The three easy recipes are fun and easy to make. All were quickly eaten up after being prepared. “Sophie cannot cook but today was an exception,” Maggie Krejci said.

Many of us are stuck at home lounging around, wondering when we will be able to leave our houses. If you are like me, you get hungry easily but don’t want to put the time and effort in to make elaborate meals. So here are three recipes to try that take little to no time, but are still satisfactory.

Beginner-Smoothie Bowl:

The smoothie bowl is a relatively new and popular food. It’s like a smoothie but with a thicker consistency and is often more filling. However many recipes call for protein powder, chia seeds, or some weird ingredient that are just not lying around the house. This recipe however only needs three ingredients: frozen strawberries, a frozen banana, and coconut or almond milk.

What you’ll need:

-1 frozen banana

-1 ½ cups of frozen strawberries

-½ cup of unsweetened coconut or almond milk.

Pour ingredients into a blender or food processor, and blend until smooth. Once it has a soft-serve ice cream consistency, pour it into a bowl and garnish with strawberries, bananas, etc. Enjoy!

Pepperoni Bread:

This is also known as introverted pizza. This delicacy can be eaten for lunch, dinner, or breakfast if you’re feeling spicy. It’s basically a cheesier and easier-to-eat version of pizza that packs extra pizzaz.

What you’ll need:

-1 Pillsbury crescent dough sheet

-1 cup of shredded mozzarella

-A bag of sliced pepperoni (I used Armour Pepperoni)

-1 egg

-¾ teaspoon of Italian seasoning

Before making your pepperoni bread, preheat the oven to 350°F. Once you have the oven situated, take out a cookie sheet and place a baking mat on it. Roll out the Pillsbury dough on the baking mat until it is evenly spread. Next add the mozzarella but leave a little bit of space on the outside as if the dough is a frame around a family photo of cheese. Place the pepperoni slices in even rows over the cheese. After that, fold the left and right sides of the dough just over the last pepperoni. Take the top of the dough and roll it like a cinnamon bun. Finally, brush a whisked egg over the top of the dough and sprinkle it with the Italian seasoning. Put in the oven for about 15-16 minutes, and then eat.

Oreo Cookie Balls:

These balls of delight might be the reason for your quarantine fifteen. Be careful leaving these desert bites in family areas, they won’t last.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 package of regular oreos
  • 16 ounces of creamcheese
  • 1 pack of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Put both the oreos and creamcheese in a food processor and blend until it looks like cookie dough. Once done, roll the mixture into mini balls. At the same time melt the chocolate chips over simmering water. Dip the mini balls into the chocolate and refrigerate for an hour. Once cooled eat the chocolate-ly delights.
