Food hacks? Yes Please!

There is one general theme on Instagram Stories now and it’s— COOKING. Yes, everyone is cooking! You’ve probably noticed many of the people you follow are whipping something up whether it be making bread from scratch, milk, coffee concoctions, etc, you name it and we’ve also probably done it!

If you’re one to cook then you probably know how therapeutic and calming cooking can be (if you’re not rushing, of course) but if you aren’t, it’s okay too cause even just watching somebody else cooking can give off the same effect.
