Our Beef With Cooking

4/7/2021
Since we’ve both started cooking more for ourselves in the past few years, there’s a few gripes we have about cooking. First of all, we’re spending more and more time (and money!) thinking about, prepping for, and cleaning up after cooking. Second of all, why does it take 10+ hours of careful love and coddling for us to make some decent bone broth at home?! Join us for our little rant session today to see if any of your cooking pet peeves come up! Follow us on IG! @eatyourcrustpod

An Ode to Our Big Friendships

3/10/2021
It’s no secret that friendships are a big part of our lives - from our close high school group chats, to our long distance friends we truly miss, to the friends who are always down to do absolutely nothing together, our friendships mean just as much to us as our relationships! But does the amount of effort, vulnerability, and transparency we bring to friendships match the level of internal appreciation we have? Are we as willing to work on our Big Friendships as we are on our relationships?...
