Simple Spinach Pie (family recipe)

Hey there, my lovely Internet family.
I'm just getting over a head cold, so today I have a quick and simple recipe, a family classic, and a meal oft-requested throughout my brother's and my childhood. It's a birthday staple, even now, served with a side of broiled salmon or king crab legs. And, it's inexpensive, painless to make, and oh-so-delicious. I do hope you like it, too. So without further ado...

stars burn out

But even if these stars burn out
Leaving me with nothing at all to sing about
Even if my whole life I never find the place where I belong
You are still my song

Happy Anniversary, my love. It's been a fantastical year.

Easy & Affordable Skincare Routine: Morning, Post-Workout, Evening

Hey there, Hanlin family!

This just in: For the first time, Hanlin has officially lost all the content for one of her blog posts, with no warning, can't figure out what happened or how to undo it, and because she's a genius and didn't back it up, she has to rewrite the whole thing. So, I'm banging this out for a second time, and I apologize for any typos or grammatical errors. I'm annoyed at the moment. Ugh, technology.

Anyway. (ughthat'ssofrustrating)

I'm a simple gal when it comes to my skincare routine. I followed the same one from the beginning of high school through my sophomore year of college, using solely Clinique's products. But, as much as I love Clinique, their products are expensive, and that adds up for a college student. So, I switched over to Johnson's Baby Head-to-Toe Wash - it was easy and cheap, and it worked. In December of last year (2015), I decided it was time for a change, so I began using a few different and simple products that I have grown to love: Neutrogena, Burt's Bees, one from my kitchen, and Carmex.

So here you are, my super easy and affordable skincare routine: morning, post-workout, and evening.
