Krista loves cooking and baking, but is currently eating low carb and feels like a golden god when she manages to create an edible meal that isn’t a salad. Some of her prized possessions are her grandmother’s vintage cookbooks and their inappropriate use of gelatin and potted meats. She owned over 300 blushes at one time but is down to around 100. Her goal is to get down to 10, but that might trigger the apocalypse. She thinks Tom Selleck’s mustache should be the 8th Wonder of the World. She’s been in the Bermuda Triangle twice and hasn’t disappeared. She is super proud of that.
