Recommendations of the week:
Sally came in with a cooking-rec of the week and that is to put peanut sauce on pizza! Try it before you form opinions! Our second recommendation of the week is from Alex, and he recommends to try marmite as a seasoning item. Put it in your chili and let us know! Sebastian's cooking recommendation is to have hoisin sauce at home. It's somewhat sweet, deep sauce that goes with most things!
Alex has another-one (cue DJ Khaled) which is to check Color Brewer 2. It's a website you can thinker with to find a combination of colors that are friendly towards individual with color-blindness.
