Here I am feeling like Carrie Bradshaw (and I mean in a pathetic way- how do I purposefully not ask rhetorical questions to my audience to avoid looking like I idealise the worst one out of all the sex and the city characters? If you’re a Carrie- you know you’re shit. It’s fine. I still […]

Guys guys, seriously! Yesterday I made jar pasta sauce from scratch (kinda). As in the jars of sauce you buy in a supermarket. I made that! Food in my family is a thing.
