Every time I get a craving for a cake, an ice cream or something gastronomic, I turn to food blogs to ease the pain away. Once I see the beautiful photographs, my hunger regains and my cravings go into overdrive.
I am definitely one of those with a very sweet tooth. I like to explore my inner child or go to extra lengths to make something amazing. Food blogs have definitely helped me and I hope the journey I am about to take you on also helps you too, to recreate that inner child in you.
