life is alot of changes lately and i havent posted in a really long time, i've lost track of my recipe challenge and i dont know WHAT i have been eating lately, but i really desire to be ag reat cook once more since im getting married soon and i found a guy who actually doesnt mind the vegetarian side of things, so moreover the reason to impress him by smartening up and trying new recipes or creating my own. i most certainly have the time, so no messing around, lets do this!!! Vegan turned vegetarian
