I will not be blogging for several weeks and thought I would give you the heads up as to why. To make a long story short… for the past few years I thought I was lactose intolerant.

Sunday I had some terrible stomach pains that lasted all night but went away. Tuesday evening BAM I was hit with some stomach and back pain that would not let up so I...

Behind this cover contains loads and loads of  incredible information. Reading Wendy’s book is kinda like being able to pick her brain. You know when you look at her incredible creations and think to yourself… who’s product is this, how did she do...
