This was such an exciting and unique show to work on! I have to admit, I was not the biggest fan of the horror genre when I first started this job, but I learned so much and was able to meet so many interesting and talented artists. As the production coordinator, I was responsible for researching and scouting studio locations, which required an extensive knowledge of the set build requirements from the art department. I also ensured that all gear was delivered to and from each studio location, and assisted with talent coordination as well as travel and hotel accommodations. I ensured that the set was a safe environment for everyone, crew lunches were given on time, and supervised the set PAs. I was also responsible for typical production office duties- crew hiring and paperwork, payroll, Ca$het reports, purchase orders, and organization of extensive amounts of talent and location releases. Here's hoping Season 2 is a great success and we can come back for Season 3!
This recipe is incredible if you make it the night before and store in the fridge for a super easy brunch! Just slice the cold pie, and reheat on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet in a 350 oven for 12-15 minutes, depending on how many slices you have. That's just enough time to play bartender to your guests, or yourself! I am guilty of downing two slices of this in no time... so I suggest serving with a light mixed greens salad and fresh fruit!
Some awesome ingredient substitutions:
- 1/2 cup chopped deli ham and 4-5 oz shredded Gruyere cheese!
- Roasted bell peppers and onion
- Roasted mushrooms and asparagus... maybe some dollops of goat cheese??? ohhh...
- Literally whatever you WANT! Typically less is more for this recipe, try to keep it under three items. Don't skip the flour-tossing step, as it keeps your ingredients from sinking into a soggy bottom.

4 oz finely shredded Parmesan cheese

1 tbs flour to toss ingredients
If you read this recipe, or better yet TRY it-- please consider leaving a comment to validate my efforts haha :)
Did you know animal agriculture is one of the leading causes of global warming? Not only does our current way of raising livestock lead to mistreatment and abuse of animals, it also leads to rampant deforestation and CO2 emissions, which plague our climate. With this knowledge, you may feel overwhelmed about where to start limiting meat and dairy in your diet.
One way I have increased my intake of said vegetables is to trick my taste buds into feasting on a plethora of healthy items on pizza at least once a week. What used to be a guilt-ridden, naughty “treat-yo-self” dinner has become something I look forward to with joy. This recipe is one of my favorite pizza adventures, and you won’t even miss the cheese!
Vegan Taco Pizza
1 packet of your favorite organic taco seasoning blend
1 16 oz can black beans
1 16 oz can vegetarian refried beans
½ cup frozen corn
½ cup chopped bell peppers (I love red, orange, and yellow)
½ small red or white onion, chopped
2 frozen Cauliflower Pizza Crusts or plain frozen crust of your choice
Guacamole or Slices of Fresh Avocado
Shredded Romaine Lettuce
Salsa of your choice
Chopped Fresh Cilantro
Chopped Fresh Green Onion
Plain Unsweetened Almond Milk Yogurt (This is a great substitute for sour cream, and I am still amazed at how good this stuff is!)
I hope you will enjoy this easy and delicious recipe. Your body and our planet will thank you!

Missouri State University's LA Showcase performers consistently garner a high rate of offers for representation. Alums are meeting with phenomenal success in the industry, a fact growing with each graduating class.

Most impressive is the consistency with which graduates work and thrive in the professional arena. Rachel will perform with 17 other amazingly talented seniors in Hollywood this April, please visit the website for more details and to RSVP!
