But recent­ly, I decid­ed to slow down and write out my recipe. I’m excit­ed to final­ly be able share it (and all my secrets) with you! Con­tin­ue read­ing

I’m back!

Whew — the hol­i­days hit and life has been a blur ever since! I’ve got­ten so far behind that I am tempt­ed to got sit in a dark cor­ner and stare at a wall until spring. But that’s not an option so I’ll just tell you a lit­tle bit about what’s occu­pied my time and then I’ll start work­ing on writ­ing the post for a yum­my chili recipe ((com­ing soon)).
