Chloe's Vegan Italian Kitchen

This week has been so busy but so fun! Monday was Chloe Coscarelli’s book singing for her new cookbook, Chloe’s Vegan Italian Kitchen.

I also entered the bake-off competition! I was so excited because I had never entered any sort of cooking competition before so I was really looking forward to the challenge.
