Fave Memory: Twelve years ago, I took a trip to Switzerland for 10 days. I still remember the absolutely amazing food I got to experience. What's going on with those Swiss dairy cows? All the dairy I tasted was out of this world. I couldn't eat American-made cheese for months after I got back. My very favorite thing was the yogurt. I tried many flavors, and having lemon yogurt with muesli was like eating a creamy lemon pie for breakfast. And the chocolate! The cheese tarts! 10/10 highly recommend a visit.
(Fave Memory) When I was small, my mom would make angel food cake. I remember the delightful smell of it baking, and I definitely enjoyed sneaking tastes of batter and whipped cream. I'm not sure I helped at all, as I was probably too busy drawing with crayons!
