  1. You should have owned a restaurant. The food you showcase here always looks so delicious. Your passion for food is obvious.

    Yesterday a teenager whom I mentor dropped off two red velvet cupcakes iced with green frosting and with fancy lacey chocolate decorations. What a treat from a sweet girl.

    Happy St. Patrick's Day!
