The Biggest Lie About Food

Cooking is so hard. It takes so much time and effort. It’s so expensive to cook from scratch. These are all lies. Yes, cooking is work but it can be fun as well. Some things will surprise you at how easy they are. For example, I made pickles last week. First I cut up small […]

This is My Body

I have quite a few friends who have gotten into sourdough starter. They make pancakes, pie crusts and bread. I’ve been balking for a while but decided to jump into bread making after seeing how easy it was. First I got some sourdough starter from a friend. I put it into a jar and then […]
