It Begins Today! ‘In the Kitchen’ Review and GIVEAWAY!

I’m so excited to have my first official giveaway! Especially since I get to give away something about which I’m so excited.

Kate Tietje’s In the Kitchen – Real Food Basics is a must-have, for both beginning and experienced Real Foodies. The first section explains the hows and whys, and is understandable and persuasive.
