I'll Pretend Better

I’ll Pretend Better

Being me is exhausting some days, even before breast cancer. Today, I'm fighting nausea and knowing I must try to eat in the face of understanding that when I do, I'll feel worse.

Fruit Cobbler

Homemade Fruit Cobbler That Will Make You Slap…Wait…Don’t Slap Anyone

Oh, mah babies. THIS. This cobbler came out of my oven smelling of sweet summer fruit and light cakey droolgoodness. I had to remind myself not to take a bite until it had cooled enough so it wouldn't remove the skin from the roof of my mouth. THE TORTURE!
