I’ve been spending an increased and possibly alarming amount of time mindlessly scrolling through food videos and reels on Instagram lately. Can you relate? Anything to take my mind off, well, everything. It’s soothing, and gives me positive things to look forward to: namely, baking challah and trying some new braiding techniques. Or maybe just ogling some Internet carbs.
