Click here to see what I made with these ingredients! A couple of months ago, my mother and I went to Half-Price Bookstore. If you’re not familiar with this store, it is a fantastic bookstore that sells various books for half of the original price […]

In 2008, I decided to stop drinking soda for good. I upheld that promise for over a year and then started drinking soda again. I don’t know why really. It may because of the mistake someone made at Wendy’s when I ordered a tea and […]
