November 19, 2007

Instead of waiting around until I have a site that I like the look of, or I’ve purchased a domain name (undecided about whether to do that or not) I thought I should just get my act together and start keeping my creative journal at last!

Today I bring you pictures of comfort food that did wonders for stress in the cooking as much as the eating!
