You’re at home and nothing else to do—you’re done with that Netflix show you’ve been watching, you’re down the last page of that book you’re reading, you’ve tried every single interactive Instagram filter—and yet, you still got nothing to do. You go back to Instagram and scrolled and scrolled and scrolled. Until you come across that short cooking clip then you suddenly felt hungry and craving kicks in. Perhaps, cooking can be your next hobby? With these easy and trendy recipes, you sure can be!

Recently, the internet was graced by yet another delicious and aesthetic recipe—Dalgona Coffee. It’s simple, taking your ordinary coffee to the next level with that luscious coffee foam goodness. But everybody’s already doing it, why not make something a little bit different and chocolatier? Instead of using coffee, try using Milo and make your own Dalgona Milo!

What you’ll need:

2 tbsp of Milo

2 tbsp of sugar

2 tbsp of hot water

Milk

Ice

What you’ll do:

Just like the dalgona coffee, all you have to do is mix equal parts of Milo powder, sugar, and hot water in a bowl and whisk—whisk it good!—until you get a fluffy and chocolaty foam. Then, pour it on top of iced milk and there you have it! Your own dalgona milo.

Pro tip! Add chocolate shavings or Milo powder on top for extra sweetness!

Don’t you ever get that sudden pasta craving that makes you wanna run to your favorite Italian restaurant? But it’s too far and honestly, you’re just a little lazy to dress up and go out. So, why not make it yourself? So, what if it’s Italian? You can totally do it at home with easy to find recipes and just one pan.

What You’ll Need:

A couple of tomatoes

Garlic

Lemon

Shrimp

Spaghetti or linguine pasta

What You’ll Do:

Chop the tomatoes and garlic then sauté it in oil on your pan at medium heat. Season it and once it’s a bit cooked, throw the pasta in and add enough water to cover the pasta. Turn your timer on for about 9 minutes and let it cook. Make sure to stir it once in a while to make sure that the pasta doesn’t stick together. Once your timer is up, toss in the shrimp and let it cook for another 2 minutes. And just like that, you have an Italian-styled pasta!

What you’ll need:

2 fillets of chicken breast, chopped into cubes

½ cup cornstarch

¼ cup butter

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoon hot sauce (or more *winks*)

salt & pepper

For the sauce, melt the butter in another pan. Add Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce in. Mix well then toss cooked chicken in. There you have it—your own classic buffalo chicken.
