Maple Double Crumb Coffee Cake
I made you some cake! Do you notice that I tend toward breakfast foods when we chat about racism? Okay, and falafel. Same thing, really. Anyway, grab a cup of coffee and a slice of Maple Double Crumb Coffee Cake and get ready to get deep.
Often the only racism people recognize is explicit, individual racism, like someone using the n-word or joining the KKK. But racism can also be implicit, where we are biased without realizing it (click here for an implicit bias test developed by Harvard). And racism is also systemic. Systemic racism seems the least understood but arguably the most critical form of discrimination. So I wrote my best effort at Systemic Racism 101 for my fellow white people.
Brooklinen provided me with a set of their Classic Hardcore Sheet Bundle for free to review, but my opinions are always my own.
Pumpkin Pie Monkey Bread
Four years ago, I had just moved into my new apartment in Cornelius, North Carolina, and made my first recipe in my new kitchen: German Chocolate Cheesecake. Today, I’m surrounded by boxes in varying states of unpackedness in my new apartment in San Diego (La Mesa, to be more specific), California, and I just made my first recipe in my new kitchen: Pumpkin Pie Monkey Bread! Most of my apartment is still in disarray, but I’m eager to share with you the ONE room I’ve finished, my bedroom. I’m super proud of how cute it turned out! I always love when people post tours of their newly decorated spaces, so I thought you might like to see mine.
