Welcome to Morgan Makes

 

I’m terrible at cooking. Like, really, really awful. I once almost burned the house down trying to make macaroni and cheese, and that was just while using the microwave. I also can’t spread mustard on bread without getting it all over myself. These are just two simple statistics—among many—that prove I am highly challenged in the kitchen.
