Saturday Cooking

As I’ve mentioned in earlier blog entries, I like to spend Saturdays and Sundays cooking and preparing for the week ahead. Yesterday, I decided to cook my go-to meal, beans. I like spicy food, so I got this “recipe” from my dad, who also shares the desire to have flames shoot out of his ears. Hope you enjoy!

Cajun Style 16 Bean Mix


  • 1 package of Kroger brand Cajun style 16 bean soup mix
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes with jalapenos
  • 2-2 1/2 tsp of oregano
  • 1/4-1/2 cup of chopped onions
  • a few dashes of onion powder to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Follow directions on the back of the bean mix and begin cooking.
  2. After around 10 minutes, place can of tomatoes in with the bean mixture.
  3. After around 20 minutes, add in the spices and onions.
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste, cover and let simmer for around 1 1/2 hours or until tender.


Serve with tortilla chips or crackers and enjoy!

Additional Blog

I’ve been recently working on an additional blog  for one of my public relations classes this semester. As part of the class, I first had to find an organization to work with this semester. I chose the Monongalia County Girls on the Run program, which is a non-profit located here in Morgantown. The next step was to create a blog about whats going on in this particular industry and to post information about upcoming events hosted by the organization. So far I’ve really enjoyed diving into the research about whats happening in the world of PR, locally and globally.

So here is the link to my other blog. Feel free to check it out and I do encourage questions and/or comments!
