Actually on second thought, it’s not really about tech/programming itself and more about tech as an industry, which I don’t think was what your question was about, haha. Nvm!!

Finally, all the 💜 to for beta reading AND building the Stripe payment workflow! Lesson learned, if there’s one thing you shouldn’t do in the middle of an ambitious project, it’s decide that You Need To Redo Your Website and burn out from web dev frustrations.

Anyway, this is my first time self-publishing a print book so just want to give a shout-out to the amazing team of people I worked with. I couldn’t have gotten it done without them. 😊💜✨

But most of all, I just want to say, if you’re feeling confused and overwhelmed from learning to cook, it’s okay, you aren’t alone. 💜 I feel overwhelmed too. Take care, friends.

I hope this book can help fill that beginner’s gap when it comes to cooking. You’ll learn: - how to create a clear, actionable cooking goal - how to figure out a recipe and grocery routine that works for you - how to reflect on recipes and make judgment calls as you go along
