Now it’s Water, Watch, and Wait. A Wish probably wouldn’t hurt either. I hate to admit that I’m somewhat [...]

When I was a kid, meatloaf sounded like eating garbage. I did.not.like.it. But I also didn’t like chocolate. Crazy kid I was.

The thought of cooking has always been a source of stress for me. Notice I said the “thought”. Forget about actually getting to the cooking part.
