    Challenge accepted. I’ve found I can fuck up almost any recipe. :p

    Though seriously, I like this, so I’ll probably try a few of them that look pretty good to me!

  2. first thought: omg yum yes, this goes into my bookmarks, Maree is the best, I love autostraddle!

    second thought: damn now I’m hungry, lunch is still 1h30 away and I know it won’t be this great… but the first thought trumps the second ! :)
