I worked for this cafe for about....2 weeks and realized...I don't really like cooking on demand or pressure. I was a prep-cook for a franchise at one point and I was good at it but being a cook?
Don't get me wrong. I'm not knocking on cooks or cooking. I love cooking.... when I don't feel pressured to make a master piece in 10 minutes and be criticized.
So, I worked there for 2 weeks, gave it a shot and hated it! I did however get an awesome blueberry muffin recipe.
I LOVE to bake!
