It’s official, midterms are over and I only have 5 weeks of college left! Speaking of midterms and classes, I wanted to share with you this incredibly easy one pot pasta. On Mondays through Thursdays and I have classes from 7:30 AM until 7:30 PM. No, I am not exaggerating. I have a seriously bad habit of eating out that I’ve been trying to cut. But one thing is for sure, when I get home I want a no-fuss meal that can curve my hangry attitude. The recipe is extremely easy, I promise even you cooking rookies could make it.

Now normally when you think of spaghetti you think of having to wait for the water to boil, cooking the noodles, draining the noodles, etc. When I was grocery shopping at Wal Mart this week I notice that a brand that I love released these Barilla Pronto Pasta products. They are an authentic Italian food brand, that brings well-being and quality taste to your table, thanks to the perfect match between pasta and sauces. I picked up the Spaghetti (you should too next time you’re at your local Wal Mart!) just to see what this “Pronto” was all about. Well, I  was pleasantly surprised with the “Dinner on Demand” motto they have. You can now enjoy pasta without having to boil or drain water, meaning you can skip those time consuming steps and create an amazing one-pan dinner! I paired it with the Barilla Marinara Sauce to create a delicious plate. 

One Pan Turkey Meatball Spaghetti


  • Ground Turkey
  • 1 cup Italian Breadcrumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cups mushrooms
  • 1 box of Barilla Pronto Spaghetti
  • 1 jar of Barilla Marinara Sauce
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • Shredded parmesan for topping


  1. Start by prepping your meatballs. Mix in a bowl together your ground turkey, garlic, eggs, breadcrumbs, and half of your onion (diced).
  2. Form balls with your mixture and cook on the stovetop on medium to high heat.
  3. Once the meatballs are cooked 3/4 of the way through, add the rest of your ingredients to your pan.
  4. Cook and stir occasionally for roughly 10 minutes.
  5. Ta-da! Serve with shredded parmesan.

Recipe | Lavender Angel Food Cupcakes For Mom







recipe_mothers_day_mom_lavender_cupcakes_recipe_dessert_kitchen_athome_angel_cake_2Hi LCC readers, it’s Alia! Mother’s Day is quickly approaching and I knew I wanted to do a little something extra for my mom (Nola!) this year. She is someone who I admire greatly and aspire to be like when I become a mother. Some of my favorite memories with my mom have been with delicious treats. We are obsessed with Georgetown Cupcakes and would order them for everyday of the week if we could. With that said, I was inspired to create my own recipe for my mom. She would love this cupcake because it isn’t too heavy and incorporates floral flavors. The angel food is light and airy while the frosting is more full and rich.

We wrapped them up in a pretty gift box full of matching tissue paper, twine, and a pretty floral decoration. I hope my mom and other’s are able to enjoy this yummy treat on this special day! Stay tuned, Taylor will be sharing her gift guide for Mom later on today!

Serving Size: 6 cupcakes


  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 5 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare the muffin pan with cupcake liners.
  2. Sift together the flour, cornstarch, and salt in a medium sized bowl. Repeat this step four more times to aerated the ingredients.
  3. In a large separate bowl, beat the egg whites on medium-high with a electric mixer until they become foamy. Add the cream of tartar and beat until the mixture forms soft peaks.
  4. Slowly add the sugar, one tablespoon at a time until fully incorporated. Add the vanilla extract.
  5. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients with a spatula. This should be done in three different sections. Repeat until well combined. Gently fold in the lemon zest.
  6. Distribute the batter evenly to the cupcakes liners. Bake for 16-18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  7. *Be careful removing the cupcakes because significant changes in temperature will cause the cupcakes to shrink in volume. Cool them near the oven. Frost when completely cool.

The Ultimate Springtime Beauty Bucket List


Hey everyone, it’s your Beauty Editor, Emilie! I’ve missed writing to you guys the past couple weeks but I am officially settled back in London for the final trimester of the school year. It’s warm enough here where it actually feels like Spring so I’m inspired to share some bright and colorful beauty products that you’ll be dying to buy and try for the beautiful months ahead.

Who remembers my favorites for the lips post when I talked about how I felt my makeup collection was incomplete without Buxom’s Full On Lip Cream? I’ve managed to get my hands on this gloss and I can’t stop wearing it, I carry it in my purse everywhere I go. The product has a tingly plumping agent, minty smell and taste, sheer color application and smooth formula which work together to create a complete and perfect package. I’ve been wearing this in a few colors but my current favorite is Grape Groove.

Just when I thought the Better Than Sex Mascara by Too Faced couldn’t get any better, in walks the new and improved waterproof version. If you have oily skin and your mascara tends to transfer, or you live in an area where it’s already warm enough to go swimming then this is definitely the product for you. Just make sure you take the extra care to remove your mascara before bed with an oil-based eye makeup remover. Waterproof makeup won’t budge and come off unless you use a remover that can really melt it away.

It can be tricky to find the right balance with blush, bronzer and highlighter in the springtime. During this season, I switch over to the infamous no-makeup-makeup look. Even though I keep my makeup more natural when it’s warmer out, I still wear a full face. You will find the appropriate amount of pigment and staying power in this gorgeous Cheekathon Blush & Bronzer Palette by Benefit- and if you purchase the whole kit, you’ll get a lot of bang for your buck!

Aside from switching up my makeup in the Spring, I also like to have fun with new nail polishes. The OPI New Orleans collection has really blown me away. I love how intense and unique the colors are and I don’t mind bringing my bottles of polish to a manicurist since the formula lasts such a long time–I’ve worn my favorite color of the collection, I’m Sooo Swamped, for a week and a half without a single chip! Polishes like these definitely make a professional paint job worth the ten bucks.

I’ve never written about fragrances on the LCC before so you can totally trust that my first perfume recommendation is a good one. I tried out the Nest Fragrances Citrine perfume while I was on the hunt for a scent to include in a story for, featuring beauty products that are perfect for stashing in your purse. The citrus and floral notes are refreshing and add the best final touch to the rest of your springy look.Shopbar
