“I’m seriously passionately, inexplicably in love with food. Bacon makes me beam. Chocolate makes me shout from the rooftops with joy. Vegetables and I are the best of frenemies. My perfect world would include none of them. I grew up absolutely loathing veggies, but the world wide web has taught me how to enjoy green things such as kale and brussels sprouts. To the point where I actually want to consume them.
My mom is still in disbelief, yes.
And I have a terribly horrifying amount of cheese in my cheese drawer. Real life.”-Jessica Merchant
