      Thanks, Nagi! How awesome, another accountant turned food blogger! I’m still working full time though. I was studying so hard last year to get my CPA license, and here I am a year later, working on my food blog! 🙂 Glad you stopped by, Nagi! and thank you for your kind words!

      Thanks Thalia! Yes, vegetables make everything taste better… or maybe it was the bacon. 🙂
