I can tell you with no shame that I was really afraid to make a soufflé. I had it in my head as this insurmountable challenge that I would probably totally mess up and it would take me try after try to get it right. But I did it. And I’m super proud. It wasn’t… Continue reading 18. A soufflé
As the title may suggest, not only have I never tried gazpacho, but I have pretty much been afraid of it for as long as I’ve been aware of it’s existence. Cold soup?! No thank you!
