I’m sorry for the length, but I did warn I was going to be as accurate as possible. So far, with a week in, and yes, I’m having some cravings, but not as bad as I would have thought.

Don't get me wrong, I love cooking for myself and my man (with … Continue reading On Forgetting & Dinner with Friends
