Young black female. 24 years on my journey now. Looking for God, looking for love; heard that wherever I find one, I'd find the other.

This is my blog of ramblings, likes, interests. Poke around, stay a while, and enjoy :-)

    And that is how you shop. I just wanted to share this valuable method of money saving with you all.

    Here’s the link to that one photo I used: [x]

    Does creepyyeha know about this? I was under the impression her goods were handmade.

    Needed.

This recipe is so simple but such a delicious way to make cauliflower! The chickpeas add protein & heartiness and the curry powder packs a ton of flavor. This version is not spicy so if you like hot food definitely add red chili flakes, cumin, or your spice of choice!
Here’s a few great ways to use this!
I paired mine with quinoa & red lentils and chilled it
Eat it straight off the pan (or as a side dish haha)
On top of baby spinach with a lemon or yogurt based salad dressing
Rolled up in a whole wheat wrap (or naan!) with Raita
Add chicken or fish to the pan & roast it all together for a veggie loaded main dish
Pureed with vegetable stock (optional light cream or soymilk) for a flavorful soup
Lightly stir fried with basmati rice for a veggie filled take on byriani
For more easy veggie recipes go here! :)

    Sometimes #BlackTwitter gets it right, and other times Black twitter gets it really right

    I was down for Pharrell, but he is in sore need of a thorough dragging to rid him of his White-gaze thirst and tacit respectability politics BS. I mean, what’s next, an “Accidental Racist” duet with LL?

    Honorable mention to @LouMinoti:

    Pharrell needs to come out and clarify this shit before everyone forgets him….Money corrupts some, for real……

    Pharrell is a dummy for this shit.

    Kill Shot = “if you can’t beat em, serve em”

    where is the Tyra gif. “We were rooting for you! We were all rooting for you!”

    Pharrell, your privilege is showing.
    It does not make me happy right now smh
