Well, I will admit my recipe naming has really fallen off the wagon, as well as… well, my writing recipes. So many broken promises, and I wish I could feel more badly about it, however, I try to avoid any feeling that would cause any sort of negative thought right now because, holy ship, the […]

This last weekend teaser of 80 degree springtime weather? Holy nuts and bolts. We’re screwed.  Or if anyone else’s upper lip is perspiring just thinking about this past weekend then you are not alone.
