Food voyeur


Oreos with milk

Oreos with milk

Here is a peace offering: oreos with milk, that is. I know it’s not the same as a (potentially drama-filled) post, but my brain has been filled with un-foodie nuisances these past few days and I realize that my writing has been rather unimpressive. Even baking, *gasp*, can’t solve certain things.

And a non-food related “question”: girls, or whoever is reading really, how do you deal with “friends with benefits” type relationships? I’m trying to remain cool and collected over the entire situation but I feel like I am becoming far too emotionally invested in the entire endeavor.

Anywho. Back to food tomorrow, I promise!
