Bringing back the food blog

I have had the most exhausting few months at work. And it just kept getting worse and worse. I think I was working during all waking hours last week.

But, there is something rewarding about setting up a site yourself. So that's what I'm doing now. I made one blog post, and it's a total mess on the inside, but I'm happy with what I've got so far.
