oh wow ^.^ this is my first time in this forum lol. I suck at cooking [Razz] Well i can make stuff as long as i have instructions right in front of me [Smile] But that means paper near a fire... and that don't mix well lol. My boyfriend knows about that [Big Grin]

My lil tree kinda lost all of its buds and a lot of its leaves >.o so that sucks. But its on my mom's back pourch, so it should start producing new buds ^.^ I tried breaking open and tasting the inside of the new pods right after the flowers came off of em though! Tastes just like a lime! I'm so excited that i grew one! But i'll be sure to try out all of those! Luckily the computer happens to be in the kitchen [grin]
