I used to be so proud to be allowed to knead bread dough once I was 8. And my mother would let me concoct my very own recipes for deviled eggs, no supervision. Once I was about 16, I turned very within the dietary facet of meals. I started experimenting with adapting recipes to make them more healthy. After a number of failures, I used to be in a position to make meals and treats that my household beloved. I needed to share my successes with the world, and so I began my very first recipe weblog. I’ve been running a blog about my love for meals ever since! Some random info about me: I am a shortie: a little bit over 5’2″ tall. Meals that gross me out: watermelon, margarine, and mellow yellow.
