  1. so i'm gonna leave a comment cuz u said the site is lonely =P
    and my question come i never get to taste any of these goodies??

  2. yes it's so lonely cuz only a few people know about it so far. you don't get a taste because i usually make a small batches because late night weekdays are the only time i have to make stuff 99% of the times. and i would poke around half of the batch to test it & experiment it. so by the time i'm done, there's only like a few, and usually it all ends up in my or my lil bro's stomach. i'll try to make some stuff and share it with you, but i don't know who you are cuz u're anonymous. =P
