These cakes make an amazing savory snack and can really get your appetite going before dinner! The combination of herbs and spices bring a unique taste to this dish which also packs a mighty amount of nutrition.

Let’s have an adventure.

Well hi there. I guess I will start with my name. I’m Kiera Michelle. My last name shall not be included because I’m not fond of stalkers/axe murderers. I’m 19 years old. Most people tell me I’m young but I sure as hell don’t feel young. I’m at a pretty pivotal time in my life right now. I’m living in a garage for one, I don’t have a job and haven’t for 3 months. Nothing has started to fall into place yet but for now I am loving myself and letting God provide. He always does and, I’ve learned, He always will provide. I recently left a relationship that I had planned on never leaving. I thought I was going to marry him. Then things changed. He wasn’t happy with me and I had become unhappy as well. Things were messy on and off and we are on good terms now but it has been really difficult. My beautiful puppy Ka’ula brightens my every day. She truly is my joy and bestest baby ever! My next support is Shaye. I could go on and on about all the things she does for me and with me. I wouldn’t have made it this far without her. Then there’s Michael. I’ve known him for almost 8 years. He has seen me through every hardship of my adult life. Now he holds the title of being my boyfriend as well as the title of daddy to Ka’ula. He makes me smile all the time with his cute nerdiness. I’m very happy with him right now. He understands me and is always willing to work it out. Well, it seems the children require my assistance. Thank you for reading, I will hopefully be posting my next story soon.
