Quarantine Blog Post #2

Good afternoon everyone and welcome back to another one of my blog post. Today I will be giving you guys two quarantine recipes and two quarantine activities you can do when you’re bored. There will be a sweet and savory recipe. I hope everyone is staying safe out there and is wearing a mask when going outside. I know everyone out there is missing there friends and their family. I know it may be hard not being able to see them, but I know you will see them soon. All I can say is corona virus is a big bully and I know we can get through this together if we stay strong. Now further ado, lets get to these recipes.

Mac and Cheese Balls

These mac and cheese balls are soft and gooey on the inside and crunchy and crispy on the inside. These are a great appetizer for dinner time.


  • Cheddar Cheese
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Eggs
  • Macaroni & Cheese
  • Bread Crumbs
  • Oil


  1. Start with refrigerated leftovers that have been in the fridge overnight. If you don’t have leftovers, ensure to place the macaroni and cheese into the refrigerator for at least 3-4 hours to firm up.
  2. Mix more cheese into it, makes it easier to roll, especially if the starting texture is more on the creamier side.
  3. Using a scoop, roll out about 15 individually sized balls.
  4. Dip each ball in the egg wash and then dredge in breadcrumbs to form a nice and uniform coating.
  5. Once all the balls have been breaded, put them back in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before frying. However, if you are short of time, you can move straight to frying.
  6. Heat vegetable oil in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat.
  7. Then, add the balls to the Dutch oven and cook for about 4 minutes, until evenly golden and crispy.
  8. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  9. Serve immediately.

Homemade Boba

Boba is soft and chewy. It’s great in an ice cold tea or milk tea. Milk tea with boba is one of my most favorite things in the world. I can eat it all day.


  • 6 tablespoon tapioca flour
  • 2 tablespoons freshly boiled water
  • black food color


  1. Place tapioca flour or starch in a bowl. Place black food color in a separate bowl and add a tablespoon of hot water to the food color. Add the rest of the water directly to the tapioca flour and pour the colored water to the bowl as well.
  2. Mix tapioca flour and water with a fork until they start to stick together. Transfer to a flat surface and knead until the dough becomes smooth.
  3. Divide the dough into 2 and roll each forming thin sticks. Cut them into small pieces. Try to make them as even in size as possible and should be small enough to pass through your straw. Roll each piece in between your palms to turn them into small balls. 
  4. Bring 2 cups of water to a rolling boil in a small pot or saucepan. Add the tapioca pearls to the boiling water and let it cook for 15 minutes or longer until the desired consistency (soft or chewy) is achieved. They will also become darker as they cook.
  5. Remove from heat and let it rest for a few minutes. They will shrink back to the original size and will turn black at this point. 
  6. Transfer tapioca pearls into a sugar syrup or a bowl with a little water to prevent them from sticking together.


One activity you can do during quarantine is play video games with your friends and family. Especially when you can play on any device and console. Fortnite is a survival game with guns. I’m pretty sure ages 12 and up should play this game. It’s really fun to play. I’ve been playing it ever since quarantine started. A second activity is face time. If you don’t have a phone you can do skype, zoom, house party, etc. It’s great way to talk to your friends and loved ones when you are not allowed to see them.
