I’ve been working on some recipes to share on the blog, then the arrest hit, as well as going to the grocery store or getting components became more of a challenge. Having actually resided in quake country, I began acquiring a few added things in the last couple of weeks, specifically seeing what was happening to our next-door neighbors in Italy. Being a baker, I’m lucky that I always have flour, delicious chocolate, sugar, and also nuts in stock, plus I maintain butter on hand in the fridge and also freezer, in situation of emergency situations.
