too!

Sorry this was such a short post! I swear I will try to post more quality blogs! I have many ideas for upcoming posts. Comment if you have any preferences on what you want to read in my next blog posts.

  • Ground Beef (you can also use chicken)
  • 2 Crescent Rolls
  • 8 ounce of Cheddar Cheese (optional)
  • 2  Cans of Green Chiles (optional)
       First, Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.  Then lay out the crescent rolls on a pan. Next, layer on the green onions, meat, and cheese. Finally, put on the top layer of the crescent and bake in the oven for 13 to 15 minutes. Then enjoy!
