And yes, every single one of my dessert creations get’s tested prior to eating. It’s a me thing.┬áI have to make sure that it turns out. But I also have to make sure that no one else notices I took a bite. I try to hide it. Of course, the kids and husband are on to me now. They know my game.

Are you like that too when making a new recipe??
