This is Not Like Baking

My original plan was to cook one meal a week and then update my blog and Instagram with each meal attempt. But my journey so far has not gone this way. On Saturday, February 11th,  I went shopping for the ingredients to make two appetizers because my plan was to cook both Saturday and Sunday […]

Perfectionism: The Struggle is Real
