Three Seed Banana Tahini Muffins

I’ve been following beauty guru Julia Graf since she started her YouTube channel in 2008. I began watching her while I was working towards my master’s degree and was searching for the perfect makeup for a Halloween party. I was searching for Corpse Bride makeup for tutorials at […]

Spicy Roasted California Blend Vegetables

Spicy Roasted California Blend Vegetables

When I hear the phrase “California Blend Vegetables,” I think cafeteria food. I think mushy vegetables: the broccoli so overcooked it’s almost grey, the cauliflower almost green from sucking up the chlorophyll leaching from the broccoli, and the carrots…don’t get me started on the carrots. […]
