Cheesy Chicken Ramen Recipe


If you love boxed macaroni and cheese, but agree that it takes too much effort to make (yes, I am unbelievably lazy) and that it costs too much money, (cheap frugal too!) this is the Ramen noodle recipe of your dreams.

All you need are 4 ingredients...and really, you could make do with only 3 by substituting a second packet of noodles for the baggie of pasta.


Cheese Chicken Ramen Noodles
Serves 4
  • 1 packet of Chicken or Creamy Chicken Ramen noodles
  • 1 bag of Moderna Vermicelli, 7.05oz (or, if you don't have this, just a second package of noodles - this Ramen tweak makes an already budget-friendly meal even cheaper though!)
  • 3/4 C milk (I've made this with almond, soy, skim, 1%, and 2% - just use whatever's on hand)
  • 1 C shredded cheese (again, whatever kind you have is fine)
1. In a 1.5 qt or larger glass bowl, add the Ramen and vermicelli with enough water to cover. Microwave on high for 6 minutes, stopping to stir halfway through.

2. When the noodles and vermicelli are tender, drain any remaining water. Add the milk, stir, and microwave again for another 2 minutes.

3. Do not drain the milk. Add the shredded cheese and Ramen seasoning packet, stir, and enjoy the chicken-y, cheesy goodness.

Who needs Kraft when you have Cheesy Chicken Ramen?

A Blogger's Before & After Guide to Chemical Peels

A Handy "Before & After" Guide to Chemical Peels - 6/25/17 Update
Since writing my chemical peel blog review back in 2013, I've had quite a few Jessner peels (my favorite) and TCA peels. However, I've saved a ton of money over the past 6 months by doing my own chemical peels at home. At my last professional peel, I made a note of the product being used and did some research when I got home. I was able to buy the exact same one, Dermalure Jessner Solution Acid Peel 14%, from Amazon for less than the cost of a single peel. I also use Dermalure's AHA/BHA Acne Cleanser. (Apply this before the Jessner.) It's self-neutralizing, despite what the Amazon listing says, and couldn't be simpler. That said...
I'm not sure I'd recommend this to a chemical peel newbie, as you're already nervous enough the first time without the added worry of doing it yourself, but it's so convenient (and cost effective!) once you're comfortable with the chemica…

Dream Home Dreaming

*Update*
We've finally broken ground on our mountain dream home! Can you believe it? Even more surprising, we actually managed to work a good chunk of this list into our actual design.

Original post:

Sexy Nerd wants to move up building our dream home to yesterday. I still don't know what I want though! Yes, it's difficult to decide on things like paint colors, flooring, and appliances. My problem is a bit worse.

Should we build one of those adorable 500 square feet mini houses? A (budget-friendly) mansion? A charming stone cottage?

Ultra-modern??

The internet makes it easy to find great design ideas for building our dream house. The downside is that all my favorite photos combine to make an overpriced, mismatched conglomeration.

According to my Pinterest account, my dream house has:

...a dramatic front entrance...

6/25/17 Update: Our entrance is dramatic - and bright, sunshine yellow!
 ...a charming brick fireplace...
