Kitchari, a Tribute to Pat Summitt, and a Question: Who Inspires You?
The other night I found myself laying on the couch on my back, swollen feet up in the air after a long day at the bakery – 205 cakes long, to be exact. But whose counting? Ted was cleaning the floors (bless him – I know – I’m the luckiest girl ever). He had the […]
