Hello there, My name is Rolla and I am very glad you’ve stopped by to read my cooking blog. It looks like nowadays not many people have time and/or mood to cook food at home. And I think, even less of them are actually enjoying the process of making home food, they probably think: making food is hard or boring. So I really hope you will find recipes posted here useful, tasty and fun to prepare, and you will actually enjoy cooking them.
