Quarantine Baking – 4 Tasty Dishes

Oh, the dreaded Monday. Back in the spring when we were all doing virtual teaching, Monday didn’t feel quite so scary because it didn’t quite feel like I was actually going to work. I’m currently on Week 14 of face to face teaching (I can’t believe we are actually going to finish a whole semester of in-person school) and all that’s really left is the worst part…grading.

Review: fresh Lotus Youth Preserve
