Happy Sunday, friendly faces!
How’s the weekend been treatin’ ya? I spent so much time working in the kitchen yesterday that my oven gave out on me 😂 It started smoking, did a bit of hissing and spitting, and then straight up died. Luckily it was just some minor little part that took all of 10 minutes to replace, but I still got a pretty good kick out of it. And it was well worth the trouble because not only did I manage to knock out a few recipes for Spoons, but I finally nailed a recipe that I’ve been obsessing over for a handful of weeks now, and I seriously can’t wait to share what I’ve been working on with you guys 😁
In the meantime, I’ve got some awesome links to share! This week is a little heavy on the blogging links, but they’re some of my favourite to read so I hope you find them useful as well. Other than that, I’ll see you… tomorrow (?)… with something that I haven’t quite decided on yet. Bye!
For my head…
