Ch-Ch-Ch-Cherry! Ch-Ch-Ch-Cherry!


I have a habit. The bad kind. Early in the morning I browse through the magical land of food blogs before I’ve even eaten breakfast. I would not recommend this. It’s like grocery shopping on an empty stomach. I have to make this. And that. Ooohh this looks good. I could eat a whole vat…
