Contradiction.

I wasn’t even sure what to call this stuff.

I’m totally out of my element.

I wanted pound cake, but I wanted crispy edges on my bread.

Can you tell I’m an “end-crust” type of person?

Oh, so totally.

Oh, and I will take my toast burnt, please, thank you. :)

So people…this is what you get when my mind goes wild.

But it’s totally okay to break the rules sometimes.

Did I mention this stuff is paleo?
