August 8, 2018

If those doomsday predictions are indeed true and the world will be transformed into eraser dust tomorrow, we find contentment to have at least given you this list of the best, lip-smacking recipes. By “best”, we mean as gauged by the number of shares they have accumulated over the 8 months of’s existence. By “lip-smacking”, we mean really delicious.

So here they are, in no particular order. Just click on the dish’s name and you’ll be linked to the recipe pronto.
