In my experience as a food blogger, one of two things happens when you sit down to write a post. The first is that some sort of intro pops into your head, you start typing, and it all pretty much works out from there. The second is that you sit down, you stare at a blank screen […]

I have this theory that everyone has a few questions they get asked all the time – the kind of questions that you almost memorize answers for because you’re so used to saying the same thing. It’s like the whole “What’s your major?” for a college student, one of those things that people just automatically […]

I definitely have a love-hate relationship with cakes. It’s nothing new, but something I’ve fully come to terms with lately. Things always start out in the love territory. I love the idea of cakes, I love how they look when they come out perfectly, and I loooove eating them (duh!). The hate starts factoring in […]
