    I love your recipes! When i had started hosting big dinner parties and similar events in my twenties – i would regularly go broke on the occasion lol, then i learned it’s the intent that matters more – the love and good will with which the food is prepared and guests entertained, that tastes better even than Beluga caviar served with cold heart 😉

      Thank you so much! Yes, I think our twenties are the time in life for those lessons! I did the same types of things. 🙂 Ah, so nice to have gained some wisdom and learned the true importance of entertaining — sharing time with those you care about!
