Emma is a recent college graduate from California who writes her own songs, sings and plays guitar. Check out the excellent music and ASL videos on her YouTube channel! In Emma's own words, "I am a spiritual person and I love music, listening to it, creating it, and everything about it." Her love of music is obvious in her videos!

Emma tells us about 4 videos from Tastemade and describes what they are trying to do with their video network built for the mobile generation. They have a passion for food and travel, but Emma is here to showcase some of her favorite holiday recipes created by Tastemade, so let's get started!
With the winter season upon us, Tastemade has created a whole lineup of videos entitled “Hungry for the Holidays”, and have added holiday recipes to their “Thirsty for…” videos. These videos give some traditional and some different takes on classic holiday recipes. The thing I love about using recipes from Tastemade, is that it’s interactive when you watch their videos, instead of simply reading a recipe online. You get to see the food being made in front of you before you have a go at it. They also provide the full recipe with every video so you can remake each dish you fall in love with. Most of these recipes are also quite simple; anyone could afford to make these amazing additions to their holiday meal. This first dish is one of my favorites…
Although there are countless recipes I could talk about, what are the holidays without eggnog? Eggnog has been a long standing holiday tradition in the United States and Canada, and today is consumed all around the world. It has made its way into coffee shops and restaurants during the winter months so anyone could go pick up an eggnog latte wherever they are, but what Tastemade delivers is something too sweet to pass up. Their homemade eggnog recipe is one to be reckoned with! A friend and I decided to make this eggnog for a holiday party and by the end, people were begging us to make it again in the future. I told them they could make it anytime they wanted, thanks to Tastemade.
Finally, Tastemade gives us a slightly different recipe for a holiday favorite… pumpkin pie bars. These delightful bars will liven up any holiday party you attend. The recipe uses some unique, distinct flavors to spice up the classic dessert, including maple syrup and orange zest. I love making bars rather than large pies because they are a little easier to eat and that way you can give everyone an equal portion size. Regardless of my favorite holiday recipes, Tastemade provides thousands of amazing recipes for all occasions and seasons that you can access anytime. They truly do provide the world with amazing food experiences, so you never know when you and someone on the other side of the world are making the same meal!

How can this be! Sara and Shannon look exactly the same! They are identical twins, yet strangers.
One is 17 and one is 21. One is from Ireland and one is from Sweden. They look quite a bit alike, both with long wavy blonde hair and similar facial features. Then when you add professional makeup artists to the mix, they come out looking absolutely identical!
Some things to know:
1. The video is AN ADVERTISEMENT for a website.
2. The site is Not Free. It costs $3.95 to sign up for 6 months, during which time you can look for your own twin stranger.
3. The site brings up this warning in FireFox: This Connection is Untrusted
The explanation is: www.twinstrangers.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is only valid for the following names: twinstrangers.net, www.twinstrangers.net (Error code: ssl_error_bad_cert_domain)
The thing to do is visit the site at https://twinstrangers.net/ instead.
Now here is the 2 minute 22 second video video (ad) that explains the story of identical twin strangers Sara and Shannon. If you try out the twin stranger service, good luck!
