    ... our chef teacher is quick to point out I am burning off the sugars and ruining the dish. Oops! When we have finished our cooking we head downstairs with our fellow chefs to enjoy the fruits of our labour with a couple bottles of red wine.

    ... out our adventures for tomorrow.
    Since we had a day filled with failure, we went to H&M to shop and make ourselves feel better :] Lauren got a cute pair of jeans, Emily got a satchel, and I got a dress, pair of jeans, top, and a cuteee scarf!
