Merry Christmas Cake Decorations

I realize that this post comes a few days ritardo.Ma sometimes they are so reluctant to write on the blog.

I cook every day, of course! But I can not always photograph (or perhaps I should say I do not always feel like it!).

I remember a few years ago when I had the bright idea, spurred on by my partner, start writing a cooking blog.

Some thought, then everything started like that, like a game! How do you diary with you when you girls!

I love to cook, like so many other people who will come across in my post looking for recipes and how many atria millions of food bloggers.

I'm glad I started writing on this blog,

but I realize that I do too little! Or sometimes never!

Or sometimes I do not feel motivated to do anything!

There are lots of people who pass by, look at the recipes, maybe remakes too, but not even leave a comment!
