One thing I love is discovering new blogs. Even more than that, new food blogs. Don't get me wrong I love fashion, interior and lifestyle blogs, but there is something about a good food blog. Maybe it's because I secretly [well, not a secret anymore] would love to quit my job and start fresh at culinary school.

So I recommend you jump on over to her blog for some tasty recipes!
There are quite a few I'll definitely be trying out and one thing is for sure, I'll be purchasing a copy of her book!
