Okay… Okay… I am sorry, I keep meaning to update this blog with the mass amounts of new recipes I have been trying and I start to do it! Lord knows I start my posts… but one thing leads to another and the next thing you know, I am on YouTube watching kittens AND baby sloths with my glass of wine while sobbing because they are so damn cute and I cant help myself!

Well, now you know… I AM A MESS!

I need to get a parental lock on my laptop that blocks YouTube or any relatively cute thing so I can get down to business!
