You will probably notice how often I contradict myself when it comes to eggs. It’s true. I do not like eggs and would prefer to not consume them hence the eggless recipes. However, there are certain foods that are egg based and absolutely love. So yes, you will also find egg-y recipes on my site unless I can make them egg free like these cupcakes. Continue reading
I don’t know about you but I am constantly on the lookout for skin care products. I can never seem to find one that works for me. A little background, I have combination skin, oily T-Zone and dry elsewhere, plus my skin is sensitive. I know that junk food is a major cause of my breakouts but I can’t resist a good chocolate bar.
