YMS Spring 2012: Day 5, March 21st


Today we started shooting…


















Cassie’s piece examines insecurities, so she was interviewing via text.


















(Kenneth and Andrew making a shot list)


AND Abby and Darian were busy skyping with WGXC’s Radio Explosion (check out archived show here) and we are just a wee bit excited that they will be broadcasting LIVE at NYShoutOut! 2012


Ellie’s delicious snack: Crumble-Top Muffins using whey 



(no muffins were left alive)


Whey or Milk Serum is the liquid remaining after milk has been curdled and strained–it is the liquid I get after I strain my yogurt.

(1 cup whey contains 1/3 of the calcium you need daily, 1/6 of the potassium you need on a daily basis (almost as much as in a banana) and about 25% of the protein, and is fat-free, as well.)


1 cup of all-purpose flour

3/4 cup white whole wheat flour

1/3 cup sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1 beaten egg

3/4 cup whey

1/4 cup cooking oil

1/4 cup apple sauce

2 tsp vanilla

Mix the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Fill 12 muffins tins. Bake 400 for 20 minutes or till golden. 

For topping, 

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, ginger, or cinnamon

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup chopped nuts or coconut


In a mixing bowl combine oats; brown sugar; flour; and nutmeg, ginger, or cinnamon. With a pastry blender or two knives next to each other, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in nuts or coconut. Sprinkle topping over filling.
