Sydney Hightower Will Give You Major Cooking Inspiration
It’s easy for meal prepping and cooking to get monotonous. Same food, different day. The stay-at-home orders have allowed people to rediscover different cuisines and techniques, which makes the kitchen less of a daunting place. For those in need of a bit of a cooking pick-me-up, Instagram might just be your key.
Sydney Hightower, who appeared on Peter Weber’s season of "The Bachelor," has taken to sharing some of her best quarantine recipes on social media. Sydney has a Highlights reel on her page called "recipes," and she offers step-by-step instructions on some of her favorites. These include monkey bread, roasted honey butter carrots, coconut rice, and more.
Earlier in the week, Sydney made lasagna from scratch. She showed how to prepare two different kinds of sauces — one with ricotta and one without — as well as the meatballs that went in the lasagna. These comprise an egg, dried oregano, minced roasted garlic, Panko bread crumbs, olive oil, parsley, Parmesan, and salt and pepper.
Sydney said of her recipes, "I don't measure I just go with the flow and your gut."
Following her gut seems to work just fine, because her recipes all turn out beautifully!
Other than cooking, Sydney has been spending lots of quality time with her boyfriend, San Francisco 49ers linebacker Fred Warner. On September 2, like many of her other "Bachelor" friends, Sydney reflected on how much her life has changed over the past year.
She wrote on Instagram, "A year ago today I was packing my bags to fly to LA to start my filming for Bachelor, little did I know I was beginning some of the legitimate most crazy, happy and confusing times of my life."

Sydney continued and paid homage to Fred, "Fast forward to one year later and I have this one. Never did I think that I would be so incredibly blessed to know what this fairytale tale love story of ours feels like! Not one day goes by that I am not thankful for what we have built, and what is to come. Thank you for being you, thank you for loving me with zero hesitations, for being the kind gentle, loving man that you are."
